I have just worked on a 1983 model and found that if you pull the unit out away from the wall you will find a little cover with one screw in it, remove the cover you will find the bulb.

Default Hi

We have the GE Dual Wave Microwave System as well. The heating elements in the oven are heating slowly. We know we will have to buy a new system soon but for now we are interested in giving this one a bit more life. Does the heating element part ( AP2031031) apply to both the top and bottom elements? The elements do not get red hot when we turn on the oven -- just kind of warm.

Model # JKP62G0K3

Thanks! Dominique

Hi Dominique,

If the both, broil and bake, elements are not getting red hot, then the problem most likely is a bad oven thermostat and/or the oven selector switch. Unfortunately both of them are no longer available.

You may want to check the circuit breakers for the oven and the wires inside the control panel and on the back of the oven. Otherwise it's time for a new oven.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for General Electric JKP62G*K3 Electric range | AppliancePartsPros.com

Gene, I saw you posting on replacing the light bulb in this particular GE microwave. I have theould you GE JKP67G*J3 with the same problem. Could you send me instructions on how to open the control panel so I can get to the bulb?

The light bulb can be behind the top grill or behind the control panel. Unfortunately I do not have more specific instructions for this model.
