George-Allsorts :

Hello, my name is George..

You should take the appliance to a microwave technician to have the bulb replaced as the cover of the microwave needs to be removed to access the bulb holder under the cover, near to the vent holes you can see from the inside of the appliance.

Microwaves can give dangerous shocks!!! If you are going to do this yourself, please ensure that you remove the power from the appliance and keep your hands away from other areas whilst in the process of removing the cover and changing the bulb...

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.

Customer:

How typical of Sanyo to make replacing a light bulb so awkward....this is a job for this afternoon. Is the bulb a standard oven bulb ie 25w SES E14 ?

George-Allsorts :

One moment please whilst I find this out for you
