Interior light in GE convection/microwave

The interior light on our GE Spacemaker oven went out and I can't find it. There doesn't appear to be any access from inside and the diagrams online show a 12v bulb but not exactly where it is or how to get to it. GE customer service told me to pull unit and take it to a repair shop. For a light bulb?????? Can anyone give me a hint as to where/how this thing comes apart to get access?

I replaced the light bulb using the method in this web page. It might not be exactly identical to yours, but it should be close enough to work.

I have a GE mod #JVM1490BD 003 microwave the interior light - Fixya

It's fairly easy. Be sure and not touch the new bulb with your bare hands. The oils in your skin causes hot spots which causes the bulb to burn out faster. Give it a try.

I don't believe it's a 12 v lightbulb. More likely 120 v. Is the light in the back, side, or front of the ceiling of the oven? If a plastic or glass lens covering the light can't be removed from inside the oven, you'll have to gain access to the area above the location of the light. If it's in the front, then remove the trim above the door and start looking there for access. If it's in the back, you'll probably have to remove the oven from the cabinet to get to the bulb cavity.
