• ** REMEMBER! **The microwave can still shock you even unplugged!!

    ALWAYS discharge the high-voltage capacitor first if you even think your hands will come close to any HIGH VOLTAGE components.

    Jeff mentions this: Anything in the high voltage ( magnetron, capacitor, diode, wires to and from ):
    ...Use a metal ( not the shiny chrome type ) screw driver with a insulated handle to short across ( touch both at the same time ) the terminals of the high voltage capacitor to discharge it.

I'm struggling to find any documentation on replacing the microwave light bulb in my GE PT7800SH6SS. I posted on reddit with few replies, but one user said to remove the control panel to gain access to the top of the light bulb housing. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to remove the control panel. There is a plastic face underneath that i'm assuming has screws underneath it to release the panel. Can anyone walk through the process to replace the light bulb/remove the control panel to access the bulb?
