GE gets it wrong on microwave bulbs
I have a GE Advantum microwave which originally has a 12 volt halogen bulb with a G8 base plug. GE shows the microwave halogen bulb WB36X10177 (Interior light) as original (OEM) which was replaced by WB36X10163; the problem is these two bulbs have a G4 base (connector to plug), and they are also 120 volt. The OEM bulb has a G8 base connector (not compatible with G4) AND it's a 12 volt (not 120 v). According to GE customer service they discontinued the 12 volt bulbs, so you would need to REWIRE the the microwave to accept 120 volt bulbs, AND change the plug for the bulb to take a G4 base light bulb.
