It works! It's the right one! Replaces my old, discontinued WB08X10051
on October 27, 2012
The light for my GE Profile JVM1790SK Convection Over-the-Range Microwave Oven died about 6 months ago, and I saw the part number was discontinued, and this was the replacement. But the wattage looked higher than the old one specified in the manual (the manual says to "Replace with 120 volt, 40 watt (max) halogen bulb. Order WB08X10051"). Anyway, I went to Home Depot and got the replacement for the old part number (I think it was a Sylvania). That one was definitely brighter than the old one. It got kind of hot, actually. And the dim setting wasn't as dim as I would have liked (I use it as a night light). And it burned out in about 6 months (I got 2 years out of the factory light).
But this one (even though it's the new part number) performs JUST like the old one - same brightness (I have 2 settings) as the factory light. It's exactly what I needed. I've seen some complaints about it, I can't imagine why. If you have the same oven as mine, or your manual specs the same discontinued part # as mine did - WB08X10051 - this one is a perfect replacement.
