Question about Kitchen Ranges
I see that you were able to help another DIY'er with replacing their microwave bulb. My microwave has to be pulled to access the bulb. Kitchenaid offered ZERO help with this. I can't figure out how to pull the microwave. If possible, please describe the procedure, and/or point me to the service manual that describes it.
Thanks very much for your help.
I just replaced the bulb on my KEMS308GSS2 and it wasn't too difficult. The bulb was $36.45 delivered from A-1appliance.com.
To change the bulb first turn off the power, then remove the plastic grills above and below the microwave unit. The bottom grill comes out easily, but the upper grill has a flange which makes it difficult to reinstall unless the flange is sawed off or the control panel is partially removed. To remove the control panel open the lower oven door and remove the screw at the bottom of each trim piece. Remove the trim pieces and then the two screws securing the control panel. With the two grills removed take out the two screws below the microwave which hold it in place. carefully slide the microwave out about half way, remove the insulation pad over the bulb and replace the bulb.

replace the light bulb first remove the screws located on the vent grill at the
top of the microwave, tilt the grill back and then pull away to remove. After
this open the light cover , you have to remove the screws so that you can
discard the old light bulb and then replace it with a new one. Please get back
to me if you have any other questions.
