You can download the owner's manual and installation instructions here.

You can also download the parts manual here. It has handy exploded views. The bulb is shown on page 5 and is ref # 75.

You will need these instructions, because to replace the bulb, you will need to pull the microwave down from the wall mount and remove its cover.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

And it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

If you don't find a replacement locally, check here.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

I need detailed instructions on how to change light bulb on Kitchenaid microwave KBMC147HSS0


Please check the details of how a microwave works which will help you identify before the panel is removed and the lamp replaced.
The top cover of the unit can be removed after the screws can be removed with the power cord removed. The lamp can be seen fitted on the front side with the light to shine into the chamber, you can remove the buld from holder and replace with the same type .

How do you change the bulb in a Kitchenaid microwave Model KBMC140HSS03


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

To 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.

Microwave light is burnt out


Accessing the internal light bulb on model KBMC140HSS bulb will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Whirlpool / Kitchenaid owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

These models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Microwave bulb replacement


The oven will need to come down from the wall so the outer cover can be taken off. Then you'll see the light socket(s).

It's recommend due to the weight and awkwardness of the oven that two people do this job.

If you don't still have your installation instructions, you can download them here, but you should use you full model number, as opposed to the base KEM378.

This uses a fairly common halogen bulb, but I'm not sure of the wattage. It should be marked on the bulb or on a tag near the reflector.

You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Kitchenaid KBMC147HSS0 Bulb replacement


If it's the one that lights the cooktop, it's normally beneath the bottom cover.

In some cases, it's located in a compartment behind the grille that goes across the top of the unit.

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. It may help. It's at http://207.234.249.73/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg

Please let me know if that helps or not.
