Question about KitchenAid KBMC140HSS Convection/Microwave Oven
Does any one have the bulb replacement instructions for the Kitchenaid KBMC140HSS? Thanks
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.

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.
