We have the service manual for models R-530BK and R-530BW and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print it.

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

If not, the best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

    Sorry if I misunderstand, but how is this answer possibly inappropriate?

    You have to take the outer cover off of the microwave to remove the light bulb.

    I provided you a link to the full service manual which gives you step by step safety and disassembly instructions.

    And I gave you several places where you could buy a new bulb.

    What more did you need?

Petiepie, that's the fixya.com website that's popping those ads. When you mouse over the word, the fixya website does that automatically (to generate revenue from click-thru's for ad dollars).

MicrowaveSvc had nothing to do with that and gave you a fair accounting of what to do, click on his "here" link and it will click through to the PDF that you can download. Seriously, such a n00bish reply. Ask for help if you don't understand what's going on instead of looking unappreciative. There is such a thing as internet etiquette and your reply was rude.

I will tell you why I rated you Inappropriate. When I put my arrow on uploaded I get a tab come up for C Spot. When I click on print I get a tab for HP hardware. When I click on home improvement I get a tab for Best By. All these tabs are advertisements, and they don't do me a damn bit of good. I cannot get to any of you help underlines because of advertisment tabs. You fix this and well both be happy as pigs in mud.

Hello William,

I see you got back to me and I dowloaded the manual, but not sure how to repair this microwave, the inside light is burned out

and the display numbers do not light up correctly, as if some of the pixels are burn out. So I need to know what I need to replace ( LCD panel)? where is the bulb located and how do you remove and replace it, It should be easy once I know what and where to go

Burnt out light bulb. how do you replace it?


It depends on the model, but many of them have an access panel on the back that is held in with a screw or two. Make sure you replace the bulb with the same type you take out.

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.

I have a sharp micro wave oven. Occasionally, when some foods are cooked or heated, you can see small bursts of blue flame. What I should do ? I only use microwave safe containers.


You probably have a burnt wave guide cover. Look inside the microwave either on the side or on the top, it's a square piece of mica board, and you should see a burnt spot on it. You should be able to replace it fairly easy with the model number I can check on a replacement for you.
