Kenwood Microwave 564.8568511 Light Replacement

I am unsure of how to replace the light for a Kenwood Microwave model 564.8568511. I removed the bottom cover containing the filters and it appeared nothing else needed to come undone for the microwave to slide out. I am trying to fix for my parents who have horrible eyesight.

Ifthere's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner'smanual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

You can usually find Kenmore exploded views and order parts by entering your model number (564.856511) at the Sears parts site.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

Ifit's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top andsee if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottomcovering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances areyou'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. Ifso, the installation instructions are very handy, 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.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph besides the link to the Sears site.

Thescrews you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a specialdriver (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.

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

SilverCrest Microwave SMW 800 A1 Bulb replacement instructions please


You have to remove the outer cover but be aware that after removal you are exposing yourself to potentially lethal voltages even with power removed. Remove the old lamp and install the new lamp you have kept on hand for this occasion. Reinstall the cover but test operation before reinstalling all hardware in case the replacement lamp does not work.

I need 3 light bulbs for this model


You did not indicate the brand and model number of your microwave.

Many use a regular 40 Watt oven bulb as a replacement.

Simplest is to remove one light bulb and take it to a retail outlet that has a lighting department and make sure your purchase the same type to replace all three.

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs


My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.

How to change the light bulp inside the oven?


Bulb replacement is not straight forward on this model, it requires the oven to be removed & stripped to gain access to the interior lamp... I recommend replacement by a Siemens engineer.

Handle broke off,ordered replacement unsure how to install


The door handle can easily be replaced on most microwave ovens by simply removing the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to access and/or replace the door handle:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement

The average cost for a replacement handle usually averages about $20 - $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided. However, price and configuration of your oven also depends upon the MODEL NUMBER.


If you have any questions, please post back with your complete model number and let me know. I hope this helps you.
