Question about Microwave Ovens
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.
