Question about KitchenAid KBMC140HSS Convection/Microwave Oven

How do I replace a lightbulb in my Kitchenaid microwave?

The light burned out in my Kitchenaid Microwave oven, model KEMS307DBS.This is a built in unit with the microwave oven on top and the thermal convection oven below. I believe the bulb is Whirlpool part number 4375348, a very small halogen unit. Do I have to take the entire oven assembly out of the wall or can one gain access to the top area to change the bulb? Any instructions and/or diagrams will be greatly appreciated. Andykool.

    Thanks Thentherewer, Your comments were certainly helpful. I went to the website and saw all the detailed information. Now I know the part I need and how to install the whole stove assembly into a kitchen wall. Unfortunately, I still do not know exactly what I have to do to install the light bulb into the roof of the microwave oven. If the only way is to pull out the whole oven first, it's probably too big a job for me, and I'll have to call in an expert (at a cost of about $150). Thanks anyway, Andykool

Built in microwave light bulb for kitchenaid


Need model number. If this is one of those built-in wall ovens with microwave on top (with the door that drops down), it is definately NOT something the average customer can do himself. It's a 45-minute job for an experienced technician!

When I turn on the micowave; smell somthing burning


The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be ready to burn out. If you smell the burning, you should then unplug the microwave, open it up and see if you can determine for sure that it is coming from that part. Unfortunately even if I am right, it is almost more cost effective to just replace the microwave rather than replace that part. You can run this microwave till it dies if you want, but I would be ready with a new one.

Let me know how this works out for you.

Lightbulb burned out for microwave model # KHMS 1850SSS-0 Kitchen Aid Where can I purchase a replacement? Thank you, Carrie


Most home improvement stores and even some Walmarts/Chain grocery stores/Ace Hardware carry replacements. You will need to remove the cover from the microwave oven on most models unless your bulb is inside a protective cover inside the actual oven. Take the bulb with you when you go to make certain of a proper match. Be certain to unplug the oven if you need to remove the cover in any case.

Replacing lightbulb in Sharp R953M combi microwave oven


most microwave ovens built in the last 20 years do not have an
access panel to the light bulb. you must remove the screws on the back of the microwave that hold the outer sleeve in place.
Then pull upward and backward on the sleeve to disengage it
from the front lip of the chassis. the light bulb should be close to the front of the microwave behind the control panel. Some lights
are not unscrewable from the socket, but the socket and bulb
come as an assembly.
