Question about Microwave Ovens
Or when cooking, How do I find and replace the light? Whirlpool Microwave MH6600XW.
Depending on the model, you might NOT be able to replace the bulb yourself.
With many microwave appliances the bulbs are located in a secure area away from the cooking area of the machine. If you look inside the oven, you should see an area that looks like a grill of sorts. This is most likely where the bulb is located and might not be readily accessible for you to replace unlike a conventional oven light bulb is.
Verify first where the bulb is located. If it is located in an enclosed area of the oven, you might need to call for onsite service from Whirlpool to replace the bulb. Most likely this is the case. And you should ask yourself:
1- Is the unit in warranty still?
2- If YES, then call Whirlpool Service to have it worked on
3- If NO, then ask yourself, how much do I really need a light, because to have someone come out and service the unit will cost about $100+ USD to get it working again.
I know this is not what you wanted to read as a solution, but it might be the only thing to do. There is no listed part number for a replacement bulb therefore, it is a service installable part only.
Hope this helps you out.
