COULD I GET A PART NUMBER FOR A LIGHT BULB FOR KENMORE MICROWAVE MODEL #401.80089700

    Ridiculous that this is not marked. Too many bulbs that look like that but are slightly different. Oh, and the darn thing went out after less than 1 year of ownership.

    I want to make sure - is this the external hood light bulb or the internal oven light bulb. I need a replacement for the external hood light.

    thanks

Trying to change the light bulb on my kenmore microwave model #72162369200. How do you get to it?


Not sure on your model but my Kenmore Microwave has the bulb up above the plastic ceiling inside.
It's semi-rigid so you flex it slightly and the tangs come free and it comes down.

Kenmore Microwave 721.66319 500 Light buld gone out - now what?


First of all, since this will involve disassembly, we have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site in our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams for your Kenmore model here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com

Enter your model number as 721.66319500.

The light bulb is shown in the "LATCH BOARD PARTS" diagram and it's located in the area of the door switches.

Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

It's best not to touch the bulb with bare skin, as the oils can shorten thee bulb's life. And I recommend a high quality bulb from places like Home Depot, instead of cheap types from the grocery store.

We see this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

The 5-digit number above is not a complete model number.

If you can post the full model number I can probably give you a link to the explode view, or you can find it here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

How do I replace the bulb inside the oven?


Your 'model number' is incomplete. Find the proper number and go to: http://www3.sears.com/ Enter the model number and you should be able to bring up a parts diagram to show you where the bulb is and which one you need.
