We see this a lot. The problem is almost certainly 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.

The light bulb assembly (bulb and socket are all one piece) is part number
WB36X951.

It is located on the air duct assembly where the door switches are mounted.

You can see an exploded view diagram here.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb assembly.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

See these links before proceeding:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (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.

If you're not able to find the bulb assembly at your local appliance parts store, you can order one here.

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.

The problem is likely on the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

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