Accessing the internal light bulb on model KBMC140HSS bulb will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Whirlpool / Kitchenaid owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

These models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Light has burnt out


R-820BK/BW Microwave Operation Manual
Due to the risks of death or serious injury the above owners manual suggests that a burnt out light demands a service call by a qualified technician.
That said, if you have a basic level of competence and read the safety hazards involved with microwaves (see a good resource on microwave safety and repair at:
http://www.kellerstudio.de/repairfaq/sam/micfaq.htm
Often, the microwave is divided into two main compartments, the electronics compartment(usually immediately behind the front control panel), and the high voltage compartment(usually behind the electronics compartment). The light bulb is likely in one of these two primary compartments. If it is in the high voltage compartment with the HV Capacitor and magnetron, changing the bulb becomes much more dangerous.
Please be very careful if you do decide to do this on your own... unlike most electronics microwaves can remain lethal, even when unplugged. Hope this helps.

Lights and vent do not work


I have ran into a few of these that shorted out the control board when the light bulb burnt out. Depending on how far you want to go, you can take out the board and look for a burnt spot and possibly repair the board. Or purchase a new board, which may be more than what you want to put into the microwave.

After changing a blown oven light, the clock works but nothing else turns on, including the fan, light, microwave


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 control circuit board needs to be removed and repaired. We routinely repair these from customers nationwide for $32.50. It sure beats the cost of a new board!
