Question about KitchenAid KEMC377K Convection / Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I just changed the buld out in my superba microwave. It stayed lit even with the door closed. The bulb is no longer working, but neither is the microwave. I get a DOOR message. The door latches work correctly and the microswitches appear to be fine. What is wrong?

Why my Daewoo microwave oven blows the fuse only when the door gets closed while when it startre with the door opened the bulb is lit and so is the control board until the door is closed then it blows


Hi. The fact that the fuse blows when the door is closed is quite logical. There are safetyswitches preventing the oven to start with an open door. As to the fuse blowing, There are 3 possibilities: the High voltage trafo is defective, the voltage doubler diode or the capacitor are defective. You must be VERY CAREFULL when working on these parts: the voltages are LETHAL.

Hi!! My Kitchen Aid superba microwave oven says door and the door seems to work okay. Any suggestions?


the micro switch is probably faulty which tells the machine the door is actually closed or open. this would need replacing which means pulling the unit apart.
hope this helps

Kitchenaid superba combo. Microwave gives


HI, this is an indication of a failed door switch. When the switch fails, the control cannot recognize the closed door signal. Simply replacing the door latch mechanism will solve this issue.

Replace the door latch assembly, asap.

Have a Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave. Light bulb


no, no, no,,,its far to dangerous for you to open up the case of your microwave to change a light buld,,,
dont even think of going in there,,,
inside your microwave there are 1000,s of volts stored up in a capacitor if you tuch it you could kill yourself
have you ever seen a police stun gun working,,
it realy hurts you,,,,,
inside your microwave is the stun guns big brother
it dont just stun you,, it could kill you,,,
thats why you dont go inside it ok,,,
the light buld can be changed from inside the case normaly if it cant be, then drop it in the shop for a repair or use it with out a light in it,,
dont try and kill yourself just for a light buld

How to change light bulb? The light that goes on when the microwave is working burned out. How do I change it?


remove the vent cover on the top of the unit above the door
two srews should be holding it down from the top
slide the vent off
you should see a mtal plate
remove that and the buld should be underneath

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're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
