Question about Kenmore 63792 Microwave Oven
I report a solution from MicrowaveSvc
, you can contact them to get support and spare parts:
I quote:"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.
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.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
That should tell you where the lamps are located."

Remove the casing to access the lamp. This is a way all counter-top microwaves
made and it's done for consumers protection. I would recommend to remove the old
lamp and take it to any hardware or electronic supply store to match it up. Though on this model microwave the bulb itself can be up to about $60 for a replacement. It may be more cost effective to buy a cheap replacement then to replace a $60 bulb.
