You would most likly have to remove the outside cover of the microwave once removed you should have access to the bulb but first make sure there is not an acess panel on the back or underside before removing cover and always make sure it is unplugged before servicing

Magic Chef microwave MCO160UW stopped working after trying to change the lightbulb.


First thing to do is unplug it and take a pair of needle nose pliers and get the base of the old bulb out and replace it. Microwave ovens have a lot of things wired in 'series' which means that is one switch,bulb or any thing else in the circuit goes out then the circuit cannot complete it's path and will not let the other parts function. It is a safety feature that is built into them. As in many things I think they over do the safety features but they didn't ask me when they built it. LOL! Try replacing the bulb and let me know how it works.

Can't figure out how to replace light bulb for model #721.66319


Sears Parts Direct lists the microwave, 72166319500 , as using the lamp, 6912W3B002L. This is available for $6.49 here: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Kenmore-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-72166319500/0582/0123245/50026833/00004?blt=06&prst=&shdMod= .

Unplug the microwave and wait a bit before starting to replace the bulb. To change the bulb, you first need to take off the entire cabinet (remove 4 screws on the back of the microwave and lift the part up). Then see the parts diagram on the page given above. There are 2 screws that hold the switch and bulb assembly to the frame of the microwave. I believe you should be able to pull the bulb housing down from the middle of the assembly and then push the unit up after replacing the old bulb with the new bulb. However, the bulb housing may have two screws holding it in place.

I hope this helps.

Need to replace both might lights under microwave.


Remove the screw from the lens cover and open lens. Turn light bulb counter clockwise and remove. Repeat this on other side. The bulbs or 40W appliance bulbs. Take the old one with you to hardware store to match it up. Reverse your steps to put new ones in.

I have a roper mounted microwave above my stove. i just need to know what kind of bulb goes underneath it.


Since you obviously intend replacing the bulb yourself (good for you!) you should first remove the old bulb and that will make it easier to find a new one. Chances are, its a common bulb, readily available wherever light bulbs are sold. Or, at the very least, a hardware store like Tru-Value or Home Base.

How do i replace the cooktop light bulb in my microwave oven?


I realized the light bulb was fixed using an adhesive (maybe a glue stick) that is why, I had a hard time removing the old bulb. After forcing it (and breaking the adhesive seal) I was able to replace it with a new one.

im not sure what a magic chef bulb is but you can check by opening the casing, the bulb is normally mounted on a fiber board and screwed on the metal part of the microwave,remove the two wires attached to it first, after unscrewing the screw, you can pull out the bulb holder and you can see if it is a replaceable bulb if it has a socket. you can use the old bulb holder , just replace the bulb. in some design, the bulb is mounted directly to the bulb holder, you have to buy the bulb mounted directly to a new bulb holder and use them all as an assembly. be sure to screw them back tight. tnx. i hope i was able to help.
