SOURCE: How to replace light bulb

Hello, W/D here.

Sorry it took so long to get back to you, the internet crashed, and I had to look at a few things, just to be sure.
It turns out that your oven lamp replacement is very close to an Advantium lamp replacement.
You have to remove the microwave from the wall cabinet, and remove the sheet metal surround. Then, you can access the bulb for replacement. The part # for the bulb is # 4375348 (whirlpool). These are available at Lowe's, H/Depot, or any appliance parts supply store.

I have an Advantium, and after two replacements, I cut a hole in the sheet metal, and fitted a metal "peep-hole" somewhat larger than I needed to get to the screws holding the bulb, and I screwed the cover plate down to the sheet metal. The result was that I wound up being able to slide the microwave out about 6" and change the bulb as opposed to having to remove the entire microwave from the cabinet holding it.
Hope that this is just what you needed.
Respectfully yours, --W/D--
Please feel free to rate this solution! Thanks.

Whirlpool microwave model mh1150xmb

please test this steps and fix it. God bless you

  1. Light bulbIf your microwave light bulb is not working, perhaps it has blown. The first step is to replace the bulb and power on the microwave. If this does not correct the issue, the next step is to check the socket and wiring to verify if that is the problem.
  2. Light bulb socket & main control boardIf your microwave light bulb is not working after the installation of a new bulb, check the light socket as well as the wiring to ensure they are properly operating. If these sources are functioning properly, the next step is to check for a faulty control board as a possible root cause to your microwave light bulb malfunction.

I need to replace light bulb in Whirlpool built in microwave model # RMC 275PD. Is it necessary to remove unit from wall to replace the light bulb?

It looks like it, but if you look at the diagrams, maybe not.

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

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

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

The range-top light blew and now replacement bulbs

My Whirlpool/Roper microwave/hood combo has the same problem. I replaced the bulb twice, checked the bulb and it works, but not in the microwave. I wrote to Whirlpool asking about the problem. Haven't heard from them yet.

Whirlpool MH7140XFQ-1 light does not switch from regular to night

If there are 2 bulbs try swapping them around. If the night light works then you just need a bulb. Take the bad one with you and match it up at a parts store. Some actually have a dimmer circuit programmed in the board and that will not be a easy fix. Do you hear a click when you try to activate the night mode? If you cannot find a bulb or do not want to replace or repair the unit just disclose the non working light. I was in real estate for a couple years and a burned out bulb will not be a deal breaker as long as they are told up front.

The light is not on in the microwave when I open the door

Depending on the model, you might NOT be able to replace the bulb yourself.

With many microwave appliances the bulbs are located in a secure area away from the cooking area of the machine. If you look inside the oven, you should see an area that looks like a grill of sorts. This is most likely where the bulb is located and might not be readily accessible for you to replace unlike a conventional oven light bulb is.

Verify first where the bulb is located. If it is located in an enclosed area of the oven, you might need to call for onsite service from Whirlpool to replace the bulb. Most likely this is the case. And you should ask yourself:

1- Is the unit in warranty still?
2- If YES, then call Whirlpool Service to have it worked on
3- If NO, then ask yourself, how much do I really need a light, because to have someone come out and service the unit will cost about $100+ USD to get it working again.

I know this is not what you wanted to read as a solution, but it might be the only thing to do. There is no listed part number for a replacement bulb therefore, it is a service installable part only.

Hope this helps you out.
