SOURCE: kitchenaid model KHHS179LSS Microwave oven handle replacement

There is a pin holding the door on upper right hand corner of the door. Holding the door in the open position, lift up on the door a little and remove the pin. The door will come off. There are two screws on the edges of the door on the end where the handle is located. Remove the screws. Now, Take a slim screw driver, and carefully pry between the inside door panel and the ourside door panel starting at the end where the door handle is. Lift the inside of the door out. The opposite end of the inside door panel will come out last. Believe me, this works. Getting it back together is a little bit different, but it snaps back together without using tools. Just put the inside of the door back by laying it down with the handle side down after you have replaced the handle of course. Now, pushing in on the inside of the door panel starting on the handle side, start with lining up the panel and push gently. It will go back into place much much easier than it comes out.

SOURCE: Lightbulb in Emerson microwave model MW8115 SS

Hello,

You have 3 choices to use on removing the safety screw(s) on the MW (microwave or nuker as I call them) cover.

1 - The screw(s) is/are usually a modified TORX T-20 or T-25 bit adapter. Sometimes you can very carefully use a standard T-20/25 bit adapter to get the screw loosened. Sometimes! If that doesn't work then you have option #2.

2 - If #1 doesn't work you can use a small flat blade screwdriver that has been modified with a slot cut into the center of the blade end to bypass the center pin. First find a narrow enough flat blade srewdriver that you don't care about anymore, and make sure it fits rather snugly inside the screw-head just for a loose fit. If the blade is a bit wider - no problem - it can be ground down to fit snugly. Next - using a dremel tool and diamond cutting wheel attachment (or similar) cut a slot into the end of the blade. Make sure that the screwdriver is going to bite the insides of that screw-head first though before wasting a perfectly good screwdriver. You will have to adjust by trial and error until you get the blade to fit perfectly the head of the safety screw. If the screws are really tight use a pair of vice grips to clamp the screwdriver blade for extra leverage.

If neither of these methods work for you or you can't modify a special tool then you will have to do the last option.

3 - Using an easy out of proper size drill out the center pin and then use the proper "easy out" to back out the screw. Discard that/those screw(s) and replace with regular phillips head screws after replacing the light bulb.

Hopefully you will be able to do this repair yourself? Otherwise if your neighbor is Tim the Toolman Taylor I'm sure he'll be able to give you the necessary hand to do it for you.

Hope this helps fix your dilema you are in.

One note here -

Make sure you unplug the nuker first and be VERY CAREFUL as to NOT TOUCH the HIGH VOLTAGE CAPACITOR inside. Otherwise you risk a chance of SEVERE HIGH VOLTAGE SHOCK!!!!!!!!!

BE VERY CAREFUL....

Best regards,

Frank

SOURCE: Changing light bulb in microwave oven

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

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

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

On an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. 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 owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Burned out light bulb


can u open the housing?. you can look at the spot where the light is and you can see a bulb holder screwed on the metal housing. it has two wires hooked up to that holder. remove those wires and unscrew the holder of the bulb. look closely at the bulb if it is fiited to the holder like an ordinary light bulb. if its like that then you can unscrew it and replace it. if its not screwed to the holder then you have to buy the whole bulb assembly at the dealer of your microwave. it is considered a special bulb only from the dealer you can get. i hope i was able to solve your problem..

Where is the light bulb located?


Unscrew the vent at the top of the microwave(2 phillips head screws)
inside to the right you'll see another screw holding a metal panel. Unscrew this and take the panel off and you'll see the bulb, which will unscrew counter-clockwise
