I found this on another board...

It's not THAT difficult to get to, and you only need a Phillips screwdriver (and a helper.) You'll have to pull the oven unit out of the wall:
Shut off the power first - make sure you get both ovens!
1. Open the lower oven door.
2. Remove the two screws holding the side trim in place, down low.
3. Pull the side trim pieces off to expose the screws holding the oven in the cabinet. Remove those.

At this point you're going to want some help, or get creative. You need to pull the oven unit out from the cabinet, and it's heavy. I rolled an automotive floor jack under mine with a piece of plywood, slid the oven out most of the way, then lifted the jack until it took most of the weight. I then pulled the oven out until just the back edge was resting on the cabinet edge.

4. Take a minute to study the top of the microwave and start locating the screws holding the top sheet metal panels down. You may also want to loosen the conduit clip and some other things to make it a little easier.
5. Remove the screws at the sides of the control panel.
6. Remove the screws holding down the top cover.
7. Remove the top cover, and the control panel (unplug all of the wiring harnesses.)
8. Remove the horizontal screws around the sides near the top that are holding down the next layer of metal. There are two in the back, you'll have to get behind the oven. I rotated mine in place just enough.
9. Remove the two vertical screws at the front corners.
10. At this point you should be able to lift up the panels in the front just enough to get to the light bulb.

It's a 5W 12v G-4 base halogen bulb. Squeeze and release the spring clip holding in the bulb socket, then pull the bulb.

Then, as they say, installation is in the reverse order of removal. Hope that helps.

How to replace kitchenaid superba light bulb

The light bulb on the water/ice dispenser on our Kitchenaid Superba side by side refrig needs replacement. Easy! Right?
However it is screwed in so tightly and the location is behind the panel is so small, it it very difficult to get a grip on it to unscrew it!
We,ve tried rubber gloves, WD-40 and an Exacto knife(w/ fuse turned off!) and still cannot get this very annoying light bulb out!!
Does anyone have any ideas or can we remove panel it hides behind to get to it!!!???
Thanks for any info on this should be simple issue!!

I need to replace my kitchenaid superba over the oven microwave light bulb. where can i buy a new one and does the existing twist or pop out?

Your owner's manual should have the part numbers and instructions for replacing them.

You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.

If the manual does not cover it, then it's not designed for the owner to do, you would need to remove the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here. I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

Once you get new bulbs in, if they still won't come on, or if they're stuck on, or you have trouble with either fan, the surge of the failing bulb may have damaged the board.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or two.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan, cooling fan, turntable, and/or inside light operation, too.

Details of our service are at our Web site, along with a video showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Feel free to contact me directly with your brand, full model number and symptoms.

Burned out bulb on Kitchen Aid Microwave Model KBMC140

You will need to remove the oven from the wall and remove the outer cover.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download your owner's manual and installation instructions free from this page.

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

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

You should be able to get one from a home center or local appliance parts store.

If you order it online (from the link above) it is part # 4375348.

I need to rplace the bulb in the interior of the microwave. It's loose in the top housing.

some of the front(vent) covers have a sliding hook I think you need to push it to the left. You should be able to access the bulb when you get that off.
