According to Kitchenaid, those lights are LEDs and should never need changing.

SOURCE: I need detailed instructions on how to change

Please check the details of how a microwave works which will help you identify before the panel is removed and the lamp replaced.
The top cover of the unit can be removed after the screws can be removed with the power cord removed. The lamp can be seen fitted on the front side with the light to shine into the chamber, you can remove the buld from holder and replace with the same type .

How do I change the light bulb in a KCM155j Mircowave


Most microwaves have a shield over the light bulb in the cooking compartment. Some are accessed from the outside most from the inside. Check to see if there are clips or screws that need to be removed to pull the shield off. Careful if there are screws, they are usually coated to prevent the waves from arcing if you crack or break off the coating you could have problems with the microwave arcing

On sub zero 690 like to change bulb in lighted electronic control panel


you will have to remove the light shield, remove the plastic trim that says the model number in front of the light shield, then the 2 screws holding the side cover on the left side of the fridge section. Then the cover will need to be pushed towards the rear of the fridge then tipped out at the front. It has springs holding it in the back.That should access the bulb you need to change

Light went out on refrigerator side


Your Sub-Zero unit contains standard 40 watt appliance bulbs in all compartments.

You'll need to remove the light shield in the top of the refrigerator or freezer to replace the bulbs. Place your hands under the light shield and release the two clips on the back of the light shield, then lift up and slide back slowly until the key slots on the side of the light shield drop past the mounting studs in the side walls. Then remove the shield.

The bulbs are now accessible.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

How to change the light bulb


Hi

Not all bulbs will fit your refrigerator. Be sure to replace the bulb with one of the same size, shape and wattage. On some models, the dispenser light requires a heavy duty 10-watt bulb. All other lights require a 40-watt bulb.

1. Unplug or disconnect power from your refrigerator.

2. Remove light shield when applicable.
NOTE: To clean the ligt shield, wash it with warm water and liquid detergent. Be sure to dry the shield thoroughly before installing.

3. Remove the light bulb and replace it with the same size, shape and wattage.

4. Replace light shield when applicable.

Can you please send me the directions to change the light bulb in my Kitchenaid Microwave Oven model # kemc308kss01?


Hi, just follow the instruction below...

1. Essentially, open the oven door and remove the plastic vent strip between oven and microwave (4 screws). There will be 2 screws under that which secure the microwave unit to the frame. Remove those...

2. Open the microwave door and remove the plastic vent shield at the top (3 screws). At that point, the microwave unit will slide out from the frame as describe above. The light is to the rear of the large silver pad (I removed mine to facilitate reaching the light). If you look at the parts diagrams online, it will be obvious what to look for. I have the light out and sure enough, OSRAM 64405S....
Took me maybe 5 minutes to remove...

Take care

Need to change the light bulbs


The light shield has two tabs, one on each side. They may be on the front or back of the shield, It fits either way. Pull the tabs down and slide the shield back and forth a couple of time and it should drop from the four pegs that hold it in place. You will have access to the bulbs. You can go to http://www.subzero.com/locator/locator.aspx?type=0&zip=02030 and find a parts distributor near you or take a bulb to the store and match it. Make sure you get the same wattage rating.
