Question about Kenmore 62702 Microwave Oven
Cannot figure out how to open inside panel to change inside light bulb.
The full model number is #363.62709200. There is a large circular access panel in the inside top of the MW. Even has arrows for open and close but it want budge. There appears to be a nipple there to push to allow the panel to turn left to open and right to close. However, it also will not budge. It is a Sears Kenmore vented over the stove model.

The 5-digit number above is not a complete model number.
If you can post the full model number I can probably give you a link to the explode view, or you can find it here: http://www3.sears.com (the 3 is correct)
Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.
You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.
In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.
Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
