    A general note from someone who just did the replacement:  When you are trying to remove the green rails that guide the maintenance tray in, you might have to manually turn the pulley towards the back right side to free up space for the rail to come out.  I got one jammed and almost broke the rail.  Other than that, it all will take about 30-45 minutes depending on your skills.

    The steps listed below my post are pretty much straight out of the service manual.  There are kits that you can get through ebay that include steps and graphics.  Also remember to use a cloth or tissue to hold the replacement lamps because the oil from your hands will cause the lamps to overheat.  Good luck

I can write the procedure out here.
The lamps are 150 watt lamps, I normally buy the ones rated for 130 volts.
You need to first have torx bits or drivers for the screws.
Remove both side covers. There are 1 screw on the back of each cover and one screw on the front inside, that you have to open the front cover to access. On the upper part of the machine.
After removing the side covers, remove the maintenance tray and both green slide rails it sets in. Those small leaf springs on those green rails can have some scotch tape placed on them to keep them in place when re installing.
Then remove the stainless steel plate on the upper front. Its about 10 inches wide and 3 inches high. 2 screws hold it in place and 2 tabs on bottom.
Next you have to remove the registration roller assembly. It is the steel assembly about mid front. To remove that, you first have to remove the clutch and drive belt and gear from the left hand side of the machine ( looking from the front). Just one clip removes the clutch, the gear has a slot in it to get it past the clutch stop. Slide it and the belt off.
Now that registration assembly isnt difficult to remove, but can be anoying. One the left side of that assembly, there is a C slip with a tab on it, it holds the bearing in place. That clip has to be removed. Not a lot of room to access it, so have a longer thing screwdriver handy. And on the right side there is one torx screw holding it in. Also not the bearing on the right side stuck in the frame. I always take some white out or some glue and glue it into the frame when replacing the transport, It loves to fall out otherwise.
Once you remove that registration assembly, there are 2 screws about 8-10 inches apart on a beige plastic blocks. Remove those and you can then remove the heater assembly where those lamps are mounted. Replace the lamps. Take some emery cloth and clean the contacts to the lamps and reassemble.
Honestly if you just go slow and methodically it really isnt difficult. Just take your time.
I will say the Sylvania lamps, rated 150 watts, 130 volts with anti vibration coils in them never seem to fail.
Good luck let me know if there are any questions.

Both oven lights out

Are you buying hi quality oven grade lamps for this purpose that'll take the intense heat inside an oven? I wonder if they're halogen or tungsten filament lamps. Defective solder, frosty joints and/or ring fractures on lamp driving areas of a circuit board ARE indeed capable of causing problems with lamps.

How do you replace the light bulbs? There is a lens cover over the bulb.

This is how to replace the lights on the KitchenAid khlu162m hood. If this is not you hood please give the right make and model # so I can get you the right info.

Replacing the Halogen
The hood liner uses 12-volt, 20
watt halogen lamp bulbs.
Before you begin, make sure that
the range hood is turned off and
that the lamps have had sufficient
time to cool.
To replace a halogen lamp:
• Remove 2 screws from the
circular metal trim around the
lamp assembly.
• Pull the trim with the lamp
assembly attached down far
enough so that the lamp can be
pushed out of the socket clips.
• Insert the new lamp into the
socket clips and push the lamp
and trim assembly back up into
the hood.
• Replace the screws.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.

That code means the drum heaters are not working.
The good news is, yes you can fix it yourself.
The drum heaters are 2, 150 watt halogen lamps. One or both of them have blown out. If you want drop me an E-mail at
I will send you instructions how to replace them.
It would take 1 to 1 1/2 hours if you have never done it before. Lowes, Home Depot or any place that sells halogen lamps would have them.
I however, do highly recommend, if you can find them. Sylvania halogen lamps rated for 130 volts and have vibration protection. They cost slightly more, but well worth it. Besides even if you get those, you have less than $15 in the repair.
Let me know, I will send you the info. That's all your problem is.

Please help. error report, 15,004.45:54183

There is a set of 2 Halogen lamps in the machine that heat up the drum. They are 150 watt halogens, one or both have burned out.
The way you determine it is turn the lights out in the room the machine is in and then turn on the printer. Look on the right side of the printer, there is an exaust fan vent there. Look inside for lamps glowing, I very seriously doubt they will be glowing. If not the lamps are bad, When one goes out neither will work.
If you want to attempt replacing those, let me know I can forward you some instructions.

There are 2 -150 watt halogen lamps in the machine that heat the drum. One or both are blown out.
Turn the lights off in the room with the printer then turn the printer on. Look on the right side cover, you will see an exaust fan vent, look in there and after a minute or 2 see if you see lamps gloging inside the machine,( I seriously doubt you will). If not, those are bad. They are not real hard to replace, just take some time and patience to do.
Let me know if you want to try it.
They should cost less than 15 dollars at Lowes, home depot, or anywhere that sells halogen lamps.

Yep. The drum heaters are burnt out.
There are 2,,, 150 watt Halogen lamps that heat the drum.
The way to see if they are working or not is to turn off the lights in the office or room the printer is in. Turn the machine on and look through the fan slots on the right side of the machine. GIve it a minute or two and you should see lamps glowing inside, ( I seriously doubt you will see them comming on).
That is a very common problem, You can purchase those lamps at Lowes, Home Depot or anywhere you can purchase halogen lamps. They cost about 12 dollars for a good pair.
Replace both .. If you want to try and do it yourself. Let me know I will send you directions.

One of the halogen lamps that heats the drum has gone bad.
You can tell by shutting the machine off, and easiest if you turn the office or room lights off.
Once you shut the machine down, on the right side cover,( looking from the front its the right) there is a vented area, some rectangular slots where the exhaust fan blows outward. As you power on the machine look into the machine via those slots. In a 1-2 minutes you should see a pretty decent glow inside the machine, IF those lamps are working, I very seriously doubt you will see any light inside the machine. If you don't, you know one or both of the lamps are bad.
They are simply 120 volt , 150 watt halogen lamps, The 4 inch length lamps. They can be purchased at any Lowes, Home Depot etc. If you want to try replacing those yourself let me know and post me your E-mail address and I will send you the directions. Should cost you less than $20 to fix. Xerox will want about $250 to just show up and close to another $300 for the heater assembly which you DO NOT need.

Printer problem

Yep, that is an easy one.
The drum heaters are not working.
Easy way to tell is this. Turn the machine off, then turn the lights off so you can see the lamp glow better.
Look into the fan slots on the right side of the machine after you turn the machine back on. You should see an incandescent glow in the drum area. Give it a minute or two to come on, but I seriously believe you will see any lamps coming on.
Those are simple 120 volt 150 watt halogen lamps what warm the drum. One or both of them have blown fillaments.
They are a little time consuming to replace, and takes more patience than skill to do.
If you want a procedure for changing those let me know. You can buy them at Lowes or Home Deopt, anywhere that carries halogen lamps. The better ones cost less than $20 a pair, Xerox would want more than $200 for that assembly, when all is wrong is a couple of lamp filaments.
