Question about KitchenAid KEMC378KSS Electric Double Oven
Please can you tell me how to remove the light bulb from my arrow oven so i can replace it.
Here is a simpler method from the same website mentioned in solution #1:
1) Turn off power to the unit
2) Open the lower oven door
3) Remove the side trim screws and pull the trims down and out.
4) Remove 2 screws on the sides of the control panel.
5) Open the Microwave door. Remove the 3 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the microwave. You can then remove the Air Vent Cover by pushing the control panel up and pull out slightly at the bottom.
6) Remove the 4 screws on the Air Vent Plastic Cover on top of the lower oven and remove the Air Vent Cover. (You may have to remove the left under side bracket of the Microwave door temporarily just for the Air Vent Cover to clear the screw of the bracket. Re-secure the side bracket of the Microwave door panel as the front panel may fall)
7) Remove the 2 screws which held the Microwave unit in place behind the Air Vent Cover on step 6.
8) Wiggle the Microwave unit out about half way to expose the light bulb unit on top center
9) Wiring to the Control Panel will prevent you from pulling the Microwave unit out any further. And you don't want to do that as the unit may fall. Space is cramped, but working carefully with pliers you should be able to release the springs which held down the light bulb unit and change the bulb.
By the way, the bulb is Osram 64405S. It's available online for about $2.00 plus shipping.

To replace the bulb on kitchenAid microwave:
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. [A chair may work just as well.]
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.
I found this solution at http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=51232 and it seems correct based on a conversation I had with a repair person at MMAB Appliances. Hope it helps.
