Its a built in microwave and the bulb is inaccessible according to manufacturer which really means If it is past warranty you need to remove the unit. This is the document for proper installation: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Installation%20Instructions%20-%208205303.pdf

So just follow the steps in reverse, then you will have to take the top of the unit apart here is a link to an exploded view of you'r microwave along with the parts list http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Repair%20Part%20List%20-%208205649.pdf
I guess they think the bulb will last a long time you probably got a dud;)

How to replace light bulb in microwave model MMV5208WW-1


The support page with free manuals is here.
http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?searchTerm=MMV5208WW1&siteCd=WHRCOM&userType=Consumer

The owner's manual says:

Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent
grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb
cover, and is replaceable. Remove two screws on the vent
grille, tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and
replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure
with screws.

Cooktop light: The cooktop light bulb is located on the
underside of the microwave oven, and is replaceable. Remove
bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace bulb,
close bulb cover, and secure with screw.

To remove the grille, see my video at microwavecontrol.com.

How do i change the bulb on ag821azh microwave x2


follow this steps and use the VOM for fix it. God bless you

Light Bulb

If the microwave light bulb is not working it is usually located behind the upper grille and behind an access panel, and above the lower panel. On counter top units you will need to remove the outer cover to get to the bulb. If that doesn't solve the problem check the on-off switch, and control board

Main Control Board

If the microwave light bulb is not working check the light bulbs, sockets and wiring. If they are good the main control board might be defective.





Light Bulb Socket

If the microwave light bulb is not working and a new light bulb doesn't solve the problem, the light bulb socket might be burned out and need to be replaced.

GE JVM1640WB004 light bulbs break off when trying to replace them


GE uses a bulb that includes two flat pins. It looks like a bulb and removable socket, but it isn't. Just a way to cost you more. The bulb is removable from the top where it's mounted, and removed from the hole that it sticks vertically down thru. 1. You have to remove the unit cover to get to the bulb. 2. You have to unplug the connector to remove the bulb. 3. You have to squeeze two plastic pins, to extract the bulb from its location. This is not a common bulb; good luck finding one.

I want to change the light in my microwave. Panasonic nn-p704sw. I took apart the covr and foung the light attached to a plastic scockrt. I tried to unscrew but the bulb was tight. should i apply more...


Typically the bulb will unscrew from the socket. If you can remove the bulb and socket with the wire from the microwave (wire hanging from the microwave) you might be able to get more pressure on the bulb to turn it. Keep in mind that the bulb may have been in the oven for several years and there may be a build of grease on the treads of the bulb so it could be really stuck. Put a cloth towel around the bulb and wear gloves so you don't cut your hand if the bulb were to shatter.

HOw do i replace the inside bulb?


Hi. I just told you, there is no acces for the bulb in microwaves. Bulb replacement is not supposed to be a user level maintenance operation. You will need to remove the microwave outer cover to replace the bulb.

Here again my instructions: How do I replace light bulb.

Regards.

Microwave


im not sure what a magic chef bulb is but you can check by opening the casing, the bulb is normally mounted on a fiber board and screwed on the metal part of the microwave,remove the two wires attached to it first, after unscrewing the screw, you can pull out the bulb holder and you can see if it is a replaceable bulb if it has a socket. you can use the old bulb holder , just replace the bulb. in some design, the bulb is mounted directly to the bulb holder, you have to buy the bulb mounted directly to a new bulb holder and use them all as an assembly. be sure to screw them back tight. tnx. i hope i was able to help.

Broken bulb


Get yourself a cork from a bottle of wine (wait to drink the wine until after you've removed the bulb!). Now, with the power plug REMOVED from the wall socket, gently but firmly press the cork into the broken bulb. You should now be able to screw the broken bulb out of the socket. If there's not any bulb glass or shards or anything else for the cork to grip, you may need to insert a small pair of pliers into the socket, and with reverse pressure (i.e. pulling the handle apart as opposed to squeezing together) you may be able to remove the bulb. And if that doesn't work, well, keep trying. You just need to be creative. Try using needle nose pliers and grabbing the edge of the bulb socket and gently work to loosen (remember lefty loosy, righty tighty) turning counterclockwise to remove.
