Here is a solution to go about the glass bellow

Removing your microwave door allows you to quickly clean out any accumulated food or grease. This also makes it easy to get to all the crumbs and debris around the door hinges. While you have the door off its hinges, examine the plastic panel and glass window for signs of damage. Make sure you install a replacement door that is designed for your brand of microwave to ensure that it will fit correctly.

  • Remove the power cord from the electrical outlet and move your microwave onto a workbench or sturdy table. For cabinet-mounted microwaves, pry off the decorative grills or front panels and remove the mounting screws. You should then be able to slide the microwave out of its mounting bracket.
  • 2 Open the microwave door and remove the glass tray. Use a flathead screwdriver or putty knife to pry off the plastic cover on the inside of the door. Work around the edge of the glass until the cover slips free.
  • 3 Remove the door by pulling the mounting pins out of the hinges at the top and bottom. You may need an assistant to steady the door so you can have both hands free to work with the pins.

  • hope this solution help?

    How do you change the oven lightbulb?

    Most require 2 screws to be removed to lift the glass cover from over the bulb. Then simply unscrew the bulb and insert new bulb. A 1/4" nut driver is the best tool for the job.

    Oven light glass cover will not come off. Need to replace bulb.

    Easy, go to the garage and get the tool kit. Inside is a device called a hammer. Take the device in your right hand if you are right handed, lift in a backward fashion and thrust forward against the glass cover. Now it will come off.

    Replace light in KEMC378KSS microwave

    The oven lights are 12-volt, 5-watt maximum halogen bulbs. They
    will come on when the oven door is opened. On double oven
    models, both upper and lower lights will come on when either
    door is opened. The oven lights will not work during the Self-
    Cleaning cycle. When the oven door is closed, press OVEN
    LIGHT to turn them on or off.
    To Replace:
    Before replacing, make sure the oven is off and cool.
    1. Disconnect power.
    2. Remove glass light cover by grasping the front edge and
    pulling away from oven


    3. Remove bulb from socket.
    4. Replace bulb, replace bulb cover by snapping back into wall.
    5. Reconnect power.

    How to change oven light

    Which model Whirlpool range do you have? For most Whirlpool ranges that I have used , the oven light is covered by a screw-on glass cover. When the oven is cool, unplug the range, open the door and turn the cover counter-clockwise (to the left). Then remove the 40W bulb (again counter-clockwise rotation). Replace the bulb with another 40W appliance bulb. Then replace the cover by turning it clockwise until it is tight. Do not over-tighten either the bulb or the cover. Then plug in the power cord for the range. (Unplugging the unit makes sure that you will not get shocked if anything goes wrong. Sometimes the bulb may break in the socket - in that case, use pliers to unscrew the base of the bulb before replacing it with a new bulb.)

    Whirlpool has the manuals for most of their appliances on their support site: .

    I hope this helps.

    Can not remove light bulb from whirlpool oven

    I had similar difficulty. This worked for me after 45 mins grief.

    I got a heavy duty 1cm wide elastic band (length double was about 14-15cm). This is a common size heavy duty elastic band in the UK.

    This elastic band is much too long to go around the glass bulb cover so I tied a knot in it so that i had a complete circle of rubber band tightly held around the bulb cover. Then I used a Mole wrench -a kind of large adjustable spanner - to undo the glass bulb cover. It came off easily because the rubber band gave sufficient grip to undo it. It is about 2.5 full turns anticlockwise to completely free it.

    I hope this will help the next viewer of this website.

    Pry back the bulb glass cover wire spring and remove glass cover. Use heavy rubber gloves or a plastic bottle opener(piece of serrated soft plastic/rubber) and unscrew counterclockwise.
