SOURCE: Have a Whirlpool RMC275PD microwave. Light bulb

If you see no removable panel inside the cavity, it will be necessary to remove the housing to replace the bulb. Because of the nature of microwave energy, the fewer sharp edges and other irregularities in the cavity, the happier the magnetron is since all those have some effect on the distribution of the energy and efficiency of the unit. That's why one should avoid having any larger metallic container in a microwave. Using aluminum foil to prevent the drying out of certain types of foods is permissible because the ratio between moisture content of the food and the reflection of energy caused by the foil is not significant and the energy is mostly absorbed instead of reflected.

Change light bulb microwave


If your owner's manual doesn't cover it, then you will have to do some disassembly, and may have to remove the oven from the wall, depending on the model number, which you did not mention.

But since you posted this is the Whirlpool microwave section, I'll assume that's it.

How do you change the bulb in a Kitchenaid microwave Model KBMC140HSS03


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

To replace the light bulb first remove the screws located on the vent grill at the top of the microwave, tilt the grill back and then pull away to remove. After this open the light cover , you have to remove the screws so that you can discard the old light bulb and then replace it with a new one. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Replace light bulb on Whirlpool GMC305PDS07 Microwave oven without a $150 service call. (The bulb does not unscrew from inside the oven.)


You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

On an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

See these links before proceeding:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had locally in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
