the light cover at the back of the oven needs to be unscrewed. There is normally 2 or 3 little screws involved. Once it has been removed it's like any other light bulbs, unscrew and change. Make sure to put back the cover tightly in place or the light will burn when the oven turns on.
Ok, pull the oven out, remove the 2 screws on side trim of oven, remove the screws from trim under oven, now above the oven, remove the other 2 screws behind the grill. This should give you enough room to pull the unit forward. The bulb is on top. Hope this helps.
KitchenAid wants $58 for the replacement bulb. I bought it for $1.99 from www.lightbulbsdirect.com and it works just fine. The Item number is Q5G412V. It is a halogen 5-watt, 12-volt bipen G-4. Replacing the bulb requires some dismantling of the microwave. At first I was nervous about removing so many parts to get to the bulb but in the end it really wasn't so bad. The only tool I needed was a Phillips screwdriver. I surfed the net a eventually found instructions left by a friendly Blogger that guided me through the whole process. KitchenAid engineers were so STUPID when they designed this microwave. It takes two hours to replace a bulb that should take 5 minutes. Oddly enough, replacing the bulb in the normal oven below the microwave oven is a piece of cake.
This is an older (Mfgr. May, 1987) microwave oven. Functions perfectly, works an looks good to this day, just no light inside. I searched a couple of websites looking for parts for this unit and appliancepartspros.com provided schematics of the product that I own. From those drawings, it was determined that the microwave oven will have to be slid out of the cabinet above the built-in oven in order to change a $2.37, 40W light bulb. Just a handfull of scrws retaining the oven and exhaust baffles and I'll get it out (onmce the New Year's Eve hangover disappears). The engineer who designed a system like this must have been on an Acid Trip. I haven't looked closely at newer microwave ovens, but I'd have to believe changing a crummy light bulb would have to be made easier than this during the preliminary engineering phase of design.
you ll need to pull unit out to replace bulb, 2 scrws remove side trim of oven, 3 or 4 screws remove trim under micro; above oven, 2 more screws behind that grill will release micro from supportthat should free it up enoug to slide foward 6 or 8 inches( the bulb is ontop of the cavity) good luck!
