Possibly the cover of the light needs unscrewing.

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

How to change light bulb in microwave?


Found this post on another fixya-type site: below is the link..
Here's a repeat of Kai's instructions so you don't have to scroll down. I just replaced mine and it was a snap. Just a few Phillips screws and a few tugs. No need to pull the unit completely out as you can access the bulb after it's about half way. No need to disconnect any wiring harness except pulling the bulb out of its socket. I used the 10w (G4 12V) replacement bulb from Home Depot at $6. The light is a bit brighter but there've been no problems with fuses.


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.

Need to change burned-out light bulb in microwave ... no visible way to remove old one?


Basically you will need to slide the microwave out of the oven shell to gain access to the top side of the microwave, then it's a simple swap. To do this, you will need to remove the side rails * screws, pull the entire oven forward. Remove 2 screws holding the control panel at the top and remove both the plastics vents above and below the microwave. The remove 4 screws, 2 on each side that hold the microwave to the shell. Next you need to pull the microwave forward from the shell like in the picture part way out. Mine was tight and took more force than I expected so I was not sure if I got all the screws or not. It was eventually persuaded. Make sure the power is switched off and don't pull the entire oven on top of you. Have fun._509.jpg

Need to replace light bulb in kitchen aid microwave


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.
