    if the voltages are the same then yes should be fine to use.

If the 0.77 micro-farad cap has a tolerance of +/- 20%, then you're ok. But a tolerance of
+/- 10%, +/- 5%, or +/- 1% would exclude the 0.9 micro-farad capacitor as a replacement.
The tolerance colors that qualify are black and gray, see the capacitor color code reference at:

Our microwave MH6150oxhq-1 has worked perfectly until yesterday when i went to press start the clock numbers started flashing and poof dead!! It seems like I have NO power to the unit, Is there a way to...

If it doesn't come back after you unplug it and plug it in again, you probably have a blown fuse or thermal protector. If it is a thermal protector, just replace it - they do sometimes break spontaneously. If it is a fuse, have the high-voltage capacitor checked to see if it shorted. Generally if the capacitor is shorted, it is a good idea to also replace the high-voltage diode since it carried the short-circuit current that blew the fuse.

I assume by "clock numbers ... flashing" you mean the normal timer countdown began. If there was abnormal behavior on the display you have a controller problem. This could be anything from a failed power supply capacitor (relatively cheap fix) to a bad controller chip (only available on a replacement control board that costs almost as much as the oven itself unless you get lucky enough to find one on a junker of the same model).

Siemens HB86E560B/01 microwave oven.oven working ok.when selecting wattage for microwave it cutts out after approx.30 secs. higher the wattage selection the sooner it cutts off. is there an overload heat...

Please have your power rating checked on the outlet and also if possible measure the mains voltage on the outlet . If low this can trip the microwave as it runs short of current/voltage.
Also make sure the plug is tight on the socket. Choose a lower wattage and see if the microwave works a longer time. If so the microwave must be checked within for a faulty capacitor, magnetron , wave guide or transformer.

Clean the oven , check the connections within and try once again before we can infer.

How do i change light bulb for my oven

Here is a simpler method from the same website mentioned in solution #1:
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.

By the way, the bulb is Osram 64405S. It's available online for about $2.00 plus shipping.

Microwave will turn on but not heat

Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).
