Grilling Halogen & Quartz Replacement Bulbs and Paint coming off handle
Hi: Where can I order replacement Grilling Halogen & Quartz Replacement Bulbs for the Whirlpool GH6177XPS Microwave Oven?
Is there anything I can do about paint scrapes on the handle? The oven is less than 2yrs old and looks the paint comes off it if you scratch it with your fingernails. I went to two Sears stores than they all hand the same issue with that oven.

You are asking about a Microwave oven...right?
They usually don't use halogen bulbs. Just a standard incandescent bulb. Don't need super bright in Microwave oven.
Take the bulb out and note the Voltage, Wattage and Shape & Size of the base. Bayonet or Screw etc. some details may be stamped on bulb.
Replacements can be had from many sources. Hardware / Electronics... depends where you are.
If the bulb is halogen for a vehicle headlight for example... take original or photo to an automotive shop.
It's a little more complicated than Leo2 suggested but the general concept is correct. *NOTE: Turn off power to the microwave first before servicing it!
At the top of the microwave there are three screws.
Remove the three screws and slowly pull down from the top to get the plastic airvent out of your way.
You will notice a plastic vent with two screws. Remove the forward screw and then pull from the top of the vent to access the rear screw. Now you have access to a metal plate above the fan assembly. Remove the screws at the leading edge to lift up the plate. You don't need to remove it, just lift it up!
Now you have access to the metal box over the lightbulb. Squeeze the box and the box with the light bulb inside come out as one unit. You'll know you have the correct bulb as it is attached to two white wires. Remove the bulb. Should be a halogen 120-130 volt with 35 watt brightness. Remember, halogen bulbs should never be handled with your bare hands. The grease from your fingertips heats up and the bulb burns out prematurely. Always handle these bulbs with rubber or cloth gloves. They are expensive little sucks ($7.79 at Home Depot) so handle them with care!
Good Luck ...
