Question about KitchenAid KEHC309JSS Electric Double Oven
Would appreciate help with replacing the halogen bulb in the KEHC309JSS08 microwave/oven combo. The bulb burned out 6 months after purchase but is not covered by warranty and requires a service call. I find it outrageous that these ovens are designed in such a disadvantageous (for the customer at least) manner. Appreciate if you could provide service manual and or instructions.

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!

when you took down the control panel and gained acess to the upper cavity , there wasnt a service manual just to the left inside a red plastic bag???, if not there is another fuse loacted just behind the micro front looks to be atop the capacitor area

You have to pull the complete unit from wall, take top setion apart to get to lamp, do not attempt to change this lamp unless you have knowledge of electricity and what it can do to you if you FAIL TO TURN IT OFF FIRST.

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.

After using the microwave for a month, the amount of time to heat has increased significantly. For example, 1 cup water now takes 3 minutes to reach 158 deg and 4 min-40 sec to reach boiling (212 deg)
This model KEMS308SSS02 was installed in July 2008 in a new condo. It was never used until Feb. 2011 when we moved in as the first owners.
Any advice would be appreciated.
