Can you tell me the part number for a control board for this microwave and is it difficult to replace myself or do I need a technician to do it? Or should I just buy another microwave?
Answer Hello Scott! The control board is part number WB27X10866. No, these are not hard to repair. You shouldn't need a technician. Unplug the unit and remove the two screws in the top of the microwave securing the grill. Remove the grill and open the door and remove the screw securing the control panel in place. Pull out the control panel and remove the control board from the panel. Reinstall the new control board in reverse order. Make sure the wires are installed on the new control board the way they come off the old one. Thanks!
This is a Whirlpool Micro/Convection Oven and the light has gone out. Can you tell me where bullb is, and how I change it. I've got no pictures or diagrams to go by. Can you help this old man??
Answer Hello Bob,
The part number that you would need is W10440740 and to remove you would have to take unit out from wall. It would be located on top of unit, there is a cover you would have to remove and then remove the spring clip holding it in place.
Recently, the halogen bulb (under the unit) that lights up the stove top burned out. The manual calls for a 40 watt max bulb part number WB08X10057. I purchased a replacement bulb and it is rated 50 Watts / 130 volts. I cut the power to the microwave/convection for the installation of the bulb and then reconnected the power. Upon installation of the bulb, the on off switch for that bulb will not work. The high, low option will not work either.
Should a 40 watt bulb be used in lieu of the 50 Watt?
Answer Stephen, Yes, you need to replace the existing part, with the reccomended part. The excess wattage of the bulb, will cause an increase in heat in the light assembly, and cause premayute failure. You also need to check the holder assembly/wire harness to make sure the connection is proper, and you may want to use a multimeter and check for 120 VAC at the light bulb holder( as long as the microwave is plugged in there's voltage to the bulb, the "N" part of the circuit is completed through the control board) The WB08X10057 and WB06X10554 are the parts you may want to consider, and checking for the voltage at the bulb holder, will get you going in the right direction.
