You say just remove the micro to access the bulb but do not say how to remove the trim pieces. Help?
Answer Hi. Remove the microwave. Remove the cabinet cover back screws and you will need a T-20 security type screwdriver tip on one back screw to get the rest off (use the same tool for the rest). Pick one up @ the local hardware store. Then the bulb part # 4173175 is accessed from the top inside the cabinet. Thank You.
To replace light bulb. You say remove outercover of microwave, remove lens cover. My question is how to do these tasks. My Micowave is attached to lower oven.
Answer Hi Joan. The surrounding trim needs to be removed. Look at the bottom below the door and remove this cross piece trim first. Open the door and remove. Remove power. Remove the door. This will give better access to the bottom trim screws. This removed will give access to the side trim screws. Side screws removed will give access to sliding the entire microwave out and then the microwave top cover. The lamp base socket is in the top. You will twist and lift the socket to access the lamp. Do not use your fingers on the new bulb because of the residue of your finger tips will react with the Quartz type bulb and once lite, it will react and negatively affect the life span of the bulb. Bulb part # W10440740.Thank You.
