Bulb replacement procedure and estimated time? Correct bulb number? Is this a model I should check torsion springs on at the same time?
Answer Hello Rhugg,
If the correct model number is KBHC179JSS04, The Q tube replacement part number is 8186528. If the door isn't giving any issues I wouldn't bother it. What's the old saying? If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
How do I replace m/w lamp for this model? Thank You, Barry
Answer Barry, It's a pretty involved procedure, you may have to remove the oven from the wall. But, in most cases, once you've removed power to the oven, removed the control panel and the air vent, in most cases, you can then unclip the light receptacle holder and lift the bulb out of the recepatcle and change it. It's a very tight "squeeze" but do able. We could've sent you some additional information, but you forgot to attach an email address.
