This broil element, located at the roof of the oven, has push on terminals. The element supplies heat to the oven. If there is little to no heat when broiling and baking, or the element does not heat, replacing the broil element can be a solution. This part is around 12 inches wide and 19 inches long. To replace it, pull the oven door from hinges after removing screws. Next, remove the screws holding the elements in place and pull off wires attached to the back of the element. To finish off, add new element and screw it back in place. Remember to unplug the oven from the power source before beginning this installation.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
First, I removed the grill from the top of the microwave by removing 3 screws and then by sliding it out. It was a bit tricky, but you have to rotate it under so the grill comes out from behind the display.Next, I removed the bottom grill by removing 4 screws. This one removed easily. Then, I removed 2 more screws that were under the bottom grill and was able to start sliding out the microwave unit. I was only able to pull the microwave half way out because some wires were stopping me from pulling it out more. I removed the big square piece of insulation and had enough room to get to the light assembly.I removed the retaining clips by pushing the right side of the clips to the little opening in the middle on the right hand side. Then I was able to remove the light bulb and replace with the new one.

Removed a screw and clip to remove the lens and replaced bulb. Then replaced clip and screw. Done.
There are two lights in this model oven. The glass will open by pulling outward on the near end. Since these are halogen bulbs I used a clean cloth to hold the bulb while replacing. Bulbs are expensive especially when purchased from Kitchen Aid dealer. I got two bulbs from PartsSelect delivered in two days for considerably less.
Used flat tip screw driver to pry front clip holding glass cover out of position. Pulled out dead bulb and pushed in new one. Slid clip back on glass cover and slid back into place. Simple. .
Turned out the oven light bulb were not the problem and am awaiting callback about what needs to be done to get the lights working again.
