This is the second time this has occurred. The first was still in original warrenty. It took two Sears servicemen to dis mantel and obtain access to the bulb. One had to hold it up in the cabinet while the other took off the tope to get to the bulb. I purchased an additional extended warranty for three more years but when I called this time they said that light bulbs were not covered. I had to furnish the bulb and they would install it for free. I am waiting for them to come and do it again. Your price even with shipping cost was cheaper than ordering the part from Sears.
The instructions from another customer was helpful. I concur with another comment I read while researching this proceedure. What Idio-- would design a microwave that required pulling the unit from the wall and removing the top panel just to access. It is good idea to unplug the transformer and capacitor wires before proceeding. I also googled a schematic to see the parts layout. Remember not to touch the bulb with your fingers. Use a cloth or paper towel.
This is the third time that the bulb went out.It took two Sears service technitions to remove the entire appliance out of the cabinet. The entire top has to be removed and the insolation has to be pulled back to get to the electrical wire. I am waiting for an appointment to get Sears to do it again. The door springs have broken and you have to make sure the door is closed before walking away. It has a heavy glass and the weight is pretty heavy. Robert.
