This exterior light bulb for your microwave is 40W and has a small screw-in base. To access the exterior light bulb, you will need to remove the panel on the bottom of the microwave using a Phillips screwdriver. If your exterior light bulb has not been changed before, it is probably held in place with some silicone. You will need to cut away this silicone to remove the old bulb. If you cannot access the silicone with a utility knife, it can be removed using dental floss. Once the silicone is removed, simply unscrew the old bulb, and replace it with the new one. Be sure to disconnect the power to the microwave before you begin this repair.

This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Maytag, Amana, Estate, KitchenAid, Roper.

Question:

I'm trying to remove the stem from the underside of my over the stove microwave. The glass bulb broke off, leaving the metal stem in place.

Christine
Answer:

Hi Christine, Thank you for the question.First unplug the appliance. There are a few tricks you can try. One way is to use an empty soda bottle. Remove the cap from the bottle and melt the threaded top a bit and screw it into the socket where the broken off stem is. The melted threads should catch the stem and allow you to unscrewed from the socket. You can also use a pair of pliers, insert the pliers into the socket and open them up so the points are firm against the sides of the stem. Next turn the pliers so they unscrew the stem from the socket.Hope this helps!

Question:

The exterior light bub just fell out when i removed the cover. Only the glass part of the bulb came out. I assume the stem is still in the appliance. Have tried to get it out without removing entire microwave from the wall. Any suggestions

Light bult needed to be replaced

The nightmare was that this microwave is installed under the cabinet....in order to get to the light bulb I had to pull out my stove then squeeze into the space between the stove and counter....my old microwave light bult was much easier to change.....Shame on Whirlpool for making this so difficult.....must be a better way to cover the light bulb so that we do not need a screwdriver to remove the door to get to the light bulb

Light bulb was out

It was a bit awkward because the microwave is mounted over my stove. I had to twist around and install the bulb and then replace the cover. It was a bit uncomfortable. It took me about 10 minutes to complete.

Blown dual element lightbulb

The hard part was trying to find the light bulb locally. The locally sold light bulbs were either too long, not dual element or not powerful enough. So I ordered the light bulb straight from PartSelect. When it came time to install the new light bulb I carefully removed the screw holding the plate in position so as not to loose it in my gas stove. I needed the mirror to line up the light bulb and screw it in. Once it was in I verified operation and closed up the plate being careful not to drop the screw into my gas stove. Problem solved.
