Simply unscrew about 8 or so screws on the bottom of your microwave and you'll be able to access the light socket. It's held in by one screw. Remove this screw which will allow you to move the socket from being perpendicular to the light slot to simply sitting in the light slot in a parallel fashion. The wires are long enough that there is plenty of length to relocate the socket. The socket won't be mounted into anything but will just sit on the glass access panel that lets the light shine on the stove. This will give you easy access to replace the bulb and also allow you to buy the longer bulbs that are easy to find in any store.
Alternate bulb: Mudder E17 4W Dimmable 3014SMD 80-LED Crystal Capsule Light Bulb AC 110V (1 Pack, Warm White)
Recommended for anyone with the appropriate microwave who wishes to see underneath it.
The bulb does not last long if you plan on keeping it on for several hours a day. Plan to buy a few and store them for the future.
Skip it and buy an LED bulb from anybody but Whirlpool.
But seriously, this is the second Whirlpool product I own to recently prove itself to be junk. Just before the problem with the light bulb our Whirlpool Duet dryer died. It was flashing the dreaded F01 error that all Whirlpool Duet owners know (or eventually will come to know). It means there's a problem with the main control board. Online you can find countless stories from Whirlpool customers tell how these boards fail in exactly the same spot time and time again. And yet...no recall by Whirlpool. Thing is, these boards run about $150 to $200 which is 25% to 40% of the cost of buying a whole new dryer!
Until we stop feeding the beast these gigantic corporations will continue to focus on short-term profits instead of long-term durability. In other words, they sell us trash because we're buying it. Stop the cycle.
However, even though this vendor is charging less than Whirlpool and there is no shipping fee, the cost of this tiny bulb is still very high. Rather than continuing down this path over time, I am planning to rig up another alternative. I am going to use a self-stick, motion-sensitive, battery-operated light like this LED light. It would be much less expensive than this Whirlpool replacement bulb over time, and it would also solve the problem of forgetting to turn off the microwave's light when leaving the kitchen (which definitely hastens the eventual burnout of the bulb).
