Customer Question
I can't figure out...

I can't figure out how to remove to replace tube lights in Maytag microwave model # MMV6178AAS.

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I sent the model number and it was built in 2005

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I can think of
