    I cannot find the proper screw driver as the inner part of the star has a *** preventing a normal screw driver from being used

    You can use a thin straight screwdriver as well. The screws are not very long at all.

There is a way but.... you will have to remove outer cover generally held on with screws at rear and under microwave be sure the oven is unplugged and when you take cover off there is a capacitor in there thats holds a charge stored even when oven is unplugged so dont touch nothing except the light bulb would prefer if you dont have much electrical experience to take to repair shop or have someone do it who has a little electrical knowledge hope this helps

What Charles said is correct. When you do access the lamp, near the front right of the unit, you will have to remove one screw to loosen the base that the light is on. There are two black slots that the assembly sit in along with the screw. The light is connected with two electrical plugs that attach to the two metal posts on the light base. Gently work these plugs off, and then pull the light up off the two small plastic posts that it sits on. The light will NOT unscrew and you need to find the whole assembly online. I have not been able to find one at a local warehouse type store. Make sure you put in the model number when searching for it.

Replacement of microwave lightbulb

Can you supply a make and model number? Most microwaves have fairly easy access to the light bulb from the back. Some even have a panel with a screw or few to access it, while others need to be taken apart more dutifully. If the microwave still functions as normal with the only issue being the light, then the chances are the bulb has blown, and yes, it shouldn't be a terrible issue to replace it.

The fan and light com on when the door is open and the carousel turns. When you close the door everything stops.

Check the door interlock switches, you may have a faulty switch or a blown fuse inside the microwave.
