If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Hello I have a delonghi combi microwave and every time I switch it on at the mains it switches on for about a second and then trips the fuse in main fuse box

There is a short in the primary electrical circuit.
A microwave technician will need to open the housing to check.
The actual location of the fault can vary widely, ranging from water / moisture causing a short, wires burnt or touching, fan motor cooked, control board fault, a loose live connector floating, lamp holder fault, etc.

I have a Delongi Microwave combi and need to locate the lamp, the model is AC930AMQ, so far I cannot see the lamp anywhere and need to replace it. If it is internal I have no prblem with that as I am an...

I removed the outer case by three posidrive screws and two security screws. The lamp is located in a downward position on the left hand side looking from the back. A normal 25watt 300c ses bulb is suitable so no need to buy original if you don't want to. Take care before removing cover by unplugging the unit and only work on the lamp area as there is high voltage present charged in the capacitors !

Where is the 10 amp fuse on my delonghi micro/combo/grill please

Hi, I take it that this is a combi microwave? Some of these have settings on the front to microwave/grill/etc... so make sure its on the right one first!!
If you have selected the correct one then the m/wave does not work it could be several things!
Microwaves run to earth and need diodes to do this if these break down it will not m/wave! It could also be a internal fuse? ( but very unlikley if everything else works) Then you have the Mag or transformer which could be down to! M/waves run on a high power side and a low power side. The low power will not hurt you to much but the high power side will. My advice to uou is not to touch as it could be fatal as these things carry a high charge even when they are unplugged!

Changing bulb in DeLonghi ED 8525S-SBD
This is merely an account of how I fixed mine - do this at your own risk. The oven is full of high-voltage items which include large capacitors which are not discharged when you unplug it from the mains. You can still get a life-threatening shock from the charge which is stored in these components. 
Therefore do not touch ANYTHING electrical except the bulb connectors.
1. Unplug the oven and place on a suitable surface 2. Remove the cover. This is held by five screws at the back of the of the machine. Three are along the top and are philips type and the other two are on the bottom left and bottom right corners and are star-grip. The cover must slide backwards first before coming off. 3. Find the bulb holder. It is located on the right of the oven as you look at it from the front. Turn the oven so that its right side faces you. The bulb holder is an oval black part with two electrical connections coming off it. It is about 6-7 cm long and 3 cm wide. It is mid way in the oven (from top to bottom) and a little towards the front. It is held to the oven frame with two bent metal prongs 4. Remove the electrical connectors by sliding them backwards. 5. Bend back the prongs and lift out the bulb holder. 6. The bulb in a 20W 240V oven lamp with a standard oven lamp screw-on fitting. 7. Replace the bulb. 8. Put the bulb holder back in place, bend the prongs back to secure it, re-connect the electricals. 9. Replace the cover and screws.
