Models R420D and R520D also have this common feature found on Sharp microwaves. You can download that manual free at the link below (not my link) and the section on Compu Defrost should help you just fine. http://www.htsarebates.com/files/mic_man_420,520D.pdf#search=%22sharp%20compu%20defrost%20filetype%3Apdf%22 Or you can just do the Google search below and you'll end up with a list of several manuals you can try: "sharp compu defrost filetype:pdf" (without the quotes)

Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.
You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.
The service manual (available at our site) shows how and shows that the lamp is mounted in the air duct near the magnetron. See http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r510hk_hw_sm.pdf
Part # is RLMPTA086WRZZ and you should be able to get that generically locally but if not, you can get it form Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com
If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Microwavesvc, that's what I've had happen with my sharp also, I carved a hook out of a piece of plastic and then epoxied it in, and haven't had any more problems with that.
Another problem I've had with the sharp (that just reoccured, I'm trying to figure it out) is that the micro-switches that the door latch push have gone bad. Originally just one went bad and I replaced it, now the micro has the light and fan on, and won't recognize being closed...

Microwave_svc's site is awesome! I was able to get all the help I needed for a similar Sharp Carousel microwave. My bulb was simply loose in the socket base causing intermittent bulb lighting. Microwave_svc's helpful links got me to the service manual and, along with a nice set of "tamper-proof" screw compatible TORX bits I bought at HarborFreight, I was easily able to get cover off, remove bulb socket, tighten bulb, re-install bulb socket, button unit back up, and, voila, the light now works without intermittent blinking. FIXYA!!!!
Many thanks to guru microwave_svc!!!!!!!
