there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the
rear or side) and the owner's
manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.
You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.
Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.
See these links before proceeding:
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.

Yes definitely that should be working fine again since it only stop working when the bulb blew,so go ahead and replace the bulb so you can use it again...
Hope that helps.......

SOURCE: Bulb Replacement in Microwave
You have to take off the case. Need a T20 Tamper Torx bit and a Phillips #2 Bit. There are 2 tamper-torx screws on the case to discourage inquisitive types / prevent untrained hands from entering. Once the screws are out (5 in total), slide the cover off the back. On the right-hand side, you will see the electrics. The bulb is behind the black oval shaped fitting that lies just behind the 2 big red wires that carry the high voltage to the microwave tube. Just pry over the bend-down metal tab, and lift off the black oval, bulb is attached to it. Replace, re-install, and test with case off and door open to ensure your replacement works. Re-install the slip-off case and screws. You're done.
