The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid. This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller. This often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inopoerable or stuck on. If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: Emerson microwave light out
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

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.
Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.
On 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, 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.
You can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.
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 locally 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.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
