Question about Microwave Ovens
Every search I do for it comes up with a different shape than the one that came out of my unit. Can someone PLEASE give me the exact replacement bulb part number? I'd really appreciate it.
The procedure and part number (WB02X4253) are on page 43 of your owner's manual.

It's pretty simple as long as you have an offset phillips
Of course, be sure to disconnect power to microwave and be sure not to touch the new halogen bulb with fingers.
First, remove upper vent panel and remove inner filter (same directions for just replacing inner carbon filter):
Then, remove inner plastic grille (2 screws) and final screw on left side of metal "air duct" - here's where you'll need the offset screw driver (and a little patience!):
Then, you can gently lift the sheet metal panel, find the light housing, squeeze and remove/replace :)
That's it...just replace bulb and reverse for reassembly. Be sure to keep track of screw locations there are various sizes/lengths used.

Your post has two distinct model numbers shown, so it's hard to be precise, but I'll try my best.

I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. Other models are similar. It's at
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), too.
If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover.
Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
If yours is an Advantium type, the following instructable should help: http://www.instructables.com/id/SZFF4WSF44XYT8X/?comments=all

Unfortunately, there is no way to tell which part the microwave needs without opening it up for examination. There are a few parts that, if defective, would prevent the oven from heating.

SOURCE: Light bulb in oven went out
Remove the top grill by removing two screws in the top. Pull the top of the grill out towards you as the bottom has pegs on it. About 6 inches from the left is metal cover that you just squeeze with your finger tips to remove. This exposes the bulb.
