You'll have to unplug it and remove the outer cover, then the bulb is located in a holder in the cooling duct attached to the magnetron on the right side of the unit.

We have a similar service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

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

You can order it ahead of time from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

HOW DO i CHANGE THE BULB IN MY SHARP R-651ZM MICROWAVE OVEN


Changing the light bulb on your Sharp carousel microwave will allow you to have needed light inside the oven. Microwaves are not designed for consumers to change the light bulb due to manufacturer liability, but it can be done. Following the proper steps will ensure a successful installation. Step 1 Unplug the Sharp carousel microwave from the electrical outlet.
Step 2 Locate the screws around the outer cover of the Sharp carousel microwave and unscrew all the screws.
Step 3 Lift off the covering.
Step 4 Locate the bulb and unscrew. Screw in your new bulb.
Step 5 Replace the cover and screw back tightly. Once done, test your new bulb.

Normally switch power off and remove plug from wall socket, undo screws around side and back panel and remove outer cover, then the light socket will be visable so change light bulb and reassemble, CAUTION: high voltage may be present so best left to service person for safety

Replacing lightbulb in Sharp R953M combi microwave oven


most microwave ovens built in the last 20 years do not have an
access panel to the light bulb. you must remove the screws on the back of the microwave that hold the outer sleeve in place.
Then pull upward and backward on the sleeve to disengage it
from the front lip of the chassis. the light bulb should be close to the front of the microwave behind the control panel. Some lights
are not unscrewable from the socket, but the socket and bulb
come as an assembly.

I fixed it by reading how to fix another model. What you do is take the cover off, the bulb is on top. Make sure that you unplug it before starting.

Where is the light bulb in an old Sharp Carousel Microwave?


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!!!!!!!
