Question about Russell Hobbs Microwave Ovens
There are multiple possible causes for the problem. Here's a partial list: magnetron, high voltage capacitor, high voltage rectifier, power relay, inverter board (if an inverter oven), thermistor on magnetron (if so equipped), and on some units, a door switch.

Just open the top cover and find the location of the bulb , it may be in the right side near the control panel. Remove the bulb and get a similar bulb with the same rating from any electrical shop and fix it

If everything else is normal, the trouble may be a failed magnetron tube (the microwave source), problems on the control circuit board, or parts in the tube power circuit that are bad. It's also possible a door switch can be at fault, but this usually keeps something else (fan, turntable or light, most often) from running as well.
Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. There are potentially deadly voltages present, and a chance of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done correctly. Take the oven to a shop for an estimate, or just consider replacing it if it isn't a built-in, an over the range unit or a high-end countertop model.

See page 8 of the manual for detailed instructions on HOW TO SET THE CLOCK on your microwave. Basically it says to press the CLOCK button, then press the CANCEL button, then enter the current time using the number buttons, then press the CLOCK button again to set it.
I truly hope that was helpful to you.
Good luck and take care.
