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

Check behind the grill on the front top of unit. you can remove it by takign out a few screws from the top. There may be an access door there, if not unit would have to be pulled down and the case taken apart.

This is a pretty bad design, sometimes you can just remove the upper grill and access the light assy. If the panel is to tight to work in to change the light,you get to take the whole micowave down and remove the outer wrapper to change the light bulb. This is also not a standard bulb (part #WB25X10019). You may be able to get one from Lowes or Home Depot actually Sears would be a better bet, otherwise you will need to order one from an appliance parts outlet. Hope this helps and sorry I didn't design the thing I just fix them.

Unplug the dryer first, of course. With a putty knife, locate the clips under the front of the main top to release the spring clips. Lift the top and support it open. Disconnect any wire clips that are attached to the front panel, such as the door switch wires or wiring harness. There may be a zip tie attached to the wiring harness that you have to remove simply by cutting it off. On the inside, remove the front panel mounting screws down along the front inside edge of the panel. Pull the front panel up and out to remove. Disconnect the wires from the light bulb, carefully noting which wires go where, and press the release tab to remove the old light bulb housing. Install the new bulb and assembly by inserting it into the front panel and snapping it into place. Reattach the wires. Replace the front panel by aligning the slots at the bottom of the panel with the support clips. Lift on the front of the drum as you snap the front panel into place. Replace the panel screws and reattach any wiring that you disconnected to remove it. Rotate the top back into place, pressing down on the front to secure the spring clips. Plug it back in and voila! Good luck!
