If you mean the glass dome of the bulb has broken leaving only the metal bulb base, you will need a medium size long nose plier to grip the edge of the bulb base, you can then gently rotate counter clockwise to remove.
ENSURE THE APPLIANCE IS ISOLATED FROM THE MAINS SUPPLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS !!! PULL THE PLUG !!!
On my older Jenair, it is on the upper surface of the oven. It has a glass cover that would need to be removed to access the bulb.
Could be the switch or connections at the switch that is preventing the bulb from operating. Depending on age of oven and frequency of use of the light, oven bulbs last a long time. Mine is still good after 26 years!
The cooktop light bulb(s) is(are) located on the underside of the microwave oven, and is(are) replaceable. Remove bulb cover screw, and open the bulb cover. Replace bulb, close bulb cover, and secure with screw. Cavity light: The cavity light bulb is located behind the vent grille at the top front of the microwave oven, under the bulb cover, and is replaceable. Remove 2 screws on the vent grille, tilt the grille forward, and lift it out. Open bulb cover and replace bulb. Close bulb cover, replace vent grille, and secure with screws.

although the ratings are the same , the glass used is actually pyrex glass as ordinary glass will not handle the oven temperatures

1. Ensure the oven is disconnected from the electrical supply.
2. Turn the glass cover anticlockwise.
3. Remove the faulty bulb and replace with the new one.
4. Refit the glass cover.
5. Reconnect to the electrical supply.
make sure the light is off, better yet turn off the breaker
take a potato a little larger than the socket, cut it to size, whatever.. jam it into the broken bulb (carefully), this will allow you to grip the broken bulb safely. turn counter clockwise and whats left of the bulb should unscrew out.. works VERY well
