Re: Replacing lightbulb in Sharp R953M combi microwave...
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.

to replace the bulb in microwave ovens you will have to take the outside case off the unit as the bulb placement is not accessible from inside the oven
when you get to the bulb take it to an appliance repair shop and they will have a bulb
Is this a countertop microwave or an over-the-rang (OTR) microwave? If it's a countertop model, you need to completely remove the outer case to get to the lightbulb. If it's and OTR microwave, there usually is an access cover located behind the grill vent. You can remove that grille vent by removing the 2 to 4 screws above the grill vent. Then either slide the grill vent 1/4" to the left to remove it, or else (depending on the model), just pull out the top of the grill vent, followed by the bottom. Then you should be able to see the lightbulb access cover. Usually there is 1 screw that you have to remove. But unplug the microwave before you to any further! Now remove the screw, lift up and remove the cover, and you should be able to get to the light bulb.
I have a belling combi microwave, the covection oven works well but the microwave oven has stopped heating the food up and also the defrost isn't working ? Any tips or does it need repairing and wat are the costs?
They do this to avoid liability from your exposure to the instantly lethal voltages present in and generated by your microwave oven.
For important safety and disassembly tips, search on Yahoo.com (not Google) for all this at once (copy & paste):
microwave disassembly.txt safety.txt
The oven must first be disconnected from the power line.
The outer cover is held in place by several screws on the back and sides, then you lift up and back from the rear to remove it.
You need to avoid the sharp metal edges on thge cover and inside the oven.
Note there are also catches built into the top & sides of the cover which must be re-engaged upon reassembly, or the cooling efficiency will be compromised.
Once the cover's off, if there's any chance you might come into contact with any of the high voltage connections, the high voltage capacitor should be discharged for safety's sake.
Once the bulb is located, it can be unscrewed and replaced.
