Question about Microwave Ovens
Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to line voltages, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.
You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.
In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.
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 you were to log on to the
manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as
usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer
Instruction Manuals, list
for spare parts and service, and
I hope this helps.
