If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

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), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, and a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Prestige microwave

I believe that you are referring to the waveguide cover. You should be able to call a local appliance parts store to get a sheet of mica material that you can use the old part as a template to cut out a new cover for your unit.

On Prestige Combi Microwave the bub is on the control panel side. First remove the cover, Philips and torx required to remove screws on the back. *** MAKE SURE MAINS PLUG PULLED OUT ***

Looking at at the magnetron unit, find a black oval shape between it and the control panel with two wires plugged in, there are two bend strips holding the bulb holder in (this is directly behind the vent holes on the right hand side of the microwave oven), straighten them and extract holder with bulb, swap bulb with same rating and reverse the operation and re-assemble.
