Question about Microwave Ovens
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
Once your over the range type is out of the wall, or if yours is a counter top model, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed.
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.
