Took cover off unit to expose bulb. However, was not able to remove bulb by pulling, or unscrewing. Guess the entire bulb "unit" must be replaced.

Changing the lamp in microwave of GE model pt970srss


If it is at all like a plain microwave oven, you will have to remove the screw for the cover to access the insides and likely will find that the light is not a simple screw-in bulb but a sealed package with a spare of spade terminals on top. It may be held in by one or more screws.
It is possible that this could be like a new conventional oven where you have to remove a light cover inside the cavity to access the bulb and change it

Changing interior light bulb on GE jes1289sk


I have had this trouble before but with a different model. There may be a plastic screen inside the microwave that will just pop off exposing the bulb. Now all you will need to do is to find out what type of bulb you will need to change the other bulb. I hope this made things easier on you.

GE PEB1590 microwave oven. Interior light burned


Remove the screws from around the rear of the oven and slide the cabnet off to the rear. You should be able to access the bulb from here.
WARNING: any time you work on a microwave you have to be careful of the capacitor. Unpluge the microwave and discharge the capacitor with a large screwdriver with a plastic handle.
Be careful.

One surface light bulb on GE Profile microwave keeps burning out


I have the same problem. The left one burns out within a couple of hours use, the other one lasts a couple of months and is then gone. This pattern has repeated over 8 years. I replace them every now and then and then just go without until I get the urge again to fix it. Maybe smaller lower wattage lamps are worth trying...
