If you are comfortable with taking the cover off, Unplug the microwave, usually there are 2 philips screws on the top back, 2 on the right back and 2 on the left back edge cover. Sometimes, their might be a screw on the bottom but you will notice this right away if there are or not if the cover doesnt come off.
Then located the light bulb. You should be able to see the opening from inside the microwave where the light bulb is located.
Once you locate the bulb, then there are usually 2 types, type 1 screws in and the other type is a bayonet type, which you push down, and then twist. You should be able to figure this out.
Sometimes there is a plastic cover that is placed around the bulb to kinda help focus the light towards the inside of the microwave.
Once the bulb is out, then take it to your local hardware store and see if they can match it up. You might want to call first to see if they carry them before driving all over the place.
Hope this helps.

Difficult to say on yours. You may try the following. On the back or side, if there is a little cover that's screwed into the panel. Otherwise browse around on the inside. Be sure to unplug the micro before checking. Once found be sure to replace with a microwave lamp and not a fridge lamp. There is a difference. Good Luck,JUS004

Check the owner's manual to see if yours is a model which allows access to the lights without pulling it down from the wall.
Accessing the lights on some models will require you to remove the oven from the wall.
If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.
You can download owner's manuals and installation instructions for several brands (including Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here.
Most bulbs can be matched up at hardware stores, home improvement centers, and places like Wal-Mart or even large grocery stores.
Many use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.
