Unfortunately, there is a good chance that when the bulb shorted out, it damaged the control board. The only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance. The relays for the fan and the lights are part of the board. The power should always be disconnected when these bulbs are replaced or the board will be damaged. We would have an appliance repair person take a look to see what the deal is with the microwave.

We see (and repair) this
a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which
we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a
At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.
The lights fan can be inoperable or stuck on or no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation, too.

It could be that the fan button is sticking or a contact has welded itself closed therefore its getting power all the time.

Yes it is a fuse issue. Inside the microwave chassis if you follow the power cord to the fuse block there will either be a 15 A or 20A fuse.
The fuse is Item 47 here:
BEFORE you replace the fuse, check the light bulb socket contacts. Most likely when you changed the bulb the side contact was somehow forced onto to bottom contact. Correct that problem first, other wise the fuse will probably blow again.
You can obtain the fuse at most any Appliance Parts source or Hardware outlet.
I have to ask... Does the microwave work but the fan motor does not? If that is the case you could have damaged the relay on the control board.
Your feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks for using FixYa,
