Frigidaire Microwave Internal Light Bulb - HELP NEEDED PLEASE!

You are lucky!

MICROWAVE OVEN LIGHT Remove the louver per instructions 1-3 above and charcoal filter, if used.
1. To replace light bulb, first disconnect power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging.

2. Open light cover located behind filter mounting by carefully pulling up on the front edge.

3. Remove old light bulb and replace only with equivalent watt bulb available from parts distributor. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. DO NOT USE BULB LARGER THAN 20 WATTS.

4. Replace the microwave oven light cover by carefully pushing into place. Replace the charcoal filter, if used. Push the louver back into place (engaging both the bottom and top tabs) and replace the louver mounting screw.

When in doubt, refer to the manual :>D

My Siemens HF87950GB inner glass panel broke during cooking, do I need to replace the whole microwave oven or just the glass or the door? where I should I go to get a replacement? Thank you!

This is a problem that at least a few others have experienced with your microwave and may be the subject of a recall although I could find nothing on their website.
I would definitely go to Siemens first as this definitely sounds like a manufacturers defect. Even if they have not publicly stated this in a recall, they likely know it is happening and may fix it (even out of warranty) if you push. ConsumerReports.org may be interested... I would talk to them if you don't get any satisfaction from Siemens.
Otherwise, the glass should be standard tempered glass that a local glass shop can get if you bring the door to them, or just a sample of the broken glass (for thickness) along with the internal dimensions of the glass.
Make sure that the metal mesh/screen remains in place and is not damaged, as this is what prevents the microwaves from escaping the cooking chamber.

How do you replace the internal bulb in the Siemens HF87950?

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

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.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

See these links before proceeding:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H 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 locally 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.
