Re: replcing burned out bulb
Either there are screws for removing the bezel or the whole trim pulls downward. on two sides are two long wire spring clips. once out you should be able to swing the bezel out of the way or by pressing the spring wings together disengage it from inside the can.

Just slide the wire off of the glass lamp housing cover. It should just pop-off to the side. Then carefully remove the glass cover so as not to break it. Next, just remove the light bulb by unscrewing it counter-clockwise.
Screw in the new bulb (any small 40-watt appliance bulb will work,) hold the glass cove in place, then slide the wire back over the glass cover. The wire should be centered over the middle of the glass, towards you.
The glass cover over the bulb shouldscrew off, remove the bulb and replace it with a new one of the correct type. Clean and replace the glass cover. Be careful not to use force which could break the glass and cause an injury. Make sure that the stove main switch is off. (The lamp cover may have a screw type or have a bayonet fitting).
Having tried several ways to get the glass cover off, there is one other thing you can try.
Spray some WD40 around the glass cover,and keep trying to tighten and then unscrewng it, and tighten again.
If this does not work, then the last resort is to break the glass cover, which is what I have had to do in the past,. but make sure you can get a replacement cover first.
Please rate my solution.
use a reciprocating saw to cut around the outside edge of the frame to cut the screws that are holding it in. this way the whole unit can be removed without breaking the glass. if you dont have one and have no option but to break the glass try covering the glass with a sticky backed plastic like you use to cover old kitchen shelves. this will hold the glass as you break it stopping pieces flying all over.
I went out and bought a 4 inch strap wrench from LOWE's. I had never heard of one before. After figuring out from the diagram how to use it, I wrapped it around the glass bulb cover and did a counterclockwise twist and off it came. P.S. I'm a girl so I feel pretty good about that project
SAME PROBLEM FOR ME...I REMOVED THE BOTTOM COVER AND FOUND THAT ONE LIGHT WAS NOT FIXED AND WAS LOOSE AND WAS TOUCHING THE GLASS. THIS HEAT WAS WHAT BROKE THE GLASS COVER. CLOSED INSPECTION SHOWED THE LIGHT SOCKET WAS TOO LARGE FOR THE CLIPS AND WERE NOT SECURED WHEN PURCHASED. I GOT SMALL SCREW AND NUT, BENT CLIPS SO THE SOCKET HOLE MATCHED THE HOLE MADE BY THE CLIP AND SECURELY ATTACHED THE SOCKET. THIS WILL SECURE THE LIGHT AND KEEP IT FROM TOUCHING THE GLASS..........IF I CAN EVER FIND A GLASS REPLACEMENT....MAY JUST HAVE ONE CUT. NOW THE PROBLEM IS TO REPLACE THE LIGHT AND MICROWAVE FUSE WHICH WAS BLOWN WHEN THE GLASS BROKE.
