We can probably give you more specific info if you give us a brand and model number. But here's the generic answer:
Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.
You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.
In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.
Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
Again, reply back with brand and model and maybe we can get more specific.
We appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Unplug the microwave from its electrical outlet. Never service an electrical appliance while it's plugged in.

Good Evening Gary, thank you for your post!
From the information you have provided you need to replace the lightbulb inside of your Frigidaire microwave. I have researched your microwave and you are unable to disassemble your microwave in order to replace the lightbulb. In order to provide you with a proper resolution I would suggest seeking assistance from a professional technician for repairs. This will help you avoid unnecessary part purchases or personal injury. -Matt
