Good afternoon! My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your microwave today. Replacing the light bulb will be quite difficult on this model I'm sorry to say. The entire microwave on this unit needs to be pulled out about 12 inches so that you can replace the light bulb. Open the bottom oven door and remove all the screws going into the vent panel below the microwave which goes across the oven door latch. Remove this panel and you will see 2 screws holding the microwave feet to the oven frame. Remove these 2 screws. Now remove the screws in the vent below the control panel. Now you can reach under the microwave and pull the microwave straight out about 12 inches to remove it so you can replace the light bulb directly in the middle on top of the microwave cavity. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best). If you need anything else, just let me know. You can continue asking follow-up questions at no additional charge after rating my service if you still need assistance.
