Good morning! So first, below is a link to the light you'd need to order for this model.

Unfortunately the microwave will need to be taken apart to replace the bulb. You'll need a size T-20 safety torx bit screwdriver to remove the screws coming in from the back of the microwave around the right left and top edges. Start by unplugging the microwave. Then remove all the screws going into the outer shell and then the outer shell will pull straight back, up, and off. Now you have access to the bulb on the right side of the microwave cavity so you can replace it. The reason Magic Chef did this was because it forces you to unplug the microwave. Before they allowed you to change it by just opening the door and people wouldn't unplug the microwave which would cause the display board to short out when you replaced the bulb.
