So the light bulb on this model is a halogen bulb and it's mounted above the microwave. You'll need to completely uninstall the microwave and remove the top sheet metal panel in order to access the bulb for replacement. The bulb will be located under the reflector dome behind the control panel area somewhat center from left to right. The part number for the bulb is wb25x10019 and below is a link to the part you'll need to order for your model. Be sure you flip the circuit breaker off to the microwave before replacing the bulb. That is why they make the bulb so difficult to access because people were not flipping the breaker off when replacing it and it would often times short out the control board when replaced.
