Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.

To change out the light (which is a halogen bulb), you'll need to start by unplugging the microwave. Then remove the screws coming in from the top of the upper vent panel above the door and control panel. The vent panel will then pull off or slide to the left 1 inch and then pull forward and off. The light is accessed through this opening where the vent used to be above the microwave cavity in the front right corner. I can't tell if you need to remove yet another cover to access the bulb or not, but it appears you need to remove the cover 74 on the diagram in the link below. Once that cover is removed, you should see the light bulb plugged into part 73.

I opened the door and removed the top panel. I see the panel on the right side that the bulb is probably behind but I don't see how to remove it.

I would prefer a refund. I thought this service cost $5.00 but you want more to answer my question.
