@bobbbbbb Not exactly sure which light bulbs you need. From your brief description it sounds like you are talking about the cooktop lights:

Cook top light incandescent bulb WB36X10003

To replace the bulb(s), first disconnect the power at the main fuse, or circuit breaker panel or pull the plug.

Remove the screw at the front of the light cover and lower the cover.

Be sure the bulb(s) to be replaced are cool before removing. After breaking the adhesive seal, remove the bulb by gently turning.Replace with the same size and type bulb.

Raise the light shield and replace the screw. Connect electrical power to the oven.

Try this: LED Surface Light Replacement.

They are LED, so should last much longer - probably longer than your microwave.
