how to change the light bulb in a IDELINE MODEL ED8525S-SA microwave

Not the simplest thing to do and you should have the knowledge and tools to safely discharge the stored voltage in the machine before working on it.

Be aware, microwave ovens can store a charge in excess of 4000 volts, even when unplugged.
As long as you take care not to touch anything other than the bulb, you should have no problems.

Unplug the appliance.
To access the bulb you need to take the outer cover off.
(You will likely find Torx security screws holding the cover on, you'll need the correct tools to get them out).
Once off, you'll find the bulb at the top right, near the front.
It's installed bulb down into a plastic housing.
Take the wires (or plug) off of the lamp, then take the lamp out.
Fit the new one, put the wires back on and refit the cover.
It's very likely not an ordinary bulb either, it may well come with it's own holder and connection points for the wires.
Check it out, get back to me if you need more help.
Obviously, if you cannot do the work yourself, you'll need to get someone in to do it for you.
Hope this helps
