As per our call you need to remove the outer case to access the lamp socket, you can then use long nose pliers to remove the leg of the faulty bulb.

Make sure the appliance is unplugged before removing the case, and you replace the bulb and test the appliance with the case back in place before mounting it back in the kitchen unit.

Should you have any further questions please message me back here.
