Good Afternoon

Welcome to JustAnswer and thank you for your question. My name is***** am an expert from Germany and have been working as an equipment technician for 19 years. I work with a language translation program and I would be very grateful for your understanding.
I'm sorry I can't make a call, but another expert can do it for you if you want. I will try to help you as best I can via chat.
I am sorry that you faced this problem!

I'm really sorry, but replacing a microwave lightbulb is very complicated. To do this, you would have to completely remove the covers from the entire device. It is not advisable to carry out repairs on your own with microwaves. There is a risk of imprisonment if you do something wrong that emits wrong microwave radiation. But if you want to do it anyway, you have to remove the entire cover.

Please feel free to continue this topic if you have any further questions. I would be very happy to help you!
With best regards,
Erdal

Can I have any video or manual telling how to change the bulb?

For KENWOOD K25MMS14 microwave

There is no manual for the assembly of the bulb. It is copyrighted by the manufacturer. It is only approved for technicians because it deals with risky components or microwave radiation. That is why there is no video manual. You have to remove the cover completely by yourself to access the bulb. I am really very sorry.

Is there anything else that I need to consider to remove the back cover?

You must completely remove the screws where the cover is held. Please check around the unit.

Is there any repair manual for this model?

As I said, it is where the jack is legally protected and no instructions are made for private persons. I can check if I can find an exploded view for you. You will have to be patient.

Ok. Please

Okay no problem. I'll search for you.

In many models, the bulb can be rotated. On yours it is plugged in. It is not a problem at all. The main thing is that you are satisfied.
