How to change bulb


First you get a person to stand on a chair and hold onto the bulb, then you get another person to turn the chair with the person standing on it, after about 7 turns the bulb should come out. Be sure to turn clockwise when looking down at the floor. Cheers.

Panasonic steam convection microwave ceramic floor cracked and a hole melted into the ceramic field.


This was probably a manufacture defect right from the begining which would explain what happened. My guess there was a very small crack and quickly developed into serious problem.

FRIDGE button is set on 3, red light flashes, air system works but it is not cool for at least 1 hour, Freezer set on 4 S and works.


Start out with the easy stuff first...make sure the lights go out when you close the door(s), make sure the doors are closing properly and the gaskets are closing fully and not torn. Check to make sure the evaporator fan in the freezer is working, this fan blows the cold air around. If the fan is not working, possible bad fan motor - check for power to the fan motor and also check the fan switches around the door openings, ( if your fridge has these switches, not all do ). A common problem cropping up in the last several years has been the air damper not opening up and allowing the cold air from the freezer to be blown into the fresh food section ( mostly on SxS refrigerators ). For many years the air damper was manually operated and now we have motorized controlled or temperature controlled or thermistor and electronic boards controlling air dampers, and if this device sticks closed the FF section will normally warm up. An example picture of "one" style and an air damper ( called a diffuser by Whirlpool ). Next would be to check the condenser tubing, a good place to start is to make sure the condenser coils are not built up with dust!! Make sure the condenser fan motor is also working properly. Check for any "clicking on and off" noises from the compressor, is the compressor running.
The most common fridge "not cooling" problem is a frost free failure. Remove the access panel in the freezer section to expose the evaporator coils. If the coils in the freezer section get plugged up with frost, this frost will block the evaporator fan motor from blowing the cold air around. The fan blade can also hit this frost and either become noisy or stop altogether. Locating the defrost timer can be tricky....they are often hidden behind the back bottom corners of the fridge at the bottom, in the last few years the timers have been located in the ceiling of the fresh food section, and some behind the cold control cover. Once you locate the defrost timer, slowly turn the screw like wheel in the middle of the defrost timer with a straight screwdriver until the fridge shuts off. You are now in defrost. If the defrost heater(s) comes on now, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater(s) does not come on, you can ohm test the defrost heater for continuity or volt test for 120 volts to the heater(s). If you have no power to the defrost heater(s) you can also bypass the defrost thermostat to see if the defrost heater will come on, join the 2 wires together to bypass the defrost thermostat. If the heater now comes on, replace the defrost timer and defrost thermostat. If the heater itself is bad, defrost the fridge with a hair dryer, replace the defrost heater* and defrost thermostat. If the defrost timer seems "hot" to the touch or is noisy ( like a ticking or screeching noise )...replace it. Then make sure all the vents are clear and not being blocked by food cartons. One new safety device added to refrigerators in the last few years has been a in-line fuse added to both sides of the defrost heater. If one of these fuses let's go, you must replace the whole defrost heater, as it comes as an assembly. If the defrost heater does not work, you should check for one of these fuses being open. Check it with a volt meter or ohm meter.
New link from Appliance Repair Aid on how the wiring circuit works for a frost free fridge, the link is here.
On a frost free refrigerator, the cooling coils should be in the freezer section. On a SxS style refrigerator the coils will be behind a cover on the back wall. On a freezer on top style the coils could be behind the back wall or under the freezer floor. Removing the cover and exposing the evaporator coils could be a valuable tool. Seeing what the cooling coils looks like may help split your not cooling problem. Totally covered coils with white snow is a frost free problem. and the rest are bare is an indication of a system problem

Refigarator and freezer no longer cold enough. freezer is not freezing and refigarator is not cold enough, food is going bad. Unit is not yet 5 years old.


pull out the plug for the fridge and let it stand for 7 days then plug in after seven days.the problem is that the fan that circulates the air is cloged up with ice so you have to give time for the ice to melt off.

My refrigerator has a leak behind the drawers on the inside . I have since had to put a towel at the bottom of the drawers or it will start leaking down the front and onto the floor every couple of days....


Moisture condenses out of the cold air inside the fridge. Many refrigerators have a drain tube in the bottom to allow the condensate to run into a drip tray under the refrigerator (behind the trim panel on the bottom) where it evaporates. Over time this tube can get clogged by food particles and the water backs up, eventually running over the bottom edge onto the floor. You can use a straightened out coat hanger or other stiff wire to clear it out. This should get the water back into the tray where it belongs.

Our Spacemaster Microwave can make occasional loud grinding or vibratory noises--deep and low sounds. Solution?


If it has a turntable, the wheels are worn or dirty and are chattering. When I have this problem, I take out the turntable, clean up the floor of the oven, the bottom of the plate, and the wheels on the turntable ring. Then I push a small amount of paste wax (made by S. C. Johnson) onto the axles inside the wheels to lubricate them. (I've kept my worn-out turntable ring going for over 10 years by doing this.) If the turntable has a central post through the floor of the oven, the bearing may need cleaning and lubrication.

Other possible causes would be the bearings in the magnetron cooling fan or the microwave stirring fan in non-turntable models. Excessive dirt on fan blades can cause imbalanced running, which will also generate vibrations.
