Hello, I also have a Panasonic Microwave ( model NN-S 564 or 574 ?) They are very similar.
I have just removed the outer cover 5 screws ( unplug of course ) and have located the bulb holder which is a white plastic component with two clips holding the globe, pull it out and remove the two spade clips connected to the globe. The globe will come away attached to a black plastic mount. Next........do the run around to find someone who sells it.
Perth has an authorized distributer/repairer in Myaree whose details I got from Panasonic. He may sell them. otherwise I will try a couple of specialist light globe suppliers I know....PROLAMPS in Belmont and one in BALCATTA whose name escapes me but I have been there before...Hope this helps others.
It's likely that it's only the fan and light coming on when the door is open. But even so, it's not normal, and it should be fixed.
It's not a reset issue.
It's likely a broken door switch mount caused by a door slam or by inferior material, or a defective door switch caused by opening the door while the oven is cooking instead of hitting the "STOP" key first.
You can do a Google search for my text file "doorsw.txt" which will give safety info and help in checking the door switches.
Also, the plastic pieces on which the door switches are mounted should be checked, as well as the door alignment.
It's usually the upper door switch or mount that causes this, but occasioanlly it's a problem on the control circuit board.
Post again if more help is needed.
Time to buy a new microwave as it sounds as if the control panel is defective. A new control panel for this micro will run about 95 to 120 bucks + labor depending on where you buy it. I happen to like slightly burnt popcorn as well!! Nothing wrong with thats, as they say great minds think alike.
