If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

If it's an over the range type, remove the vent grille across the top and see if bulbs can be accessed there. There may be a panel on the bottom covering the light(s), instead.

If not, chances are you'll have to remove it from the wall, then remove the outer cover. If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You should be able to download your owner's manual from Panasonic.net by choosing your region & country, then Support.

Once it's out of the wall, the outer cover (wrapper) will need to be removed, just as you'll need to do on a counter top model.

On a counter top model, be sure it's unplugged, but otherwise ignore the instructions above this paragraph.

You should be able to download your owner's manual from Panasonic.net by choosing your region & country, then Support.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, but a special driver (such as a T20H type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Replacement light bulb for Panasonic NN-9853 Microwave


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.

You can download your owner's manual here.

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, and a special driver (such as a T20H Torx type or GTXH20-100) may be needed.

Be sure to put all the screws back in the right holes, since some may be special grounding screws.

Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

Panasonic bulb nn a753


First, get the bulb part #F612E4W00AP or equal. Next, you should find a few screws around a plate in the unit through which the light shows through. Carefully remove them and the glass lens. When replacing the bulb, be sure it is in securely.

Lightbulb no longers turns on!


They do this to avoid liability from your exposure to the instantly lethal voltages present in and generated by your microwave oven. For important safety and disassembly tips, search on Yahoo.com (not Google) for all this at once (copy & paste): microwave disassembly.txt safety.txt The oven must first be disconnected from the power line. The outer cover is held in place by several screws on the back and sides, then you lift up and back from the rear to remove it. You need to avoid the sharp metal edges on thge cover and inside the oven. Note there are also catches built into the top & sides of the cover which must be re-engaged upon reassembly, or the cooling efficiency will be compromised. Once the cover's off, if there's any chance you might come into contact with any of the high voltage connections, the high voltage capacitor should be discharged for safety's sake. Once the bulb is located, it can be unscrewed and replaced.
