Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job.

It's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

Dear Carluc

Right for this one, it is essential that you unplug the oven from the mains and leave it to dissipate any electrical current certainly for 6 hours. Once you have done this, you wil to get yourself a phillips head 6mm screwdiver and unfasten the screws on the back that hold the casing cover to the chassis. This will expose the enternal components, then all you simply need to do, is find the lightbulb, unclip this from the holder and then replace it with one of the same make and model. Fitting and re-assembly is as straightforward as it is taking the unit to bits.

go to http://www.google.com and type in GE Microwave lightbulb........this will get you the details about the bulb, and use the same google search to get your service sheet/ disassembly guide. Easy as 1,2,3.

Hope this works for you and please contact me here if you need further assistance in this or any other matter that is of a technical nature.

Yours sincerely

Oz

The first step is to unplug the oven before changing bulbs!

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.

You'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

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 can usually download your Panasonic owner's manual here.

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'll need to remove the outer cover (wrapper) to get to the bulb.

See these links before proceeding:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

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 locally 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.

SOURCE: 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.

How do you change a light bulb in a panasonic 1100 microwave oven?


Some microwaves have a small panel on the side which you will need to undo a screw . Open the small panel and unscrew the bulb.
Others have a small square panel inside which may look like card that you can slide out and remove the bulb.

How do i change the light bulb? Panasonic model NN-T945SF


Hi,

Do you mean you want to replace light bulb for your microwave? If yes follow the instructions below;
  1. PLEASE UNPLUG YOUR MICROWAVE!
  2. Picture of your microwave with a phone or camera so that you don't forget how to assemble it back.
  3. Remove the two screws that holds grill. They are located at the edge of the unit. Once the screws are out, rotate the grill forward from the top. It will pop right out.
  4. Once the screws are out, rotate the grill forward from the top. The grill should pop right out.
  5. Locate a small access cavity on the left.
  6. Remove the screw that is located near the front of the microwave door.
  7. Lift up the sheet metal floor to access the bulb. The bulb is located under the sheet metal "floor" on the left.
  8. Place a flash light on the microwave floor and shine the light in the light area. This will help you see better when you replace your bulb.
  9. Look for a small shiny reflector that hides the bulb. Use your two fingers to squeeze it a bit. Making sure not to bend it.
  10. The bulb connection should come right out.
  11. After you replaced the bulb, re secure the reflector and the sheet metal floor with the single screw. Test the bulb by plugging in your microwave.
  12. Once you see that the bulb works. Unplug your microwave again and re attach the front grill. You are now done.
I hope this helps to solve your problem.

Good luck.

I want to change the light in my microwave. Panasonic nn-p704sw. I took apart the covr and foung the light attached to a plastic scockrt. I tried to unscrew but the bulb was tight. should i apply more...


Typically the bulb will unscrew from the socket. If you can remove the bulb and socket with the wire from the microwave (wire hanging from the microwave) you might be able to get more pressure on the bulb to turn it. Keep in mind that the bulb may have been in the oven for several years and there may be a build of grease on the treads of the bulb so it could be really stuck. Put a cloth towel around the bulb and wear gloves so you don't cut your hand if the bulb were to shatter.

Light out in Panasonic NN-S573.


If the inside of the unit does not have an access plate visible, you will have to unplug the unit, remove the 5 or so screws in the back along the edge, then lift the edge and pull the housing off of the unit.
You won't likely have one of these bulbs at home, they vary and are of the compact varity such as those used in sewing machines or at least a smaller globe than normal lighting bulbs.
