SOURCE: How to change the bulb on a Panasonic Microwave NN A770S Not as easy as it sounds

You are probably right.

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 and 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.

i had to take the entire cover off the microwave (it is held in pace by screws at back as well as the bottom). Take the busted bulb to hardware store (bunnings) or panasonic spares and replace. Note I have a slightly different models (nn9853, nn9807).

SOURCE: Panasonic NN-P295 Cooktop Light not working

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

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.

SOURCE: Service manual for Panasonic NN-SD466M microwave

Panasonic's UK site is here, and you can use the support links to find spare parts and servicers.

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.

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 halogen types with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

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.

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.
