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:

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.

I have aclock on a frigidaire microwave that is loosing time


A defective clock would be the cause, the voltage is regulated by the oven circuit board, so line voltage would rally need to be way off to affect the operation of the clock. Ranges of line voltage here in USA are 110V-120V

I purchase a microwave which is 240v 50z but in my country we usually use 230v 60hz, can i use AVR to solve my problem?


Hi. An AVR (auto voltage regulator) will not change the freqs from 50 Hz to 60 Hz. An AVR only changes voltage. The frequency in is the same frequency out.

Having said that.... I don't think your going to damage your unit as long as you don't run it for long periods time. I live in the tropics and use 4 different AVRs myself. I have had both 50z and 60 hz electronics and appliances running fine on 60 Hz for the last 7 years. Your call! Hopefully this was useful information.

50 hertz microwave to send in Philippines which frequency is50-60


u.s. is all 60 hz. not sure in the phillipines,the only issue is it will cook slower due to the lower input frequency, it shows no electronic control board in the diagram, sometimes a different freq. can throw electronics off i.e. the clock would run slower and not keep accurate time on 50 hz. as it would on 60hz.

Voltage difference


Actually the voltage is the same, it's the frequency which is different. Running 60 cycle equippment on 50 cycle current is usually no problem. Most noticeble difference is that motor rpm will drop (by about 15%).

Panasonic S588BA MHz


As far as I know, all of them run at 2450MHz (aka 2.45GHz).

If you're also concerned with power output in watts, I didn't find much on this model, and you may have to visit panasonic.com for contact info.
