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/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.

Whaqt are the dmensions of panasonic genius premier model number nn-s7768a


Here's your answer and then some, in case it helps

Brand: Panasonic
Name: The Genius Premier 1000W
Primary feature: reheating of popular food categories is done automatically (time and power level automatically determined, often time adjusted based on steam sensor). Defrosting also done by entering weight (so time is automatically determined).
Color: black matte top/lateral sides; black gloss front; white back; silver bottom
Style: Counter/table top (label says not for mounting)
Model: NN-S7768A
Manufacture Month/Year: September/1996

Dimensions Exterior: 14"T x 23-3/8"W x 16-1/2D (18 including protruding door handle and back cord plastic clip)
Dimensions Interior: 10-5/8"T x 16-1/4"W x 15-1/4"D
Cubic Feet interior: ~18.28 cu ft (based on three interior dimensions multiplied together and divided by 144 to get from cubic inches to cubic feet)

Note:
I found a manual from a similar model; you'll probably want to pring page 15 as a reference, since each food category button has 2-4 modes based on the type/temperature of the food, e.g. veggies are 1. for potatoes up to a certain quantity and weight each, 2. fresh veggetables of a certain weight, and 3. frozen vegetables of a certain weight. Specific instructions on adding water, covering, etc. are also included. Makes microwaving pretty easy!

Glass plate and int light failed - is this a fuse fail ?


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, 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.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
