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).

While I don't have that model's diagram,
you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo)
and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.
Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.
Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.
If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.
The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.
You can order Panasonic parts here.

We see (and repair) this
a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which

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.

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.

Hello Jim Rogosheske - To replace light bulbs, first I suggest disconnecting power to the microwave oven at the circuit breaker panel or by unplugging. To release cover, remove the screw on the light cover. Replace light bulbs with equivalent watt bulb available from your manufacturer or a parts distributor that they recommend. Bulbs are also available at most hardware stores or lighting centers. However, it is not recommended to use a bulb larger than 30 watts. Close light cover and secure with screw that was previously removed to release cover. Be aware that light cover may become very hot. Do not touch glass when light is on.
