On many models, you press "Stop / Reset" three times.

A hard reset may help: Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If you don't have your owner's manual, you can probably download it (or one that's very close) here:

If that doesn't work, you can contact Panasonic UK at http://panasonic.co.uk/customer-Support/svc-dealer-locator.asp

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).

"Locke" meaning the door? or locked meaning the buttons don't work? If it is the buttons then you have the child lock on. Push and hold the "Start" button for 4 to 5 seconds, and it will unlock.

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.

You can order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

SOURCE: panasonic genius microwave light bulb

Hi all, I have just replaced the bulb in my Panasonic NNA873 Dimension 4. Please be careful,although it was an easy job, there is a capacitor inside which stores heavy loads of power and will release the electricity into you if you touch it! YOU CANNOT REPLACE THE BULB FROM INSIDE THE MICROWAVE....... DO NOT REMOVE THE CARDBOARD-STYLE COVERING WHICH IS ATTACHED WITH ONE SCREW INSIDE THE MICROWAVE ON THE RIGHT. To replace bulb will take 5 minutes. UNPLUG microwave. Remove the outer cover by unscrewing about 6 screws (ordinary phillips) don't lose them into the workings....... Bulb is located on the right side, nearer to the front. You cannot see the glass of the bulb, only the black plastic end piece, as the bulb sits upside down and vertically. Best if you check out what a T170 looks like on the internet, then you will know what you are looking for. For my Panasonic I needed a T170 (but be careful, they have different ends, some are straight, some right angled - mine was right angled - check before you buy and no, I don't think you can get them from any ordinary supermarket etc!!). Do not touch the bulb when replacing as the oil on your fingers will shorten its life. Old bulb can be removed by taking out one screw and then pulling off the connectors - there is a little tab to push down to ease them off. Then simply replace bulb! When putting cover back on make sure all the tabs on top and sides go inside not outside casing. Good luck. This is an easy job, just don't poke around anywhere else.

Panasonic 1100 watt microwave where is the light


Not sure as microwave manuals often will not discuss this due to consumer safety concerns, but here is some info from a good source on Microwave repair:


"You would think that something like replacing a light bulb would be trivial and self evident. Unfortunately, not always so with microwave ovens. Light bulbs may be typically located in any of 3 places:


  1. Oven chamber - it may be behind a mesh grill requiring a screw or snap to be removed. This is the easiest.
  2. Rear - the bulb may be in a recessed compartment accessible by removing a screw or two on the back of the oven.
  3. Inside - it may be behind a non-removable grille requiring the removal of the cover.

These are typically not your usual vanilla flavored appliance bulbs either.

Bad connections are also possible but not that likely."


Remember, while you can do some repairs on your microwave, what you don't know can kill you... even on an unplugged microwave, so make sure you understand the dangers and how to reduce them before you try anything inside a microwave. If you want to do more yourself, follow the above link and take note of the safety instructions.
