SOURCE: Replacing the interior lamp inside the microwave on the top.

Yes, Bobby, it can be done. Before you begin, though, go to Home Depot and look in the tool department. There, ask for a "Husky Pro #66604". It's a 1/4" and 5/16" drive 90 degree ratchet that's about 4 inches long. While you're there, pick up a #2 1/4" drive phillips screwdriver bit. You'll use both of these to do the light. Both for about $12. UNPLUG YOUR MICROWAVE! Stand on a small ladder in front of the Microwave (MW), remove the 2 screws that hold the vent louver in place and remove the louver. You'll now see a black plastic grill (just above the door handle)remove the 2 screws with your new tools and remove the grill and the metal box that covers the relay. Now remove the 2 screws holding the horizontal metal panel that the box was sitting on. Now gently lift that panel up, (don't try to remove it) and you'll see the lamp. It's the one with 2 white wires going to it and a shiny metal cover over it. Place your index finger on the back of the cover of the lamp and gently pull toward you and lift at the same time. This will release the catch and allow you to pull it all the way out to get to the lamp. There ya go! Simple!

If you don't see a removable panel inside the cavity, yes, it will have to get nekkid. Obviously, pull the AC plug first; there are potential very dangerous uninsulated points inside. 

It shouldn't be too tough, there are normally only 5-8 screws along the edge of the back panel to be removed, then lifting the back edge of the housing should free it from the front lip and it should slide off. Sometimes, finding one of the compact bulbs is more work than the replacement of it.

SOURCE: lamp replacement in a sanyo microwave EM-D9553

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.

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.

SOURCE: Bulb Replacement in Microwave

You have to take off the case. Need a T20 Tamper Torx bit and a Phillips #2 Bit. There are 2 tamper-torx screws on the case to discourage inquisitive types / prevent untrained hands from entering. Once the screws are out (5 in total), slide the cover off the back. On the right-hand side, you will see the electrics. The bulb is behind the black oval shaped fitting that lies just behind the 2 big red wires that carry the high voltage to the microwave tube. Just pry over the bend-down metal tab, and lift off the black oval, bulb is attached to it. Replace, re-install, and test with case off and door open to ensure your replacement works. Re-install the slip-off case and screws. You're done.

Can I replace the lamp in a panosonic microwave oven model NN CT 857


Hi.

The lamp replacement requires complete removal of the oven external casing. The oven must be tested for radiation leakage after the repair. The replacement must be done by a trained technician. Disassembling procedure is illustrated on the service manual available here: Panasonic Service/repair manuals,schematics.

Regards.

How do I replace light bulb


Replacement of the lamp should be carried out by a qualified appliance repair service. The lamp is a special size!

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT!

Attempt this only if you are competent.

But here is a basic method if you are mechanically minded and have electrical safety knowledge.

The lamp is sat in a housing and its position is adjacent to the vent holes that it shines through.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity.
Remove the microwave cover. Purchasing a new replacement lamp will be useful as it will give you an idea of what it looks like. Locate the dead lamp remove the lamp and fit the new one. Replace the covers. Plug it back in and try the lamp by opening the door.
Hope this helps.
