Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to 110V connectors, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Many models use one halogen lamp to illuminate the cooktop and another to illuminate the cavity. You must not touch them with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

How do you change a light bulb in a panasonic 1100 microwave oven?


Some microwaves have a small panel on the side which you will need to undo a screw . Open the small panel and unscrew the bulb.
Others have a small square panel inside which may look like card that you can slide out and remove the bulb.

I am trying to purchase a new light for a Panasonic micr Oven B756 ENGLAND OR SPAIN PLEASE HELP


It is a standard bulb, and should be available at any electrical outlet. Remove the old one as a sample just in case. The cover has to come off the microwave to access the bulb. There are several screws around the back and sides. Remove these and the cover should lift off, revealing the bulb. For your own safety, make sure that the microwave has been unplugged from the outlet for several hours before attempting this repair.

I want to change the light in my microwave. Panasonic nn-p704sw. I took apart the covr and foung the light attached to a plastic scockrt. I tried to unscrew but the bulb was tight. should i apply more...


Typically the bulb will unscrew from the socket. If you can remove the bulb and socket with the wire from the microwave (wire hanging from the microwave) you might be able to get more pressure on the bulb to turn it. Keep in mind that the bulb may have been in the oven for several years and there may be a build of grease on the treads of the bulb so it could be really stuck. Put a cloth towel around the bulb and wear gloves so you don't cut your hand if the bulb were to shatter.

Replacement light bulb for Panasonic NN-9853 Microwave


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.

First, get the bulb part #F612E4W00AP or equal. Next, you should find a few screws around a plate in the unit through which the light shows through. Carefully remove them and the glass lens. When replacing the bulb, be sure it is in securely.
