Hi.

To replace the light you need to take apart the external cover. This is not a difficult repair, but there are several safety issues involved when talking about microwave ovens.

Better having the repair done by an authorized technician. An energy leakage safety test will be performed after repair.

Replacement procedure on your Panasonic is similar to the procedure illustrated here for Jenn Air: How do I replace light bulb?

Regards.

    My Panasonic NN-4471 has a case cover that is held on by five screws. After removing that - the bulb was right on the top - behind the control panel. It's in a socket the simply lifts out of the plastic assembly. In my case, some crud had built up on the contact at the base of the socket (after 17 years) and the bulb didn't work. A pencil eraser cleaned it off. I replaced the bulb anyway - it is a standard (intermediate base) 25w appliance bulb - can get it anywhere for about $4.
    Whole job took about 15 minutes - if you have the bulb on hand.

In the first microwaves they had the sence to install a small sqaure plate were the light was (as they blow every 1-2 yrs but as the years went on it was presumed to be to expensive to do so. so now to replace the globe we have to take the whole top cassing off ounce done youl see the clobe there are two types unsrewable and fixed place. remember this formost microwave ovens hold up to 1000 volts in there capacator regardless of time so there very dangerous to work on but so long as you dont touch any other wires youl be fine try to unscrew the globe there may be sticky tape to stop it rattling loode - cut it if it undoes replace it if in like most cases i wont budge its a sealed globe and needs to be replaced by a lic teach this job should not cost more than $ 15 for parts and half hrs service charge

good luck

GE Profile spacemaker 1800xl microwave it starts but doesn't heat, what is your best advise


The power supply to the microwave unit has burned out. This unit normally is under warranty for seven years. The real problem is that unless you take the unit into a authorized repair place it will cost you almost as much as you paid for the microwave when you purchased the unit to have a repair company to come out to your home to fix your Microwave .This happened to me and I just purchased a new microwave and got rid of the old one. If you can find a authorized repair shop , stake it in before you purchase a new one. Sorry I could not help not even for myself. .

My microwave stopped working and I'd like to try and fix it myself. Any suggestions?


Because microwave leakage can be hazardous and high wattage is present, limit your microwave repairs to light bulb changes if the light bulb is easily accessible. For other repairs, call a qualified technician to make repairs on a microwave oven. If it doesn't work and the light doesn't go on, be sure it is receiving power.
