Many ovens are now built with "tamper-resistant" Torx screws. These have a center pin to keep a regular driver from fitting. You can buy drivers now at many stores or from online vendors. Sears has them, I think, and I know the Harbor Freight chain carries them if you have one near you. I just tried a search on eBay for "tamper torx" and there are a lot of vendors if you can't find them locally.

Can you replace the waveguide in a model NN-SN756B Panasonic microwave oven?


Generally, there are no user serviceable parts in a microwave oven due to the dangers of exposing yourself to microwave radiation. There are special screws that can only be removed by technicians who have the right tool.

However, I did find this.

Panasonic NN-C980B stopped working. Blown fuse.


Sometimes when the mag shorts it takes out the inverter. I would measure the mag leads to ground and they should be open or 20M or so. If you have both a mag and inverter bad it's probably time for a new oven.

Panasonic inverter model no NN-S540


You can download your owner's manual here.

If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (and the owner's manual doesn't address it) some disassembly may be required.

Always unplug a microwave before removing or installing any bulbs.

The screws you need to remove should be pretty obvious, and a special driver (such as a T20H Torx 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 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.
