Replace the bulb in Panasonic microvave Model nn s 768ba
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.
