Question about Panasonic Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a panasonic NN-A883 which says I need to get a service technician trained by the manufacturer to change the oven light bulb. This seems a bit excessive and expensive just for a bulb. Can you tell me if i can do it myself and how. Many thanks

Hello,

Follow the instructions below;

  1. PLEASE UNPLUG YOUR MICROWAVE!
  2. Picture of your microwave with a phone or camera so that you don't forget how to assemble it back.
  3. Remove the two screws that holds grill. They are located at the edge of the unit. Once the screws are out, rotate the grill forward from the top. It will pop right out.
  4. Once the screws are out, rotate the grill forward from the top. The grill should pop right out.
  5. Locate a small access cavity on the left.
  6. Remove the screw that is located near the front of the microwave door.
  7. Lift up the sheet metal floor to access the bulb. The bulb is located under the sheet metal "floor" on the left.
  8. Place a flash light on the microwave floor and shine the light in the light area. This will help you see better when you replace your bulb.
  9. Look for a small shiny reflector that hides the bulb. Use your two fingers to squeeze it a bit. Making sure not to bend it.
  10. The bulb connection should come right out.
  11. After you replaced the bulb, re secure the reflector and the sheet metal floor with the single screw. Test the bulb by plugging in your microwave.
  12. Once you see that the bulb works. Unplug your microwave again and re attach the front grill. You are now done.
I hope this helps to solve your problem.

Good luck.

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.

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.

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.

Light out in Panasonic NN-S573.


If the inside of the unit does not have an access plate visible, you will have to unplug the unit, remove the 5 or so screws in the back along the edge, then lift the edge and pull the housing off of the unit.
You won't likely have one of these bulbs at home, they vary and are of the compact varity such as those used in sewing machines or at least a smaller globe than normal lighting bulbs.

Have a Panasonic Micro nn-T790 SA, need to replace light???


If you don't see an access panel inside the oven, you must remove the outer cover to find & replace the bulb. Be sure to unplug the oven first!

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

If you don't have your owner's manual, you can download it here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/NNT990SA.PDF

Panasonic NN-H664 1200 Watts Microwave


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.

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.
