Re: Smeg Microwave Components
Generally speaking, light bulbs can be had from common sources such as department stores, home improvement stores, and hardware stores.
Of course, I don't know much about what you'd call those places "down under and over a bit", but I'm sure the terms will translate well enough. *grin*

That exact model number is not showing up, so you may want to check the tag on or in the unit and look here for parts. Most of the models in this class of ovens were not really made to be serviced, so GE only makes the turntable parts available. It also sounds like your bulb is an assembly - the socket and bulb and one piece. So your local appliance parts store should have a generic replacement for it. You should take the bulb. Be careful when disconnecting the leads.
Many of the newer microwaves will have working control panels but not heat food due to a blown fuse. It requires opening the microwave and checking/ replacing this automotive style fuse (It has a ceramic center instead of a clear center). Make sure to unplug before servicing and be aware the capacitors may still be highly charged. Replace only with the same type and rating of fuse (it is stamped on the metal ends) They are available for a couple of dollars at any appliance parts store.
I think you're referring to the bulb which is not working. You have to remove the cover from the microwave to gain access to the bulb. Replacements can usually be found at appliance repair shops or stores and electrical or lighting supply stores.
These are 20W 120V bulbs with what's called the intermediate base.
The new Panasonic part number is ANE6030540AP and you can get them at Tritronics at http://www.wehaveparts.com or Vance Baldwin at http://www.vancebaldwin.com
You should also be able to get them at local appliance parts stores, Lowe's (or similar) or even a large grocery store.
You can also use Sharp part # RLMPT0003YBE0 from either of the above sites.
