Question about Panasonic NN-S254WF Microwave Oven

Unit does not turn off

A few weeks ago both my light bulbs burned out so I replaced them. When I screrwed them in, I could not turn them off. The light button on the panel would not respond. The next morning I woke up with the unit running and both lights burned out. When I opened the door the unit kept running and the interior light stayed on. The only way to turn it off was to unplug the unit. The control panel would not respond to any buttons pushed. HELP? I bought the unit last year and can't find the receipt to use for warranty.

Whirlpool builtin microwave model mh6130xeq1. I replaced the 2 bulbs that were underneath the unit that shine on the oven, but the replacement bulbs do not work. They are 40w appliance bulbs; the same...

You know how when you turn on a regular light bulb and it burns out with a bright flash? What happens is that when the filament burns out, it breaks and bounces back and hits the other electrical post and basically shorts out causing that bright flash. Sometimes, when 1 of the light bulbs in the microwave burned out, it shorted out, and caused the circuit-board trace to burn up. (This is not just conjecture; I've seen it.) If that's the case, then you would have to replace the main control circuit board. A rather expensive repair for no lights. BUT BEFORE YOU DO THAT, get an ohmmeter and check your new light light bulbs and make sure they are really good. Also, if you can, get a bright flashlight and check the light bulb sockets in the microwave (unplug it first). Check for possible corrosion or signs of arcing on the center electrode of the socket. If that's the problem, you might be able to use a small screwdriver to scrape off the corrosion of the socket (make absolutely sure you have your microwave oven unplugged before you do that!).

On our Panasonic the genius sensor 1200w microwave the bulb burned out so replaced. After replaced turned light switch on both bulbs turned on and right away one bulb burned out and now the switch will not...

Mine burned out within a month. Probably due to the poor design of the machine which forces you to slam the door to get it to shut.
My biggest concern is the under counter lightbulbs it has burned out in my kitchen over the last year. I wonder how much leaking this thing really gives off. Moving in a few weeks and will be throwing this cancer machine out.

Same Problem - Suddenly Died ~2yrs old, very light use.

Probably a fuse inside the unit. Can be caused by overheating or by door switches not working properly.

Spacemaker xl1800 - heats, but lights and carousel out

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or stuck in "night light" mode. Sometimes this will similarly affect the fan operation or inside light, too.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

One surface light bulb on GE Profile microwave keeps burning out

I have the same problem. The left one burns out within a couple of hours use, the other one lasts a couple of months and is then gone. This pattern has repeated over 8 years. I replace them every now and then and then just go without until I get the urge again to fix it. Maybe smaller lower wattage lamps are worth trying...
