Keen to know which brand to buy? Or want to share a great purchase with the rest of us? This is the place to do it...

The light has stopped working and I can't get at it to replace it. The booklet tells me to call out an engineer to do this. What is that going to cost just to change a bulb? Has anyone else had to do this please?

Sorry don't know the answer. However, what about popping into a store which sells the panasonic micowaves and ask them to give you a demo on it's use. You are not obliged to tell them you own one already!
Would suggest John Lewis

What would that achieve? It's not as if they are going to demo you on changing the bulb!

Personally, I do not eat microwaved food. I'm convinced its not safe.

Actually, I think it would. In our neck of the woods they are very good at explaining and demonstrating if you go to a reputable supplier.
It's always worth asking.
As you say James , it may not achieve anything but I'm a great believer in asking.

I would get in touch with Panasonic via their website and find out how much they charge for this service of changing a light bulb. You never know maybe it's a free service.
I have a Panasonic m/w bought it new last year so hopefully I won't need a new bulb just yet. My last microwave which I had for about 30 years didn't have a working bulb for years and it is very annoying not being able to see the food going round and round so I know how you feel.

If you ask for a demo, you just say innocently 'How easy is it to change the bulb, can you show me??'

Just a suggestion...
Perhaps you could have a look on You Tube. There are lots of 'how to' video clips that show you how to fix and clean things. I have found it useful for things like fixing a dripping tap and replacing fly screens that were ripped to shreds after a hail storm.
Good Luck !

Thing is, I'd not even expect the poor sales assistant to know! I mean, yes, they should have some product knowledge but this is surely beyond that.

It's like expecting a sales guy in a car show room to show you how to change the gear box..........

Since when is changing a bulb in a microwave the equivalent of changing a gear box? What a weird world you live in.

Not at all. It is totally unrealistic to expect a sales assistant to know such things.

Just like you do not expect a car salesman to know, the poor bloke who you ask in John Lewis is not going to have a clue about the light bulb either. They are there to show you the functions of your possible purchase not to show you how to take it apart and put it together again.

I think we may approach the purchase of expensive products differently. Many manufacturers of repute send sales staff on training courses, so they should know the ins and out of the products.
If I view an expensive appliance I would ask questions about how to do running maintenance.
Just as when buying a car I would ask about the costs of replacing wearing parts on a particular model.

I'd just buy a new one ... ?

I mean, I know it sounds a bit wasteful but it depends whether you're sure it is the bulb alone - does it still go round & cook stuff etc? Mine went round but nothing else happened - new one was only £59. (Took me a week to program the thing however.)

Actually I don't think that microwaved food is more dangerous than anything else we eat these days - bzzz twitch twitch jibber ....

In these times of jobs being so scarce you may find someone with a mechanics degree is a Sales Assistant. Let's not denigrate all Sales Assistants to having a poor knowledge of their product.
I think the innocent question is a good idea.
