MY PANASONIC MICROWAVE SHUTS OFF AUTOMATICALLY AFTER 3 OR 4 SEC
Sure sounds like it is losing power. First check the fuse and fuse holder. These companies are using really cheap fuse holders and they do not grab the fuse tightly, thye get hot and start to melt the fuse. Remove the fuse and look for signs of heat or flux running from the silver ends of the fuse. if you see signs of it being hot I would replace the fuse and fuse holder. Make sure ALL connections are tight and give it a try. I search long and hard to find fuse holders I like and can trust to do a long term repair. if you cant count on a part, the repair wont hold up and then Its MY reputation that suffers, Damn companies always choosing the cheap way out on making parts. When I started repairing Microwaves, a Home Microwave cost about 800.00 I see them sell at certain stores for 18.88!!!! how can you have good parts in there for 18.88?? Nobody makes things to last anymore. SAD!!! Fill The landfills and buy a new one. except the new one is Cheap Garbage!! Since it goes blank it sound like it is losing power. Always could be outlet you have it plugged into. Try different location first, on different breaker

I don't believe it is possible to change the display angle/tilt on this microwave. The unit ships with a protective film over the display that should be removed to make the display easier to read. However, this model is known to be difficult to read unless looking at straight-on. That and needing a flashlight to look at your food with the door open since the internal light does not stay on when door is opened. Good luck!.

Our panasonic inverter microwave (3
We have a Panasonic Inverter microwave. Door became difficult to close
and had to slam it hard while holding themicrowave to keep it from
moving. When opening the door did not pop open but did unlatch. I
ordered a new door lever from Panasonic. When got part I removed case
from microwave and lever was okay. I then removed the perimeter strip on
the inside of the door. With a screwdriver I stretched the spring at
the bottom that keeps the door latches pulled downward. Spring still
worked just not as stiff. Put perimeter piece back on the door and
replaced housing (which I didn't need to remove in the first place), and
then put a small drop of vegetable oil on the cams where the door
latches hit when closing door. Viola, door opens and closed as new.
Problem solved. Diagnosis: over time the latch tension spring hardens
and gets too stiff. P.S.: I had several similar springs as backup in
case I screwed up the original one.

the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback
signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will
stop the cook cycle.

for 2 seconds, relay clicks, unit goes off. Cook time on display goes
off and clock time comes back. Bad upper interlock switch and charred
That may be a loose connection in the wiring between the
inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of
components has failed.
Due to the lethal
voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an
inexperienced person work on these.
