Any action requested triggers a self check that goes on and on, always starts over and over again, with no apparant reason. Pushing the ON button on the machine for 10 seconds after some time puts the machine back in operation. This does not work with the remote.
Consequently, usage of my universal remote is impaired.
Any ideas whta this might be?
Hi, I took advice from this site and changed a 5 pin regulator chip on the Power supply board; STR-G6353. The chip cost £6.33 + £4.99pp +Vat from Nikko Electronics.
This unit cost me £500. I don't think I will be buying Panasonic again. Note, I also tried resoldering the joints before changing the chip. It made no difference. Seems the chip had genuinely blown. Possibly due to heat dissipation issue, suggest adding extra heat sink to stop issue reoccuring.

Re: Self check for no reason - always
First thing I would do is unplug this unit for about 30 seconds and see if that clears up the problem. If it does then the microcontroller was probably just stuck in a loop and all confused. If you still have the problem after doing this, it will probably have to go to a professional repair shop or authorized panasonic service center for repair. I would guess that bad capacitor(s) in the power supply lines going to the logic section of the main PCB could cause the symptoms you're experiencing. Good Luck.

Is it an automatic self defrosting unit? If so, defrosting the freezer will cure your problem temporarily. When the defrost timer fails to defrost automatically, ice builds up again and plugs the chute between the freezer and the fridge and the fridge gets hot.....If this action is repeatable,(meaning you can manually defrost but it only lasts a few days) then for some reason, the automatic defrost timer is not working. It's either the timer itself or one of the fuses.....there is always the chance that the thermostat, which tells the timer when to turn on and off, is also defective, but most of the time, the defrost timer is the culprit. Check the fuses first, then the defrost timer.
hi that may be the relay on the compressor pull the refrig out listen around the lower back where the compressor is if you dont hear it there there is a computer a little higher that maybe bad making the sound jim
It seems like the fuel gauge doesn't get any signals from the fuel level sensor which is located inside the tank and is attached to the fuel sensor. the reason that it goes up and down every time you turn the car on and off is a self check action by the cluster board itself.
Your sprayer is self powered? you don't use a separate compressor? I have one with a compressor and it has to be taken apart " the gun" everytime or the trigger becomes stiff. If it's self powered, I would say your mixture is too stiff and water and it should be fine..If not and if it's self powered, then your motor may not work properly.
I would let the oven cool down then unplug the range from the power for at least 10 minutes. Then plug the range back in and see if the error goes away and the oven unlocks. Hopefully this re-sets the system. If the error does not go away then there might be a fusable link in the broiler/burner compartment that has melted due to the fire as a safety feature. If that is the case then a new fusable link might need to be installed to get the range working again. The reason for this is because there might have been electrical wiring or other components that were damaged from the fire.
Your husband is correct, kind of. You should not try self clean again until you get the oven repaired. You have a temp sensor going out. I doubt that the oven actually got too hot, most likely the resistor in the sensor is failing as it heats up and giving a false temp reading.Since the lower oven was operating at the time, it is probably the sensor in the lower oven. Don't use it for baking until you get it repaired. It will go out completely and shut down both ovens. You should be able to get a new sensor for around $30 and they are not hard to replace.
The oven won't set your house on fire during clean mode if the cabinets were built with the correct air space and dimensions, but they do get very hot, about 800 degrees F. Most ovens give no trouble during the clean cycle, but if there is any weak components in the electronics system it will show up then. It will give you less trouble over time if you don't use the self clean mode and just manually clean it.
