    It's not spray cleaner but I think that moisture has got in there, where I was hiding a cooling chicken from the cat!! Thank you very much, I'll give that a go.

Is it possible that some spray cleaner accidentally got into the controls?

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

Always spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

Always use the vent fan when cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

The best place to order Panasonic parts is Tritronics. You can also call them at 866-779-5835.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

PANASONIC Microwave Inverter #NN-SD697S. Everything works except the START button. Works sometimes, and not other times. Checked outlet, all was good.

This is either the door sensing switch (most likely) or a bad membrane switch [start switch] (that's what Panasonic calls it) on the touch pad. The contacts on the door sensing switch can be slightly contaminated and not read "zero ohms" to the control PCB. The control board thinks that the door is open and it will not allow the cook cycle to start.

NN 8501V Panasonic Dimension 4 Convection/Microwave oven keeps blowing fuse

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open or close the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch mount.

If it's intermittent or random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or a loose fuse holder, or even an intermittent fuse.

I got this microwave in my house, but its not working. all the buttons are not working accept stop/cancel button. please send me the sollution.

I have a similar microwave that I recently repaired. NN-9854 (bad capacitor). So your microwave functions but you cant stop it unless you unplug it, it ends its cycle, or you open the door? Does it beep when pressed? If not, you need a new control pad.
