Question about Panasonic NN-T888S Convection/Microwave Oven

Using too much electicity!

We have been checking our electricity units, have noticed that when I am cooking with the fan oven they go up dramaticly. Is this because my combination oven is over 8 years old?

We have been checking our electricity units
Not sure how you are checking but your microwave would blow fuses or trip a breaker if it was drawing more than it did since they are only ~ 50% efficient (any of them) which means a 1000 watt unit is pushing the limits of normal household circuits anyhow.
I bought two Kill-A-Watt power monitors for our two households and we are all happy with their convenience and the ability to quickly check anything that plugs into a standard US outlet and they are plenty accurate enough for us heathens.
Take a look:

I didn't price-shop too much but ours came to only $14 each plus shipping of $10 US.

Advantium 120 not working


see this causes and fix it. God bless you
If the microwave will not work at all, make sure power is on at the outlet and test the electrical cord. Test the fuse and replace it if it is faulty. Also check the door to make sure it closes properly. Test and, if needed, replace the fan.
If the oven doesn't cook or cooks only intermittently but the display is on, check the door interlock switch, the thermal cutout, and the fan, replacing parts that don't pass the test.

If the oven keeps blowing fuses, check for a faulty door interlock or monitor switch.

Microwave exaust fan starts on its own


There's a humidity sensor in this microwave oven that turns on the fan automatically if it senses an excess amount of humidity (steam from cooking for example) to possibly protect humidity or moisture from building up inside the unit.

Cooks fine, but fan & carousel run slow and light is dim


It sounds perfectly normal. A microwave generally draws about 13 amps or more when cooking at full power. That's a considerable amount. This current draw will actually "load down" the power line, resulting in a small but measurable drop in the voltage. The decreased voltage means the light will be dimmer and the motors for the fan and turntable will run a bit slower. BUT if you ever have _chronic_ flickering, dimming or brightening lights in your home, it could be the result of a bad connection on the neutral, etc., which can lead to a very dangerous condition. Once in a while is okay, but if it happens a lot, your landlord or electric company should examine the lines.
