Question about Panasonic NN-S961 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Nothing works except the display

When I press start the display looks like it's on but nothing else works. No fan, no hum, no turntable. After three seconds I hear a click and it shuts off. It does the same no matter what type of heating function I input. The clock and timer work and I can input changes to the functions menu.

    I forgot to add that I tried unplugging the unit and it still acts the same

    that answer makes sense. I'll look into whether it's worth fixing. Thanks

If 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.

It may be a loose connection in the wiring between the inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of those components has failed.


Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

The problem is that when I press the 'Start' button, nothing happens. The clock is working, the fan is working, but I cannot cook anything even after I have entered the time and the power level


If when you press the start button the turntable starts but no heat then magnetron is faulty otherwise if nothing happens then the touchpad itself is faulty.

There are two things that come to mind, the magnetron is starting to fail, or the strapping has come loose on the fan motor housing, unplug microwave oven and remove top, [several screws] carefully inspect the fan for any loose mounts and tighten.

Maytag microwave suddenly stopped working, overheated, nothing was cooking.


It is more than likely the magnetron is fried, to replace fuse! unplug microwave oven, remove top, "several screws" look to the right to the keypad control board, look down to a printed circuit board, clipped fuse should be near by, pop it out and replace with same current rating, assemble before testing, "lethal voltages present"

Microwave popped and now does not heat


Okay, first we need to separate the situations. You were boiling water on the stove and had the range hood fan running to **** up the steam. Then you put something in the microwave to heat and you heard a pop and then zip-o.

The water on the stove has nothing to do with the situation, the fan you turn on is not part of the microwave, so it has nothing to do with the microwave.

The pop you heard and then the humming suggests the magnetron failed. You said you found a blow fuse and replaced it and still nothing, right? The magnetron is the most likely culprit...I would think it is safe to say that the magnetron shorted and drew enough current to blow the fuse.

Replace the magnetron and if that doesn't work, let me know here. Good Luck!

Light, turntable and fan don't work


Possibly the light bulb has blown, which has blown on a track on the board which has taken out the turntable motor and the fan. Also, there could be a problem with the door switch.

Sharp 1870 just quit cooking and no turntable


The fact that the microwave and convection both do not heat indicated that the oven is in demo mode, check the user manual, otherwise it will possibly be a relay not triggering, may need a pcb replacement, check Demo mode 1st....Phil

1800 XL JVM1860BD - won't work


It sounds like your controller may be failing. Or it could be an electrical line problem. Any other electrical itmes giving you trouble? Has anyone measured the voltage level of your power line? It should be around 110-125 volts AC. If it's significantly lower or higher, you may have a bad connection in your breaker panel or in the wiring leading to the home.
