Troubleshooting your Panasonic microwave oven requires removal of the cover. There may be a loose or broken connection inside. Be sure to read and heed the dangerous voltage warning. As for the repair or replace issue, that depends on age (in appliance years) and whether parts cost and labor are reasonable.

Loud hum,louder than normal, when start is pushed and then high heat smell like it might start fire so I turned off. Would it be the transformer or the magnetron?


Hard to say. Usually the Magnetron and transformer are all one unit. More likely a short in the control board. If the oven is a built in and more than a few years old, it probably ode not pay to fix. If it is a counter top or over the range model it will be far cheaper to by a new.

Just blew up no lights no nothing it is set into the wall


if there are not light there are usually two fuses in the unit one where the power cord comes into the unit and one that goes when the unit gets to hot. if the unit if a counter top unit you will need to go buy some safety star bits for the hardware store to get the cabinet off. just check the fuses with a ohm meter.

Micro wave made a popping noise now does not heat up food as hot


The popping noise was probably the capacitor or high voltage diode blowing.

Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch and fuse.
