I have a 13yr old above-range oven which quit when my wife cooked food in an aluminized foil wrapper (a small fire ensued!). This oven has 3 thermal protection units, on the magnetron, the chassis and on top of the food cavity. This last one had failed open, and since it's in series with the magnetron thermal protection unit and the main relay, nothing would work. MAT electronics sell the units for less than $4, but my problem now is to pick one with the appropriate temperature cut-off. They range from 200 to 300F.

SOURCE: FAULT CODE ERROR CODE EE2
"EE2" is magnetron (2) failure, but it doesn't necessarily mean the magnetron is bad.
It simply means that the reading sensed by the current transformer is incorrect.
It could be the magnetron, HV transformer, rectifier diode, HV capacitor, door switch, or relay.
I have uploaded a similar service manual to my site. Bear in mind your parts number may vary.

The 22 seconds is the giveaway.
In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.
Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.
I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer.

is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch
mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.
Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
If the mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.
One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.
If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.
