The usual cause is the tray motor assembly, or the power supply that feeds it. These parts are available from the parts rep for Panasonic. Contact Panasonic for details.
There are serious safety issues when servicing microwave ovens. I suggest to have the oven professionaly serviced by an experienced service tech for these products.

I would suspect that you have trouble with one of the door switches or its mount.
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 switch 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.

SOURCE: Hi, I have a Panasonic
If you have 15 minutes and a screwdriver (don't know which type is used on your unit), I would unplug from the AC, remove the housing so you can see the floor of the frame and the control devices, look for a fuse to replace, keeping your hands and fingers clear of any bare terminals.
This unit may have two fuses; one for the high voltage circuit for the magnetron, another for the other parts such as the control circuitry.
The first fuse will be 15-20 amperes, the second much lower.
If the fuses are visible and close to each other, make sure you know which fuse belongs where; they will have much different ratings for current.
Since the light and turntable are working, the lower value fuse is obviously OK, so if you find two fuses, remove and replace the higher value fuse.
If you do this, turn it on and the fuse blows again, then it is time to replace the unit with a new one since the other parts that can fail require a little technical background and a multimeter. The cost of having it done by a pro will likely amount to more than the unit is still worth.

Think about calling up the Sears 800-4MY-HOME line... the parts dept can look up your model with the LIS and have the part sent to your address and a Tech to install it for you if you don't know how, plus if you do pay for a tech repair for like $40 they do a clean and prevenative maitnence check on any other appliance you may have thats acting weird.
