Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

    OUCH! That hurts!

    Actually most manufacturers will honor the warranty with the model & serial number, or if simply sign an affidavit stating when you purchased it.

    You'll never know if you don't contact them.

    It
    may be the fuse, which is usually located behind the grille, on
    the
    floor of the oven behind the control panel, between the door switches,
    or on the filter board near where the cord comes into the unit.





    It will be a 15A or 20A ceramic fuse, either gray or white.



    You should be able to
    get one from a home center or local appliance parts store.



    If
    the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout (TCO)
    / thermal fuse on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body
    of the oven.



    If it went dead almost
    immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted
    high-voltage capacitor.




    If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing
    high-voltage transformer.




    If
    it goes dead or blows the breaker (or GFI) when you plug it in or open
    or close
    the door, then there's a problem with a door switch or door switch
    mount.



    If you need other parts, I would refer you back to the contact links in my solution above.

Panasonic 1250w genius senor inverter less then a year old. Control panel lights up, works.microwave itself does not, control panel shuts off in a few seconds


When a Panasonic Inverter Microwave shuts off after a feew seconds, it is either a bad inverter which is the quite expensive circuit board that powers the magnetron that puts out the microwave energy, or a bad magnetron, Or BOTH typically this would be a costly repair, But since it is still under warranty. You need to find a Panasonic warranty service provider in your area. If it is a counter top unit, you may have to take it to them for repair.

I have an Emerson 900W Microwave MW8999SB and it will randomly assign DEF1 and the rest of the keypad is difficult or not functioning. None of the quick buttons work, and only the 30-second button works....


Pressing the Clear/Pause button works. Sometimes. Most of the time, about a microsecond after pressing Clear/Pause, it goes right back to def1. Most of the time, pressing ANY button doesn't work. Usually takes me 10 to 20 tries to get anything to work. My microwave is about 3 months old. I will never buy Emerson again.

Microwave Quit Heating


The Magnotron goes out on many of the lower priced models in the first yr.,(and some of the higher end ones too!) As the components there do most of the hard work. Better to just find a recycler who takes them and scrap it.
As for the replacement that sounds like an excellent idea!

Microwave not turning on


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If you still have trouble, since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
