Question about Panasonic NN-T990SA Microwave Oven
I have a Panosonic 1300 w microwave about 4 years old. It's a(F00064W70AP)) Type AP103. It'll start and run for about 5 seconds and just shut off. Anything I can do?
SOURCE: My three second microwave
This is probably due to a defective or possibly loose magnetron.
If yours has loose mounting nuts / bolts or the wire mesh RF gasket was not installed or got pinched, that can also cause
this RF leakage interference inside the oven.
It may also need a new high-voltage diode and stirrer, and the cavity may be affected.
GE had a campaign (but not a recall!) covering several models.

I pulled the top and sides (one piece) of the microwave. Near where the 110 volt line goes into the unit is a standard fuse ( 18 amp). I used an ohmeter on ther fuse and determined that it was not working and replaced it. Problem solved - unless it blows again.

Not sure of the TT series models but for the NN series models the procedure is as follows:-
If "Child" is displayed in the display window, then the child safety lock is on.
To remove the child safey lock, press the "Stop/Reset" button 3 times in fairly short succession (less than 3 seconds). The time of day or just the Colon sign (:) is then displayed
If you later want to apply the Child safety lock, then, when the time of day (or colon sign) is displayed, press "Start" 3 times (again in short succession).
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Microwave won't heat anything
Yeah, it's time to invest in a new oven. The magnetron tube in yours most likely just finally wore out. It's the source of the microwaves, and like any tube it gets weaker with age and finally just quits altogether. It would cost more for a new magnetron than it would for a new oven these days.
