SOURCE: need small microwave for inverter on houseboat

Look at the rating sticker on the oven and use the AC power rating as your guide. The cooking power of the oven is not important, but the power it needs from the AC supply is. Voltage times current is the supply power needed (watts), and you want an oven that will draw less than the inverter's continuous rating, less any power being used by other appliances.

For instance, a microwave rated for 120 volts AC at 10 amps needs 1200 watts. Your inverter would be OK with this as long as other devices aren't using more than another 1000 watts. You can't use the inverter's peak rating. That's only for brief bursts, like when the microwave first kicks on and draws some extra current.

Any mid-power (600 watts or so) oven should be OK.

SOURCE: Panasonic microwave oven model NN965BF need a parts manuel

This parts manual may be close, and may at least help with nomenclature, but Encompass can verify part numbers.

As far as I know, there are only two inverters used, and one will have a part number of F606Y6G00CP.

You can order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

The settings on my microwave appear fine. Then I set the time for let's say 50 seconds and it turns off in 5 - 9 seconds. Then what you see is the correct time --- no other message.


If this is an inverter oven, it could mean that there is a problem on the inverter board. Testing these boards is fairly simple. You just need to find a service manual for that model.

Need a service manual for Panasonic inverter assembly A606YM30


See the safety file here first.

Normally it's best to look up the microwave oven's service manual by model number and go from there, but since you didn't list that, this should help.

I have several publications including manuals and bulletins in my files covering Panasonic inverters. They are here:

Your full model number would be either GH6177XPS1, GH6177XPS2, GH6177XPS3, or GH6177XPS4 as found on the model tag. I mention that only if you need to order parts.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

mini_manual_behind_grille_small.jpgdee77f7.jpgAt our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

On the tech sheet for our model, trouble code F7 is discussed:

F7 Power to magnetron interrupted

1. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
2. After 40 seconds, check to see whether this solves the problem.
3. Unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
4. Check cooling fan operation
5. Check resistance of the magnetron thermostat.
6. Check the magnetron.
7. Check P2, P4 and P27 connections.
8. Check wiring to the 1100W inverters and control system. See "Checking Inverters."
9. Check operation of all interlock switches.
10. Replace inverter, if defective.
11. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
12. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
13. If problem persists, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
14. Replace electronic control.
15. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
16. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.
17. If problem persists, unplug microwave oven or disconnect power.
18. Check for reversed plug connection on controls or loose wiring.
19. Replace all parts and panels before operating.
20. Plug in microwave oven or reconnect power.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

MY microwave is giving me an error code F7 - call for service


This is all i could find on this error, Its alot to check. Microwave will not operate (cook). F7 error code
appears on the display.
Electrical circuit interruption between L1 and Neutral in
the microwave inverter circuit.
Possible reasons:
1. Check door, hinge and cavity front alignment and adjust
as needed.
2. Check the operation of all interlock switches.
3. Check over temperature protector for the magnatron.
4. Check all Cavity Thermostats for closed circuit.
5. Unplug the oven for at least 40 seconds. If this solves
the problem
A. Check the Cooling Fan for proper operation or
blockage
B. Check the resistance of the magnetron thermostat.
It should be 0 Ohms, replace if necessary.
6. Check that the control cable to the 1100 watt inverter
is properly connected to plug P2 on the display PCB
& Adjust or Reconnect
7. If interlock switches operate correctly, replace 1100W
inverter.
8. If problem persists, replace control assembly

F-9 Error code


The F9 error code indicates a failed inverter. If resetting the unit does not help you will need to have the inverter & harness checked.


http://media.fotki.com/1_p,wbgdfgsrsttwqwbxgtqsskgwtqkq,vi/kgdfkfrkkxkfdtftrfb/1/1303472/5961857/image45625img-or.jpg

This can sometimes by caused by a power surge or glitch through the electrical lines.
You can sometimes clear this fault by completely unplugging the microwave for 1 minute.
Plug it back in and see if the fault code returns.
If it does, then you have an internal component failure that will need to be serviced by a technician.
Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances.
Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged.
A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair.

It does not ALWAYS indicate a inverter control board problem however in other brands/models.
LG's service manual (for an example) suggests the f-9 code could be due to line voltage, magnetron, inverter module, "Relay2", or a loose connection between door/magnetron/control pcb.
Other indications might help narrow down these choices before having to pull out your multimeter and crack open the microwave case.
For example, if the microwave works, but heats slowly, then the troubleshooting manual narrows your choices down to magnetron or line voltage problems, and pretty much rules out the other possibilities.

Panasonic nn-sn667b 1300w dead


You might consider just replacing the inverter assembly itself.

It will cost more than replacing the bad discrete components of course, but you would be avoiding the time and money involved in parts research, trial and error, and possible destruction of any newly installed parts if there remain other undiscovered defective components.

The inverter assembly (part # F606Y8M00AP) can be had for $79.12 here.

Otherwise, you would need to order the service manual, which is not listed by the major Panasonic distributors.

The service manual should be # SM-NNSN667.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics. Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

In this case, call might be more productive to track down the service manual.

Good luck, and be safe.

There is a mini-manual inside the oven which can aid in troubleshooting.

 

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

 

F7 BULLETIN

 

Whirlpool Models GH9177XL GH5176XP GH5184XP GH6178XP GH6177XP KHHS178L KHHS179L

 

Microwave will not operate (cook). F7 error code appears on the display.

 

Electrical circuit interruption between L1 and Neutral in the microwave inverter circuit.

 

Possible reasons:

 

1. Check door, hinge and cavity front alignment and adjust as needed.

 

2. Check the operation of all interlock switches.

 

3. Check over temperature protector for the magnetron.

 

4. Check all Cavity Thermostats for closed circuit.

 

5. Unplug the oven for at least 40 seconds. If this solves the problem

 

A. Check the Cooling Fan for proper operation or blockage

 

B. Check the resistance of the magnetron thermostat. It should be 0 Ohms, replace if necessary.

 

6. Check that the control cable to the 1100 watt inverter is properly connected to plug P2 on the display PCB
& Adjust or Reconnect

 

7. If interlock switches operate correctly, replace 1100W inverter.

 

8. If problem persists, replace control assembly.

NOTES ON INVERTERS

 

This model uses an inverter to produce high voltage instead of a convential transformer system.

 

While an inverter (switched-mode power supply) is more efficient from a power consumption standpoint, it is more complex, thus more statistically prone to fail. These should only be examined and worked on by someone who has the necessary technical qualifications. Seriously.

 

Often the machine-soldered connections in a microwave inverter are too weak, so they eventually fail, especially if heat is high in the area. They sometimes fail catastrophically. When not catastrophically damaged, you may hear clicking or squealing and may smell an electrical odor, which is sometimes obscured by the cooling fan.

 

Some manufacturers do not encourage or assist technicians to repair microwave inverters. Most offer the inverter as a whole assembly. But sometimes that is actually cheaper than the time and labor required to fix the old one.

 

If a technician is willing and able to troubleshoot and repair the inverter to component level, it will may be expensive, but may be worth it, especially if he or she will resolder and reinforce connections as needed as part of a thorough repair. That could easily make your inverter beter than a new one!

 

You might be able to get some verbal estimates if you call Panasonic-authorized repair shops and ask then specifically about inverter repair and inverter replacement costs for your model number.
