Your owner's manual should cover it.

I'd say the child lock has been activated.

If it has a "Help" button, look for the lock option.

Otherwise, do a hard reset by unplugging it for a couple of minutes, then setting them clock.

SOURCE: I HAVE A PANASONIC NNSS277S OVER THE RANGE

IMHO this is an expensive microwave and it is pretty poor that the door mechanism is so weak considering that it gets constant stress from opeing and closing the door and especially since the part that breaks is integral to the expensive control panel. I have the same problem with my microwave after only 2 1/2 years of use. After some fiddling I got it apart as follows. Remove the three screws that hold on the top grille (above the door) on and lift off the grille. Turn off the power to the microwave at the switch panel. Remove the two screws above the control display that are now visible after removing the top grille. Do NOT pry this panel off, slide it upwards to unlatch the hooks and lift it off carefully. There are a lot of wires which you will have to unplug (note their locations although none of the plugs are interchangeable) and separate the panel from the microwave. You can now check the latch itself and open the door by putting your finger under the lift latch and genly pushing upwards. If the door won't open the problem is in the latch mechanism which can be removed by taking out the two screws on the inside of the case an unplugging the many wires (note locations, a couple of them can be plugged back in the same place). If the problem is the same as the one I had it is in the actualy release button assembly where one of the brackets are broken. You will either have to replace the whole display & control panel or glue the bracket back together. I'm in the process of trying to glue it with epoxy but I can't vouch for how reliable the repair will be. Remove the screws that secure the control panel metal reinforcement and unplug the flat cable then remove it carefully. If either of the plasting pivot brackets moves it is broken. With the metal plate removed the problem should be obvious.

Sharp R1870 microwave door will not open and child lock is not on.


We have the applicable service manuals for these models and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

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.

Chances are the rear of the door open button and/or the face of the door open lever is worn enough that it will not actuate properly. Or the lever may be broken.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should
open.

You can order parts for this brand from Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Child sign in window of microwave ,cant start it panasonic


On my NN-L738BA there is a Child Lock feature.
You set the child lock by pressing the Start button 3 times.
If the Child Lock is enabled it displays the word :CHILD".

To disable this feature on my microwave the manual says to
press the Stop/Reset 3 times.

Check your manual for the Child Lock.

Panasonic NN-ST666W Microwave oven


What usually breaks is the door open lever, but it may be that the rear of the door open button and the face of the door open lever are worn to the point where they will not actuate.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this.

On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be
removed in most cases.

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

You can find Panasonic parts in Australia here.
