On many models, you press "Stop / Reset" three times.

A hard reset may help: Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If you don't have your owner's manual, you can probably download it (or one that's very close) here:

If that doesn't work, you can contact Panasonic UK at http://panasonic.co.uk/customer-Support/svc-dealer-locator.asp

You will need to remove the oven from the frame, then remove the outer cover from the door.

Once the outer cover's off, you'll be able to see that door opening button presses against the door opening lever, which presses up on the door key/hook to open the door.

Usually the problem is a broken door opening lever.

You can order that part directly from Panasonic here.

Once it's fixed, if you want to download the owner's manual, it's here.

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 that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

You may instead have a failed keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs, which depends on the exact model, one of these:

See if this describes what's happening:

  • Put in time, push start and unit runs for 2 seconds, relay clicks, unit goes off. Cook time on display goes off and clock time comes back. Bad upper interlock switch and charred connector
If so, see http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt , http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt and http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

Otherwise, if the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle.

That may be a loose connection in the wiring between the inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of those components has failed.


Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

The problem I had experienced with the Door not opening easily will be resolved by removing the micowave oven top cover with a tamper proof torx head, replacing the door switch and reinstalling the top cover.

Microwave genius sensor 1300w


I don't believe it is possible to change the display angle/tilt on this microwave. The unit ships with a protective film over the display that should be removed to make the display easier to read. However, this model is known to be difficult to read unless looking at straight-on. That and needing a flashlight to look at your food with the door open since the internal light does not stay on when door is opened. Good luck!.

My Panasonic 1300w microwave will not turn off. It doesn't cook but won't turn off without actually unplugging it or opening the door and leaving it open. Any help?


You may have a shorted door switch or a shorted relay on the control board.

You can see a help file on door switches here.

Over the range microwave oven


The problem is the release spring is broken or the button is sticking, pick up a small can of electronic cleaner attach straw and spray into the button crevis to break down the crud, grime, and dirt this should help release the mechanism.

Shuts off after 15 seconds


sounds as if the magnetron has gone bad.this part of the machine is still under a warranty,and you need to call for a service technician to look at it.

do not use the unit until you get someone to look at it and or replace it.

[Identical to earlier posting by stefeckstein]


Check for a circuit breaker on the back. If nothing, pull the plug and remove the case. Look for a blown fuse. If so, look for a shorted high voltage diode in the magnetron power supply or a shorted stirrer bearing located above or beside the cavity area where the microwaves enter. The stirrer is a metal fan-like device with a plastic bearing that often arcs internally. That shorts the microwaves out and blows a fuse. Replace the stirrer.

My Panasonic Microwave Genius 1300W will not heat up the food and the rotate dish spins and the sensor reheat will not heat up the food. Nor cook Pop Corn when pressing the buttons to 2:00 cook time. I...


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

What cause the wattage difference?


Wattage is based upon voltage & current. I would think that on the 1300W unit, either the voltage or the current is higher than that which is used on the 1200W unit.

Perhaps the magnetron in the 1300W unit is being driven harder. Are the fans the same size?, The magnetron in the 1300W could be running harder and they have a larger fan in it.

In any event, if the part numbers are the same, you should have no trouble using one units parts to fix the other.

Good luck!
