Question about Panasonic NN-T990SA Microwave Oven

1 Answer

We had a bad power surge during a storm last week which fried my Panasonic NN-T990saf. My question is it worth trying to get it repaired or should I just buy a new micro wave?

Although lightning damage is normally fatal to anything with electronics inside, you might remove the back panel and look for fuse holders. If you find one (minimum) or two (likely), replace them (if you have a cheap multimeter you can check for continuity) and see  if it will turn on. You may have to do a little telephone work to locate the high current fuse which is probably 30 amps.  
If you live in an area of frequent lightning strikes, investing in a 'whole house' surge arrester makes sense. These are installed in the main breaker box and any brand I've seen comes with a $10-25,000 insurance policy to replace any dead appliances that fail despite the surge protector. They cost $150-250 US plus installation which you can save if you are afraid to DIY.

Panasonic convection oven nn-cd989s, complete power off during prebake cycle of 450 deg which was directed to remove light oil coating from manufacturing process . Now unit has no power on face panel


Check the 20 amp fuse where the power cord ends inside the oven. If it is open check the latch switches. If the switches check ok the invertor is probably bad, smoking.

Did you recently have trouble with the cooktop lights?

Sometimes when the cooktop lights blow or are inserted or removed while the oven is still plugged in, the filaments can short, causing a surge that damages the controller.

They can be repaired. More details here.

Panasonic NN-P794 NO HEAT this thing will run for 18 seconds only, then shuts off. Everything else works fine. Is it worth fixing?


Have you unplugged it and allowed it to reset itself? Sometimes the wire comes undone to the magnetron, that could be the answer. It is is bad (magnetron) it could be melted and dangerous to use. A bad magnetron is too expensive to repair. Also, another possiblity is the metalic shield may need fixed or replaced (about $20.00). If it's under warranty, take it back.

My model nn-p295wf microwave stopped working ,all power just stopped, about a year ago. I took it to a repair shop and they replaced the DIODE and the fuse, then it worked again. Afew weeks ago it happened...


Replace the magnetron, safety fuse and diode as a set and check the door interlock switches.
That should get it working for another year or so.
Don't forget microwave mains fuses are special sand filled and semisurge type.

In all likelihood the mangnetron is failed or failing, or perhaps even the Power Supply is faulty. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one

My microwave turns on when the door is openned.


UNPLUG AND DONT USE you have a bad or wet control board . if you gave cleaned the keypad in the last day or so , it might dry out in a few days ......if not it just went bad . most control boards are between 130.00 and 160.00 without looking up your oven ... so in most cases its not worth the repair
