Question about Danby Microwave Ovens

The high-voltage transformer (or inverter transformer) has probably failed.
Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.
I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer.

If it's clean inside and behind the stirrer cover, I would suspect a bad magnetron.
If you've had it less than 30 days (or whatever your dealer;'s return period is) I'd take it back.
Otherwise, since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

I would suggest that the overheat stat on the magnetron has blown. If you are happy it's a simple thing to do but just make sure you disconnect from the mains before removing the cover and make sure that the High voltage capacitor is discharged. If you are not sure a qualified service tech will be able to fix this for you at little cost.
Hope this helps
