It is likely your microwave was hit by a power surge associated with the lightning strike.

A mains surge may have taken out the fuse. To find the fuse, remove it from the mains, remove the outer cover and follow where the power cable enters the case. There will be a PCBoard with a fuse on it.
Always replace the fuse with one of exactly the same type and value!

Hello. My Panasonic NN-K153W microwave owen keypad does not responding, beside three keys- stop, clock and the one with symbol of microwave in the left upper corner. I can not setup the clock because no...


Other than a complete power off, I know of no reset switch on any microwave ovens. I own a panasonic myself.

I would leave it unplugged for a while, at least 15 minutes or so, and leave the door open, to turn on the inside light (which won't light if unplugged but) so it might discharge any capacitors holding residual power to the circuit.

If it wasn't power protected, it could have taken a hit.

If it is plugged into a surge protector, they wear out. You might be able to make a claim on it through the surge protector manufacturer, if it has a warranty, and you have receipt. Surge protectors do wear out, and most unless they're the cheapest, will have a warranty that covers equipment. The wear out because the varistor which provides the voltage clamping during a surge become conditioned. Initially they clamp around 150V to 180V, but as they age from repeated surges, their clamping voltage rises until it no longer protects the equipment. Often you can tell, if the surge protector LED is blinking or intermittent, the company will replace the surge device if you make a claim on the protector, if it fails while in use, they usually cover the equipment, unless the warranty has run out, but many give lifetime warranties.

The reason some keys may have been working is because after a small surge, the logic states can go indeterminate, which means some work, and some won't. If it's not damaged, a full power off for some time may restore it to initial conditions.

Hope this helps. They should build in surge protection, and I think mind does have some; but, if not, I hope it's in warranty for you.

Microwave not getting power


Unplug the microwave oven from the surge protector and plug it directly into a working outlet. If the microwave now works you will know that it is the surge protector that is not working. If the microwave still doesnt work you may want to trash it and just get a new one as they are now much cheaper, many around 50 dollars, and more efficiently use power.

Possible power surge?


Sounds like you got a surge which damaged the control panel. This is the most likely thing. We regularly repair these control panels nationwide for $32.50. A fuse is designed protect against excessive current. But if you have excessive voltage (a surge or spike), it can be so fast that it gets past the fuse and damages the control panel without actually blowing it. While the panel does have surge protection to keep that surge from actually destroying the control panel, the panel is damaged and will have to be repaired. If any power line connections were broken or are suspect, I hope you have contacted the power company. Either way, I would test any affected outlets to be sure the neutral and ground are present so the voltage output is within the proper range.
