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 about 5 minutes. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

You can download most Panasonic owner's manuals here. It will tell you how to turn off the Child Lock.

This is most likely because of a faulty interlock monitor switch, operated by the door latch. If it thinks you're running the oven with the door open it will cause the fuse to blow (or trip a circuit breaker in your case). The switch may be bad (not opening as it should when the door is closed) or out of adjustment.

The switch is replaceable and it's not a costly part. You should have microwave service done by a professional, especially if it involves the door. There are potentially lethal voltages present with the cover off, and the possibility of microwave leakage is the repairs aren't dome properly.

Hope this gets you cooking again. Thanks for using Fixya!

H97, H98 or H99 mean that there's a problem with your inverter, magnetron, or digital programming circuit.

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.

March 2009 press the function key,select option #5, select option#2. This should take it out of child lock. If this doesn't work enclose your model number and I will try to look up the manual


Or, press "Cancel" three times to clear the (child) lock.
You set the lock by pressing "Start" three times.

SOURCE: panasonic microwave genius 1300watt - can unlock

First of all, thank you very much for choosing FIXYA today for your technical support needs.


Here is a direct link to the ONLINE USER'S MANUAL for that model:


http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/NNSD688S.PDF




To view the Owner's Manual with Operating Instructions just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and blue highlighted text just above.


This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information at the website indicated and the contents of the Owner's Manual.


You may need ADOBE READER installed on your computer to read PDF documents, although many computers already have this type of utility pre-installed.


You can download this free at WWW.ADOBE.COM if necessary.


Click on the DOWNLOAD ADOBE READER button on right side of the ADOBE home page when you get there, then follow the onscreen instructions to install the software on your computer.



See page 10 of the manual for detailed instructions and illustrations on how to operate the CHILD LOCK feature.


Basically you just push the START button 3 times in a row TO ENABLE the child lock.


And press the STOP / RESET button 3 times in a row TO DISABLE that feature.
I truly hope that was helpful to you.


Some newer models require you to push those same buttons 4 times in a row instead in order to operate that feature so you can try that as well.




Good luck and take care.


Joe.

Something in the door is causing microwave to shutoff. Sensor is on, but then shuts down unless,also you hold a certain pushing in the button.


Adjust the latch switch assembly to make sure that the door hooks engage with the switches. Loosen the 2 phillip screws holding the assembly and slide back and forth to adt. Retighten when the door hooks are making solid contact with the switches.
