Question about Panasonic Nn-sd681s 1 2cuft 1200 Watt Microwave With Inverter

Open Question

Panasonic nn-sd681s shuts off after a few seconds sometimes wont come on at all

This is an intermittent problem. We thought it might have something to do with the door. I cleaned the door and the door frame really well with water. Opening and closing the door sometimes fixes the problem. The unit heats fine and everything else seems to work otherwise. We have had it about 1.5 years.

SOURCE: Microwave shuts off after 3 seconds

Although your model number doesn't seem to show up, the NNS950-series units are powered by an high-voltage inverter. And yours has failed. While an inverter (switched-mode power supply) is more efficient from a power consumption standpoint, it is more complex, thus more statistically prone to fail. These should only be examined and worked on by someone who has the necessary technical qualifications. Seriously. Often the machine-soldered connections in a microwave inverter are too weak, so they eventually fail, especially if heat is high in the area. They sometimes fail catastrophically. When not catastrophically damaged, you may hear clicking or squealing and may smell an electrical odor, which is sometimes obscured by the cooling fan. Sometimes a whole new inverter is cheaper than the time and labor required to fix the old one. If a technician is willing and able to troubleshoot and repair the inverter to component level, it will may be expensive, but may be worth it, especially if he or she will resolder and reinforce connections as needed as part of a thorough repair. That could easily make your inverter beter than a new one! You might be able to get some verbal estimates if you call Panasonic-authorized appliance / microwave repair shops and ask then specifically about inverter component-level repair and simple inverter replacement costs for your exact model number.

In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

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. You can find one here.

SOURCE: Panasonic NN-P295 Cooktop Light not working

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

SOURCE: panasonic nn-s255 wont turn on

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.

It 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.

If this is an older oven, or an oven that has heated a lot of popcorn, or other low water content foods, then you might be looking at a magnetron that has become intermittent. The symptoms you describe, however, do not match the symptoms you usually see with this type of failure.

Based on your description of the problem, I'd investigate the possibility of an intermittent power relay. The contacts on these eventually burn and sometimes don't make a good connection. After the contacts first close, there're is an initial surge of current that might make the relay functional for a second or two, and then the damaged contacts no longer make contact.

During cooking,microwave stopped,no power.


Not good news; Panasonic uses a technologically superior power supply with higher efficiency but an overall worse record than those using a 'linear' supply with far fewer parts and a good track record of reliability.

The modern (switched mode) power supply places a lot more stress on components and requires more and higher quality parts than the old-style circuit.

If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

If it stops at 16 seconds and is a sensor model, it probably has a defective humidity sensor.
