You need to know if it is sending power to the Big High Voltage tranjsformer. You say it is timing down, but does it run like normal and just no heat?? Or is it timing down but not running. If that is the case probably bad door switches and bad connections to the switch. If it is running but no heat , possiblw bad magnetron or bad connections at the mag.
Just as a NOTE: When I bought my Panasonic microwave from AAFES, before I took it home, they sent it through their maintenance department to adjust the internal voltage. Power for the US is 60 HZ. Power in Europe is 50 HZ. Long Technical Explanation shortened: there's more energy (Heat) in 50 Hz than 60HZ especially when used in anything that uses high power. AAFES adjusted the internal power down to compensate and keep from blowing up the unit. Look for a fuse inside. Replace it, then ask AAFES to reconfigure the product for lower power or 50Hz. Also as a note, many, dare I say most, clocks from the US count the HZ to count time. So if your US clock, say on your coffeepot timer, looses time overseas; it's probably losing 4 hours a day (do the math: 50 hz/60hz=83.333_%. 83.3_%*24 hr=20 hrs or 4 hours lost). So, if your time is set for 7AM coffee start, when you get that cup of coffee at 7:10AM, set your clock forward to 11:10 AM; or at 7PM, make sure it actually says 9PM. It will loose enough time by the next 7AM to be correct.
The door switches are slightly out of alignment. If you run the microwave and shift the door up or down, the micro might begin working.. The control panel must be removed and the door switches adjusted. I would not suggest you doing this yourself, as it may affect the microwave leakage through the door gap.
To set the clock, press and hold the clock/timer button for three
seconds. A clock icon will appear on the left side of the screen. Input
the time using the numerical buttons and then click the clock/timer
button to save the time.
To set the timer, press and release the clock/timer button so that the
display shows all zeroes. Enter the desired time using the keypad. Press
start/stop to start the countdown. The countdown may be paused by
pressing the stop/start button and resumed by pressing the same button
When countdown is complete, timer will beep continuously for thirty
seconds and display will flash. Timer will then beep every ten seconds
for ten minutes until the stop/start button is pressed.
This timer will also time up to time activities. To start count up,
press clear/memory so timer reads all zeroes. Press stop/start and a
plus sign will appear on the right side of the screen as the timer
begins counting up.
Magnetron of your Microwave oven may be defective. If there is a fuse between the highvoltage transformer and to the highvoltahe capacitor check the fuse is blown off. If so replace the fuse. If it is Ok change the Magnetron.
