Question about Panasonic NN-S561 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave stops after 3- 4 seconds

The labour (Canadian spelling) cost alone for someone to repair a microwave would be more than the cost of a new one. I'm going with junking it though I hate this "planned obsolesce" we're forced to live with.

Kenmore microwave model 7210413500 suddenly stopped heating. What are the steps I might take to troubleshoot and diagnose the probelem. Is there another microwave that can replace this model in the s

Model nimber is blocked out for some reason. But dont try to repair a microwave unless you understand how to work with high voltages. The voltages you are dealing with here are lethal. You must discharge the capacitor before any work can be done. Generally only two parts are do most of the failures, the diodes an the large capacitor. If you do not have the proper gear to test leave it alone. The cost to repair is usually runs higher than the cost of a new microwave.

I need a new door latch and upper latch micro switch. Where can I get these? Thanks

try online, but the cost will be prohibitive, cheaper to buy a new 1, you can get an all singing and dancing 1 from supermarket for less than 40, we are in a throwaway world now, cost of repairs out weighs replacement, the labour alone is 75 an hr.

Whirlpool mircowave model MH3184XP the display reads F2

There is a problem with the control pad. The membrane, or surface, of the pad may be broken or damaged somewhere, resulting in the F2 error code. This is common for Whirlpool microwaves.

Press "Stop/Cancel" twice and select a new cook program. Press "Start" to begin.

If the error code persists, press "Stop/Cancel" again and unplug the microwave. Wait several minutes and plug it in. If the F2 code appears again, it requires repair.

Replacement membranes can be found online

but the internals of a microwave are dangerous, having high voltages even when unplugged. With the cost of parts and labour from a service tech, you may be best buying a new oven.

I have a maytag built in microwave MMV4205BAW from August 2006. The microwave runs but does not heat and makes a slight buzzing sound. It sounds like the magnetron needs to be replaced. If this is not...

From the description it is the magnetron, it will be expensive for the part alone, and keep in mind shops have different rates making impossible to give exact quotes, but I would estimate parts and labour at least $250.00 or more, if you decide to go with the repair make sure the magnetron is not a aftermarket product it will last about 6 months.

Kitchenaid model KCMS1555Rss-2 microwave will not heat would like to replace those parts which fials the most often

The cost of parts and labour is in generally in excess of the cost of a new machine. Apart from running the risk of killing yourself or someone else by attempting repairs yourself, microwaves are basically a throw away item - regardless of the original price paid or a quality brand name.

(Note - there can still be very nasty voltages inside the machine even tho its turned OFF)

Microwave lights up plate turns something hums inside but the inside of the microwave never produces heat.

Sounds pretty normal but the inside is not supposed to get hot - only the food is.

Try heating a half glass of water for 1 minute if it gets hot... its working - if not then the actual microwave generating device inside has probably died.
In that case buy a new microwave oven as the cost of parts and labour to repair is usually more than cost of buying a new one.,

What would cause microwave to turn on but not heat up food?

A faulty Magnatron ( engine)

There is no separate fuse here. If there is no heat the magnatron has stopped working. re[pairs are almost not worth the effort due to cost of the unit and the labour. Easier to visit a pawn shop ands gewt a goood second hand recehecked on with a warranty for about $50-100 ( a fraction of the repair cost)

Hello Keith Sprague,

Spelling is close and your guess is quite excellent...

Before you ENGAGE in a wholesale repair effort...

You should check your machine is not in DEMO mode...

Demo Mode
Activate to practice using the control without actually turning on
the magnetron. Touch and hold number pad "3" for 3 seconds. The
"DEMO" icon will appear in the display. Repeat to exit Demo Mode

From page 3 (of your operators manual)
