SOURCE: Microwave runs for 3 seconds and shuts off

This is an inverter-driven model, and this is one way the inverter fails. Often it will tick, too, but the cooling fan may be too loud to hear ticking. If you haven't had smoke, then it may not yet catastrophic. I would bet that a thorough resoldering would take care of it. A good technician can troubleshoot and repair this, as needed, but often they will just replace the inverter. Sometimes that's actually cheaper. Troubleshooting an inverter is way too much for someone without good solid technical experience. I would call a shop and ask for an estimate to replace the inverter. Good luck.

SOURCE: Another Microwave that shuts down after 3 seconds of microwave operation

This model uses an inverter to produce high voltage. That symptom is an usually indication of a problem with the inverter. Due to the lethal voltages involved, I do not recommend that a person without training and experience ever work on these models. And of course at less than 1 year, this would still be under warranty if you have your sales receipt. You should be able to locate a Panasonic-authorized servicer here: http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/WhereTo/FindServicer.asp?Pass=1 I would mention the exact symptom when you call so the technician can bring a new inverter with him when he comes out to repair it. Might save you having it pulled into the shop. Good luck!

SOURCE: Microwave turns off by itself after being on for 3 seconds

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 and
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.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.

SOURCE: During cooking, the microwave will work for about

sounds like the cooling fan has came adrift or stopped working , this will cause the magnatron ( the microwave generator ) to overheat tripping the over temperature stat ,so fix the cooling , but be sooooooooooooo carefull in there , microwaves + really high voltages , not really a job for a non electrician/microwave tech

Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove


see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    Oven accidentally operated without any contents and cut out with a smell of burning. Subsequently the oven only runs for approximately 22 seconds before stopping. Any ideas?


    It will require a new magnetron and possibly power supply for it. The magnetron will destroy itself if it has nowhere for the energy to go.

    My Panasonic Microwave NN-T573SBBPQ cuts out after 3 seconds. what can I do? Or am I better of replacing it?


    This sounds like a magnetron problem, if it gets to hot, there is a special thermal fuse that will open up if it senses abnormal temperature rise from the magnetron and after a cool down period it will reset itself. In rare cases I have known the thermal fuse to become defective and cut out prematurely. My feeling is replace the oven! because by the time you get a appliance repairman in for a sevice call and parts you probably could have bought a new microwave oven.

    Start button intermittent eg press many times (maybe 20) to start


    Problem identified as plastic pushbutton on control panel, solution: interchanged with turntable on/off button (nevrer used). Had paid Miele €115 call out (for person who knew nothing about microwaves), Miele operate a closed shop. Local repair service say Miele will not supply parts, Miele designated repair agent will not repair microwaves, Miele will only send "engineer" to customer, no drop off facility. Was forced into buying new microwave oven from Miele as only way of recouping callout charge. Subsequently had a go myself with above positive positive result - now have a spare microwave cooker.

    Microwave turns itself off after a couple of seconds


    Q - My microwave seems to shut off every once in a while, what might be wrong?
    A - Make sure you hear the fan is still operating in your microwave. Next is to make sure the air intake grill on your microwave is not plugged up with air borne dust and dirt.
    Q - The fan in my microwave oven is not running will this hurt my microwave?
    A - YES, the fan cools the magnetron and electronics, take the microwave in for service, most fans are not too expensive to replace.
    Q - My microwave blows the fuse inside itself as soon as I push the start button.
    A - Usually a shorted high voltage capacitor...see components section.
