It's likely a failed fuse or TCO (thermal cutout / thermostat)
Yours should have a "mini-manual" (technical sheet) hidden either behind the grille or control panel. It's very helpful in locating and testing components.
There is a video here here showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Accessing some components (especially the oven cavity thermostat) for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can find exploded views and installation instructions here and your can order Kitchenaid parts from The Pros here.

Change panasonic convection microwave from celcius to farenheit


If it is able to do that it will be explained in the owner manual.

Either call Panasonic customer service with that model number or Google the model with "manual" for the book.

Panasonic would be your best bet.

I havent used this microwave before. Can you please give me step by instructions on how to cook a roast beef and vegetables


If this microwave is a convection oven, you don't give make or model, treat as a fan assisted oven. 20 minutes per pound and 20 minutes extra for the meat, veg is best microwaved for a few minutes except potatoes, put them in the dish with the meat. Cover to stop splashing and set temperature to 190 Celcius 370 in proper temperature.
I am getting hungry now!
Enjoy.

I have Whirlpool FT338 combi microwave/oven. It takes 4 minutes to boil half a pint of water.This is a replacement model, as we returned the first one thinking it was faulty. Not sure what to do now


Measure out 1/2 litre of water and place it in a pyrex or plastic container. Take a temperature measurement. Say 15degrees Celcius.
Place microwave on full power for 1minute.
The temperature rise of the water should be at least 10 degree Celcius. Say 25degrees Celcius.
If it is, the magnetron is producing aproximately 720Watts of power and acceptable, any higher and a bonus!

My microwave suddenly stopped heating. . .what could be the problem?


If everything works, but the microwave oven does not heat, this is commonly caused by a failed magnetron. The magnetron is essentially, the heart of the oven that produces the RF energy that is used to heat your food. In order to replace a defective magnetron, you will need to consider the following:

1. You will need to uninstall the oven from over the range in order to replace the part (you will need to do this anyway, if you decide to buy a replacement oven).

2. Ensure the oven is UNPLUGGED before servicing anything inside the cabinet and remove the exterior case in order to access the magnetron. There are several websites that you can use that illustrate how the oven is assembled:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com appliancepartspros.com
NOTE: If you've never repaired an appliance on your own before, a microwave oven is usually not a recommended appliance to start with. Some models can be rather involved in taking apart.

3. The magnetron replacement part number for the model you have listed is WB27X10305. The average cost is about $80.
NOTE: I found the part listed for the best price at appliancepartspros.com at a cost of $76. This model also has a thermostat (bi-metal) that if tripped, will also cause the oven not to heat. The thermostat acts as a fuse if the magnetron overheats. The part number is WB27X10788. You will need to remove the thermostat from the oven and take a resistance check across the component terminals to determine if it is good or not. A low resistance reading indicates a good thermostat. An infinite reading, indicates a blown thermostat and needs to be replaced. The average replacement cost is about $10.
Review the parts illustrations at the recommended websites to see if this is something that you may be able easily take apart and reassemble.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

CAUTION: DO NOT operate a microwave oven with the exterior cover off. The voltage inside the High Voltage network where the magnetron is installed can exceed 3,000 volts!

Sylvania microwave convection oven overheats after


you need to remove the cover and after it operates and shuts down(CAREFULLY) feel the magnetron tube sides (BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL<HI_VOLTAGE ON TUBE FROM CAPACITOR) still, then if its not too warm there is a small temp sensor held by 2 screws on the side of the tube and they can go bad and shut off current to the tube,the tube will run warm, but should never run HOT,if its hot its defective
