SOURCE: Panasonic microwave does not work for more than 3 secs.

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.

That 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 them.

SOURCE: microwave oven will not start after I put in the time. It says open and close door and press start. Still won't start

Probably a bad door switch or mount. The door switch help file is here.

On some models though (you didn't mention yours) the door circuit is very complicated, and may be showing the door error due to a blown fuse or cavity TCO.

Accessing the cavity TCO for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

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 download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

The drawing below shows what to check:

How do I unlock the child lock on my Panasonic Genius Microwave?


March 2009 press the function key,select option #5, select option#2. This should take it out of child lock. If this doesn't work enclose your model number and I will try to look up the manual


Or, press "Cancel" three times to clear the (child) lock.
You set the lock by pressing "Start" three times.

There is a child lock on our Panasonic Inverter 1200w microwave, but don't know how to unlock it. Can you help me?


In my "Panasonic Junior Smart" microwave it's 3 times START to lock and 3 times CANCEL to unlock. Try if that works for your model.

To disable this feature on my microwave the manual says to

Check your manual for the Child Lock.

My microwave says "child" and won't play anymore


Not sure of the TT series models but for the NN series models the procedure is as follows:-

If "Child" is displayed in the display window, then the child safety lock is on.

To remove the child safey lock, press the "Stop/Reset" button 3 times in fairly short succession (less than 3 seconds). The time of day or just the Colon sign (:) is then displayed

If you later want to apply the Child safety lock, then, when the time of day (or colon sign) is displayed, press "Start" 3 times (again in short succession).

Hope this helps

Usually you press Start 3 times to turn the child lock on, and press Stop/Reset 3 times to turn it off.

If that doesn't work, you can probably unplug it for a couple of minutes, then reset the clock.
