Question about Panasonic Microwave Ovens
My wife has 1250 genius sensor 1250 microwave that's 6 months old. Won't cook a sweet potato. I have an older Panasonic 1250 model, and it works just fine except door hinge failing and must open and close manually.

Your membrane keypad has probably failed.
If you might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
It's at http://www.microwavedisplay.com/keypad_replacement.pdf
We have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Essentially you unplug the oven from the wall outlet, and remove the control panel assembly as per the instructions at the site linked above.
(Remove the grille from across the top, remove the top screw in the control panel frame, then lift up & out).
There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille.
Then unplug the keypad from the circuit board, heat up the keypad from the front with a hair dryer, then peel the old keypad off.
You have to make sure all the old adhesive is off or the new keypad will not stick.
I use paint thinner or mineral spirits, then follow up with isopropyl alcohol to be sure the panel face is squeaky clean and dry.
Then peel the backing paper from the new keypad and carefully press the new keypad in place.
You need to be precise - you cannot apply it, peel it off, then reapply it.
If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.
Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

Please contact your home insurance to have the problem logged as a failure of the microwave. The insurance company will most likely help you with the smoke damage to the house and will contact the manufacturer to get their money back... there might be an issue with the manufacturing of these appliances.

REMOVE THE CABINET AND IT SHOULD BE CLOSE TO THE POWER INLET ON THE MOTHERBOARD IT LOOKS LIKE THE OLD GLASS TYE FUSE BUT MADE OF CERAMIC.

yes, at the back of the microwave there are 4 or 6 screws, take them out and then pull the cover follow the cable( the one you connect to the outlet) going to the inside of the microwave inside you will see the fuse change it with the same size, it is a slow burn fuse

SOURCE: microwave door wont stay closed
replace the door hooks and door release button.
if this is broken the switch will not close very well, and NOT start the microwave.
God bless you
