Question about Microwave Ovens
Symptom: above model stays on for 3 seconds, shuts off and emits bad smell like burning plastic. Has since been unplugged and tried at another outlet-same result. Is it D.O.A.?
In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter but it may be a bad magnetron.
Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.
I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer. You can find one here:

Clock is set by pushing "clock". entering time on number pad, and touching "clock" again. This should do it.
