Question about Microwave Ovens
I hava a Panasonic Genius 1200W over the range microwave that when you try to us it it will stop - cut off aftr 5 seconds. What could be causing this problem?
H97, H98 or H99 mean that there's a problem with your inverter, magnetron, or digital programming circuit.
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.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

So we can help you, please post a NEW FixYa inquiry which includes your full model number from the tag on the unit, and the answer to these questions:
Is it dead? (meaning no display, no beeps when you press a pad on the keypad and the inside light does not come on when you open the door)
Is it running but not heating?
Any usual noises?
Does it shut off after a few seconds when you try to cook with it?
Of so, exactly how many seconds?
Are there any error codes on the display?
Also, if you;re not in the US, which country are you in?

This is most likely because of a faulty interlock monitor switch, operated by the door latch. If it thinks you're running the oven with the door open it will cause the fuse to blow (or trip a circuit breaker in your case). The switch may be bad (not opening as it should when the door is closed) or out of adjustment.
The switch is replaceable and it's not a costly part. You should have microwave service done by a professional, especially if it involves the door. There are potentially lethal voltages present with the cover off, and the possibility of microwave leakage is the repairs aren't dome properly.
Hope this gets you cooking again. Thanks for using Fixya!
