Question about Panasonic NN-S950BA Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Turning off before finishing time time cycle

Unit will run for about minute, minute and half then turn off. Doesn't matter what power it is set to. Doesn't matter if you use "Quick Min". Tried to replace Magnetron from known working NN S933BF still did same thing. Are the two Magnetron tubes compatible? Had this problem with the NN S933BF and it was the Magnetron.

There may be a problem with the Oven Control, or the associated wiring.

Power unit down by turning off the circuit breaker(s) for one (1) minute.

Monitor the oven for one (1) minute to ensure the error code does not display again.

Verify oven operation.

Powers off immediately after starting

My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

Rational selfcook oven say service 21

Service 21 refers to your humidity control valve (climavalve) did not make a full revolution in the time allotted (about 20 seconds). Pop open the front control panel by inserting and turning a 5mm allen key into the opening on the top of the oven. While the oven is at the home screen, flip the dip switch #1 on the back of the control board to the up or on position. On the screen you should now see a new icon resembling some tools, like a wrench and screwdriver, click this icon. Go to Basic Settings and scroll to the right once until you come to Basic Settings 1.2. It should say drain valve and flap with some numbers at the bottom. F-t is the number we want to focus on, take notice of the number there, usually 18-20 seconds. Push the start button to the right of flap, this time will change to 0 while the flap is re-initializing. After 20 seconds or so a new number should come up, if it doesn't or it is over 20 seconds by a lot then you need to replace your humidity control valve.

Additionally every time you turn on your oven the climavalve will cycle, checking to make sure it is working correctly, if you interrupt this cycle by powering off the oven you can simulate this error falsly, to rectify the error turn off the oven and turn it back on and wait a good minute for all of the self testing components to finish their checks.

Emerson microwave not working 900 watts

The Emerson MW8999SB 0.9 cu. ft. 900 watt Microwave Oven is relatively compact, and certainly inexpensive, but doesn't skimp on functionality. We were surprised at all the options you get with this little microwave. It's only 20 inches wide, 11.3 inches high and 16.1 inches deep yet. The interior can still accommodate a regular size dinner plate or small (10-inch-square or round) casserole. Plus, there are 10 power levels, eight one-touch function buttons, six Express Cook settings, timed and automatic defrost options, and a rotating glass turntable to circulate the food for more even cooking.

We were very pleased with the performance of the Emerson MW8999SB. It did a fine job heating water for tea, cooking a couple of baked potatoes, reheating leftovers and steaming fresh vegetables. Even the automatic defrost proved surprisingly efficient, letting you enter the weight of the item(s) to be defrosted (4-100 ounces) for easy operation. Chicken breasts were almost fully defrosted after one cycle. We needed to stop and separate the food pieces to finish the defrost cycle.

The unit is styled mainly in black but has stainless steel trim around the door and control panel. The smooth touchpad control panel is attractive and easy to wipe clean. We loved the one-touch Express Cook buttons, which let you activate the unit at 100 percent power for 1-6 minutes, by pressing the corresponding number pad. We also appreciated extra touches such as the Start/+30 sec. button, which can be used to start the oven or add an extra 30 seconds each time it is depressed.

It's hard to go wrong when the functions are so simple. The only tricky part was identifying certain codes used on the display screen. When changing the power level, for instance, PL10 is displayed on the screen. Pressing the button additional times lets you toggle through the different levels. Likewise, the Auto Cook settings may need to be pressed multiple times to obtain the correct weight or portion for the food being cooked.

We were amazed that a machine costing so little also offered two-stage cooking, which lets you start cooking (or defrosting) on one setting and finish on another. All in all, the Emerson MW8999SB is an excellent value.

Pros: Touchpad controls, eight one-touch function buttons, six Express Cook settings, two-stage coking option
Cons: Limited interior capacity can only accommodate dishes up to 10 inches, no sensor

I have a sharp 850 watt micro convection in my motorhome and it just started acting up.It only wants to run for 1.5 minutes no matter what I set the time for and on any setting.Can you tell my why ? It...

It is doing this because it is sensing a "Fault" condition and is shutting down, probably a power Supply issue. I suggest you take the unit to a reputable repair centre and ask for a "Quote". Be careful tho often the cost of repair may outweigh a replacement cost.

Tappan TMV151FS over range microwave starts to work and then dies

Never run the microwave without a load (something to heat)!!! That kills the microwave generating parts.

Sounds like a 'thermal' protect switch is activating after running. Make sure that (if the unit is mounted in a cabinet) that there is sufficient space around the unit for proper air flow and that nothing is blocking the vents. Try setting it on a counter top and heat something. If it works properly and doesn't shut off, the venting space is the problem. You may have to have the cabinet that it sits in redesigned for more clearance.

Door switch went out- second time in two and a half years.

sounds like the door switch has been used to stop the unit while heating instead of using the stop button.

No numbered touch pad for use setting clock

I think on this one you press the CLOCK/TIMER pad, then enter the desired time using the 10 MINUTES, 1 MINUTE, AND 15 SECONDS pads then press CLOCK/TIMER again.

If that doesn;t work, press STOP / CLEAR then try the above again.

Let us know if it does not work.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Total power loss during use

Check the voltage on the outlet,make sure it is 115v -- 122volts max, any less will cause it shut off, make sure the polarity off the outlet is correct and it is grounded,check all of your wiring connections, if all this is ok replace unit with a different unit or different supplier of unit
