Question about Panasonic NN-S563 Microwave Oven

Touch pad works but microwave doesn't turn on

The touch pad on my Panasonic NN-S563 turns on and the seconds count down, but the oven doesn't turn on to heat the food.  Could the unit have overheated and froze?

Re: Touch pad works but microwave doesn't turn on

NO the microwave doesn' t overheat or froze.
I couldn't answer to your question 100% because I don't know this model,
Some microwave don't heat if you don't set the heating temputer on, the power level. I've seen lot's of customer in the past couldn't get heat because all they press was time and didn't set the heat level.
second it is posible it doesn't heat because the magnetron power supply is burt out, this is the electronic board inside the unit below the magnetron, panasonic or know for burning this board to often, if it was I, they would have been design to inposible to blow them . Microwave have gone a long way and notice that the quality is not there no more. The old once or the same thing as the new once's but made more of plastic. The parts (main parts) or all the same design but mad to brake down after a shorter time. The older model lasted a minimum of 20 years, today they have the same magnetron but they don't last as long as before, made to brake. If they brake faster, the re sale or higher so more money to make.
To me it's just insulting to think that way, vehicule or the same , the repeat parts sales make profit go higher. It's all a tratege to make money faster and not respecting the consumer.
Third problem you may have is the magnetron is shut or the cap.
You would need a tech to tell you that part.


ps do what 99% think like trough it out, but make shure you understand you're creating polution everytime.

PANASONIC Microwave Inverter #NN-SD697S. Everything works except the START button. Works sometimes, and not other times. Checked outlet, all was good.

This is either the door sensing switch (most likely) or a bad membrane switch [start switch] (that's what Panasonic calls it) on the touch pad. The contacts on the door sensing switch can be slightly contaminated and not read "zero ohms" to the control PCB. The control board thinks that the door is open and it will not allow the cook cycle to start.

Nn-ct559 Very noisy when used on convection.

It appears you have a bad batch in that group, take it back and let them deal with this, and I would consider taking your money back or go with a different brand and model.

The clock works & counts down but the microwave won't heat

  • Disconnect the power for 30 seconds. After restoring power, do not set the clock.
  • If your model has an ON/OFF clock display, you can choose not to have the time displayed. To choose this option, press the 0 pad for about three seconds. To Turn the display back on, press the 0 again.

Touch the clock pad. Enter in the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence. Touch the clock pad again.
