Question about Panasonic NN-S561 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

What cause the wattage difference?

Have 2 panasonic microwaves: NN-S532 and NN-S542. I want to use 1 to repair the other. 1 is 1200W. The other 1300W. Same Invertor board & Magnetron part numbers. So what make the wattage different?

    SHARCNET: The fans and all components are the same, except the keypads! They are different and have a few small components onboard that probably do, as you said, make a higher power selection on the 1300 W unit, that the 1200 W keypad does not offer. Like AMD does with one cpu design sometimes. They leave a bridge open on one and closed on another and sell it as two different power models. Thanks!!

Wattage is based upon voltage & current. I would think that on the 1300W unit, either the voltage or the current is higher than that which is used on the 1200W unit.

Perhaps the magnetron in the 1300W unit is being driven harder. Are the fans the same size?, The magnetron in the 1300W could be running harder and they have a larger fan in it.

In any event, if the part numbers are the same, you should have no trouble using one units parts to fix the other.

Good luck!

My Panasonic 1300w microwave will not turn off. It doesn't cook but won't turn off without actually unplugging it or opening the door and leaving it open. Any help?


You may have a shorted door switch or a shorted relay on the control board.

You can see a help file on door switches here.

Panasonic genious sensor inverter 1300w nn-t664sfx displays code "h98" & will not run - what's the problem?


Mine did this once and it was the magnetron. Once replaced, it worked fine. Repair is an option if it is still under warranty or someone will do it on the cheap. Otherwise, just get a new microwave, since this is the main part.

Microwave turns off by itself after being on for 3 seconds


See if this describes what's happening:
  • Put in time, push start and unit runs for 2 seconds, relay clicks, unit goes off. Cook time on display goes off and clock time comes back. Bad upper interlock switch and charred connector
If so, see http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt and
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

Otherwise, if the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle.

It may be a loose connection in the wiring between the inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of those components has failed.


Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.
