The microwave was working fine until today. I tryed to heat up something and it ran for about 1 minute and and shut off causing my fuse box to trip off. The unplug the microwave and turned the fuse box to the on position and then replugged the microwave and now it is not coming on at all.
I have a Panasonic Inverter 1100watt Microwave, only 12mths old. has been working like a dream. Today it stopped heating, and shuts down after exactly 30secs of use. Angie

The drawer often stops working when it is abruptly stopped while
opening and forced closed or vice-versa. To fix, simply do the
following: 1) Push the draw all the way closed 2) Push the "Setup" button repeatedly until the "Open/Close ...?" appears. 3) Hold the Start Button until the time reappears in the display. 4) Repeat steps 2 & 3 three more times 5) Unplug the Microwave for 30 minutes. The
drawer is now reset. The drawer will now open electronically
(automatically) either by pushing the open button on the panel or by
pulling the drawer handle slightly.
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.
In this one, the most likely causes are the inverter or magnetron, but it really will need an experienced troubleshooter.
Due to the lethal voltages involved, I do not recommend that a person without training and experience ever work on these models.
You should be able to locate a Panasonic-authorized servicer here:
I would mention the exact symptom when you call so the technician can bring a new inverter with him when he comes out to repair it. Might save you having it pulled into the shop.
