Question about Panasonic NN-C980 Convection/Microwave Oven
Panasonic NN-C980B stopped working. Opened top panel and discovered the 18A special fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse and tried it again, but it blew the fuse again. What are the possible causes?
Sometimes when the mag shorts it takes out the inverter. I would measure the mag leads to ground and they should be open or 20M or so. If you have both a mag and inverter bad it's probably time for a new oven.

It sounds like the magnetron may have
either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high
voltage required to run it.
SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT
This is a job for a professional but if
you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
If it is the type with an "Invertor", they are not user serviceable and must be repaired by an authorised Panasonic agent for continued safety, otherwise if conventional;
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
