Question about Panasonic NN-S251 Microwave Oven
I have a Panasonic NN-2501 (yes it says 2501) and just as the unit was finishing heating supper there was a loud buzz and then it shut off. The digital display was off and the range hood fan came on. I unplugged it and plugged it back in and the fan came on and no response from the control panel, not lights or anything. Was the buzz my magnetron going bad? it was built in March 1993. It is 13.0 amps so it is a 1500 watt machine apparently.
At that age, a magnetron failure would not surprise me, but I looking at the service manual, the only way the hood fan could be on is if its relay on the control board is on.
I would bet you have a problem on the control board.
I can help with that, but please feel free to contact me directly through our site link via our Fixya link at http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
