Powers off immediately after starting


My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

OUR AMANA Radarange. Has there been anyother complants on this unit. Any help would be appreciated. Any sugestions on whats wrong? If we try to use the microwave for more than 1 minute it shuts down in...


Hello,

the unit has developed a power fault. This issue is related to a power problem in as much as the unit turns off on it's own.

The problem is consistent with overheating on the power supply board of the unit.

The power supply board of the TV has few capacitors and IC. If any of these IC's gets short or become weak, it can cause the unit to turn off on it's own.

When current passes from electric outlet to the power supply board of unit. The current also goes to the weak/faulty part, then the current stops or slow and the board overheats and unit shuts off on it's own.

It might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby making it to behave this way.


To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter and continuity tester in order to read the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store withing our vicinity. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Regards.

Microwave (Panasonic NN-S254BF) starts, runs 2-3 seconds, and then shuts off. I have checked the door latch switches, and they are all working like they are supposed to. Whats wrong?


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.
