SOURCE: the microwave starts, then stops 2 seconds later

I tried a solution posted on another posting http://www.fixya.com/support/t242480-stops_cooking by placing the conductive plastic behind the control panel and it worked.

You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.

SOURCE: Microwave Oven Does Not Start Cooking

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you don't find yours, or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can download it here.

If yours is not shown at the parts site or manual site linked above, Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

How to set the clock Model NN-SA651S


To set the clock, press Timer/Clock twice when the microwave is not in use. The colon between the hour and minutes should start to blink. Type the current time (12-hour clock) with the appropriate number key pads. To save the time and exit the clock set mode, press Timer/Clock once more. Note: if you take too long to begin typing the time, the microwave may exit the time set mode. In that case, the colon will stop blinking. None of the other features of the microwave will work when the colon is blinking.

This is shown on page 11 of the manual which is available on the Panasonic NN-SA651S support page: http://shop.panasonic.com/support-only/NN-SA651S.html . The direct link to the manual is currently ftp://ftp.panasonic.com/microwaveoven/om/nn-sa631_nn-sa651_nn-sa661_en_om.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Oster microwave isnt heating. i press time to cook and the timer just starts going never actually turns on to cook


Typical reasons include bad diode (most use) bad AC filter cap, Bad inverter and or Magnetron.

All require opening unit and the filter and diode can be tested by use of a meter but the inverter and Magnetron usually have to be replaced to know.
If not able to open and look for these parts and test--consider having a shop take a look and get a estimate.

Oster 1.1 cu. ft. Stainless Steel Combination Microwave Grill - OMW1199


After six months I just figured it out. Push the cook by weight button in and hold it until the clock function comes on. Turn left for hour and right for minute. Figured this out by holding the cancel button in and a child lock came on, I didn't know how to release it so I reversed the process by holding it in and it cleared. I tried it with the cook by weight, which has a small clock icon next to it and voilla.
