Question about Panasonic NN-H264 Microwave Oven
Our 3 yo microwave started acting strange. Once the program is set and start is pushed the light would come on and the fan too, but turntable would stay still, no heating would occur and in 3 seconds it would shut down without beeping. Once some light pressure is applied to control panel bottom in and up it would operate quite normally, and once it starts cooking you can release the panel, it would keep operating.
Call to Panasonic service resulted in gibberish answer. It appears there is some loose contact somewhere, but the guy kept talking about a "control board" being burnt. No holding would help if the board was fried.
Any advise if it can be repaired on my own?
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.
Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.
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: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
