Question about Panasonic NN-S560WF Microwave Oven

2 Answers

Microwave turns off after 4 seconds

After turning on the microwave, it shuts down 4-5 seconds later while making sounds as if trying to heat.  However, the sound is not normal as the pitch changes while the motor is turning.  
I read that possibly it may be a capacitor.  If so and you recommend testing mine, is this done with the power cord off.  Am I just testing for resistance?  I do have a VOM, but am not highly knowledgeable about what settings to use.
Thanks much,
David Farberow

In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer. You can find one here

If you try to heat something for a minute , the microwave will turn on for about 15 seconds then shut off . It doesn't even seem to warm the food.


It may need a reset. You can do that by unplugging the power for a minute or two, then plugging it back in and setting the clock.

If it still fails, you may have a failing cooling fan or a problem on the control circuit board.

Sounds like the inverter (power supply for cooking) or the magnatron which does the work----neither are cheap parts.

this sounds like the magentron may be going. have you had any issues with it not heating? check your warranty book, some mags have a 3-5 year warranty, otherwise it's probably not worth repairing.

The cooling fan is a must!

Otherwise, the magnetron will be ruined, and that drives up the repair cost.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Your magnetron is leaking and needs to be replaced.
