    I have intermittent cooking problems


    This link may help u

    Many over-the-range microwave ovens suffer from intermittent problems caused by excessive moisture from the range/stove entering the microwave cabinet and collecting on the circuitry. Often the problem is with one or two simple connections that may need tightening or soldering. But, to repair these components, the microwave cabinet needs to be opened. So we recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

    A solution given by somebody and had result.

    "behind the control panel mounted on the bottom plate is a temp sensor that read 120. I jumped that sensor and the problem resolved. I replaced the sensor and have had no problem since"

Microwave stops mid cycle


If it stops at 16 seconds and is a sensor model, it probably has a defective humidity sensor.

If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually a problem with the inverter, controller, magnetron, or a bad connection from one or the other.

Microwave starts as normanl but cuts out after 5 seconds on all settings?


sounds as either inverter or magnetron is faulty difficult to diagnose although when mag fault usually runs for about 22 secs inverter fails sooner around 5 secs.

Microwave stops after 22 seconds


Not sure what the problem is but I have exactly the same fault with mine. Apparently it's either going to be the inverter, the magatron or both. Cost approx £120 inc callout.

My advice: Get a new one!

The oven stops partway into the set time, and doesn't heat.


If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually a problem with the inverter, controller, magnetron, or a bad connection from one or the other. Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these. You can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.

Shuts off but everything else works


If the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle.

If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually 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.

Shuts Off after 22 seconds


Time to buy a new microwave as it sounds as if the control panel is defective. A new control panel for this micro will run about 95 to 120 bucks + labor depending on where you buy it. I happen to like slightly burnt popcorn as well!! Nothing wrong with thats, as they say great minds think alike.
