Question about Panasonic Microwave Ovens

Open Question

Panasonic Microwave model NN-L526BA Works great most of the time, generally when I need to warm up my coffee or my dinner the only button that responds on the number pad is the reset button (it beeps when you touch it) the rest of the buttons are dead. After awhile it will start working again just as great as before, then it seizes again usually two or three times a day I get so annoyed that I wanna hit it with a baseball bat, so what gives??

I would say either the high voltage transformer or a component on the inverter board has failed.

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.

SOURCE: Sharp R-1450 microwave

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

On these, it's usually a broken tab on the upper switch holder.

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.

That sounds like what's happening when you hold the Start pad - maybe you're moving the frame and chassis enough to help it work.

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.

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.

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 probably find exploded views and order parts by entering your model number here at the Sears parts site.

The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

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

SOURCE: After pressing the TIME button, the number pad does not react.

A hard reset, that is, removing the unit from the electric source and restarting it after a few seconds, solved the problem.

If you must warm a slice of pizza or a pat of butter

PANASONIC Microwave Inverter #NN-SD697S. Everything works except the START button. Works sometimes, and not other times. Checked outlet, all was good.


This is either the door sensing switch (most likely) or a bad membrane switch [start switch] (that's what Panasonic calls it) on the touch pad. The contacts on the door sensing switch can be slightly contaminated and not read "zero ohms" to the control PCB. The control board thinks that the door is open and it will not allow the cook cycle to start.

I have a Panasonic Model #NN-S255 microwave oven. The button you push to open the door does not open the door. It's like there is no resistance when you push the button therefore it does not push up...


Hello,To get the door open and salvage your dinner, take a long thin blade ( I used a frosting spreader) and insert from the bottom between the door and the oven frame on the side with the latches (usually next to the control panel). You may have to pry the bottom of the door open just a bit. The object is to push up the lower door latch (which is connected to the upper door latch) and manually open the door. You may have to try a few times but this worked perfectly for me and saved dinner. Obviously the door latch needs to be repaired but this solves the immediate problem of dinner being held hostage by a recalcitrant microwave.
wish you good luck,
take care.

Panasonic microwave ovens touch pad is not functioning in winters. But works well on a warm day. Do I need to clean out something specific?


That sounds like a condensation problem as when the microwave is cold the warm air from the kitchen that is laden with moisture is condensing and upsetting the control panel.
Keep it warm and dry? There is nothing specific though.

My NN-T695 Panasonic microwave oven starts up for two seconds then cuts out before doing any warming?


I'm having the same problem with the same model microwave. It has taken hard use for a long time, but now it will (sometimes) start and then stop after a second or two. I think it's a loose connection, because a couple of times I got it to work by rapping on the back or side.

Our microwave oven Panasonic NN-S252WF stops after


Our technician suggest that there may be a problem with the Inverter Board in this model, which is something that would need to be looked at by a Service Center.

In rare cases it could be the door switches.

Re: Overheat Microwave or...?


Magnetron (supplies microwave radiation [energy]) or any of the high voltage components internally. More than likely, the HV (high voltage) diode has burned out and is probably cheaper to purchase a new one than have someone repair it unless they can do it for free or you simply pay for the part.
