Question about Microwave Ovens
For the past few days my microwave is not functioning at all. When I switch it on the display dots are visible but the control panel is not working at all. However the light comes on when I open the door. If I disconnet the plug and leave it for a few hours and replug it, it works but now even that is not doing the trick.
I got my electrical connection checked up and there is no problem. I changed the 3 pin plug but even that didn't help.
More than likely the ovens control pad is defective, very expensive to repair, best to just get a new MW oven.

SOURCE: Microwave stopping working
In this one, the most likely causes are the inverter or magnetron, but it really will need an experienced troubleshooter. Due to the lethal voltages involved, I do not recommend that a person without training and experience ever work on these models. You should be able to locate a Panasonic-authorized servicer here: http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/WhereTo/FindServicer.asp?Pass=1 I would mention the exact symptom when you call so the technician can bring a new inverter with him when he comes out to repair it. Might save you having it pulled into the shop.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, but may instead be a loose door switch mount or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.

Tips for a great answer:
If the microwave runs for a few seconds and then shuts off, a door switch might have failed intermittently. Check each of the door switches for any signs of overheating, arcing, or burning. Also check each of them for continuity. Replace any of the switches that is visibly damaged or that only has continuity intermittently
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad and
control panel might be defective. There are several other components
that can cause this problem, be sure to check any other components
before replacing this board.
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be
at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the microwave
display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but
some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.
the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermostat might
be defective. Watch our video on testing thermostat
