Try a "hard restart", which simply means unplugging the microwave, and replugging it after one minute has passed. This technique reprograms the electronics, to a certain extent.
Hope this suggestion works for you.

Panasonic Genius Microwave runs for 30 secs or so, then shuts off.


test this components and fix it. God bless you

  1. Main control boardIf your microwave runs for a few seconds and stops, the first thing to check is the main control board to ensure that a shortage has not occurred. If the part is defective then it will need to be replaced to prevent continual shut offs. If this is not the issue, the next step would be to check for a faulty touchpad.
  2. Touchpad/Control panelIf the control board is not the issue and your microwave continues to shut off after running for only a few seconds, the next thing to check is your touchpad, which is also known as a control panel. Although uncommon for this issue, symptoms are usually that the display and some buttons are working properly; however, when selected some buttons are not functioning. If this is the case the touchpad will need to be replaced.

Ge pvm2070smss shuts down


It may be a noisy magnetron if the failure occurs in a second or two of hitting "Start" to begin cooking.

See this FixYa solution. even though your model number is different.

Otherwise, if the internal cooling fan is not running when you are cooking, it will shut down after 30-60 seconds or so and stay off until it cools back down.

It may be turning off because it is not heating, does it have the lights inside and the turntable both working?

My Bosch microwave (built in HMB5050 has stopped heating all of a sudden. Everything else appears to work fine but it does not heat. What is the problem?


I have the same issue, plus mine shuts down after 30 seconds. There are a few other similar issues on here, with solutions including unplugging it for 10 seconds, replacing a fuse, and replacing half the internals. Please post your fix if you find one!

My microwave runs for 30 seconds and stops


It could be shutting off because of the heat sensor on the magnatron is over heating because of a bad capacitor or diode or the power transformer its self. This is a call for the service man BUT you know these days a microwave like this cost a couple of hundred bucks maybe a little more too. But it will possibly cost 150 or so if not more to fix the average microwave. If you really like it, then see if you can have it estimated BUT its not for the handy man to try to trouble shoot as theres extremly high voltage in these puppys even when they are not plugged in!! Good luck
