Sounds like the microwave unit (magnatron) has failed. This will happen if the microwave has ever been used without anything in there to absorb the energy. It basically cooks itself.

Unless you are particularly fond of this unit, it is usually cheaper to buy a replacement than order parts and repair.

You could phone a few local repair centres and ask for a quote , but weigh this against the next thing likely to fail.

Worth repairing industrial models, not really worth repair to domestic models.

Hope this helps you.

My panasonic NN-8500 microwave/convection oven the microwave part is working fine but,the convection grill defrost is not


Possibly the defrost heater element has failed. You will need to strip the cabinet off and use a multimeter to test the element. May also be the overtemp safety thermostat may have failed.

Panasonic Inverter combination microwave/convection unit. Microwave barely working, convection ok, problem part?


your issue sounds like low output from the magnetron, if this is the case replacement of the magnetron is the only solution, Here's a link for magnetrons on Amazon to give you an idea of the expense involved:

you may decide to replace the microwave instead of repairing.

Hi Michael,

i think something wrong with its high-tension circuit or your magnitron is bad.
the minor fault is open of therm stat for protection.
or burnt fuse in circuit.

Panasonic dimension 4 microwave/convection oven Micvrowave part of oven not working, convection oven/grill fine. Is it a problem with the magnetron? Is there some form of internal fuse?


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Smeg fmc24x oven and grill work turntable and microwave dont


I have a simular model and I found that the circuit board has three black relays, one for the grill one for the convection and one for the microwave. I found that the microwave one wasnt working so by swaping the microwave one with the convection one I got it to work and then replaced the faulty one with a new one at a later date.

Panasonic Microwave NN-A770S getting hot on right side externally


If you described this to Panasonic very carefully, and they said it's normal, then I would say keep using it until such time that you get other symptoms. The inverter has some parts mounted on a large chunk of aluminum called a heat sink. It draws the heat out of the parts and the heat radiates and/or convects away. This keeps the circuit parts from overheating. As long as you have good air flow through the vents, it sounds okay.
