Question about Panasonic NN-S254BF Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Panasonic NN-S254B How fried is it?

Earlier this year I cut a tree down and it fell on the power line yanking the neutral wire from the mast at my summer cottage.
Consequently my whole cottage had two hots and no neutral. I fried a Satellite receiver, clock radio, cordless phones and my Panasonic Over the Range NN254 Microwave.
Oddly the TV survived.

There is power to the receptacle that the microwave is plugged into but there is absolutely no sign of life in the microwave when I plug it in.

Do you think this is just a fuse or is the whole unit junk?

I can buy a new microwave for $200

The microwave is 100 miles from me right now

There is an internal fuse, so check that first. If the fuse checks ok, definitely buy a new microwave - losing a neutral usually damages the main circuit board. Given the cost of the board and the distance involved, it just wouldn't pay to chase the parts down

Panasonic NN-SN960S, turntable won't stop spinning. Have to unplug after every use. What kind of repair does it need and how much would it cost?


May be a door switch problem, or may be a control board problem. You might even have a shorted wire that goes to the turntable motor. (I have seen 1 of the wires get pinched and cut by metal guards or guides that were meant to keep the wires in place.) You can remove the screws from the bottom of the microwave oven, and drop the bottom panel down to checked for pinched wires. Unplug the microwave first before you do that.

I want to change the light in my microwave. Panasonic nn-p704sw. I took apart the covr and foung the light attached to a plastic scockrt. I tried to unscrew but the bulb was tight. should i apply more...


Typically the bulb will unscrew from the socket. If you can remove the bulb and socket with the wire from the microwave (wire hanging from the microwave) you might be able to get more pressure on the bulb to turn it. Keep in mind that the bulb may have been in the oven for several years and there may be a build of grease on the treads of the bulb so it could be really stuck. Put a cloth towel around the bulb and wear gloves so you don't cut your hand if the bulb were to shatter.

No power to the unit, fuse tested fine, outlet is working


Sorry, but your subject line got cut off.

Assuming the outlet is fine, it may be a thermal cutout / thermostat on the magnetron or on top of the cavity.

The best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.
