    blew a capacitor on the inverter board, decided not to repair it just in case the problem cascades due to the age of the unit. It had survived daily use for eight years!, We called Sears as they assume the warranty for items they sell and WOW they offered a deal on a new unit even though the warranty had long expired.

    Our new microvave is back ordered... but with a 100.00 discount we can wait a week or two!



    anybody need a magnitron? I pulled it and a few other parts!

Is it by chance running only 22 seconds before it shuts down?

The 22 seconds is the giveaway. In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

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. You can find one here.

Microwave stops mid cycle


If it stops at 16 seconds and is a sensor model, it probably has a defective humidity sensor.

If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually a problem with the inverter, controller, magnetron, or a bad connection from one or the other.

NN-T774 INVERTER STOPPED WORKING AFTER 4 WEEKS


Check to make sure one of the plastic hooks on the door was not broken off. If both door hook latches are functional then the most likely cause of your problem is one of the latch switches located behind the control panel. These switches will fail if the oven user opens the door frequently BEFORE the cook cycle ends. Always push STOP/RESET before opening any microwave oven door.

Oven shuts off on cook after about 2 seconds


If the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle.

It may be a loose connection in the wiring between the inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of those components has failed.


Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do
not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.


You can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.

Your actual model number is located on a tag around the control panel frame, door or below the cooking cavity.

Operates for 3 seconds on microwave then stops


If the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle.

It could possibly be as simple as a loose connection in that area. The repair shop your friend used may not have been Panasonic-authorized.

Panasonic NN-H264SF now requires holding a control panael to operate


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

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.

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: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

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