I'm guessing it's a Panasonic inverter model?(If not, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you).

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.

I have a new microwave oven Model JVM1750SM1SS. Does this model allow me to use seconds rather than minutes. For instance can I place a frozen dinner roll in the oven for twenty seconds?


It should. Normally to cook 20 seconds you would pres COOK TIME - 2 - 0 - START.

Neff Microwave H5470SOGB


if appliance runs for approx twenty seconds this is nearly always a magnetron fault usually a cracked magnet or burnt out anode the electronics are detecting an unusual power fluctuation and shutting appliance down for safety you will need service tech to sort.

Microwave shutsdown after 24 seconds, does not heat up


Classic symptom of a defective inverter. It it's under warranty, you're probably in luck. If not, expect repair costs of about $120-150. If you can find a servider who will repair the inverter instead of just replacing it, you can save some money. If you or a friend can replace it yourself, you'll really save, assuming you follow safe procedures. You can find my file "safety.txt" via a Yahoo search. It is part # A606Y5X00AP for model NN-T993S and runs $62.83 plus shipping. The inverter can be gotten from Panasonic at http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/epartr
