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.

Everything runs but nothing gets hot?


Magnatron is possibly burnt out. This is the part that sends the waves through the food to heat it. The cost for one is possibly more than the cost to replace the whole microwave

Everything is working but food is not geting hot. Panasonic Inverter 5-6 years old.


hello there first off does yours unit count right down to stop if you set it for 1min does it go all the way to 0 if it does thn it is more then likely to be the magnetron tht has failed as most other faults will be read bythe inverter as a shut down so we need to kno how long ur unit runs four sorry just need tht info to better help you.
