Question about Panasonic Microwave Ovens
I recently got the same model. Having same issue. Found that cooking on 70% power and plugging 4:30 time in and take it out as soon as it stops popping rapidly. It cooked nicely but bag doesn't get quite as full as they would with my old microwave but not enough of a diff to be worried about.

Wow, 1250 watts is a lot. Most microwaves I know about are 850 watts or less. Are you sure this isn't the grill rating, rather than the microwave? You don't want to have the grill on when popping corn of course.
The thing is, there is no way to reduce the actual power of a microwave. Settings that claim to reduce the power actually just turn the magnetron off and on periodically, so the average power over time is reduced. When it is on it is always at full power.
When I pop corn I just set the microwave to a pretty long period, like ten minutes, at full power and stand over it. The corn starts popping after a couple minutes and quickly reaches a crescendo, then the popping tails off. When a couple of seconds goes by without a pop, I stop the microwave. This is the recommended method on some bagged popcorn I have tried, and it also works with ordinary popcorn in any old brown paper bag. I think popcorn varies too much to be reliably popped by an automatic program- in fact I distrust all the automatic programs on microwaves, including defrost. They are there as selling points, and seldom work as well as they are supposed to.

Unfortunately there is not an override option for any automated sensor settings for this or other Panasonic Genius model. It is a pre-calculated average that is established from the factory.
