Question about Panasonic NN-T994SF Microwave Oven
The manufacturing date is May2005 on my model of the microwave. This strange things started happening couple of weeks back. We tried to reset & unplug for couple of hours, but as soon as you open the turntable slowly starts to rotate.
Also, in the past the door didnot click properly, so could not operate the oven. Is this somehow related to the door latch? Hope there is no microwave leaking when the door is open.
Is there any recall on this model?
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally 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.
There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.
The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.
Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.
One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.
