Question about Microwave Ovens

Hi there, I have a panasonic microwave which is a few years old now. The problem is that it goes for about 20 secs then stops, the display returns to the time and the light in the microwave goes out. Doesn't seem to heat at all before cutting out???

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.

hi,
look in the back through the grille with a flashlight to see if the cooling fan is running, you should feel a slight draft there too. if not running take the cover off and oil the magnetron cooling fan with 3 in1 sewing machine oil. oil it on both sides of the motor so its saturated. if it does it again you will have to order that motor. probably at panasonic.com or searspartsdirect.com. be careful inside the microwave with the cover off, avoid the red high voltage wires. use gloves if necessary. panasonics are a pretty good oven, worth fixing..

Hi, I have a Panasonic Inverter microwave NN-Sn9688. It's less than a year old and when you press the START button H98 appears and it will not start. Everything else works, clock etc and reset/stop...


Hi Judith, I am Kelly

If this has a 1 year warranty it is time to make that call.

Otherwise see this link about H97 or H98 codes: http://www.applianceaid.com/micro_faultcodes.html#panasonic

There are a few things that can cause the problem, none of them cheap repairs. The Magnetron filament, Control board and Inverter are the top 3 other than a losse connection.

I tried running the Model number NN-SN9688 and it does not cross. See Panasonic link here: http://www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/PNAEndecaSearchCmd?N=779832097&Ne=&No=0&Nr=12001&Ns=&Ntk=SupportSearch&URL=vSupportSearch&cmTag=true&catalogId=11017&storeId=15001&cm_sp=SiteSearch-_-SupportSearch-_-SupportHome&Ntt=NN-SN9688&x=28&y=20

I did not go to Panasonic Global and try other countries. I just did a USA search.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.
