In the bin now? Time for a new one perhaps, depending on how good it used to perform in conjunction with any faith you have left in the product.
It is likely to be the diode pack if it is a standard type or invertor board if it is that type.

Smoke coming from under oven


You need a new microwave or you need an appliance repairman. Usually smoke in an electronic product means that there is a short in the wiring or overheating circuit board. If it is still under warranty take it back where you got it.

Microwave stopped working with no warning. They had a recall on this model and since they ordered two parts it has not worked right


Just had my Kitchen Aid Microwave KHMS155LSS burn up and bellow smoke.

Thankfully, I was close by, stopped the microwave, vented the smoke, turned off the circuit breaker and unplugged it. Still the smell of burned motor, burned plastic has me concerned. Did it get hot enough to cause problems behind the drywall? So far, I am keeping a "fire watch" to make sure nothing is smoldering.

Shuts off after approx 5 - 7 sec. some smoke


If it stops after 7 seconds, it has a problem with the inverter.

If the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle.

It may be a loose connection in the wiring between the inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of those components has failed.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

You can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.

In Canada, you can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.
If you prefer to replace the inverter yourself, you can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

Microwave started smoking and stopped working


Did it smell electrical or like something arcing?

I would suspect your magnetron or high voltage transformer has failed.

Please write back with your brand and model number if you need further help.

Burned out oven and house full of smoke


The cavity is mostly metal. It will be hard to clean and never fresh again, but the oven function may be fixable. The oven has several temperture sensors. If one or more sensors have tripped they may have to be replaced. Check the sensors with an ohmmeter, make sure the door closes securely and go from there.
