If you take off the cover panel, you can see the microswitch and its adjustment slot on the control panel side. This can be adjusted to operate correctly.

SOURCE: Panasonic Microwave Turn table rotates when door is open

Found this Panasonic post in the Samsung section!

If it moves just a tiny bit when the door opens and then stops, that's normal.

If it keeps running when the door is open, that's usually due to a bad door switch or broken / loose door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: Need door assembly diagram to

While I don't have that model's diagram, normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Normally the problem is not the spring, but a broken spring mounting tab on the door latch head (hook) assembly or the inner door panel.

If it's the door panel, it's usually easier and cheaper to use epoxy and some kind of hardware to fashion a new spring mount.

The door latch head (hook) is easy to replace or repair if that's the issue.

You can order Panasonic parts here.

SOURCE: microwave door won't close

If you gently push up on the door latches (hook-like devices on the door) there should be spring tension. If they just flop right up, the spring is off.

SOURCE: Panasonic microwave door is stuck.

If you push in on the open door button and it just goes in and does not open the door, then the problem is that the plastic piece that actually opens the door has broken. You can verify this by removing the cover from the microwave and look inside. If you are handy just buy the part from the panasonic parts store in your city and replace it. If not take it in and they will replace it for you.

Good luck

SOURCE: Can't open microwave door

It sounds like the push to open lever is cracked or broken. You have to remove the 'wrapper' to open the door manually from the inside to check the 'door keys' or door hooks to make sure that they are in tact. Then, check the door opening lever between the 'push to open button' and the lower door key.

Why does Panasonic nn-sn651 usually work; but sometimes, turntable won't start ?


This is an inverter model so there is no diode or hv capacitor.
You must adt. the door latch switch assembly to make sure that the door hooks make contact with the switches. Common problem is that the assembly is bent and must be perpendicular to the door.If it is bent the switch will not make contact with the door hooks.
Place a dab of lithium grease on the tip of the door hooks to ease closing the door. This is the cause of the bent switch assembly!

My micro wave door opens n does not shut tightly I guess and so takes about ten tries opening n shutting before it starts. What should I do Panasonic inverter microwave (the genius prestige) Model...


The door is either out of adjustment, the door switches are out of adjustment, or the door/hinges are damaged. If the door switch assembly can be adjusted to fix the problem, then make sure the door closes as snugly as possible. As any repair to a door can increase the amount of microwave leakage, which can cause possible health issues for you, it might be wise to, at the very least, have a technician do a radiation leakage test on the unit once the door problem is repaired.

Microwave "DOOR" in display.


Most likely the switch that senses whether or not the door is closed is either out of adjustment, meaning when the door closes it doesn't physically make the switch contacts close, or the switch is defective. If you can physically find the switch you can "trick" it by holding it closed with a piece of tape. If that works then the switch is simply out of adjustment. If that doesn't work then you can short together the two wires going to the switch which simulates the closed internal contacts of the switch. If that works your switch has failed. If neither works then you may have a broken switch wire or solder joint where the switch inputs it's signal to a circuit board. If it is a bad circuit board you may spend the same amout of money replacing the board as you would buying a new microwave. Please be careful with theses test procedures and remember dealing with electricity can be a shocking experience! Good luck.

Door closes but will not turn on . Have to slam it Model # NN-SD698S Inverter S/N 6810190386


There are micro-switches in the control panel that are out of adjustment or sticking.
The switches have to make contact with the door latches when the door closes.
Adjust the position of your switches.

I have aa brand new panasonic microwave oven. The door seemed sprung, you had to lift it slightly to get it to close. After using it last night, and slosing the door the interior light stayed on.... how...


Either the door or the door switch mounts need to be adjusted.

Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.

Door misalignment causing microwave to stop. Panasonic nns951bf


This is a common problem.

Either the door hinges need to be realigned, or the door switch mounts need to be adjusted. I suspect the latter.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.
