The main cover of the microwave needs to be taken off so you can get the door opened and then you should have access to the screws that hold the door together. the housing is the main part of the mw and once its off you should be able to open the door from the inside and thus be able to work on the door latch..please rate me thanks

Panel problem


Hello

Unplug the microwave from the wall outlet prior to disassembling.


Open the microwave door. Remove the screws securing the grill above the door opening to the microwave. Remove the grill.


Remove the screw located at the top of the control panel, which is now visible with the grill removed.


Lift the control panel up to release the tabs securing it in place. Move it away from the microwave.


Look at the rear of the control panel to any disconnected wires that may have caused the control panel to stop functioning. If wires are disconnected, reconnect them, reassemble the microwave and determine if the problem is still occurring. If the problem still occurs, replace the control panel.


Transfer the wires from the old control panel to the new control panel.


Move the panel back against the microwave's control panel housing. Slide it down to lock it into position.


Install the screw at the top of the control panel.

Replace the grill on the top of the microwave. Secure it using the screws that were removed.


Restore power to the microwave.

Panosonic Microwave convection Model NN-8501V Touchpad appears dead


The unit has a fuse in the power board, but when the fuse is gone it does not even start up. If it starts it is not the fuse.

Look rather a problem with a faulty touchpad, or the magnetron that is not working and need to be changed.

Check also the door sensor.

Is there an internal light in the NNT664SF


Yes, there is a light on the right hand side of the microwave (looking at the control panel). It is located directly behind the control panel and may be seen with a flashlight looking inside the door through the perforated metal housing. Four special hex-with-stem screws must be removed from the cover to access it, along with one standard Phillips head screw on the side. Once the screws are removed you must slide the cover toward the back about 1/2" before it will be able to tilt up and be removed.

For safety reasons make sure to unplug the unit and allow it to discharge before removing the cover. Also make sure to not touch anything you aren't intending to work on - it could be carrying power from the capacitor, which is like a battery, and might not be discharged while you are poking around inside.

I am currently seeking out a replacement lamp for mine. I could not find one at any of the local hardware stores as this has a proprietary base and the bulb is not removable from the base. I will be looking on ebay and elsewhere.

When I turn on my oven for cleaning it shows a f9 problem...could you help me with that


An F9 error code on a General Electric oven indicates that the oven's electronic control system has detected a problem with the automatic door lock. The automatic door lock mechanism prevents the oven door from being opened when the oven is set for "Clean" mode. The malfunction may be a jammed door lock mechanism, a pinched or broken wire, a faulty lock switch or a fault in the control board itself.

Things You'll Need:
  • Ohmmeter or multimeter
  • Phillips screwdriver
#step1

Disconnect power to the oven.
#
Step 2

Open the oven door. Remove three screws from underneath the oven's control panel. Lift the control panel straight up to disengage the mounting pins on the top corners of the panel, then tip the panel toward you.
#
Step 3

Inspect the door lock mechanism. The mechanism is in the lower left area of the space behind the control panel. Rotate the cam on the door lock mechanism to be certain it moves without binding. Replace the mechanism if its mechanical parts do not function properly.
#
Step 4

Inspect the wires that connect the door lock mechanism to the control panel. Check for pinched or broken wires. Check for wires with frayed insulation. Repair wires as needed if defects are present.
#
Step 5

Locate the six-pin connector on the door lock motor on the right end of the door lock mechanism.
#
Step 6

Rotate the cam on the door lock mechanism to the unlocked position. Test the resistance between Pin 3 and Pin 1 of the door lock connector with the ohmmeter. The resistance should be 0. Replace Lock Switch 2 of the door lock mechanism if the resistance reads other than 0.
#
Step 7

Rotate the cam on the door lock mechanism to the locked position. Test the resistance between Pin 3 and Pin 2 of the door lock connector with the ohmmeter. The resistance should be 0. Replace Lock Switch 1 of the door lock mechanism if the resistance reads other than 0.
#
Step 8

Contact a certified repair facility if the source of the F9 code has not been discovered.
Troubleshooting the oven with the electric power turned on is a job for a certified technician.

Do not perform troubleshooting on the oven with the power connected. Personal injury and damage to the oven can result.

Need to know how to remove the control panel to check the fuse. Will not run, push start, beeps three times and light is not working. Please help us!


the fuses for microwaves are not normally placed on the control panel...they are in the back near the power cord...but the fact that it beeps 3 times means the fuse is ok...power is going in....most likely, the fault is one or more of the door interlock switches which arc every time you open and close the door and they corrode or wear down very badly sometimes even burn away so that there is no more contacts to come together....interlocks are cheap to buy and they just snap in place....access to them is easy...just remove the cover and look right behind where the door closes on the inside, you'll see a plastic bar on the door that when you close the door...it pushes on the interlock switches on the inside to activate the oven.......if the interlocks are ok...then you probably have a shorted magnetron....very common on any type of microwaves are these 2 parts...( the interlock switches and /or magnetrons.....it's not likely that your control panel is bad unless you physically see that something has burned on it.....good luck

Panasonic - convection/microwave oven door is stuck shut spring will not open same -dinner in oven help


What usually breaks is the door open lever.

On a counter top model, the outer cover will need to be removed to diagnose and repair this. On an over-the-range model, only the control panel needs to be
removed.

Please unplug the oven first.

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have critical safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Once it is apart, you'll be able to see how the door open button would press against the door open lever, which would then lift up against the door latch heads (hook-like projections on the door) and the door should open.

You can order Panasonic parts here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I hope this picture shows up - it helps illustrate:

You mean it doesn't heat?

Any other symptoms or problems?

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

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

Stuck Microwave door


In most cases this is due to a broken door opening lever or loose or broken door latch / hook parts. They can only be accessed and examined if the cover is removed from the microwave. In many over the range models, you can access the door parts by removing the control panel assembly. Sometimes you may be able to get it open by pushing up gently on the bottom of the door while pushing the button, in case you need to empty it.
