There are sixty seconds in a minute, so 1 min 60 sec is the same as 2 min. If you want 40 seconds less than 2 minutes then set it for 1 min 20 sec or for 80 sec.

I have an Emerson 900W Microwave MW8999SB and it will randomly assign DEF1 and the rest of the keypad is difficult or not functioning. None of the quick buttons work, and only the 30-second button works....

Pressing the Clear/Pause button works. Sometimes. Most of the time, about a microsecond after pressing Clear/Pause, it goes right back to def1. Most of the time, pressing ANY button doesn't work. Usually takes me 10 to 20 tries to get anything to work. My microwave is about 3 months old. I will never buy Emerson again.

It is cracked and sparks fly when it is in use. Where can I buy a new one? The microwave is fairly new.

Microwaves can be purchased at any appliance store, the best location around here is usually HHGregs. But not knowing where you live its hard to say. Also if you are looking to replace it with the same type (although if it is fairly new and already cracked maybe a different type or model would be a better solution) I would do a google search. Usually, the first couple of results are paid promotions for whatever it is you are looking for. Good luck

Power level

Press he power button and select a number 1-9. If you press 20 it will use 0 as the power. The numbers correspond to percentage of time the cooking energy is applied during the cycle. 5 is 50% so it will be cooking for 30 seconds out of each minute. 2 would be 20% and 9 = 90%. Hope this helps... Eric

Microwave runs for about 20 seconds then shuts off.

My mother had the same problem and she was going to trash it. Me being an extreme environmentalist, dint wanna let it go to the scrapyard. Got it down to Mumbai India checked with the engineers down here and rectified it. Problem was with the Magnatron. You would need to replace it. Well this one's getting repaired and off to a institution in need like the Home for the Aged rather than some scrapyard.

Micro is working only for 15-20 second

its overheating,the high temp overload will shut it off until it cools then it will let the unit work again.If it was the capacitor or the high voltage diode the unit would stop working,and not work again.

I have a panasonic v681 convection microwave when the microwave turned on for whatever time it starts for approx 2 seconds then switches off for no apparent reason

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.

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

I have a new microwave oven Model JVM1750SM1SS. Does this model allow me to use seconds rather than minutes. For instance can I place a frozen dinner roll in the oven for twenty seconds?

It should. Normally to cook 20 seconds you would pres COOK TIME - 2 - 0 - START.

Panasonic microwave starts to work but stops after 20 seconds Microwaves not working but turntable goes round

The 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.
