Question about Panasonic NN-T993SF Microwave Oven
The microwave starts up and the turntables turns for just over twenty seconds, but then just stops. The food does not feel any warmer. The power remains on. There are no unusual sounds or smells. I thought perhaps the exhaust vents were covered and the microwave was shutting itself down to prevent overheating, but I cleared any possible obstructions and the problem still persists. The unit is just over two years old.
Classic symptom of a defective inverter. It it's under warranty, you're probably in luck. If not, expect repair costs of about $120-150. If you can find a servider who will repair the inverter instead of just replacing it, you can save some money. If you or a friend can replace it yourself, you'll really save, assuming you follow safe procedures. You can find my file "safety.txt" via a Yahoo search. It is part # A606Y5X00AP for model NN-T993S and runs $62.83 plus shipping. The inverter can be gotten from Panasonic at http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/epartr
