Question about Panasonic NN-T774SF Microwave Oven

1 Answer

On for 2-3 seconds and shuts down with slight wire burning odor.

My microwave goes on for 2-3 seconds then shuts down with a "wire-burning type" odor and the remaining time cancels out also, but the clock continues to work. Repair or replace? Thanks.

Http:// is showing this model selling for as little as $100. But as a technician, I have never cared for the inverter models. As complexity increases...

GE spacemaker microwave turns off during cooking and display goes black

Step 1:

Door Switch

If the microwave runs for a few seconds and then shuts off, a door switch might have failed intermittently. Check each of the door switches for any signs of overheating, arcing, or burning. Also check each of them for continuity. Replace any of the switches that is visibly damaged or that only has continuity intermittently


Step 2:

Main Control Board

If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops there may be a short circuit in the main control board. Check other components first, these boards are often misdiagnosed.

Touchpad and Control Panel

If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad and control panel might be defective. There are several other components that can cause this problem, be sure to check any other components before replacing this board.


If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the touchpad might be at fault. This is not common. Generally speaking, if the microwave display is working and some of the buttons respond correctly but some don't, the problem is with the touchpad.

High Voltage Transformer

If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the high voltage transformer might have an intermittent short. This is not common. Check other components related to the microwave symptom first.


If the microwave runs for a few seconds and stops the thermostat might be defective. Watch our video on testing thermostat

Team, I have a GE JVM1630 BK01 Microwave Oven, yesterday after we finished heating up some food we shut the microwave door and it remained running even though it the programed timer ran to zero. We tried...


There is no reset button for this type of problem to be properly solve.
this type of problem can be view from two angle here below
1) From the wall power supply connection
2) from the oven wires connection to the panel or unit control

What this could indicate from your explanation is that there has been a bring of wire from the power control connected to the element (heater), what you are to do to solve this problem carefully, is to carefully unscrew the oven then trace the wire from the main power supply down to the control switch (panel or unit) after you most have unplug it from power supply to see if there is any of meant wires around if you are un able to trace any loose/bad wire then couple it back to it position and trace the problem to the main power supply from the wall mean that a partial contact from the wall unscrew it with a screw driver (technician tools )fix it up and then couple it back with this the problem of continuous will be solve.

thank you and thanks for using fixya.

How to set clock on sharp microwave

normally you look for the clock ot watch icon. Pressing it once will give you the option for 24 hours setting. Press it twice and it will give you the opportunity to set to 12 hours setting. Using the no. keypad, punch in the time and then repress the clock icon again.

Micro wave operates for a few seconds then shuts down, light goes out, but fan continues to work

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.

The oven will also strop after 22 seconds if there are certain problems with the inverter or magnetron.

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.

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

Microwave quit

I would suspect either door switches or an intermittent control circuit board, either of which can be repaired. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP pad) is the primary cause of door switch failure over time. I have a text file on my site called "doorsw.txt" which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems. You can find the file via a Google search. It will help you check and replace the door switches if you or an able friend is so inclined. In some cases, the problem is a bad connection or a bad relay on the control board. That's something we see fairly often, and we repair them for only $32.50 nationwide.
