Question about Panasonic NN-S542 Microwave Oven
Hi, everything on my microwave oven works but just doesn't heat up (no matter what setting its at) and after being on for 30secs it just turns off. Can you help please. Thanks.
In this as in other inverter models, shutting off after 30 seconds (more like 20 in most cases) is usually a symptom of a bad inverter or magnetron. Due to the lethal voltages involved, I do not recommend that a person without training and experience ever work on these models. You should be able to locate a Panasonic-authorized servicer here: http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/WhereTo/FindServicer.asp?Pass=1 I would mention the exact symptom when you call so the technician can bring a new inverter and other parts with him when he comes out to repair it. Might save you having it pulled into the shop. If you or a friend insist on trying to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can order parts via Panasonic at http://www.pasc.panasonic.com/epartr
