My panasonic genius sensor 1300w just stopped working mid-microwaving. It seems there is no power at all... no lights or anything. I checked the power source in my home and all is well.It is almost 2 years old.

Check for a circuit breaker on the back. If nothing, pull the plug and remove the case. Look for a blown fuse. If so, look for a shorted high voltage diode in the magnetron power supply or a shorted stirrer bearing located above or beside the cavity area where the microwaves enter. The stirrer is a metal fan-like device with a plastic bearing that often arcs internally. That shorts the microwaves out and blows a fuse. Replace the stirrer.

Microwave genius sensor 1300w

I don't believe it is possible to change the display angle/tilt on this microwave. The unit ships with a protective film over the display that should be removed to make the display easier to read. However, this model is known to be difficult to read unless looking at straight-on. That and needing a flashlight to look at your food with the door open since the internal light does not stay on when door is opened. Good luck!.

Hello, I know it might seem dumb, but I just purchased a genius sensor 1300 w and I can't put the clock at the right time... (sorry about my english, I'm french in africa :) ) Anybody could help me ? ...

Plug the microwave into the power source and press stop/cancel. Just above the stop/cancel button is "clock"
Press that and adjust by using the timer buttons.
Hope that helps but just in case go to Panasonics web site to download a manual if you haven't got one.

Shuts off after 15 seconds

sounds as if the magnetron has gone bad.this part of the machine is still under a warranty,and you need to call for a service technician to look at it.

do not use the unit until you get someone to look at it and or replace it.

Microwave stopped working last night

If the microwave worked for a little while after you plugged it in again then it is just overheating.It is usually just dust/dirt collecting on the vents.the fan,and the magnetron(the thing the fan blows on).If cleaning all these doesn't solve the problem you may have a bad high temp overload sensor,and need to replace it.(this sensor is usually mounted directly on the top of the magnetron.The magnetron is the part that actually puts out the microwave signal.I've never seen a reset button.The high temp sensors reset themselves automatically.

My Panasonic Microwave Genius 1300W will not heat up the food and the rotate dish spins and the sensor reheat will not heat up the food. Nor cook Pop Corn when pressing the buttons to 2:00 cook time. I...

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.
