Question about Panasonic Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Microwave has power, but nothing works.

Panasonic NNSD291S over the range microwave. The unit has power, clock and timer function, but virtually nothing else works.The stove facing lights and fans do not work, the interior light doesn't function either. When activated, the Microwave timer goes down about 3 seconds without the microwave actually functioning, then it stops the timer and returns to the clock setting. Any help??

The door switches are more than likely the problem, one or two will need to be replaced, I recommend a professional.

It is possible that the magnatron is bad but hard to say on a no heat problem without checking all components. A lot of model give 5-7 yr warranty on that part.

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.

You have a bad secondary interlock (top door switch) or its mount is bad.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

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

Sharp microwave 8888 is flashing and I cannot remove


see this steps and fix it. God bless you

Reset the clock. Press "Clock" and the correct time, using the number pads. Press "AM/PM" if applicable, and press "Start" or "Clock" to confirm.

  • 2 Press "Timer On/Off" to reset the timer if nothing on the touch pad will operate. Use the number pads to select a new timed amount, if desired, and press "Timer On/Off" to start. Press again to cancel.
  • 3 Press and hold "Clear/Off" for three seconds if the timer will not function or is blinking when you touch the pads. This will release the "Child Lock" feature. Make a new touch pad selection.
  • 4 Disconnect power to the microwave if following Steps 1 through 3 does not resolve the blinking timer. Wait a few minutes, and then restore power to reset the microwave.

  • However if the problem persist the display board
    main control board is faulty

    Everythink works except the microwave will not start. Is there a fuze that can be replaced to fix this ? Model # NN-2551 I found the user manual on-line, but I can't find the product spec sheet breakdown...


    I'm not sure what you mean by "everything works". do you mean that all the lights and the timer work. Could it be in the timer or clock mode? Try pushing the timerand cancel buttons together.
    Try changing the time using the clock function.

    I believe your model has a child lockout. Please check your manual for instructions on unlocking this function.

    Is it hardwired or plugged in? If it is plugged in you can try a power reset, by unplugging it, waiting a few minutes and plugging it back in. It is completely unsafe to try to work on a hardwired Microwave.

    Please let us know if this solution is helpful to you. Thank you.

    How do I get my Panasonic Inverter microwave out of demo mode? I think my toddler might have hit something to put it in demo!


    Hello Two options to try: a) Press the Clock / Timer button 3 times b) Unplug, wait a few seconds, then re-plug to power up with the factory settings. You will need to reset your clock and any favourite settings.
    This should work with all Panasonic Microwave models.
    Good luck

    Has power to unit but nothing works, ie. oven, clock, timers, etc


    If you don't see any light in the display or from the light bulb inside it you probably need to replace the fuse inside the microwave, it should be by the place where the cord goes in the microwave.

    Microwave not working


    The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

    If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

    Otherwise, your controller or keypad may have moisture on it.
