Customer Question

My son was using my NN-CF760M Panasonic combi. It was set at 210 for 25mins.
about five minutes before it was due to end it tripped a switch in my fuse box.
Do I need to get an engineer to look at it?

Hi microwaves can contain lethal voltages even when disconnected from their power supply!!
This is one of those times where the fuse at your main box may be weak, but it is likely an overload inside the microwave.
This one would really be best to have looked at by an engineer local to you.
Most Appliance repair companies will do this for you;-)
You can do a web search to find one or let me know your state and town and I will locate one for you.
Thank you and have a great Saturday!
