Good afternoon and Welcome to Justanswer,

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today.

I am sorry to hear you are having trouble with your Panasonic Microwave.

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 6 days ago.

Is it completely dead and have you checked the plug fuse ?

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 6 days ago.

If you have already checked the plug fuse and it is still completely dead then, I am afraid, the control board is faulty and will need replacement.

However, if control lights up and it will not work on Microwave setting then I am afraid, this indicates an issue with the Magnetron that is faulty and will need replacement.

When you turn on the Microwave it starts and then after few seconds magnetron kicks in however, if control detects magnetron has not started to heat it will turn itself off or even trip the circuit.

When magnetron is faulty the Invert board is replaced as well, sorry about the bad news.

Alternatively, you may call Panasonic at 0344(###) ###-####/b> to book repair.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
