I have a Panasonic microwave and it is 4 years old or less.

Customer Question

I have a Panasonic microwave and it is 4 years old or less. I cannot get it to work because when I set it it comes on for 2 secs and goes off immediately. It will not stay on to cook anything. I reset the Circuit Breaker but that did not help. Will I have to replace it because I use it daily.

Nothing else and I do not want to belong to any program. Just answer my question if you can and this isn't a scam.

Well I am not dumb enough to spend money on a microwave when it can be replaced for probably a little more than what the repairs would cost. I don't want a repaired Microwave and it is my first experience with a Panasonic and I sure won't buy another one of those.

I would agree, that magnetron is pricey. That is the problem with microwaves, they are almost designed as a disposable appliance!

I am finished and I didn't join any club either so don't try charging my card as I will challenge it. I agreed on one price for your answer which sure isn't worth $37 for 1 minute but don't even think of charging for anything else. Barbara Caldwell
