Customer Question

I bought a Panasonic Over the range Microwave oven, model # ***** in 2004. The oven recently started acting up by losing power. I set it for two minutes, and after 30 seconds it shuts itself off. Also it sometimes takes twice as long to heat as usual, or it will not heat at all.

Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! It sounds like the electronic control may be failing. It would appear that the parts for this model have been discontinued. At 11 years old, that is not surprising. I would replace the microwave.
