Have a Panasonic microwave NN-SD681S. Everything was working

Customer Question

Hello there,
Have a Panasonic microwave NN-SD681S.
Everything was working then simply had this issue:
Setting timer, by 1 minute or rotating the dial.... on pressing Start... lite comes on for about 1 second then shuts down. There is an audible click when it turns itself off.
All other electric lighted features work.
Is there a fuse issue going on, it is not blowing the circuit fuse.

Hello and thanks for using this service, if you have been waiting do not worry or get upset I am just one of the techs on here and I try to get to as many customers as I can and I just picked up your question now. Please give me time to respond as typing, researching and adding links takes me time to do so please be patient and often I will ask you questions to narrow down the issue so do not rate me until we are done thanks. So let’s get started!

Dick, try to unplug the unit for 1 full minute to reset the control board. If that continues to do that afterwards you need to replace the inverter board in the unit. The cost of the board is pretty high nearly the cost of buying a new one so I am not sure you will want to fix it.

We are on the honor system for our time, all I ask is please rate my service using the star rating link on your page before you leave. If you are not happy with the service please let me know before leaving a negative rating. This is the only way I am paid or credited through the site for my time. This will also allow you to get directly back to me for FREE follow up questions and tips are greatly appreciated! Thanks
