We found that the button for the door sticks. It should last longer than three years before something like that happens. And, that we own two different Panasonic Microwaves. One ends and it shows Enjoy your meal after it is done. We enjoy seeing that as it reminds us that something is in the microwave. The other does not and just goes back to the time. We love the power settings for the Panasonic as it is a constant low if different power settings are used. Other microwaves do not do that and that is why we keep buying Panasonic Microwaves.
I have had my Panasonic microwave since 1982 and it runs like new and I have never had it worked on!!! I feel that is a pretty amazing appliance! Purchase a Panasonic brand, they last a long time! This microwave has been working for 35 years and still going strong! Hahaha!
We have a Panasonic model NN-SN667B that recently started shutting down the WiFi and televisions in our home. This didnt happen originally with the microwave. I called Panasonic customer service and claims departments and they told me this was normal. I sent the microwave back to them for evaluation and they found no problem with the microwave and said theyre returning it to me. I will not be using this microwave in my home and risk exposing my family to microwaves going throughout the house.
Panasonic 1250 - What is going on - this microwave just about was on fire. I show you the picture after I stop it. I could smell smoke.
I bought a Panasonic Microwave NNSB646S to replace a 15 year old Sharp that we loved until it failed. The Panasonic meets most of our requirements. It is a No Frills, easy to use model with some exceptions. The interior light does not come on when the door is opened. It does come on while in use. Why does it not come on when the door is opened & needed? The control panel is not backlit making it impossible to read the button when programming it. How much did Panasonic save in leaving off this feature? Unlike our earlier Sharp microwave, the Panasonic burns the food on the outer circumference while barely heating the interior product being heated. The button on the lower right to open the door is recessed and hard to push. The door spring is too strong or the catches are not designed correctly making it slam hard & make a loud noise when the door is pushed closed. The noise invariably wakes up the grand-baby in the next room. We can live with these inadequacies, but it could have been made much better.
This microwave stops working after 5-6 seconds and you have to open the door and slam it and restart it. I purchased it from Target on 11/27/11. It started doing this a couple of months ago but infrequently, now it does it numerous times a day. I sent an email to Panasonics customer service and was told to call for an authorized service center for repair. After reading all the complaints on here I gather that is a waste of time but Im curious to see what they will say. My son bought the same microwave on my recommendation and his is having the same problem, his also has a part, which I thought was metal, that fell off when the microwave was being cleaned. Turned out to be just a piece of heavy paper and the part that held it in broke off so its loose now and falls off all the time.
NN ST6815 Model Wont Turn off. After about a year our microwave door wouldnt shut properly and wouldnt start without shutting the door hard. Then about a year later the microwave wouldnt turn off. Ever. We took to an authorized repair shop and our $350 built-in microwave is cannot be repaired and is now in the landfill. After reading these reviews it seems there is an issue with the door and the start mechanism. I will never buy a Panasonic microwave or anything else by Panasonic again.
First, I want to respond to posters regarding Wi-Fi. Any microwave will interfere with 2.4 GHz Wi-Fi if the location of the Wi-Fi router and the microwave and your computer are in bad locations. Try relocating your router or computer or Microwave so it wont interfere. This is common knowledge. But the real problem with the Panasonic microwaves is like Earle of Huntsville, AL said. After about 6 months to a year, the flimsy metal bracket starts flexing when the door is closed, causing the door latches to not latch correctly, resulting in the micro switches to not make up correctly. Youll notice this when you have to start slamming the door hard to make it work.Unfortunately we had misplaced the receipt; otherwise, we would have returned to store. So somewhat similar to Earle of Huntsville, AL... I made a little wooden brace for mine which cured the problem. But its a cheap design for a microwave door latch switch and its almost like they designed it for failure. Youd think that it would be non-productive to build junk that will just be returned. How could they possibly be making any money on this?
Ours is a large 1200 watt microwave. We have had it for maybe 10 years. It has a turntable. We use it a lot every day. It has been dependable and we would not want to be without it. We keep it clean and it still looks almost new.
This microwave was already in the house I bought and after 6 years, it still works well. I have had 3 Panasonic microwaves in different houses and they have all worked well with no problems and they have lasted for as long as I lived in the houses.
The Microwave does all the cooking etc. very well. BUT - dont try to use it as a 1. Kitchen Timer or 2. Use the timer if something is being heated/cooked in the microwave. We have had several Microwaves over the years and all have been able to do both these functions. The timer emits 4 beeps when the time is up; other microwaves, continue to beep until shut off. Guess you better stay in the kitchen to hear the beep. This 4 beep function has remained unchanged since the beginning of time. If you are cooking with the microwave, you better get a dedicated timer. The 2 functions are mutually exclusive. I called Panasonic on this. I was told that is the way it is! Clearly, Panasonic pays no attention to detail or consumer wishes.
My $215 Panasonic microwave nn-sd987 is 20 months old and the inverter went bad. This is a common problem but not covered by warranty. It cost $209 to fix plus $50 fee just to look at it. This is more than the cost of the microwave. Panasonic said they have no life expectancy for their electronics, which tells me that they have no quality testing on new products. Panasonic products are junk and will never get my business again.
The latch mechanism gets loose so often that it no longer works, period. I tightened the screws as the YouTube video shows and made sure not to strip the plastic where the metal screw goes. My daughter spent $159 at Walmart for it as a Christmas gift which I greatly appreciated. But I feel this is a substandard microwave. The part that receives the screw should be metal. Im replacing it but not with a Panasonic product. Dont throw your money away on anything with plastic latches. You wont find anything worthwhile at Walmart as far as microwaves go.
I had a stainless steel. Looked great on the outside like brand new. After 5 years the inside peeled really bad. I guess it does this with all microwaves after time. It happens over time. All companies should do better cause the microwave still goes strong and works. It is just the peeling of the inside.
Updated on 06/22/2020: The Invertor Technology works well until it doesn‚€ôt. The problem is that the magnetron and the inverter are notoriously prone to early failure, more so in Panasonics, as internet and shopping site reviews everywhere illustrate. H98 error code less than 2 years old. Two weeks attempt to speak or contact anyone from Panasonic. 800 number menus with automated responses or 20-minute wait times. CHAT. wasn‚€ôt working. Called nearest authorized repair center 130 miles. ‚€úCan‚€ôt help you‚€Ě. Was told to call 800 number in Romania who will get in touch with Texas who will get in touch with Salem Supply Depot, only repair center who will contact you. Tried CHAT again. Offshore ‚€úSteve‚€Ě read from scripts, wasn‚€ôt very articulate and simply offered platitudes and apologies. Kept going around in circles. Asked for contact with someone in the States. His response: ‚€úIs there anything else I can help you with.‚€Ě Wrote back, ‚€úYes, you can answer the questions I just posed.‚€Ě I ended telling ‚€úSteve,‚€Ě It‚€ôs been the most fruitless conversation I can ever recall having. Shipping round-trip 260 miles is expensive for 41 lbs. I have a perfectly competent and reliable appliance repair center in my city. Panasonic wouldn‚€ôt entertain the idea of sending a magnetron so I could have it done locally. But it‚€ôs unconscionable that Panasonic execs refuse, even for the sake of good will, to accommodate customers with products that are designed for failure right after the service warranty expires. And Panasonic offers a 5-year magnetron warranty but it is impossible to use. Not only is shipping to a distant repair center expensive but the procedure is convoluted, contacts are unintelligent, and logistics are unreasonably burdensome. And Panasonic knows this. They can warranty the magnetron for 50 years. It wouldn‚€ôt matter to them. I purchased a Panasonic radio that I‚€ôve had for over 55 years and it works perfectly.Panasonic was known as the most reliable name in electronic products. It‚€ôs shameful that the CEO‚€ôs of Panasonic‚€ôs appliance division have allowed quality and service to devolve into mediocrity. Any microwave should last longer than two years. We will all be better off with the longevity of a traditional transformer or coil and a magnetron at full power than an inverter magnetron, and with any other maker than Panasonic. Shame on Panasonic CEOs for allowing what once was the reigning electronic company, known so well as epitomizing quality and customer service, to descend to this, such a lowly level.Original Review: Panasonic Microwave NNSE785S with H98 error, less than 2 years old and Customer Service unwilling to do anything. Called nearest authorized repair center 130 miles. Was told have to call 800 number in Romania who will get in touch with Texas who will get in touch with Salem Supply Depot, only repair center. They wouldnt even entertain the idea of sending the magnetron so I can have it done locally. Magnetron and inverter technology is prone to failure as internet reviews will show. But its unconscionable that Panasonic execs, for the sake of goodwill, refuse to accommodate customers with products that are designed to fail right after service warranty expires. And they offer 5 yr magnetron warranty but it is impossible to use. Not only is shipping too expensive, but the procedure is convoluted and contacts are unintelligent. Offshore staff read from a script and offer platitudes. Will be better off with the longevity of a traditional magnetic coil than an inverter, and any other maker than Panasonic. Shame on Panasonic CEO for allowing what was once the reigning quality and customer service electronic company to descend to this lowly level.
Panasonic Microwave Model #NN-H965WFX - Latch broke off... when closed door... apparently a common problem from these models from what I have read. Panasonic needs to address this problem and quit selling a product such as this. My previous microwave lasted over 10 years! The faulty one was purchased from Walmart. This seems to be a common problem with these type microwaves (From what I read).
This microwave has been reliable and works well. We‚€ôve had it 3 years now. We can fit a decent sized container inside. The prompts ask you for info so it can sense how long things should cook. Touchpad - easy to read.
Microwave set on fire. I was heating a microwaveable item I have used many times previously. Luckily I was beside the microwave. A few seconds Into the time, I saw flames inside. The metal plate on right hand side has a hole in it now where the flames were and is burnt. I see another person reported this. I loved this microwave but will never buy another one. Could have been a disaster!
Out of all the brands Ive had such as Sanyo and Samsung, the Panasonic microwave I have has been the most durable long lasting one. It also heats up food really well in very little time whereas other brands take twice the time and heat.
No problems with my microwave. It is fast and strong and works well. This is my first Panasonic product, but I would not hesitate to purchase another one, when I need to. It is compact and looks clean on my counter.
I have used Panasonic microwaves for the past 30 years. They are reliable, affordable and offer many features I enjoy. Choices and auto cook features seem to be more intuitive to my way of thinking. Also, I enjoy the easy ways that Panasonic allows one to begin right away or change or add time in the middle of cooking. I particularly like convection cooking and combo cooking with microwave/convection. Very predictable results.
Panasonic Model NN-H965 WFX - I purchased the microwave from Best Buy end of March 2014. It suddenly stopped working first week in August 2014. Will not run. Display on front says Close Door even though the door is closed. Unfortunately did not buy Best Buy extended warranty as they would have replaced the unit. Now have to contact Panasonic. Did not last even a year! Made in China it says on the unit. The quality and longevity of the unit proved that statement to be true!
Purchased one year ago, now the door will not close without slamming it. I dont know how long before it will not close at all? Tried calling Panasonic. They were no help. Cannot find any repair shops that will work on Panasonic or the cost to repair is as much or more than just buying a new microwave. I paid more money for this microwave thinking it would last longer. Very disappointed in Panasonic.
I purchased a Panasonic microwave just 2 years ago. Model #SN671S, it worked well. Then in just 2 years the display disappeared. Really? I paid around $300.00. Its now at Costco for $99.00. Did Panasonic dump these at Costco? Very unhappy with only 2 years of light use. I wont buy Panasonic again.
I purchased a countertop Panasonic microwave in August 2014 and it is already broken. The door would not shut and I could not see anything which would of prevented it from shutting. When it finally shut, the PLASTIC door latch broke off. There is a latch on the top and one on the bottom of the door. I would have thought with one latch still operable it would have still worked but it does not. It will no longer cut on at all. I tried calling the store where I purchased it but they said I have to send it back to Panasonic for repairs. By the time I pay for shipping and the hassle of shipping along with not having a microwave for weeks I will no doubt end up just buying another one but it will NOT BE A PANASONIC!
I bought the large Panasonic microwave (July 2013) and I loved it. After about a year and a half, it wouldnt start unless you slammed the door. Like the other reviews, it would just click and return to the clock. I bought it at Sams and purchased the extended warranty. They had me take to an appliance repair store and they fixed it making modifications to the latch and switch. That gave it another 2 months of life - now its worse than ever. I went by the repair store this morning to tell them it would not start again. He said there is probably nothing else they could do because the inside of the cabinet is made so cheap and the parts flex and wont stay in place to make contact to start the microwave. He said the best place for it is in the trash. That sure made me feel good.
Bought a Panasonic Model No.NN-SN942B microwave. The door kept getting a little harder to close over time, to the point of having to hold on to the side so as not to spill the inside contents. Finally it stopped working unless you held down on the door to engage the door latch to the on switch. Finally, after closing the door so many times, with difficulty, the door latch, or (key). Never have I owned a microwave that only lasted working 3 or 4 mo. after the warranty ran out.
So not even a year into Panasonic Microwave and its broken suddenly. When I open the microwave door it turns on and when I close the door it doesnt do anything. Its such a bizarre malfunctioning. Really upset! Never buying a Panasonic microwave again!
He tenido el microondas durante 30 a√Īos y todav√≠a funciona bien. Tiene la operaci√≥n de bot√≥n de moda, sin cosas de la computadora, MUY f√°cil de operar, y puedo leer los n√ļmeros f√°cilmente. Ya se ha dicho bastante.
Me encanta Panasonic, sigue y sigue, s√≥lo un problema en los 10 a√Īos que lo tengo fue un pestillo roto, lo arregl√© yo mismo y ning√ļn problema desde entonces. En el momento en que se rompi√≥ el pestillo, mi propia culpa, compr√© otro Panasonic como una copia de seguridad en caso de que no pod√≠a reparar la unidad de edad, que fue hace dos a√Īos y medio. Me qued√© con la nueva que compr√© porque estaba en oferta y me di cuenta de que se vende por otros 20 d√≥lares sobre el precio de venta al p√ļblico.
We love the all features, power, appearance, size, turntable, keypad, color, everything. We are a very very happy with this microwave. Panasonic is awesome. I dont know what else can I say. It does everything we need very well. I use it mostly for defrosting frozen breakfast biscuits.
Purchased microwave 13 months ago and now door wont close (not a spring problem). Also have had problems with wifi reception when microwave was in use. Will not buy this brand again. Purchase was made at Sams Club.
Excelente unidad de microondas, como esperaba de Panasonic. Queda muy bien en mi cocina y es f√°cil de manejar despu√©s de leer el manual de instrucciones adjunto. El vendedor empac√≥ la unidad con cuidado y envi√≥ la unidad de una manera muy oportuna.
I got my first Panasonic microwave in December of 1986. No bells or whistles just good quality service from a microwave that lasted for 15 years. Bought my second Panasonic microwave in 2001... quite an upgrade. This one was an Inverter model. LOVED IT! In a household of 7, this unit held up quite well for 10 years. Bought my third Panasonic microwave in November of 2011... same exact model as the previous model. Today, I have had to call to find a repair center because unless you SLAM the door, the unit will not work. Taking into consideration the declined use of the microwave, compared to the previous one, I am terribly disappointed in the quality of this unit. According to the owner of the repair shop (that I am to see for the repairs), this is a common problem in the newer Panasonic microwaves. Maybe its time to switch to a different brand.
I received a Panasonic Microwave Model NN SN 968B as a gift for Christmas 2012. I sent in the warranty card on 1-4-13. Aug. 10, less than 8 months later, the door latch broke leaving the microwave inoperable. I called the 800 number and was told, Sorry, you have to pay for the repairs, because I didnt have the receipt. I explained, Its a gift, and I did send in their warranty card with all the info on it. I was told, Thats not good enough. Well I dont understand why then do we send those cards back if they wont honor them. I dont make a practice (and I really dont think anyone does) of asking for all my receipts for gifts I get. I have sent Panasonic an E-Mail to their Contact Us line and am waiting for an answer. I have read the reviews and it seems Panasonic has a door latch problem but doesnt want to address it. Any help would be appreciated. I have a perfectly good microwave that wont work because the door wont close. I feel I should not have to pay to get this fixed.
I really like this Panasonic microwave as it replace my last one which was age. It has not missed a beat for the uses that this family of seven needed. We mostly use it to reheat leftovers, tv dinners and of course popcorn. We are not skilled enough to attempt meals.
Panasonic NN-T945SFX Microwave - I was cooking and I heard a loud cracking noise. I opened the microwave and the tray was in multiple pieces. I had to toss my food because it had small pieces of glass in it. I called Panasonic and these trays are on back-order and I believe it is because this is something that is common with this model. I will not replace this tray. It is almost as much as a new microwave, and I have to wait for the part, and not trusting that the new tray will be safe to use.
Purchased this microwave 1 year ago after my SHARP microwave of 11 years quit working. This Panasonic unit is only exactly one year old... Apparently the units have cheap wiring and are only designed to last one year so you have to pay money to their online support or purchase a new one. With no warning it just quit working after having for 1 year. My household has only 2 adults over age 50 and the microwave is not overused at all.I attempted calling Panasonic their product and refuse to because it is 1 year old and will charge me for advise on the phone or send me to a service center who will charge me. We ended up opening the unit to look for fuse issue. It turned out having melted wires which obviously blew the fuse. All of the information that I now read online about this Microwave model catching on fire and other internal electrical issues are apparently true due to the cheap wiring in the units. The units with the inverter seem to be the ones with faulty cheap wiring that makes the machine go bad after a year. We are lucky the fuse blew in the unit, as the unit turns out it would have been a fire hazard.Panasonic unlike Sharp will not offer any assistance at all in repairing the unit unless you pay upfront. They will say to you over and over that your unit is out of warranty (even though by only a few days). This Panasonic cost twice the price of the SHARP until that I had for over 12 years. Panasonic loves to fill the landfills with faulty microwaves or find a way to get additional money out of you minutes after the warranty expires. In my opinion the worst manufacturer of consumer electronics. I will never purchase another Panasonic brand product again. I will never recommend the Panasonic brand to anyone. I will warn people against purchasing any electronic products from Panasonic.
Ive had Panasonic microwaves in houses that I rented, as well as the house I own. These microwaves are workhorses, and they never seem to fail. Besides being attractive, they are a way to prepare family dinners quickly. Mine is 1,000 watts plus. The clock on the front, helps me to adjust all of my kitchen clocks, as well as the clocks in other rooms. The microwave feature are also great, but does a vegetarian need a probe to cook. Veggies are done in minutes, and I never cook meat. Popcorn cooks fast too, but I never buy the mystery stuff in microwaveable bags.
I just wanted to say that the same thing happened to my Panasonic microwave. The door was very hard to close and then the clip inside that holds the door shut broke. Its just not fair. I thought Panasonic was one of the top brands. But now that I hear all these other people who were snubbed, I was sure they would stand behind their merchandise, not right to do to your loyal customers. And Im a customer who loved them, I was always telling my friends to get Panasonic, its the best. I have many things by Panasonic. I wont be saying that any more. Its too bad that they came down to those other businesses level. Sounds stupid, but I feel a little heart broken.
Unit rocks on counter, (somehow the entire unit is twisted) and door hangs at an angle, Panasonic is charging me a 15% restocking fee for an item they cant resell plus return shipping! I have only owned microwaves from Panasonic, they have made their last dollar off of me. 1.6 Cu. Ft. Built-In/Countertop Cyclonic Wave Microwave, Order Number: ** Order Date: Jan 22, 2017, arrived 2/18/17. NOT WORTH THE WAIT!!! I HAD PLANNED TO EXCHANGE IT, BUT I AM NOT PAYING FOR THE RETURN POSTAGE!!!
When you Google microwaves lifespans it estimates 10 years on average. This one is 5. Works well but paint is peeling on the bottom. Had already been replaced once. Warrantied one year. No customer service. 100 dollar piece of crap NN3725.
In Jan 2013, we purchased the NN-H965BF microwave from Best Buy to replace the previous Panasonic microwave that had lasted over 16 years. The longevity and similar controls operation was the logic behind our purchase. We try to stick with what works. HOWEVER -- the hard closing door was immediately obvious. We went back to the store and felt the door on a display unit and it was the same way so we just figured that was how it was designed and as long as it seemed to function OK just leave well enough alone. Fooled us -- Did not last 1-1/2 years before it really started acting up and having to slam the door to get it to run, then not at all -- Call to Best Buy and Panasonic only got the unconcerned response -- its out of warranty and you must take it to an Authorized service center. If they are not paying for the repairs then I get to take it to whomever I want -- Tear down revealed upper door hook cracked (but still looked OK) with interlock switch pressure causing the hook to move up away from the switch lever and failing to activate the switch - second issue was the massive pressure required to close the door was bending the switch mounting bracket letting the assembly get out of alignment -- Panasonic engineering dept should get fired over this one seeing as it appears to be a systemic problem with their newer units. Parts were less than $20 but as this was an obvious conspiracy to increase profit margins instead of Quality, this will be my last Panasonic.
This microwave is not performing well. When we heat food macaroni for example it heats partial, only some of the food in the plate. Its cold with the same temperature when we took it out of the refrigerator and the other side of the same plate is hot and smoking. When we do popcorn same results. We contacted customer service and we were not satisfied with the lack of knowledge Panasonic person provided over the phone. We hate to return it back but we will wait for a better deal of another brand and will ditch this junk Panasonic microwave.
This is by far the best microwave Ive had. Its sensor reheat works great even with pizza. Very good product. Also, the quick minute button is quite handy. It is also quite powerful so I get to use the lower time settings for meals.
I have the larger microwave at home; the smaller version at the office. I thought the larger was rather spendy, but if you broke down the cost compared to the number of years Ive had it, its money well spent. We had the fuse burn out once. Easy to repair ourselves and relatively inexpensive.
Tengo un microondas inverter Panasonic, y juro por sus grandes caracter√≠sticas. Es muy f√°cil de limpiar, ya que es todo de acero inoxidable. Tiene 4 a√Īos y todav√≠a parece nuevo. Nunca he tenido ning√ļn problema con √©l. Creo que limpiarlo regularmente es la clave de su longevidad. Estoy en el Reino Unido, por lo que utilizamos 240 voltios. Escribo esta rese√Īa porque estoy muy satisfecho con mi compra y recomiendo encarecidamente este producto. Espero que esto sirva de ayuda a la gente que quiera comprar este producto.
My old Sharp microwave died this morning after 9 years, so I went to Costco to get a new one. They only had Panasonic Microwave available model NN-SA651S for a hundred bucks, a great deal. Came home, removed the dead Sharp microwave and cleaned the counter space under it. Put the new Panasonic Microwave in the space. Plugged in, set the clock and got ready to cook a frozen burrito for lunch. Set the timer for 2 minutes cooking and the thing started cooking. A minute or so later, it stopped cooking. I was thinking, wow that was kinda quick but how come it didnt beep when it was done like my old microwave or other microwaves? The burrito was still cold so I tried to cook it a minute more and that was when I found out my brand new Panasonic Microwave was DEAD. It display code H98, which the manual says the power supply has failed. OMG! Panasonic used to be one of the best and trusted brand and now its just made-in-China garbage. Tomorrow I have to go back to Costco to exchange for another one. Hopefully Id get a better one or maybe the same garbage again, SMH.
We have always purchased Panasonic microwaves. Our last microwave is over 20 years old and still works well. The one before that was 15 years. We didnt upgrade the microwave when we went to stainless appliances. It is working so well. Why change it?
The microwave works ok but the revolving plate doesnt sit on the bottom easily. You have to wiggle it on until it finally drops down correctly. The door and area around the controls are hard to clean well.
Purchased a Panasonic microwave, model NN-SN745S over a year ago. After a few months noticed laptop, cell phone and tablet WiFi lost internet connection in the kitchen whenever the Panasonic Microwave NN-SN745S is turned on. Wifi router is in the living room over 30 feet away from the microwave. No return back to the store after 30 days. The door wont close easily. You have to give it a hard slam in order to close it. The door doesnt always close or open when the latch release is pressed after a year.Now just over a year later microwave will only run or work for two minutes or less. You have to wait 30 minutes before the microwave will work again. We own all walks of Panasonic electronics like wireless phone, TV, sound system, laptop, electric pencil sharpener and etc without any problem with great reliability. This Panasonic Microwave Model NN-SN745S is not reliable at all. What a poor reliable microwave product. I would test to make sure your WiFi still connect to the internet when the microwave is turned on before the 30 days is up if you decide to buy another Panasonic Inverter Microwave if Wifi connection is important to you. I am just going to stay away from Panasonic Inverter Microwave and try with another brand from now on based on from other reviewers.
Turbo inverter spewed out thick smoke after a few seconds of baking my apple fruit concoction for breakfast. My husband turned it off. A quick internet search turned up videos of the same fire - with flames. (Youtube Panasonic inverter microwave fire). Customer relations seemed interested and sympathetic until the annoying Sylvia called, Its not a fire but a concentration of energy - I told her so was the atomic bomb. This concentration of energy filled my kitchen and dining room with smoke in a few seconds. Had I been putting on my laundry Id have been trapped in the basement. She insisted there could be no flames, Youtube shows otherwise. (if you CHOOSE to believe Youtube). Late call tag was sent to the wrong address (right!) Wrote to the CEO of NA in Newark, and the annoying Sylvia called with the same spiel. The have a dangerous product and are not interested.
5 months after purchasing Panasonic 2.2 inverter microwave from Walmart, it has died. Nothing wrong with our power or receptacle. No lights on unit, nothing. Heated up a cup of water for 40 seconds and it quit. Avoid buying this kind of microwave!
The pros: large area for cooking, even cooking, lots of bells and whistles, fast defrost. Overall, I loved this microwave. My complain news. After about 6 months of use, we began having problems with the door. It was not latching properly. My husband was able to rectify that for several months by using a lubricant on it. But now, left down a year later, we are no longer able to use the microwave and the door has become completely non-functional. We must now replace the whole microwave.
Have had this microwave for more than 10 years now. Never a problem, works like new. Only thing is its size. The older ones were much larger than the newer ones but its the reliability that counts. If need be, we will definitely buy another Panasonic.
My Panasonic microwave is a good looking appliance and works effectively, although it uses a lot of power and I live off solar. The only real complaint I have is the keypad is not as touch sensitive or as easy to use as I would like. You really have to push hard and dead center to select your functions.
Panasonic 2.2 cu ft Microwave Model SD997S - We purchased the appliance in 2010 for our new house. It worked fine for 2 years and then the magnetron and inverter both failed. Fortunately they were both replaced under warranty and the microwave worked fine for another 3 years until the summer of 2015. Initially the units fuse blew and when that was replaced, it worked ok for another 2 months. The repair tech suggested we use a power bar to save the trouble of replacing the internal fuse. Now the the unit keeps popping the circuit breaker on the power bar at the P10 setting after about a minute of use. At a P8 setting the microwave will work for about 4 minutes before the circuit breaker on the power bar pops. At a setting of P5 the unit will work for 10 minutes. Not sure how much longer this microwave will last before it dies completely.
¬°Este microondas tiene un gran precio para un horno de 1100 vatios! Este microondas es f√°cil de limpiar, de tama√Īo compacto, muy espacioso, ¬°calienta maravillosamente! Me encantan los botones de inicio r√°pido en el panel t√°ctil. Las instrucciones son f√°ciles de leer. ¬°Siempre compro Panasonic por la longevidad de sus productos!
Panasonic microwave has self-timing or manual timing, a minute button which is used very often. The self-cook is easy to set and the food is perfect every time. Also, the cost was reasonable for this fine product. The microwave fits nicely on the countertop. It has a turntable which makes turning the container continually not necessary. It holds larger size containers which makes it easy to cook a goodly quantity of food. I do recommend Panasonic.
I am not normally able to use electronic equipment. Our Panasonic microwave is, for me very easy, whether I am warming coffee, cooking/ heating a meal, popping corn. I can thaw, reheat, cook & never burn the product. The directions are simple, easy to follow & as long as I cover what I am cooking, the cleanup is a breeze. The turntable guarantees even cooking. I recommend Panasonic Microwaves to anyone to everyone one. I am only 81 & I need easy!
Small size makes it perfect for condo living. Powerful enough to cover all needs for most people. Easy to clean. Design is sleek. Quiet when operating, makes it good for small places. Price was excellent. While I am not a big user of microwaves, it is one that has fulfilled all my needs.
This is no complaint. Just wanted to say as I was wiping out my microwave I realized that Ive had it almost 29 years. It is a Panasonic Genius Model NE 7960 and it has never needed a repair, looks as new as the day I bought it and I tell everyone how old it is. Used it with 3 children and now use it mostly to heat things and thaw things. Paid $350 for it which was a lot as I am a widow raising the children at the time. Ive been more than satisfied with it and would buy another if necessary. Thank you for an excellent product and others that my family have purchased.
I bought this Panasonic microwave a little over a year ago, and now when I put something in to heat it up, it wont turn on. I have to open the door and move the turntable inside, close the door and try again. Going to buy a different one today, as I dont trust this one to be safe now, and whatever I buy, will not be another Panasonic.
We have enjoyed the operation of our microwave, but slamming the door latch to get it to run is just UNACCEPTABLE. We have to slam it so hard, the unit moves back on the shelf every time. Guests are totally befuddled by it and this gives Panasonic a very bad name every time we have to explain what a poor job the engineers did. LOST SALES for Panasonic... which would make it worth their while to fix this for current customers or give us a huge discount on another item. Despite the warranty running out, I truly believe that this should be a recall by Panasonic.
What a waste of money! I used this microwave two or three times a week so was shocked when it stopped working completely yesterday... only a year and half after purchase!! Its completely dead and Panasonic says its beyond the one year warranty. What a piece of junk!! I will NOT be buying another Panasonic microwave.
Cooks evenly and correctly from directions. It has been very dependable for 15 years and still counting. It is. (the Genius Premier 1100w. It is an amazing microwave!)
Panasonic microwave NN-SN797S - We bought it at Costco after having returned the first one of its kind because the door was so incredibly hard to close. This one was slightly better but still very hard closing. The door interlock is on such flimsy metal that it bends when closing the door. The top latch in the door eventually snapped and the microwave stopped working. Its obviously a manufacturing defect, and from what Ive read here it is a common one for panasonic. We will NEVER buy another panasonic anything.
My Panasonic microwave starts on its own when you open the door. Zap! Panasonic says dont worry about it. Their suggestion: its not worth fixing. Buy a new one. Guess I will, but not one of theirs. Right?
Se abre y se cierra sin esfuerzo, a diferencia de muchos que hemos tenido. El panel t√°ctil es muy sensible y f√°cil de usar. El √ļnico inconveniente es que el TouchPad no es retroiluminado. No parece grande, pero tiene una gran capacidad, y amplias opciones de cocci√≥n. Es tan bueno como la unidad de trescientos d√≥lares que sustituy√≥. Nosotros pagamos 120 d√≥lares por ella.
Bought Panasonic Microwave in 2002, It stopped working Nov 2013. It worked perfectly all those years, so I purchased another Panasonic, like the old one except this one is the new model. It has a dial instead of buttons to set the cook time which for me is a good improvement. Have had it eleven months and then suddenly started to have a problem getting it to work. When I press the start button only the timer would rapidly count down. I found out from reviews on this site, that slamming the door might make it work. I did not slam the door but instead pushed on the middle of the door, rather than the lower right hand corner. Now by closing it this way it starts every time. I Have less than a month left on the warranty so I plan on having it looked at since it still goes berserk when I close the door from the right corner. I like this microwave but I would suggest that they make the door easier to close and make so that it make less noise when shut.
Ive never had any problems with this microwave in terms of cooking. It does a really great job! The one thing it does that drives me nuts is that the glass tray, when revolving, will sometimes hop off its track and keep the tray from turning properly. Its a little tricky to get it back in place.
I have had this microwave for 15 years and it still works great! It has various cooking options that I use regularly. I especially like the popcorn option. It never burns my popcorn. The defrost works great as well.
I bought this microwave 14 months ago and the power level button started working on its own a few days ago. The keypad would start beeping and changing levels without warning. The microwave is out of warranty by 60 days so after 14 months we are stuck buying a new microwave. After reading reviews online, I now realize this is common problem with Panasonic microwaves, so I will never buy another of this brand.
I have a microwave that is like brand new. I cannot use because the door and switch were defective and unfortunately I did not keep the receipt and Panasonic will not sell me the door so I can fix it...I will NEVER EVER BUY A PANASONIC PRODUCT EVER AGAIN and will urge others to stay away from Panasonic products because their customer service is a JOKE.
I have been looking at microwaves since mine went dead. I am still not really certain which one I want but I do like the size of the Panasonic. I have been waiting for a sale which will probably make up my mind.
First inverter top of the class microwave... ended up burning (flame) in the door. Called Panasonic (was 3.5 yrs old). They charged me 113$ to upgrade and have a NNST671S shipped. I only use my microwave 6 months a year. 5 yrs later... starts making noise. Yesterday heated leftover. When opening the door to get the food out the microwave continued working. Closed the door. Fast unplugged and felt outside of microwave. Extremely HOT!!! I am a lot confused... They say it is top of the class and that their products are reliable. Now... no microwave... no news from Panasonic. This is ridiculous.
My Panasonic microwave finally bit the dust. I dont blame the brand though as it was 15 years old. I plan to buy another panasonic since I have a trim kit that it must fit. I believe the sizing is still about the same on those microwaves.
I bought a Panasonic microwave from Canadian Tire and it broke after 31 days and they told me it was over the warranty that I would have to pay to repair it. I thought Panasonic was a better company.
SN661S - If anybodys thinking about buying a Panasonic microwave or any product from them BEWARE. Our microwave needed one repair under warranty and then needed the same repair 6 months later when it was out of warranty. The repair place wouldnt fix it and Panasonic wont replace. After 4 hrs on the phone over a 1 month period and getting a form from the repair company saying they wont fix the same repair twice, I finally gave up after an hour on the phone today. Ill never buy another Panasonic product as long as I live.
We bought this microwave at a Sams club in July of 2011. It started giving us trouble with the door switch in January of 2012. I contacted Panasonic customer service. I received the Sorry sir, but your warranty is expired excuse. I lost the receipt so I couldnt take it back to Sams. The problem is not so much the switches, but the poor design that Panasonic has. They have the entire switch assembly screwed to a flimsy piece of sheet metal which buckles under the stress of the door closing. This makes it where the switches never get tripped to complete the circuit for proper function. So we still have this piece of junk microwave and hope to replace it in the near future. Definitely not with a Panasonic, maybe a Kenmore. The one we had before this piece of crap lasted 10+ years.
I purchased a Panasonic Microwave Oven model number NN-SN7785S. I owned this microwave for a year and the door would not close properly. The latch would not catch. The latch finally broke so I contacted Panasonic and they said my unit was out of warranty. I would expect a microwave that I spent $160.00 on to last longer than $9.95 for them to assist me further. Why would I want to pay $9.95 for them to tell me that it is still out of warranty and then on top of that pay for the repair? Panasonic does not stand behind their products. I will never purchase another Panasonic product again and I have owned several in the past. I am very disappointed in this product. My advice to another consumer do not consider Panasonic for anything!!!
Gave trouble from the very start. Door was hard to close. Gradually got harder, had to almost slam it for microwave to work. Put up with it until after 5 yearsthe door latch finally broke. Was warrantied for 1 year. Didnt bother to have fixed, since it would cost more than it was worth. Was really disappointed in Panasonic since the first microwave I bought lasted 25 years. Will not buy another Panasonic ever. I got online and googled my microwave and found many others were having the very same problem I had.
After contacting Panasonic again in early August of 2013, a replacement microwave was delivered to my home around mid of August 2013. It is a refurbished microwave and an exact same model replacement. As of today, September 9, 2013, the replacement microwave has been working flawlessly. I hope it will stay that way for a while. Thanks Panasonic for the resolution, even though it took months and cost me a lot of time off from work and money as well. Most importantly, thanks to Consumer Affairs for the impact and effect that it has in this resolution.
I bought a Panasonic Inverter Microwave because Ive always found any Panasonic brand to be high quality. First off this microwave was so complex its not good for much beyond warming stuff up unless you want to run to the instruction manual every time you do more. Still overall I was satisfied until a couple of days ago. Almost every time you open the door it begins running without ever being turned on. My son joked it was like a ghost was haunting it & playing with us. Im extremely disappointed. A few years back I had a cheap microwave from Walmart that was much easier to work & lasted several years. I guess Panasonic has quit caring about quality so Ill quit buying anything from Panasonic.
We had moved two months ago and purchased a new Panasonic microwave. It worked fine and we liked it. But one morning it just didnt work anymore after 2 months. We called the company and without the receipt they wouldnt even talk to us. Very unhappy with quality of merchandise! Would never buy Panasonic anything again. Keeping all receipts from purchases from now on.
This microwave works really well. My food is always heated at a good speed and heated fully. It also does really well when using directions from food packages on how long to put stuff in. That is why I bought this microwave because it is the standard 1200 Watt.
In October 2014 I purchased a Panasonic microwave model NN-SA661S. Went to warm up a bag of popcorn this morning and the inside caught fire... The bag of popcorn was fine and unpopped but now the right side of my microwave is burnt up. Still under 1 year warranty. Called to file claim and was told they will get back to me within 24 hours...
The microwave will not power on and it is still in the warranty period.
Panasonic microwave sa651se purchased from Costco on 3/2/15. It lasted 2 days before not powering up. Check of reviews showed that this is a huge problem with these units. Will return and buy something else.
I bought my Panasonic microwave about four years ago and had no problems until today when we were using it. The thing started smoking bad with a burnt smell. I opened it up and the inside started on fire. I would like Panasonic to replace it. There should be a class action lawsuit against Panasonic. This is dangerous and a fire hazard.
In late April of 2016, I was starting to experience problems with my eight year old microwave. My previous three microwaves lasted for thirty five years (none of them a Panasonic). In doing my due diligence, I found that the inverter technology was the way to go, and that Panasonic manufactured a state of the art product. I purchased the Panasonic inverter model # nn-sn933b for slightly less than $200.00. For the first three or so months, the product worked as described, but soon after, the food was not heating evenly on the high (fixed) power setting. Instant oatmeal was pouring over the sides of the bowl. I compensated for the heating problem by using lower power settings, and cooking/Warming food for longer periods of time. In using the popcorn setting for full size bags of popcorn, I needed to turn off the microwave with fifteen seconds left on the timer, otherwise the bag, and its contents would burn. One time, the bag actually caught fire. Yesterday (7/11/17), I opened the microwave door to take out my lunch, and upon closing the door, the microwave lost all power. When I called the phone number on the owners manual, I listened to a recording which stated that if my product was out of warranty, I would have to pay $9.95 to speak to a representative about my problem. These people put out a garbage product, and then have the audacity to charge a fee to discuss their problematic trash. Anyone buying a Panasonic product after reading my comments, along with those of other consumers who were taken by this company, will indeed deserve exactly what they get.
My mother passed away almost a year ago. In clearing her home, we kept her microwave. A Panasonic inverter model NN-S443WF. Fast forward to this morning at about 5 am... Something (God) woke me about 4:40 am and would not let me go back to sleep. So I got up. My hubby is naturally an early riser, so he, too was awake. I began mulling about the kitchen, about to start making breakfast for my hubby & 3 children (soon to be 4). I smelled this awful burning plastic smell... Started investigating. Saw an outlet that had burn/smoke marks on it, and felt the plug in it (my moms microwave). It was scalding! I quickly unplugged it, but watched to make sure. White smoke began coming from the plug holes.I yelled for my husband, who ran to the breaker box and started flipping switches until we found the right one. Even then, I stood watch over the outlet with the fire extinguisher. Thank goodness for quick thinking, and God not letting me sleep! I dont know if my hubby wouldve caught it in time, as he was conducting business on the computer. We actually lost our home 4 years ago to an electrical fire, after the house was hit by lightning in the middle of the night... We got ourselves, our then 4 yr old daughter, and not even 2 month old son out safely, but we lost everything. This really has me on edge today. Please, be careful with this model. I know its an older one, but it shouldnt cause a fire as the first symptom of something wrong with it!
We wanted a compact microwave that doesnt take up too much counter space. But as a result, our larger dinner plates dont allow the turntable to spin, so we must always remember to reverse the turntable so that we dont wreck the motor. Price to pay for compactness I guess. The spinner dial to set the time is a nice touch.
This is a great microwave. Its three years old. Turbo defrost inverter system. Its the NN-SN778 model. Has all the good presets like for popcorn setting, sensor reheat, sensor cook and many other great features. I bought it at Walmart. It was under two hundred dollars. A great value.
NN-SN778 - First hint, crashed our WIFI router whenever it was activated, not a good sign. At 6 months funny smell (burned paint as it turned out). After looking, door was starting to arc and burn around the edges in three places, mostly the lower edge. Took it out of service and called Panasonic. Both recommended service groups declined to work on it even though it was still under warranty. Could not find another repair person close enough to justify travel cost. The higher power 1250W obviously has multiple problem as described here in this blog. As a science person, I really like the much lower weight of the inverter system, very impressive. Now, if they could get the bugs out of the system without losing more customers, that would be very, very impressive.Our last microwave was a Kenmore, almost 30 years old, and still works (except for occasionally programming itself! I could build a replacement controller but dont have the time.) The Panasonic has numerous advantages, the higher power was great for casseroles where long thaw times were needed, cut that down to minutes. Im guessing the main problem is harmonics and operating frequency. The space between door parts was quite small and yet the gap arced despite what looked like correct grounding and spacing, etc.
I bought this microwave NN-SA661S at Walmart in Leominster MA. while visiting my family in 2015. I only heat food in it. After about 1 year it started to get somewhat rusty inside and it has progressed to very rusty. I have never had a microwave that turned rusty before‚€¶ It heats fine when I use it but it looks like it belongs in the landfill‚€¶ I am concerned with the rusting. What has happened to my microwave? I dont think I will buy a Panasonic again... Not a good product for the long haul! Of course I no longer have my receipt which is a shame. I just wanted you to know about my experience with this microwave.
As I read all the comments/reviews out loud, my husband is trying to fix the door on our Panasonic Inverter Microwave. We have the same problem as most consumers... the door latch. It wont engage and other times the microwave continues to run when the door is open. Its two years old. My brother and his wife had the other problem... they had a ghost! The microwave would turn on itself. My sister-in-law went online to discover what everyone else seems to know now. This is a dangerous product. Fearing their house would burn down when they werent home, she called Sears (the place of purchase) to express her concerns. Sears told her to pick out any microwave she wanted and they would cover the cost. Kudos to Sears! After reviewing all the comments, I have to wonder what it will take before there is a recall on this very dangerous appliance. As I finish this comment, my husband has given up his efforts. He says keeping this piece of junk isnt worth losing our house or worse.
It is great. It heats up so fast, anything 1 or 2 minutes and food tastes great. I found this deal on a microwave and its very nicely made. It stands out and looks good on the counter.
Absolutely love the Inverter series of Panasonic microwaves. We have always used two in this house for more than a dozen years, and have had the same broken door spring issue repeatedly on every one. Our favorite model is NN-SN942 series, which includes NN-SN968. Our last 2 pair have been NN-SN942B, but we quit buying anything Panasonic. No matter how many times we attempt to write or have made calls, the issue is never resolved.I am holding the Operating Instructions for our last two in my hand. Each was bought for $20 off the regular $169 price at Target on November 29, 1914. We replaced each broken door spring by ordering from Panasonic. We have replaced the springs twice. One broke in January and one broke this June. So now two beautiful units are the dump because we envision no end to the Panasonic problem. Spending $398 and repairing 4 times for 2 units in just over 3 years is ridiculous, as well as unnecessarily hard on the environment. When one spring breaks, I have to run downstairs to use my sons unit and he runs up here when his spring quits. We order two and start over. But over the years, the springs have progressively lasted a shorter time. Our units look like new.When functioning, they are wonderful. But no one at Panasonic cares to hear about the defect. Last week, our units went to the dump. The glass inserts are going with our instruction booklets with purchase receipts taped inside to Goodwill, in hopes that someone needs one. Very many Panasonic control panels are the same, with the same instructions. The spring is our only issue.
My Panasonic NN-ST642W microwave works ok to good.. but my dilemma is when it is running it cuts off my wifi connection from the other room through the house past the kitchen. Is my microwave leaking waves? Cant see it or feel it.. but my smartphone knows... Ideas? Time for a new one or just wrap it up in aluminum foil??
