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.

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 a Panasonic inverter microwave, and swear by its great Features. So easy to clean, as it is all stainless steel. It is 4yrs old, and still looks like new. Never had any problems with it. I think that cleaning it regularly is the key to its longevity. I am in the UK, so we use 240 volts. I write this review as I am extremely pleased with my purchase, and highly recommend this product. I hope this is of some help to folk who may wish to purchase this product.

Ordered my Panasonic microwave (NN-SN651W) the 24th of May, 2017. Was not home to use it for over two weeks. It started overheating in less than 2 months. It has plenty of space around it, so that is not the problem. Overstock will give me a credit. Will not order another Panasonic.

I have had the Genius 1250 Microwave for many years and had been happy with its performance. It cooks normally and the turntable stops rotating and the light goes out at the end of cooking. However, when you open the door, the light goes on and the turntable starts rotating again even though the microwave is not cooking. I suspect it is a bad door switch or failed mounting of a door switch. I have heard of this problem but dont know how common this failure is. It is out of warranty.

I bought a Panasonic Microwave model NN-DS596B model from John Lewis in Aug
I bought a Panasonic Microwave model NN-DS596B model from John Lewis in August 2017 with a two-year warranty. Expensive £305! I have discovered that it does not cook the food evenly. Rang John Lewis and was asked to contact Panasonic who gave me a case ID number. Their only nominated service centre DK AVS took two weeks to collect it and told me it takes about 4 days. Since then I have contacted DK AVS 6 times (each call takes around 35 to 45 minutes for a response) with promise to come back each time by the end of the day but never came back to me. Out of exasperation, I contacted Panasonic customer services and spoke to 4 staff again with the same response will get back to me by end of day after contacting DK AVS. By this time and eight weeks without the microwave, I raised a complaint to Panasonic on their web page and as per experiences of other people contact was not received after 2 days. At this stage, I sent them John Lewis receipt for a refund. Finally, received response from a manager at Panasonic but have told them that I have waited long enough and have bought a new microwave (not Panasonic). A response by email at last from the manager at Panasonic that DK AVS have found nothing wrong with the microwave and nothing more could be done. Interestingly, as the microwave is still with DK AVS. It is now 3 months since my first contact with John Lewis, I called and spoke to customer services who have reinvestigated and escalated the case, I quote” I want to let you know that I have escalated the case with your situation to our Head Office so the Service Centre will send the unit back to you as soon as possible.” This beggar’s belief that I have been without a microwave for 3 months and now they have found nothing wrong (i.e. uneven cooking) and will return the microwave as soon as possible! Maybe in 12 month’s time! I think small court is justified with this to get a refund and post this on review sites. DON’T BUY PANASONIC AND DON’T USE DK AVS FOR ANY SERVICING. I HAVE BOUGHT A MIELE AND EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH IT!

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 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.

I purchased a Panasonic Microwave Inverter 3 years ago. The cavity vent has started to rust. Now, it turns out it might be toxic. They offered me a small cash settlement. They are nasty, and I want to make sure that no one buys the microwave, because I have emails that tell me it is probably toxic. The rust is falling on our food. I cannot believe they are so stupid as to put that is toxic in an email. But they did and were nasty and told me it was my fault. Before you think Panasonic for anything, remember the products are bad and the service is worse.

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.

Brand new Panasonic microwave NN-ST66KW and the keypad works most of the time. But when it decides not to work doesnt matter how hard you push, where you push or what finger you use it just will not accept an entry. Then it will start working again by some sort of magic. Even more frustrating is trying to contact Panasonic to find out if there is a solution. No phone numbers listed anywhere and sending message on their website results in a computer generated email response listing many things you could do but having no connection to your problem at all. And this new unit was a replacement for one that suddenly went up in smoke 2 months after the one year warranty expired on the last one. I will not be buying Panasonic 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.

Panasonic 2.2 cu ft Microwave Model SD997S - We purchased the appliance in
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.

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.

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!

After about 9 months of use our Panasonic Microwave Model NN-SN966S failed to remain on. About 2 seconds into the power on the display went dead and the unit would not power up or perform until the power plug was removed from the wall and then plugged in 30 seconds later. Then the same problem occurred after the start button was pressed. Well, I tried unsuccessfully to get Panasonic to repair or replace the unit still under the 1 year warranty to no avail. They kept giving me the runaround; first repair place (PE Americas) didnt work on microwaves; try panacare.us@panasonic.com they said. So, I got nowhere with them either. They sent me to a place 80 miles from here and they too dont repair Panasonic microwaves. I gave up. They dont stand behind their warranty and their product doesnt last long.

I purchase the Panasonic Genius Model NNT945SF Microwave a little over a year ago. Within 6 months, the door would not shut without slamming it. I noticed that the Microwave interfered with my WiFi about this time. At approximately 1 year, the digital screen went blank. I went to Panasonics website and found the local authorized repair shop: Electronic Specialists, 300 Commercial Dr., Fairfield, OH, 45014. The proprietor, John Raymer, diagnosed the problem by phone and said it was the door latch causing the screen to stop working. For $45 he said he would fix the microwave. I asked if the door was not the problem, what then? He said, for $45 he would fix the microwave, no matter what the problem was, and has a 3-month warranty on repairs. I met him at his shop on 11/23/13, which has no set times to be open, and delivered my microwave. I picked it up on 11/26/13, again I had to schedule a meeting by phone. The microwave door was hard to close. It no longer interfered with WiFi. The repair lasted about a week before the screen started going blank again. I scheduled a meeting and returned it. He apologized and said it was mistakenly sent out before being repaired. I was to meet him on 12/6/13 but he never returned calls to confirm a meeting. He didnt return any calls until I called Panasonic directly. Finally he called and said it was repaired. My wife picked it up on 12/16/13. Five days later the screen went blank again. It happened intermittently for a while. It also interferes with WiFi again. But Electronic Specialists no longer answers my call. I again contacted Panasonic USA by phone. I have had to contact them repeatedly and repeat the same approximately 20 times. They forward the information UP TO A MANAGER, who doesnt call back. I finally spoke to Basil. Panasonic denies any responsibility, since it is not a warranty repair. I said they are responsible because I would NEVER have gone to Electronic Specialists if their web-site hadnt directed me there, as their local authorized repair center.Basil told me my microwave was repaired. He did give me an address to MAIL a request for assistance to Panasonic USA (which I only assume is their next line of misdirection and run-a-round). Since the time I spoke to Basil, microwave has completely quit working. It is 1/9/14 and still only about 1 and 1/2 months into my THREE-MONTH WARRANTY from Electronic Specialists. Of that time, the Microwave only worked correctly about 8-10 days. I also wonder if I have been exposed to microwave radiation leaking out of the door of this unit for about 6 months.

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.

My Panasonic SN7979 is a little over 5 years old. And not one year after the 5-year warranty on the magnetron tube did the microwave stop working. Shuts off after a few seconds and smells of burned plastic and overheated electronics. I cannot be confident that I would want something fixed that burns plastic parts internally and is a fire hazard. The one year warranty on parts is certainly not applicable in fixing it if something like the power supply--transformer or large capacitor is bad. Also, labor is always an expense factor in repairing it at the service center. Might as well consider it a bad decision to purchase a Panasonic Microwave Oven, cut my losses by tossing it and buying a new one by another manufacturer other than Panasonic!

I called Panasonic and was told that I need to take it to a repair shop but I said this is a microwave not a TV and I dont want some TV repairman working on it and then bring it home and have it catch fire in the middle of the night, or leak radiation to which she replied that is your choice. So I took it to the curb and will never purchase another Panasonic product.

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.

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.

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).

I purchased a Panasonic microwave NN-SD698S fifteen months ago. It stopped working with an H98 error. I E-mailed Panasonic. They replied to contact the authorized service. The service person said it would be a $225 job. I called panasonic. They said sorry, you are out of warranty. I asked for a supervisor. They put me on a lengthy hold three times, then said all supervisors were busy, they would call back within 48 hours. I insisted on waiting. A supervisor suddenly came in two minutes. The suggestion was to buy a new one. This is legal stickup! How could the authorities allow companies to violate consumers like this, especially when so many have had similar issues with Panasonic microwaves, is beyond me. This affects our society, because the ripple affect is that a ripped off person rips off another person to compensate, and this transcends into a degraded society.

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 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.

Two independent tests showed door leaking radiation above federal standards. Panasonic customer service said no one but their factory could test and besides they NEVER found any leaks unless door damaged. Door confirmed undamaged by local appliance co. that services high end microwaves (not Panasonic). Even their local warranty service can not test, must be returned to factory and they already said no problem exists!! Do not buy and stay back two feet if using any of their microwaves.

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 $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.

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!

Panasonic NN-SF550W: I was heating some vegetables while I was in another room. I smelt an acrid, burning chemical smell and saw clouds of smoke pouring out of my kitchen. I had to go through the smoke which irritated my eyes to turn the microwave off. I then had to take it outside. The smoke was coming out from behind the keypad and lower portion of the microwave on the same side was too hot to touch. I immediately emailed Panasonic to report the fault and asked for safety data information in regard to the smoke as the smell, its effect on me and the inability to remove the smell suggested it may be hazardous. I received a phone call from Panasonic in regard to the email. They asked what I was heating, what container I was using etc apparently overlooking the details of my email. The customer service officer then asked me to return it to a Panasonic customer service centre. I responded that they could send a courier to which they declined. I received an email from them the same day requesting purchasing information and for me to return the appliance to them. I noted that if they assessed it and determined it wasnt a fault I would have to pay for the assessment. No apology for their product smoking out my kitchen, no safety data sheets, no concern for my health or exposure to whatever the smoke was that their product produced. I will not be purchasing another Panasonic product and will have it assessed by an INDEPENDENT professional before approaching Panasonic again.

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.

They said they could direct me to a repair dealer where I would have to pay to fix it. Or I could just buy a new one. I said this is posted all over the internet. This is a manufacturing defect. They said this is the first they have heard of it. Yeah right! Way to stand by your product and brand name. I will be purchasing a new microwave and I guarantee you it wont be Panasonic.

Updated on 06/22/2020: The Invertor Technology works well until it doesn’t. 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’t working. Called nearest authorized repair center 130 miles. “Can’t help you”. 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 “Steve” read from scripts, wasn’t very articulate and simply offered platitudes and apologies. Kept going around in circles. Asked for contact with someone in the States. His response: “Is there anything else I can help you with.” Wrote back, “Yes, you can answer the questions I just posed.” I ended telling “Steve,” It’s 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’t entertain the idea of sending a magnetron so I could have it done locally. But it’s 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’t matter to them. I purchased a Panasonic radio that I’ve had for over 55 years and it works perfectly.Panasonic was known as the most reliable name in electronic products. It’s shameful that the CEO’s of Panasonic’s 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.

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.

We bought our Panasonic inverter (NN-SD691S) from Costco less than 2 (app 20 months) years ago. The microwave stopped working completely. Initially it just started as light are on at times and are off at times, then after 6 months, another new problem began; it still keeps on working while it is open. We have to put things on revolving plates. After 2 weeks it completely stopped working. We dont have any warranty, so I guess I will not buy Panasonic again. We had a Danby microwave once and used it for more than 5 years without any issues, replaced it with a stainless steel one. If anyone have any connection problems in the warranty period please do get it fixed before it dies on you.

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 bought this microwave about 4 years ago at a Walmart. I remember declining the extended warranty on it at time of purchase. Anyway just started having the same door latch problem everyone else had. When you shut the door the light stays on, you slam the door and it goes off, but when you put the cook time in and press start, nothing happens. Slam the door again and it works. I was just going to put it on the curb for garbage pickup, however, I decided to take it apart and see what the problem was. After removing the impossible screws on the case, I discovered that the latch mechanism, which is mounted to a very weak piece of metal, was bent over which caused all the problems. I bent it back and put a piece of metal wire from the bottom screw to a machined hole that is above the latch mechanism to give it additional support. It works so far. Seems like the issue is a poor design flaw with the mount like the previous posts have written. Not mad, just glad I didnt throw it away.

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.

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.

Well, I bought my microwave about 2 years ago but the inside is small and it doesnt get the meals very hot in the medium. I cant say all of them are like mine but thats what I feel. And another thing is the way you defrosted the beef, got cooked in the outside. That I dont like but for other things is very good.

Doesnt hold the time you set. Doesnt heat up a cup of coffee. Very weak power. My old Panasonic microwave was easy to use. This one is junk. Very hard to read the screen. I dont understand selling junk.

Panasonic inverter microwave model NNSA651S SA651S - Weve owned this microwave for a short time. We started noticing uneven cooking. Then today we started smelling a burning odor. The microwave was burning through a bacon plate (very thick material) made for microwaves and char-burned the bacon that almost burst into flames. This happened in less than a minute. DO NOT PURCHASE THIS MICROWAVE.

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...

This is probably one of the best microwave on the market. I have had this microwave about 10 years and Ive had absolutely no problems. They make a great product. Size, performance, convenience and price that was paid is probably one of the best around. I would recommend this product to anyone and I would buy another one. I know availability is still there.
