Question about Microwave Ovens
Unplug It? Thanks, the smartest answer I could get. Now is save to trow in the Garbage and buy new one. You just save my life !!!!!!!! Thanks Man
That last "solution" must have come from a bored student on early Christmas break. I've reported it as abuse of the system.
You have a failed membrane keypad.
Due to expansion and contraction at different temperatures, it is still intermittent, but it may fail "hard" and not work at all.
This can be a dangerous fire risk if it should begin to run by itself while unattended, so I'd leave the door open or leave it unplugged until it is repaired.
If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
You can find Panasonic parts distributors in Canada here.
If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs, which in this case would run about $60 if we can get the proper version keypad.
Since you're in Canada, there would be an extra shipping charge of $15 if we do the work.
If you would prefer to have a local Canadian servicer handle it for you, you can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.
Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
