Hi,

I have a Panasonic Inverter microwave and it seems to shut off after 3 seconds. The light comes on, but the turn table does not seem to move as well as the microwave makes no noise, making me believe the magnetron is not kicking in.

After reading many post online I heard it could be due to the fact the magnetron is leaking RF, and I have taken out the control panel and tilted a bit as some said that worked for them but it still does not work.

I still think it might be the magnetron but i dont know if it is 100% cause of this issue, and do not want to possibly waste an investment on a new one. If anyone can point me too what other problems may cause this or another way to test if the magnetron is the root problem, it would be much appreciated.

Thank you in advance

Solved it, For those who are wondering what it was it turned out to be a slightly charred connector on the upper interlock switch
