My microwave says "child" and won't play anymore
Not sure of the TT series models but for the NN series models the procedure is as follows:-
If "Child" is displayed in the display window, then the child safety lock is on.
To remove the child safey lock, press the "Stop/Reset" button 3 times in fairly short succession (less than 3 seconds). The time of day or just the Colon sign (:) is then displayed
If you later want to apply the Child safety lock, then, when the time of day (or colon sign) is displayed, press "Start" 3 times (again in short succession).
Hope this helps

The door latch won't close. The light stays on.
The problem is an engineering defect. The mechanism that engages the door latch is mounted to a steel plate that is "L" shaped and when you close the door it pushes against and bends this plate out of position. After a while the metal plate fatigues and stays bend out of position and the door stops engaging and locking so the two safety switches inside don't get depressed. Result door won't lock and light stays on. I had to re-engineer it by cutting the tube of a pen to size and placing it in as a support bracket to put pressure on the plate so it won't bend anymore. My wife was going to throw it in the trash. Note of caution: I did cut my hand in several places trying to get the bottom cover on and off the microwave as the metal edges are razor sharp!!! I love this microwave it is my second one.

How does one replace the light bulb in the Panasonic NN-T990SA countertop microwave?
you have to remove the plug and then the outer casewhich is 4-5 screws on the back,you will find a air duct on the left hand side of the magnetron which is a metal box with two wires on the bottom.the bulb hosing is kept in with a screw and a metal tab,undo the screw and remove the two wires and that is the unit you have to replace,it is called a cap less bulb as it is one unit,reassembly is the reverse.hope this helps regards les

The power just went off. tried unplug for 20 secs and plug again. tried the braker and plug. still nothing
Plug a lamp into the wall receptical, if it works! the main fuse in the microwave has blown. Unplug, and remove the top "several screws" check under the keypad and follow wires to the circuit board, look for a silver rectangular capacitor, take a screw driver and short the two points to remove any residual voltage. Now look for a small fuse "clipped" pop with screwdriver and replace with the same current rating, assemble unit because lethal voltages are present when powered on.

My timer stops after 5
Since no model number was posted, I have to give a general answer.
Since it was posted under Panasonic, I'll assume it's a Panasonic.See if one of these describes
If so, see
in time, push start and unit runs
for 2 seconds, relay clicks, unit goes off. Cook time on display goes
off and clock time comes back. Bad upper interlock switch and charred
the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback
signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will
stop the cook cycle.
It may be a loose connection in the wiring between the
inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of
components has failed.
it stops after 7 seconds, it has a problem with the inverter.
Due to the lethal
voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an
inexperienced person work on these.
