Panasonic microwave inverter h98 error
If there is H98 on the display, not unlikely, the magnetron, control panel or inverter is down. This requires professional technical help. Please, do not try to fix it on your own, because there are dangerously high voltages in the system.
Panasonic microwave error code h97
Thias error code may signify four things
- Magnetron tube failure
- Faulty high Voltage Inverter board
- Faulty control board
- Poor or loose wiring
Warning: inverters use and produce potentially lethal voltages. Please, do not try to repair it yourself unless you are a professional technician!
If you see the h97 fault code, be ready to face an inverter board problem.
Most likely, there is an issue in the high voltage inverter board or Magnetron DPC board. There could be a connection problem between these two boards. Please, check all wires and connections and make sure there are no loose ones.
Inverter board failures are often caused by the Magnetron failing. In this case, both elements need to be replaced.
This can be pretty frustrating, because the whole thing will cost you $200 or so, and you won’t do without professional help. Please, do not try to fix high-voltage elements on your own! Not unlikely, buying a new microwave will cost you less.
Other error codes
The error codes that appear on the display help you locate the failed microwave oven element. You can eliminate some of the causes yourself, using the tips from the table below. Complicated breakdowns require a call to a service center.
|CODE||PROBLEM||WHAT TO DO|
|F01||Too high temperature of exhausted air||The oven shuts off automatically. Disconnect the power cord from the wall socket. The oven beeps continuously and resets for operation when cool. Move the oven to the cooler location. If the problem persists, call service agent.|
|Overcooked tood Temperature of exhaust air too high||Press STOP/RESET Pad to stop beep. Unplug oven and wait al least 30 minutes before reconnecting. Wait for oven to cool down and reset. If a flame is present, do nol open oven door. If normal operation does not resume, call the service aoent with intormation of failure code|
|F03||Incoming line voltage too high.||Check line voltage and that voltage adjustment is matched.|
|F04||Incoming line voltage too low.||If the line voltage is other than 208 or 230 - 240 V, consult electrician to check outlet.|
|F05||Defective memory IC||If the problem persists, call service agent. The oven will operate even if Failure Code appears, just not as designed. Call service agent. If the problem occurs during memory heating, press Stop/Reset pad. Then other memory program and manual heating will be possible|
|F33-34||Defective thermistor circuit||The oven shuts off automatically. If the problem persists, call service agent.|
|Detective sensor circuit||Unplug the oven and wait more than 10 seconds betore reconnecting|
|F44||Defective control panel||The oven shuts off automatically. If the problem persists, call service agent.|
|F81-82||Defective relay circuit||If the problem persists, call service agent. The oven will operate even if Failure Code appears, just not as designed. Call service agent. Press Stop/Reset pad and try again.|
|F86-87||Defective relay circuit||The oven shuts off automatically. If the problem persists, call service agent.|
