- Watch this video. I give my wife all the credit for finding it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rc7hdGpJQzs
- Go to Lowe's and get a package of fuses. You only need 20A, but you have to buy a package with 1 - 10A, 2 - 15A, and 2-20A. Also pick up what's called a "Tamper Proof Torx Bit". Apparently Panasonic doesn't want you to fix your own appliances. Little do they know. When you finally find these custom Torx bits, you have 5 different sixes to pick from ranging from $3 to $6 dollars. So you look at them, pick the one that looks the right size (Cost $6.00), and check out.
- Get home and find that the Torx bit is too big. Return the too big bit to Lowe's and purchase the next two smaller sizes. One doesn't want to run back to Lowe's even though it's only 5 minutes away (used to be 45 minutes one way).
- Get home and find those two Torx bits are still too big for the screws. It's not like you can take a screw out and take it with you. Return the two bits to Lowe's. The lady at the return desk is now calling you by name.
- Buy the other three sizes in hopes that one will fit. You can always take the other two back.
- You find one that works, remove all the screws, and replace the 20A fuse.
- Put the case back on, plug in the microwave (stand a safe distance away just in case), and shazam, a working microwave.
I feel fishing is in my future, sometime.
