Panasonic 2.2 cu ft Microwave Model SD997S - We purchased the appliance in 2010 for our new house. It worked fine for 2 years and then the magnetron and inverter both failed. Fortunately they were both replaced under warranty and the microwave worked fine for another 3 years until the summer of 2015.initially the unit's fuse blew and when that was replaced, it worked ok for another 2 months. The repair tech suggested we use a power bar to save the trouble of replacing the internal fuse. Now the the unit keeps popping the circuit breaker on the power bar at the P10 setting after about a minute of use. At a P8 setting the microwave will work for about 4 minutes before the circuit breaker on the power bar pops. At a setting of P5 the unit will work for 10 minutes. Not sure how much longer this microwave will last before it dies completely.
