Useful but not very durable

I bought this product about 2 years ago. It served us well in the time we had it. Then one evening, while microwaving some food I realized that the food was not heating up and there was a peculiar burnt plastic smell. When I put my hand on the microwave door it was extremely hot and the food was cold. Tried to heat more food but realized that parts of the microwave were heating up instead of the food. Very disappointed with how it suddenly broke down in such a dangerous manner. I give it 2 stars because of it worked well when operational but broke down suddenly in a dangerous way...

Does not last much longer than warranty

Bought this a couple of years ago. Was okay for a cheap microwave, didn't always cook consistently through (cold spots) but enough power for what a small family needed. Just this past weekend it RUNS WHEN I OPEN THE DOOR every time. I have to quickly take out or put in the food I want to cook/heat so as not to expose myself to the radiation. Told a co-worker and she said their Panasonic did the same thing and they had to toss theirs. Will not buy this brand again.

Failed after 2 years.

Ours just stopped working entirely after about 2 years. It produced a plastic burning smell and displayed the H98 error code. If a brand name such as this does not last very long, I plan to buy the cheapest microwave I can find and hope for the best. It can't last much less than this did.

Not great

Seemed to work ok but I always had to move the food around to get things heated properly. The door is hard to close and you have to push it hard, which makes a loud bang. Today I accidentally lightly tapped the edge of the glass on the door when removing a plate and the whole thing shattered. What a surprise. I won't buy it again.

Door malfuctions

After a while the door, if not slammed, prevents the microwave from working Apparently similar issues on other Panasonic.

This was the second unit of this type that we bought. The first one lasted 5 years and then became defective. The second one (bought 2 years ago) was clearly more cheaply built. Door latch was poorly crafted and difficult to close; only a single cog on the roller (glass was clearly built to receive 3). Operation was fine, as expected. Six months ago, the clock display ceased working. Three weeks ago the interior light bulb burned out. Yesterday the whole heating system failed. This unit was used on average twice per day. The unit outlived its warrantee, but barely. Maybe this was just a lemon, but I don't plan to buy another Panasonic like this.

Panasonic not what it used to be

Bought this model to replace the Panasonic microwave bought in 1992 (which was still working). The first one we brought home had a defective door. The 2nd one had a better door but had to slam it to shut. The icing on the cake was 7 months later the wave guard caught fire. Eventually we just returned it and bought a Breville.

Panasonic 1.2 cu ft NNST651W

The features of this microwave are very good and it heats very well . However, the microwave is very loud. At least twice as loud as our last Panasonic microwave. Also, instead of providing space in width of the oven space it is provided in height, which limits the size of plate or tray you can place int the microwave.
