NN-SE982S is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Look no farther! Best microwave EVER! Instead of turning power on and off for lower power settings, it actually reduces the power and doesn't turn on and off. This is great for more delicate items that tend to cook too much or explode. It also has a keep warm setting that lets you put food on hold without over cooking. It's large interior allows a 13" x 9" casserole dish to fit comfortably. I sold my first one when I remodeled my kitchen and got a Kitchenaid micr/convection combo built-in that matched the oven next to it. It was about $1800 and quit working after 16 months ( 1 year warranty). It was deemed unrepairable. I bought another Panasonic Inverter. I hadn't realized how much I missed it. Purchased the trim kit to make it built-in and it looks great!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great gift This was a gift from my sister when she found out out old microwave oven had given out. The unit is smaller than our old one but the interior capacity is greater. We like the look of the exterior. We are still getting used to the dial versus buttons but overall like this oven.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this Microwave We recently ordered the 1250W 2.2 Cu. Ft. Convertible Microwave NN-SE982S microwave directly from Panasonic and are very happy with it. It looks good and is very spacious. The dial is so much easier to use than punching in numbers. The Sensor Cook feature is really nice, it cooked a whole sweet potato to perfection. So far we are very satisfied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product, Features and Value We had an old Quasar Microwave Convection oven that was 22 years old and was finally ready to be replaced. We didn't use the Convection part so we looked for a replacement that was similar in size and features without the convection option. This and the model just below this were the two we narrowed our search to. We chose this one, as the selector dial did not protrude from the front panel. This has not disappointed us. The oven size, even with the turntable, allows for family sized cookware to be used. It took a bit to get used to the touch wheel, but once you get used to it it is easy and very intuitive. We love it and hope to get a good run of time with this microwave.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Panasonic/Inverter ever We're loving our new microwave. Have had an Inverter before so that's not new. (As always, we love the smooth cooking... oatmeal is right every time.) This new unit gives us more: - defrosting that actually works - easier no-moving-parts setup. The electronic touch-dial is very very nice. (Hint: spin at the edge for slow increase... spin near the middle for fast!) My only wish... when spinning through the genius sensor cooking choices... it would help if it listed the meaning of the current number.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but not long lasting This is my fourth Panasonic. The first one was in the 80s! That was a workhorse and lasted until I gave it away when I moved. After that, they just aren't built to last more than a few years. My problem with the last unit was the latch. When it stops working correctly, the unit won't run. Unfortunately the current units still have the same latch. Most manufacturers are using the same type of latch. So since I know and like the features of a Panasonic, there is no sense in changing brands because of the latch.

  • What should I check if my microwave stops working?
    Check the fuse/circuit breaker for the outlet to see if it has been tripped or blown. Check other outlets to see if there is a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupt) outlet that is on the same circuit as the outlet used for the unit and see if it needs to be reset. Connect the oven to another outlet to see if unit is still operational. If the unit is still not working, please contact a local authorized servicer for diagnosis and repair.

  • What should I do if my microwave display is not working?
    Check to make sure unit is plugged into a working outlet by plugging in another device to determine if power is available at the receptacle.
    If power is not available at the outlet check your fuse/circuit breaker, panel.

    Note: Newer homes/buildings are generally wired with GFI (Ground Fault Interrupt) receptacles, if your building is equipped with GFI receptacles be sure to check if the circuit breaker directly on the receptacle has been tripped and requires reset.

    If you determine the outlet has power but the microwave still is not functioning, contact a local Panasonic authorized servicer for repair.
