Display too dim

Can’t read the display seems to be no way to make it brighter. We have natural light in our room. Taking the microwave back. Show details

We have difficulty reading the control panel and looking at what is cooking,

The unit works fine but reading the control panel is very difficult because it is black. Likewise looking through the glass door.
Seems most Panasonic microwaves are the same but I do not know why they design something like that?

It's been good since I bought it 4 years ago

It's been good since I bought it 4 years ago. It doesn't have a rotating platter, and evidently doesn't need one. It works just fine. It does have a cooldown cycle, which is a little bit noisy when it finishes cooling, but that's fine.

It looks good too. Show details ·  1

Would not touch this model

Heating takes much longer than another other microwave due to flatbed , it is very noisy and has a cool down cycle at end which is confusing as it sounds like microwave is still cooking. The microwave is very dark inside so impossible to ever monitor food cooking. The door mechanism is poor design that makes a large clunky sound, made of plastic and requires a firm pressure to close so consequently breaks easy. Our model only lasted 2yrs in our beach house with very minimum use.i have noticed in stores they add grease to inside mechanism of this model so it feels lighter and easy to close door. This has made me more convinced the stores know there is a problem with door mechanism. Show details

Okay microwave, but can't see what's cooking

My main problem with this microwave is that even though it has an internal light that is on while cooking, you can't actually see in side because it's too dark. Can't see if something is over-boiling etc. Seems like poor design to me. Wanting to see inside, am I expecting too much?

I contacted Panasonic and here is their explanation

"There is no issue with the light inside the microwave.
It is operating as intended.
The light is there as a cosmetic design and it purpose is to let you know there is something inside of the microwave.
It is an LED light without a diffuser. This means that the light from the LED will shine more in one direction. " Show details

Panasonic Microwave

Just purchased a Panasonic inverter Microwave and couldn't be happier with this product.
Have looked at many Microwaves and found this one to be the best value for money.
It's easy to use and no problems to clean. Show reply

Great Microwave and so much more space

Loved this microwave in the shop when we saw it. It has no plate so it fits so much more in but without a bigger footprint - great technology advancement team !!

Heats really well and cools down also which is great. Good value product. Show details

Stopped working after a year

I wanted to love this microwave. The flatbed design with no internal plate is fantastic. BUT It is very noisy and rattles. Worst of all is it stopped working right after it was out of its very short 1 year warranty. The issue is something to do with the door hinge. It needs to be knocked back into place to work. This is very annoying.
This is not unique to ours as we have the same one at work with exactly the same issue. Won't buy again. Show details

Great microwave

Its been going strong for 7 years now. So easy to clean with flatbed design.
Happy with the controls - very intuitive compared to a lot of other microwaves I've used.
Door latches have always been a bit stiff, bit of silicone lube now and then helps.
Nice looking, clean lines and easy to keep clean. Show details ·  1

Poor quality

Loved initially for the flatbed but not even 3yrs old and takes 4mins to heat a hot chocolate. Most microwaves I've had have lasted 10+ years. Show details

POOR LIGHTING

If I had the chance to to buy a Micro wave again, it would not be this model very hard to see the levels of settings and the light in the oven is non exist. so frustrating. I am satisfied, with the workings like Heating @cooking. But the light needs attention by the manufacturer. Show details

Not worth the money

I wish I had read any of these reviews available before buying ours. It has been a dud from the start. It heats food unevenly, and takes much longer than previous ovens we've had. It's very moist inside after use, very noisy, and has to 'cool down' after every use (more noise), and now 3.5 years after buying it, it has stopped working which will cost more to repair than purchasing a new oven. Show details

Mistake buying this one. Seemed O.K. at first

It blew a fuse a few months after purchase. Fuse was replaced with the correct value unit. Blew again almost immediately. Show details

I have just bought and installed in my caravan, a Panasonic NN-ST34NB. The control panel is not backlit and the function keys are extremely hard to read. Is that normal or is something not working?

I don't know of many microwaves that have backlit controls.. I think there's maybe a Breville? I don't think any of the Panasonic's have a backlight.

Hi John, thanks for your question. Confirming the buttons are not backlit & have white text/ images on a black background.

John M.

Well you need to change your paint supplier as I would say the text is:
A. Very small
B. OFF WHITE tending to GREY which on a BLACK background is extremely hard to read.

Can I alter the brightness of the display panel on Panasonic Inverter NN-SF574S because I’m short & it’s built in - it’s worse in daylight hours. Yes I wear glasses !
