My Panasonic NN-SN973S just recently started shutting off after 7-8 seconds of microwaving. The microwave powers off and then, after a second and a clock reset, powers back on. I can repeat this process with the microwave running on full power for 5-8 seconds each time, then powering off, and then back on. If I reduce the power level, say to a 6, then the microwave seems to work fine (but has the same problem as I move up to 7, 8, or 9). Is this likely a thermostat issue? Anything else I should try. I;ve only had the machine for a few years, it is a built-in, and I'm frustrated that I need to potentially replace it so soon,. Any help appreciated! Thanks!
