Tip & How-To about Vacuums

Microwave cooking time tip

Do not be in a rush to eat the food when your buzzer sounds. Remember, that the way the microwave functions is to let the food sit for a few minutes when it is done cooking. The food continues cooking and distributes the heat evenly throughout your food. Test for doneness after the standing time.

Microwave functions normally apart from heating food,fan runs and table rotates but heating does not occur.


A blown fuse near the magnetron will cause that no heating. However, if the fuse is good a magnetron tube is already defective, hence no heating with normal operation on other function.
Replace magnetron tube with similar rating and size.
Thanks for asking.

Everything works on this microwave, the problem is when its switched on and were trying to heat food etc its not heating the food


Please be extremelly careful with microwaves, they produce radiation. My best advise is to take it to a repaar shop and ask for a quote. Microwaves are so cheap nowadays that maybe is better to buy a new one if the repair cost over 50% of the price of a new one.

The microwave will not work. I tried the power button, the timer, the food, none of the areas to touch on work.


the safety switch is burn or broken.

also check for roaches they like to hang inside a microwave, you be surpise that you might have no roaches, i said the same thing, til i found a few.

anyways, how old is the device if it like 4 years old might be curcuit board going bad.

touch pad might be bad. usually be better to buy another microwave then to get it replacable pad.

I have an Amana above range Radarange, Model #AMV4204AAB, Serial # 10168958GE. Tonight after running for a 7 minute period and finishing, it would not again start. There is power to it, but various buttons no longer work. The following buttons won't work: Kitchen timer, Light Timer, #5 button, Popcorn, Poultry, Auto Defrost, and the Start button. Any help?


Hi,
  1. Push the power cord all the way into the outlet in case it became loose and is causing the problem. If the microwave still isn't working, check for a blown circuit fuse, and repair it.
  2. Step 2 Check that the controls on the microwave are programmed correctly according to the owner's manual. If they aren't, program them.
  3. Step 3 Close the microwave door firmly. Touch the cook function on the Start Pad, not the timer. Check if the microwave works. If not, continue to step 4.
  4. Step 4 Program the Power Level correctly. If it's not programmed properly, the microwave will cook the food too quickly or too slowly.
  5. Step 5 Use only microwave safe dishes. Make sure food is evenly shaped and defrosted before placing it in the Amana Radarange microwave.
Thanks.

I HAVE A BRAND NEW HOOVER MACH-3 CYCLONIC THAT CUTS OFF EVERY FEW MINUTES. IT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY! IT'S LIKE AFTER 5 MINUTES OF VACUUMING IT HAS TO SIT FOR A LEAST AN HOUR THEN YOU CAN VACUUM FOR ANOTHER 5 MINUTES. HELP!


If it were mine and it was brand new I would bring it back and exchange it. It sounds like the motor is over heating and shutting off automatically. Does not sound good. My advice return it.
