You posted a solution to my microwave problem.

I have lost your solution, which I wanted to "accept" because it has been replaced by a less plausible solution from someone else.

Is neff h5642nogb microwave oven discontinued


Discontinued? how much do you want to spend? Replacement could be less expensive, better options and more features.
Old standard may be familiar, but is it worth repair costs?

I want to replace the bulb in an LG LG MC7849HS microwave


To do this you have to remove the casing of the oven to get access to the bulb & I would NOT advise you to do this unless you are qualified in electrics. Microwave ovens are very dangerous pieces of equipment to deal with even when unplugged from the power source. A competent engineer should be able to quickly fix this for a reasonably acceptable price.

Panasonic NN-SD277. Almost 3 years old. We pressed start, it went for about a second (may have made a sparking sound) and then it just lost all power. There is still power to microwave but no lights are...


We also have this same microwave. It is less than 3 years old. We've had nothing but problems since we purchased it. In November 2010, the microwave made a crackling sound and then BOOM! Nothing. I have been back and forth with Panasonic. I refuse to pay for the repair on an appliance that is less than 3 years old. It's ridiculous!

Anyway, the problem t is an issue with their inverters. Google it and you will find page after page of the same story.

Everything works on the microwave accept when you attempt to cook - it does not heat. It makes a straining sound like it wants to kick on, but does not kick on?


The oven has either a shorted HV diode or magnetron tube. The tube generates the microwave energy and the diode is part of its power circuit. The bad parts could be replaced, but it's usually not economical to repair a microwave oven unless it's a very high-end model or a custom built-in unit. Between the cost of parts and labor, you might find the repair cost getting near replacement cost.

If you really want to keep this oven, take it to a service shop for an estimate. Microwave service should be left to professionals. There are potentially deadly voltages present, and a chance of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done properly.

The door handle broke off my GE microwave


Actually the door handle CAN be replaced at a cost much less than pruchasing an entire new microwave oven. And, YOU can repair this yourself and save the cost of a service call. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement

If the model number is correct, the part number is WB15X322. The cost is about $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided.

If you have any questions, or if your model number is different than the one listed, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you

How can I find out what wattage my Emerson MW8778W microwave is?


I also bombed out on locating a downloadable manual but the hardcopy is available on eBay here:

http://cgi.ebay.ca/Emerson-Microwave-Oven-MW8778W-S-D-B-Owners-Manual-7_W0QQitemZ320281595945QQihZ011QQcategoryZ159903QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem

The efficiency of microwave oven is ~ 65% so if you will check the back of your unit for the AC line (input power) consumed, you can easily calculate the usable 'cooking' power available.

i.e. If the label states: 115 VAC 10 Amp(eres), this would amount to 10 X 115 = 1150 X .65 = ~ 740 watts delivered to the food.

The magnetrons do age (if not fail first) and their emissions fall with progressive use so a 10 year-old oven won't still give you that ~65% but substantially less.

Ge advantium 120 microwave


It's pretty simple as long as you have an offset phillips screwdriver...

Of course, be sure to disconnect power to microwave and be sure not to touch the new halogen bulb with fingers.

STEP-BY-STEP:
First, remove upper vent panel and remove inner filter (same directions for just replacing inner carbon filter):

Then, remove inner plastic grille (2 screws) and final screw on left side of metal "air duct" - here's where you'll need the offset screw driver (and a little patience!):

Then, you can gently lift the sheet metal panel, find the light housing, squeeze and remove/replace :)

That's it...just replace bulb and reverse for reassembly. Be sure to keep track of screw locations there are various sizes/lengths used.
