Question about Amana AMV1162 Microwave Oven
My Amana Radarrange starts just fine. However, after 30 sec - 2 minutes, it stops heating but continues to count down. After a while, it begins heating again. It takes forever just to heat a bowl of chili. What can I do to fix it?
Quite often this is due to a bad door switch. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP button) is the primary cause of door switch failure. You can visit my Web site at _ or e-mail at _ if you'd like more in information on diagnosing and repairing this problem.

It sounds like its over heating or the magnatron or the Hi voltage transformer. if you open it and start it a fan should be cooling off the magnatron if its not then the fan is bad and thats your problem Worse case is that the power transformers drawing too much current and over heating and shutting down the first problem i explained though I've seen a hundred times. BUT BE very carefull as there is hi voltage inside this puppy and I've seen it grab and throw a grown man across the room!!!! if you know nothing about electrical or electronic devices its best that you leave this repair to a pro. Good Luck
