Question about Siemens Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Siemens microwave (inno-wave) that we have had for 3 years. It is a HF 17055GB/02. When I try to cook something, say I set it to cook for 2 minutes, after 23 seconds it stops and reverts back to the digital display clock. It seems clear during that 23 seconds the microwave isn't heating anything. Any idea what might be wrong and whether it is fixable and at what cost. Any help would be appreciated.

I wonder if this is an inverter-based model... I ask because on Panasonic/Quasar units, a problem with the magnetron or inverter will cause this very symptom.

If so, because of the voltages and currents involved, I do not recommend that someone without experience attempt repairs on an inverter circuit.

I would contact the manufacturer at the number in your owner's manual to find the nearest authorized servicer.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Hi I am using kenwood microwave since last6 years.but now from last one year it suddenly started make sound while not in working and now it is not heating. Plz guide what to do


Time to throw it away. Microwave ovens can be dangerous if not working correctly. Micro-waves, (The actual waves themselves) can be lethal. Unless you really know what you are doing, do not under any circumstances dismantle the machine and switch it on. The cabinet of the machine is designed as a protective box and should stop random waves escaping and cooking anything else including you own insides. Generally Microwave ovens are uneconomical to repair, for the parts and labour you can buy a new one. Buy the most powerful you can. If you buy anything that is below 1000 Watts make sure it has a turn table. Remember that the more you place in a microwave oven, the longer it takes to cook. If you have a big family and you can afford it, you might like to think about a commercial oven 1600 - 1800 watts, that can cope well with large quantities well and will cook a tin of baked beans in less than a minute.

Hi I have a siemens inno-wave HF17055GB Microwave and the plate turner is not turning, otherwise it seems to be working? help please


Replace the motor. The teeth in its gearbox have probably been damaged when trying to turn the plate by hand.

Kenmore Ultra Wave microwave Model # 665.61652 Quit Working


There are fuses in the unit but why did they go bad? something else has to go bad to cause the fuse to blow, unless the fuse got old or had bad connections at the fuse holder. Can try a new fuse then run and see if it works. Just don't run it empty, just put a container of water in it to test. If it works check all connections and see if any are loose or browned like it has been hot. That's where your problem will be.

The controller is probably sensing that the magnetron is not drawing current and shutting down the timer.

The magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

When you push cook time and a time, or just hit the auto 1,2,3,or 4 minutes, it lights up on the display like it is cooking, with the timer till finished going and everything, but it does not actually...


Highly likely your microwave has "failed".
Down inside the microwave is a part called the Magnetron. This is the part, (about the size of your fist), that makes the sound waves to cook the food.
On some models, it can fail, whilst all the other stuff works.
3 possibilities:
1) You need a fuse replaced.
2) You need a capacitor replaced (That part "starts" the magnetron) or
3) you need a new magentron.
In any regard, very often people will not opt to have it repaired, because the labor & parts can cost more than a new Microwave.
God bless your efforts.

First you check the fuse at the out put of highvoltage of the transformer. If the fuse is ok, replace the magnetron.
