    I have the same issue. The microwave works and heats food but this message appears all the time. The microwave does not heat as well as it used to but it does work.

Amana RC22S2 Cooks but not as well as before. Continually shows Call SERV

It is sensing the unit is not heating properly and telling you to call for service. Resetting will only delay it from showing the error alert again. It has a current sensor on the unit to tell if it is running properly, if not, it gives the error to let you know it is time for repair.

Rc17 commercial microwave, display shows door even when door is closed.what can i do to resolve

Possible that the door lock switch is stuck and so is not releasing even after the door has opened. Look inside after disconnection of power to the microwave at the place where the door locks. Tap into the lock to release the switch . If the switch is jammed or damaged it must be taken out and replaced.

Abnormal noise produce by Amana microwave RC17

Deart Customer

please undergo the following

Since 30 to 50 percent of the power into a microwave oven is dissipated as heat in the Magnetron, cooling is extremely important. Always inspect the cooling fan/motor for dust and dirt and lubricate if necessary. A couple of drops of electric motor oil or 3-in-One will go a long way. If there are any belts, inspect for deterioration and replace if necessary.
An oven that shuts off after a few minutes of operation could have a cooling problem, a defective overtemperature thermostat, a bad magnetron, or is being operated from very high AC line voltage increasing power to the oven. One interesting note: Since 30 to 50 percent of the power goes out the vents in the back as heat, a microwave oven is really only more efficient than conventional means such as a stovetop or gas or electric oven for heating small quantities of anything. With a normal oven or stovetop, wasted energy goes into heating the pot or oven, the air, and so on. However, this is relatively independent of the quantity of food and may be considered to be a fixed overhead. Therefore, there is a crossover point beyond which it is more efficient to use conventional heat than high tech microwaves

i think the information would help u if so rate me please,otherwise just give it as fixya,Thank u
