### How do I know wattage for 1974 recipes and convert cooking time to todays microwave (1200)

A 1974 Microwave Oven is probably not putting out more than 600 watts. You need to do a power test to determine it's actual power output. Place a 2 cup glass measuring cup with exactly 500 mL of cold water. Record the starting temperature of the water. Run the microwave on 100% power for 18 seconds, using a watch or timer, not the timer on the unit. Take the water out and stir it to make sure that there are no hot or cold spots in the measuring cup. Record the new temperature. Example: 78.4-64.1= 14.3.
Multiply 14.3 X 38.75= 554.125. The power output is 554 watts IEC. If the recipe is set for a 1200 watt unit, and your is almost 600 watts, obviously, you would double the cook time. Since this is rough, you need to experiment a bit. If the cook time is 10 minutes, check your product at 8 minutes. Be sure to push the stop button before you open the door when it is in cook mode. This will save wear and tear on door switches and leave the remaining cook time on the timer. Let me know how this works out for you..

### Need to know how to roast a whole chicken

Cooking meat is not a good idea especially chicken, few microwaves have a higher enough temperature to properly cook it, you are using a 700 watt microwave, the core temperature is simply not high enough to properly cook the meat. I strongly recommend the regular oven for proper cooking and safety, plus it will taste better.

### How long does it take to cook brown rice in the steamer?

To cook brown rice takes about twice as long at white rice. Usually there are microwave instructions on the rice package.
If the instructions specify a certain power, like 1000W, you
can look on the back of your microwave or in the instruction
booklet to see what yours is.
Good luck,

### Just purchased our Cuisinart Stainless Microwave, plugged it in, read the operational instructions and set the clock. As a test, we tried to heat water....does not work. Any suggestions?

Yes! Take it right back to the store for exchange, cause could be a bad magnetron "that heats food" and a couple parts that work together with the magnetron,or there may be issues with the keypad, none of these will be cheap to fix.

### Panasonic Microwave oven - cooking operation stops afer 2 seconds

Sounds like a short in the microwave circuit. One or more of the following four components has failed -

Transformer
Magnetron
Diode
Capacitor

Repair is not for the amateur, unless you know how to take things apart, and put them back together EXACTLY as the were found.

Parts are available on the Net, and you can get the P/N's off the old components to identify suppliers of the new ones.

Don't try and measure resistance of the diode. It's impedance is far too high to get a good reading. They're cheap anyway. Always replace the capacitor, they're cheap too. No way to test the magnetron, and the transformer is not easy to test either.

### Temperature control

By default, it should cook at high (full) power.

On most brands, you would press Cook, enter the time digits, then press Start. And it automatically cooks at high power.

If it is losing heating power, your magnetron is probably failing.

This one's pretty old, but if you really love it, it's worth it. Owners of old microwaves usually love them. They're pretty strong units.

I just recently repaired an old GE (then by Panasonic / Quasar) convection microwave for a customer in New York. He shipped the whole microwave (95 pounds) to me and of course paid for return!

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

### Microwave runs for 3 seconds and shuts off

This is an inverter-driven model, and this is one way the inverter fails. Often it will tick, too, but the cooling fan may be too loud to hear ticking. If you haven't had smoke, then it may not yet catastrophic. I would bet that a thorough resoldering would take care of it. A good technician can troubleshoot and repair this, as needed, but often they will just replace the inverter. Sometimes that's actually cheaper. Troubleshooting an inverter is way too much for someone without good solid technical experience. I would call a shop and ask for an estimate to replace the inverter. Good luck.
