Don't try to fix this yourself, faulty microwaves should be repaired professionaly or replaced.

The microwave unit in my Thermodore CMT231 has abruptly stopped working. I suspect a fuse may have blown. Is this self-serviceable? I am pretty much a novice.


When you say it stopped working , you mean no lights or display etc. Then that can be a fuse but fuses blow for a reason. Find the reason if the fuse blew.

My microwave want cook


Hello

and/or circuit breakers, particularly in the case of recent power failure, and reset if necessary.


Unplug the microwave, wait 30 seconds and plug back in to the power supply to reset the microcomputer.


Open and close the microwave door firmly and press "Stop/Reset." Select a new cook time and press "Start."


Ensure a proper cooking temperature and/or time is chosen, as low cooking temperatures or short cooking times may prevent the microwave from heating food appropriately. Press "Power Level" to ensure the microwave is cooking at 100 percent power.


Contact an authorized service technician if the problem is still unresolved.

I have an LG LMV1650ST, the heat stopped working and a tech came out and said the Magnatron 2 was not working and needed to be replaced. Does anybody have an idea of where i can find the part myself and...


Look, i dont like to tell a non tech how to repair thir own microwaves as there are dangerous voltages sitting there that havent discharged.Step 1, if the magnatron goes faulty, it normally makes a loud growling sound and blows the fuses.So hopefully it isnt faulty. Most of the time i find the HVdiode damaged and to be safe, i replace the 1 micrifarad capacitor.as well. Before you replace that even, normally there is a single fusible wire that runs from the transformer to the cap. If that fuse is blown, have it replaced. Ask a friend who has a little electrical knowlege to help you please.

Microwave runs but does not heat or cook food



If a Goldstar, LG or Zenith MV1610 or MV1608 is running but not seeming to heat a load placed in center of turntable, its probably because the "stirrer" intended to spread microwaves generated by the magnetron around the cook chamber is stuck so that most all the heating is directed toward the back and top rather than the center of the cook chamber. This usually occurs after cooking for longer than a minute with no load in the cook chamber - as when a model w/o a timer (such as a MV1608) is intentionally operated in cook mode to serve as a kitchen timer, or when a model with a timer function (such a MV1610) is accidentally operated for longer than a minute w/o any load. Before assuming the magnetron (usually warranted for 5, 8 or even 10 years) or other high voltage component such as diode or capacitor needs to be replaced, try “cooking” a 16 oz pyrex cup of water at full power on the outer edge of the turntable for 2-3 minutes - which usually reactivates the "stirrer" and restores normal cooking function.

LG Microwave LMV1650st wont heat food


Hi eb6181,

If it's within warranty, I'd exercise that and get it fixed.

Usually, if it appears to run, but isn't heating, the magnetron has gone bad. It's not a cheap part, and not really a DIY (do-it-yourself) operation. If your warranty covers the part, that will help a lot.

Even if not within warranty, I'd have an authorized service center do the job. They should have a list of authorized outlets with your manual and other literature. They can also give you a quote as to how much it will cost - - only you can make that call.

I had a magnetron replaced once, it was spendy, but ~20 years ago, microwaves were a lot more expensive than they are now.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon

Sensor Error, Funny Smell and Noise


On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the maximum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.
If none of these conditions apply to your situation, then you may have a defective sensor and/or magnetron.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

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

Oven turns on by itself when boiling water on stove!


Sounds like a mis-aligined, or defective door switch. I would suspect defective.
