SOURCE: Won't heat. Everything else works.

Magnatron is suspect. Need to put a voltmeter on it and see if the input (primary) side to the high-voltage transformer (big heavy iron thing in there) is getting 120Vac. Don't touch the other (high voltage) side of this transformer. If the power is there, you are looking at replacing the magnatron. Its affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"

Yes, there is. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in your model number, you will find the fuse listed under the "Interior Parts" heading as item number 14 (part #815174). You can find appliance fuses much cheaper at the local hardware store. Just make sure it is the correct type and rating (refer to the fuse in the appliance for the information - these are usually a 120V 20A fuse). The reason I mention this site is because they provide excellent part drawings and provide part numbers. There should also be a wiring diagram located behind the control panel to assist you in troubleshooting. Please go to my profile and use the "Ask Me" feature if you require further assistance. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I have a hotpoint microwave

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

GE / Hotpoint models usually have about a 2-second delay between the time you hit Start and the time the high voltage section turns on.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

SOURCE: hotpoint microvave won't start rvm125j

Have same problem tech tested some components and gave up (i think) and just called it a circuit board problem. I have a service plan so the whole microwave is being replaced as it is apparently cheaper for the warranty company.

MICROWAVE OVEN "DAEWOO" MODEL KQG-868G PROBLEM :


There should be 3 'fuses' inside a microwave. The 'line' or monitor fuse, the magnetron fuse or TCO (thermal cut out) and the cavity temp fuse. I'm trusting that you have verified that the outlet is 'hot' first. Be careful !!

Microwave work for few n minutes and stop


The thermal fuse is bad, or the fan is not running, or the magnetron is getting to hot, it can be one or a combination of problems.

No power checked outlet and power is on


HELLO.

This is the way out of the problem.

The outlet is on power,the power problem is from the microwave.

check on the back of the microvave to locate the fuse that control the supply of power to the microvave.

Change the fuse because it is unable to control power supply.

Then plug the microwave to the outlet.

Thanks .

LG Microvave just stopped all at once as if the power went out. Nothing will respond. I checked the outlet is fine.


you may have blown a fuse if there is no power display...the fuse unfortunately is located in control panel... it usually is either a 15 amp or 20 amp fuse... do not put a larger one in or a smaller. to test the fuse if you cant visible see it is bad you will need to ohm out and should get continuity ...if the fuse is good and you have no display most likely the pcb or board is bad.... good luck

No power or functions of any kind.


Check the external fuse / circuit breaker first.

IF that is OK, then it's possible an internal fuse has blown. These can be replaced but it should only be attempted if you are confident enough to be able to discharge and ground the main capacitor before working on the device.

GE MicroWave JES1136WL01 died while defrosting.


Mine has the same problems. After removing top cover, check fuse on power supply board (mine was OK). Then check thermo fuse located to the far left under the top cover( 2 black wires going to it) using a meter. I then jumped this fuse to see if this was the only problem. I hope to find a replacement thermofuse at the local hardware store.
