This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

It sounds like the switch is not activating properly, and the inside light, turntable and magnetron cooling fan are not coming on.


If the magnetron runs without the cooling fan, it will overheat and its thermostat will interrupt the power to the oven until it cools back down.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

SOURCE: Bulb blown on Russell Hobbs CJ/AL28 microwave

Just open the top cover and find the location of the bulb , it may be in the right side near the control panel. Remove the bulb and get a similar bulb with the same rating from any electrical shop and fix it

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food. The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing. There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however. Benjamin

I was given a Russell hobbs microwave combi Ct/la30 without an instruction manual and I've just discovered the microwave has stopped heating. It sounds as if working. Thanks in advance


There are multiple possible causes for the problem. Here's a partial list: magnetron, high voltage capacitor, high voltage rectifier, power relay, inverter board (if an inverter oven), thermistor on magnetron (if so equipped), and on some units, a door switch.

I am looking to buy a sandwich maker like the 17936 and set it on timer for the morning so they are ready for when I wake up and go to work - does this russell hobbs model heat up and then stop heating...


Here are a few links to some information about the Russell Hobbs Model 17936 Sandwich Maker:


http://www.amazon.co.uk/Russell-Hobbs-17936-Sandwich-Maker/dp/B002MRS1NM


http://www.reevoo.com/p/russell-hobbs-2-sandwich-maker


http://www.sonicdirect.co.uk/catalogue--iID--5785--russell-hobbs-17936-2-slice-sandwich-toaster-in-brushed-stainless-steel.php


I don't think you will find a small sandwich maker with the type of automatic timer you are describing. Most full size digital ovens have that function, but very few smaller units like the 17936.

Also, would it not be a bit impractical to leave a sandwich with perishable toppings in the machine overnight in order for it to begin cooking in the morning? Any kind of meat product left out overnight unrefrigerated may become dangerously contaminated and spoil.

For all the time these machines take to heat up, you might as well just get up 5 minutes earlier in the morning and prepare your sandwich then.

Good luck though either way.

There doesn't appear to be a 2103 model, perhaps your model is a 2013 ?

Here is the webpage of the manual:
