Belling Microwave Problem

My folks microwave Belling MGC850SS has stopped working - its switching on or heating up. I've tried changing the fuse on the plug and that has not fixed the problem. Any suggestions? Is this common and do these machines carry internal fuses?

Re: Belling Microwave Problem

Apparently this one has a mechanical timer. That lack of electronic controls does lessen the complexity. I don't know about the specific regulations concerning British / EU microwaves, but I'm sure there's a fuse inside. In most cases, just replacing a blown fuse will not be the cure, unless one finds the reason it blew. What made it fail (if it did) is the real question. Loose fuse holder allowed excess heat? Shorted component or wiring? Or, is there a failure in the mechanical timer that's causing an open circuit connection? That can certainly happen. Also, a door switch may have failed. This is most commonly caused by opening the door while it's cooking, instead of turning the oven off first. I would suggest you contact Belling service:§ion=ContactBelling Good luck.

Microwave has stopped heating, yet grill and convection oven still work.

A model number would have helped, but I can give you a generic answer.
It may be a bad door switch or mount.
(Anybody in the home opening the door while it's cooking?)
See our help file on door switches here.

I have a NNSD297 Panasonic over the range microwave oven. First the unit had power, clock , timer, fan was working; except after hit the start button, maybe 2 secs looked like working then stops operating....

Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if the switch contact are not good then it will not trigger the processor to switch on the waveguides. If the lights or fan work without any display or action of program being triggered to start then it can be a possible fault on the main board or the processor. Sometimes insect secretion can short the board and display panel and so the processor can work in such an erratic manner. If so clean, solder and reset the board. Now identify the parts by clicking this link:

If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.

The main fuse in the microwave oven has blown, usually caused by one or two defective door switches.

Hi i put a plate in which has a gold rim on it, Only for a few seconds ,has this blown the fuse inside the microwave? I have changed the plug fuse but no joy, The microwave is only about 1 year old

That said, since you've already changed the fuse it's likely the magnetron has shot itself in the eye and died. If you want to press on and troubleshoot, here's an excellent troubleshooting guide:
Again, be sure to discharge any capacitors.

Power to back of oven going in and out of the oven but nothing happening not even the clock is coming on. please help.


Thanks for using FixYa. When microwave oven doesn't work at all, it means interior fuse inside the microwave has blown (usually a part inside the microwave makes this fuse blow). Sometimes a bad fuse holder inside the microwave cannot hold the fuse tight enough and the fuse will blow as well. If the fuse isn't the problem, check the door hooks and the door-release button. When these are broken, the door switch doesn't activate, so the oven can't work. It can also be due to a stuck or faulty door switch which might have blown the interior microwave fuse.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 microwave

My Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 Microwave / oven / grill has recently developed a problem. Every time I close the door the turntable starts rotating, even when I'm not using it. It doesn't make a noise, and doesn't seem to be going into any cooking setting, and the light doesn't come on, but it turns until I open the door, when the light comes on and the turntable stops turning. This has only recently started happening, and nothing else seems to be wrong with it, Is this safe or should I get rid of it and buy a new one. The guarantee has expired so repair may be cost prohibitive.

Cut out during heating

Possible causes include a blown fuse or high voltage diode. A bad magnetron or power transformer are also possible. I recommend taking the oven to a repair facility, or scrapping it & getting a new one. Do not attempt to repair this yourself, as microwave ovens have voltages present inside which are INSTANTLY LETHAL, & there are no user servicable parts inside.

If the fan and light are on when it's running, but the oven is not heating, it may be a bad door switch. We have important safety information and a help file to test and replace door switches and you can find it by searching on (not Google) for microwave circuit repair It may also be a bad connection at the magnetron or another problem, but please look over this information first then let us know what you find out.
