Question about Hotpoint RVM1425 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Hotpoint RVM1425 I heated a muscle relief heat pack in the microwave. I think it's filled with sand?? After that the microwave wouldn't heat anything. I still have power and the glass plate still rotates. When I try and select a power level I get the message..power level may not be changed at this time. Also, the small fan that automatically activates when using tha microwave sounds different..a deeper roar/sound?? Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks, Mark

The first thing I would suggest is to turn off the breaker or unplug it from the wall for a few minutes to "reset" it, then try again. If a reset doesn't fix it, I would think you may have a defective magnetron. When you heat something of very low moisture content, it can lead to microwave energy not being fully absorbed, but instead being reflected back to the magnetron. This can damage it. This is usually best left to a pro to repair. In case it might help, your owner's manual can be found online at: http://products.geappliances.com/ProdContent/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SKUOBJECTS&DOCUMENT=Use%20and%20Care%20Manual&SKU=RVM1425BA

EGGS SPLATTERED INTO MICROWAVE EMA301D2PS ELECTROLUX; HOW TO CLEAN IT?


Put a bowl of water with a couple of slices of lemon in it. Put it on low power (no convection) and heat the water up to a simmer. Turn off the microwave and leave the door closed for 10 minutes. Open the door and clean with dish soap and water, or for tough marks something like Comet or Mr Muscle Kitchen cleaner as all the dirt will be soft.

My space saver microwave will not heat anything yet everything else works.


i found on my micro setting if i accidentally set it up for convection, it stays that way and therefore just heats slowly when I think i'm microwaving. i have to re set it after i use convection or it defaults to that and therefore will not heat / microwave.

My microwave onen is not heating anything


I would suggest that the overheat stat on the magnetron has blown. If you are happy it's a simple thing to do but just make sure you disconnect from the mains before removing the cover and make sure that the High voltage capacitor is discharged. If you are not sure a qualified service tech will be able to fix this for you at little cost.

Hope this helps

Microwave won't heat anything


Yeah, it's time to invest in a new oven. The magnetron tube in yours most likely just finally wore out. It's the source of the microwaves, and like any tube it gets weaker with age and finally just quits altogether. It would cost more for a new magnetron than it would for a new oven these days.

Microwave runs but will not heat


More than likely the magnetron has failed. This could be for a number of reason. Do you use your microwave to heat wheat packs or warm plates? If so, you may have dried the magnetron out (they use the moisture in whatever you're cooking to heat it, and plates/wheat bags have no moisture).

I'd say a trip to your local Microwave repairer could be in order. It could also be the High Voltage Fuse which has failed. Either way a repairer will be able to tell you!

The air seems warmer? Probaly generated by the heat of the lamp?
