Hello Kavithaanto,
If I understand your problem correctly, it sounds as if your microwave was operating and the egg exploded after 5 minutes ( which caused the door to open), after cleaning up the mess, you tried it again and it does not work. If that is true, then there is a high probability that your microwave has a damaged Magnetron Tube, Filament Transformer or High Voltage Capacitor.. none of which are something the untrained person should attempt to repair. Since your microwave is a table top model, I recommend that you consider purchasing a new one. The cost to repair would exceed the cost to replace so it is not worth it. I am sorry that I couldn't provide a more encouraging solution.
Best Regards,
Rick

Try2910227 serial ywmh2205xvb-0 model arcing on the back corner were the rack sits.Is there a way to repair this seen is the unit was purchaced in June of 2011.


Yes, take the rack out and recycle it. I do not know why these micro-wave company put racks in the micro wave ovens. You get some insulation on the inside the micro flaking off next the rack.


The mega-tron tube is a very high energy transmitter. The energy will come out of the top inside the micro wave oven in a wave guide. Micro wave energy that generation by the tube is high frequency into Gega Hertz. You have a metal tray in side the micro wave acts like a big capacitor it stores energy in form of heat the next you know it look like Marconi is putting on a lighting display.



Leave the wire tie on a loft of bread and put in you micro wave oven to defrost. The next thing you might see is a load bread burning, instant toast. ----The use of micro wave were invented by the British before WWII. The mega tron tube generation very high frequency radio wave and these wave struck an object 100 miles away some of this beam energy would balance back to a receiver-----You have Radar.... I wish you and your family well being and be careful of micro wave ovens it can burn from inside out. GB you...stewbison

My microwave does not heat as hot as it use to. What would cause that.


Here is a simple power test.
Place a measured cup of water into the microwave. Run the micro for 2 minutes. A 1000 watt micro will boil a cup of water in 2 min. Check the power output of your machine. It will be found on the model number tag. A 700 watt micro will take about 3 minutes. If this occurs, the machine is working properly.
Otherwise, check the outlet voltage, should be 110 or higher.
Outside of this, you could need a high voltage capacitor or magnetron.

Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)

Samsung microwave -the electrical panel runs, the


it sounds like it one of your micro-switches inside that control the power to the doors, if one of the switches is bad, it would cut the power , the panenl will light, the turn table will work, the fan will turn on , but you will not get any heat at all, micro-switches run depending onthe unit from 5-10 bucks, when you open the unit you will see the one that is bad, is usually bent or the connector might be burn or melt, good luck..!

I have a built in Whirlpool Micro Wave oven that quit


if you open the cupboard door above the microwave you should see two or four screws/bolts holding the microwave up there. there should also be an electrical outlet up there where the microwave is plugged in. have at least two strong people. put some blankets on your stove top to protect it. unplug and remove the screws. it should be connected in back by a metal plate also. when the microwave is tilted down at a fourty five degree angle, you can give a little lift and it should pop off the plate in back. it is heavy. get a new one at sears or other appliance retail outlets. i dont recommend best buy. they really screwed me over so i dont send business their way.

You would have to remove the top cover and check to see if the main fuse is blown. Usually a 20 amp slo-blow. There are thermal cut out devices, they will reset when the unit cools, so plug it in the next day and see if the clock and power is back up. good luck, Dale

Is the microwave possibly dangerous after it popped & now smells


Hello jeffnlaur,
The sound you heard could be any number of things but I would attempt to verify the basic preformance of the microwave was ok by placing a cup of water in the cooking compartment and switching the micro on for about 2 minutes.. The water should be close to or at a boil after this time ( depending on glass type and power output of oven). Listen for any other irregular sounds while it is running. You may have heard something in the soup pop or some of the electronics within the micro arc but it may not mean it is dangerous. Try the water test first and if it continues to exibit internal noises and burning a burning smell, I would discrad the oven. Table top models are very inexpensive and the cost to diagnose and repair would probably exceed the cost to replace,
In terms of dangerous, there are safety devices to cut off power to the magnetron and other components if warranted. Not sure that helps you but with limited info from your side, diagnostics are 'iffy' at best..
Regards
Rick

Egg cookers


I found the instructions
Sprinkle a few grains of salt on bottom of egg cooker. (Salt attracts microwaves and is necessary to help cook bottom of egg)

Break egg into egg cooker.
One egg in micro at a time.

Will fork piece yolk and white to bottom of cooker, three times. _ This is very important.

Line up notches on egg cooker lid and cup then twist until locked

Micro on High for 30 seconds

Let stand 10 seconds
If bottom of egg is not cooked turn egg over with a spoon and microwave on high for another 10 to 20 second or until cooked.
