Question about Goldstar MV-1526 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Microwave does not head

When we use it it only lights up and the fan runs it does not heat and the turntable does not turn. Would this have anything to do with the magnetron?

    Probably not. It's probably a bad door switch or mount.

    Please reply back with your model number so we can help you.

SOURCE: dacor dcm24s.light, fan, and control panel work but turntable and heat do not

Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.

SOURCE: MICROWAVE OVEN DOESN'T HEAT. LIGHTS, FAN, TURNTABLE, TIMER ALL WO

If everything else works on the microwave, but it simply does not heat, the magnetron is a logical guess. There are also three other components that make up the High Voltage network: HV transformer, HV Capacitor and HV Diode. The magnetron, however usually is the component that fails more commonly. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you can view all these components at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Cavity" section. The magnetron runs around $86. If you decide to repair this, please let me know. A microwave oven is not an appliance for a DIY beginner to start with. The High Voltage network has potentials of 3000 to 4000 volts and safety is important. If this is not your model number, post back with the correct info. I hope this helps you.

Oven heats, but light, fan and turntable do not come on.


Hi Ted

many microwaves have safety mechanisms to reverse, or stop the turntable if it senses resistance to the turning. This is done both because
  1. the turntable is usually driven by a small motor with a gear reduction transmission to get more torque on the glass platter and your food, and if something resists the turning, it can damage the gear train or belt if it keeps running.
  2. if you have something with liquid in it and it hits a wall, it could tip over, possibly spilling scalding liquid all over and maybe surprising the person who opens the door.
In some cases, it'll just stop and then try again the next time you run the microwave. The banging on the case sometimes turning things back on suggests that either something in the turntable mechanism is awry, or that there is a common hot wire, ground loop, or possibly fuse for the light/fan/turntable.

the manual for the oven doesn't really say anything about this.

You can see generic intructions on looking for an internal fuse here
Panasonic Microwave NN CT552W has no power plug fuse ok Has it got thermal... . Please, in particular, make sure you unplug the oven before opening anything. This is one of those devices where defeating the interlocks and having it turn on can seriously hurt you.

With regard to the turntable, in particular, it's really easy over time for exploded spaghetti sauce, spilled cocoa, and overmelted butter to have run down into the indentation in the middle of the bottom of the oven cavity. Remove the platter. Is it clean in there? Does it look like the 'this person never flosses' picture for mechanical rotors? If so, start with some kitchen cleaner and a washcloth damp (not soaked) with hot water. Let the cloth steam /warm the area a bit, wipe it down. repeat if necessary. If there's a lot of cruft built up there, that could be keeping you on the edge of safety shut-down.

Good Luck!

Kenmore Elite Microwave oven 63792 doesn't heat - all lights, turntable, fan, etc. work just fine.


Most likely it would be a bad magnetron since the light, turntable, and vent fan are running.

Not heating


If the oven is doing everything else properly (light comes on, fan runs, turntable goes around) but there's no heat, you may have a failed magnetron tube (the microwave source). There's also a relay that controls power to the tube that may not be working correctly, or the control circuit board is bad. It's also possible one of the door switches is not working (so the oven thinks the door isn't closed), although this usually keeps the turntable and fan from running.

Microwave oven service is not for do-it-yourselfers. There are potentially deadly voltages present even with power off, and a chance of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done properly. Let a professional give an estimate to repair it, or just replace it if it's under $100. (When I was servicing these things it wasn't unusual for a repair to cost over half the price of a new one. That's one of the reasons so few shops still work on small appliances.)

Microwave not heating up


Check the door switch, when it is faulty the oven will turn on but turntable, fan and magnetron wont operate.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

You can also order from MicrowaveSvc , they also provide parts.

Sharp 1870 just quit cooking and no turntable


The fact that the microwave and convection both do not heat indicated that the oven is in demo mode, check the user manual, otherwise it will possibly be a relay not triggering, may need a pcb replacement, check Demo mode 1st....Phil
