Inspect the power cordUnplug
the power cord and check for voltage at the outlet. Also inspect for
damage, shorts, or burn marks that can be a possible safety hazard.
Bad door switchIf your
microwave does not work at all and you know everything is plugged in
properly and the outlet is functioning, then also check the door hooks
and the door release button. Using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check your
terminals. When your microwave door is closed you should have a reading
of zero. Once the door is open the reading should change to infinity. If
these readings do not match up, replacement of the door switch is
Blown fusesTo determine
if your fuse has blown out, which may attribute to your microwave not
running, you need to pull the fuse out using a pair of fuse pullers. Lay
it down and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check both ends of the fuse
in question. If you do not get a reading of zero, then you will need to
replace the fuse.
Bad fan motorLocate the
fan and remove the leads. Again using the volt-ohm meter on RX1, check
the terminals. If an infinity reading is displayed, it means that the
fan has gone bad and requires replacement.
Hi everyone concerned that your Cookworks ST - 1060 won't work.
Take out the whole heater from the cooker. Turn it up-side-down, so that the thermostat controll is to the bottom. Looking at the side that the heating element fits, you'll see 4 small black screws. Dont touch them. You'll also see 3 white metal cross head screws holdoing the heater in the apliance, don't touch these either.
Around the outside, there are 3 more screws set deep into the plastic housing. Unscrew these and keep them safe. From the domed end, prize open the housing and pull it away.
Inside you'll see the thermostat which has a black plastic pin protruding from it. It is an 'over-heat cut out switch'. PRESS IT IN and re-assemble the unit.
The unit now works again. NOTICE! If the cut out triggers again, it might be a better option to have the unit serviced by a qualified electician.
Hope this helps.

I had one of the snow globes that you display out front get cut by a tree limb that fell a few years back, I used 2 inch wide clear tape to repair it. I put it on the inside of the slice sticky side facing out of course, covering the top half of the slice about 1 - 2 inches past each end of the slice, then gently placed then pressed the bottom half onto it. We have had it back up every year since with no other issues.
1. UNPLUG THE CENTER JACK of the pcb, that leads to the computer board! LEAVE THE GROUND WIRE ON THE BOARD!!!
2 REPLACE THE FUSE. Both lights on the pcb should light up, that give you the 12 volt line, AND THE 24 VOLT LINE. If they are both lit, stay lit, and don't blow the fuse, then try plugging in the computer again ENSURING THE GROUND IS GOOD FIRST ON THE COMPUTER/TOUCHPAD!!!!!!!
3 If suddenly the fuse blows when you plug in the grounded keyboard cable back into the printed circuit board, or if one of the two lights on the printed circuit suddenly goes dim when the keyboard is plugged in, YOUR NAME JUST BECAME JESUS AND TODAY IS GOOD FRIDAY! Your computer and touchpad is defective and that is going to cost you BIG MONEY!
On my unit with the same problem it is the element contact located under the oil pan. The contacts obviously began arcing due to corosion or poor contct causing deteriotion of the contact points. I am trying to find the necessary replacement part. It isnt hard to replace but finding the part may be.
FIRST THING I WOULD DO IS CHECK THE FUSE IN THE PLUG IF THIS WAS OK THEN YOU CAN CHECK THE THERMOSTAT WITH A MULTIMETER TO MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE AC VOLTAGE IF YOU HAVE CHECK TO SEE IF THERE IS A FUSEABLE FUSE AROUND WERE THE HEATER ELEMENT IS IF THERE IS NOT A FUSE THEN IT IS POSSIBLE THAT THE ELEMENT IS GONE OPEN CIRCUIT
The first thing to do would be to get an electrician to your home to check that the problem is not with your supply. If you ask nicely then the same guy could probably check your fryer for short circuits - the most likely culprit if the problem is intermittent is the plug on the power cord, the cable and the connection inside the fryer where the cord goes in - check that all these are ok.
The other possible cause could be a faulty element, however this is unlikely to be an intermittent fault, and it would usually get worse quickly to the point of not working at all.
Hope this helps - please post again if not :)
