Quite often this is due to grease or food particles stuck somewhere in the cavity of the oven or stuck on or behind the waveguide cover.

The waveguide cover (also called a spatter shield) is usually about the size of a playing card and often held in place by a plastic rivet.

It can be fragile, and the metal edges of the oven behind it can be sharp, so be careful!

The cover and the metal behind it should be cleaned with a mild, non-ammonia cleaner.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

If your waveguide cover is burned, it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron.

How do you replace the ovenlight in an Hinari Lifestyle Microwave Oven MX745GLSL?


Most microwave ovens require removal of the outer cover to access the light but be aware that you will expose yourself to potentially lethal voltages, even with power disconnected.

Why does my Hinari lifestyle MX780CEG make excessive noise from the magnetron area


Some magnetrons do emit a coarse buzzing sound, which is perfectly normal for them. If this is a new sound, though, it might be caused by something that has failed, or is failing, in the high voltage circuit. If the oven is not heating, the most likely culprit is the high voltage rectifier. A shorted magnetron or shorted capacitor will cause the transformer to hum much more loudly.

THE BULB HAS STOPPED WORKING ON MY HINARI LIFESTYLE MX905CEGSS MICROWAVE. HOW DO I REPLACE THE BULB?


Hi,

The bulb of most microwave ovens can only be accessed by removing the main cover.

This is usually a fairly simple procedure and requires only the loosening of a few screws which are situated on the side and/or back of the oven.
Once the cover is removed the bulb should be easily visible & usually consists of the ES or screw in type of connection.

Best wishes,
Graemevm

Hinari lifestyle combi microwave oven. After being stored for some time, this unit displays E=01 and bleeps continually. Can't get past this for it to work.


Hi, I don't have a solution, just the same problem! It says you had one solution to your question but I can't see it any where. Is your hinari working now?
