Question about Samsung MW1030WA Microwave Oven

1 Answer

No Heat I have had 2 of the Spacemaker XL 1800 and both of them stop shooting microwaves after about 2 years. Everything else works fine. I'm thinkings it's the magnatron. Can I test the HV on this? Would hate to spend $$ on the magnatron only to find it's something else. Appreciate your thoughts! --Martin

First you have to disassemble the cover, then disconnect the transformer power wires. After that, connect a small electric motor, coffee grinder or mixer to the end of the wire, even an electric light bulb (all of this with the cord plugged out of the socket). Then fill the oven and turn it on for 1 minute at full power. If the electric motor starts or the bulb lights up, it means you have a supply voltage for the magnetron.
This means that it burned and must be replaced.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for about 5 minutes.
