My E Wave microwave was working on Dec. 24TH. On the 25TH I had everyone over for Xmas dinner young and old was using the microwave, the next evening my daughter tried to heat up some left overs but the microwave would not get hot not even warm. Could it be the power level button? How do I turn it up? The model number is KOT-131UW.

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.

A common answer to this for Panasonic microwaves is "4 presses of the Timer On/Off button" toggles Demo on and off.

Without you specific model, I can't be more specific than that.

Micro wave stopped heating. All other features


Check the door safety interlock switches. Magnatrons are pretty tough but the little switches are not.

I bought my gourmet wave dec.2007. i believed that this microwave would have lasted at least 5 years,now the timer goes down but it is not heating what's put in.cant afford another.what can i do?EM031ESB


Chances are you have a bad door switch or mount.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad or otherwise turning off the timer first.

My GE spacemaker microwave doesn't heat up foods. There is a slight bit of heat generated but not much. All timers, lights, etc. work normal. It is a GE model jvm1440. It is about 3 years old. The problem...


IT COULD BE A NUMBER OF THINGS RANGING FROM DIODES TO CAPACITORS TO YOUR MAGNATRON OR THERMOSTAST OR TRANSFORMERS. IT'S DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE WITHOUT SEEING THIS MICROWAVE. YOU MAY BE BETTER OFF GETTING YOURSELF A DIFFERENT ONE.

Emerson microwave oven model number MW8115SS


You don't state how old your oven is, or if you tried other food items afterwords. I also assume you inspected for foreign metal objects in the oven? If it does this whenever you attempt to cook in it, then it sounds as if your oven may have a wave guide cover malfunction or burned area.This part can be replaced by the consumer in most cases, but only after consulting with a trained technician or your parts supplier.

Sanyo microwave EMS667W, diff high power ratings


A couple of things: If the dinner is in an aluminum pan, DON'T put it in your oven. Typically, high power units need about 3-5 minutes to heat a dinner so you should have heated it through. The power default is usually full power. Usually, there is a minutes button that should give you incremental minutes for programming.

Try using a standard nonmetallic cup (beaker) and fill it with water. Heat for 2 minutes. The water should be boiling hot. If not, your oven is not doing it right.
