Question about DeLonghi MW 605 Convection/Microwave Oven
My microwave has stopped microwaving. It makes the noises and the plate goes round but no heat. The grill and the oven work fine. Any help appreciated.
Hi, I take it that this is a combi microwave? Some of these have settings on the front to microwave/grill/etc... so make sure its on the right one first!!
If you have selected the correct one then the m/wave does not work it could be several things!
Microwaves run to earth and need diodes to do this if these break down it will not m/wave! It could also be a internal fuse? ( but very unlikley if everything else works) Then you have the Mag or transformer which could be down to! M/waves run on a high power side and a low power side. The low power will not hurt you to much but the high power side will. My advice to uou is not to touch as it could be fatal as these things carry a high charge even when they are unplugged!

Replacing the turntable motor.
The motor assembly is fixed to the base
of the oven usually with two screws and access i obtained by removing
the inspection plate directly beneath the motor. It is usally a plug
in synchronus motor that revolves at a few revs per minute but the
plastic cogs in the motors gear box fail and the motor assembly must
be replaced. They are fairly inexpensive and obtainable usually from
a domestic appliance repair shop.
If you feel confident, disconnect it from the mains power, remove anything in the cavity and turn it upside down if it is a tabletop model, a little more complicated if it is built in!
Remove the inspection plate and disconnect the motor. Remove the motor and go and get a new one. Re fit it and put the microwave back in its position. Plug it back in, with the turntable and plate. Put a cup of water on the plate inside of the oven and heat for 20 seconds to check the plate goes round.
Hope this helps.
