SOURCE: Microwave timer counts down but doesn't turn on when started

This
is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch
mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or
occasionally a
problem on the control panel.

Even though a door
switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

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 first.

There are
plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and
onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these
mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be
activated properly.

Sometimes it's
a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just
out of position. This tab
can be hard to see, since it is under the
bottom edge of the switch.

If the switch mount is
broken, it's usually more economical and
safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the
switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

One test that sometimes
helps is to
gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to
start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount
or
door alignment issue.

You can find helpful
exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model
number here.

There
should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit
behind the
control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating
components.

At
our Web site, we have a video
available showing how to remove a typical
over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find yours,
or if you want to look at it without disassembling the oven, you can
download it here.

If you only need a
switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem
is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail
for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so with a one-year
guarantee.

We're
happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful
rating of our answer.

In all
likelihood the mangnetron is failing, or perhaps even the Power Supply is
faulty. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.

Ensure
you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the
cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one

You may have a faulty door interlock switch. Check the switches.

Assuming its the same as my Hamilton Beach, you first enter the cooking time, but don't press start yet, instead press power, then a number button 1 - 9 for the power level 1 for 10%, 2 for 20% etc. THEN press start as normal

Hi, W/D here.

Here's an easy way to calculate your cubic feet: measure and multiply (in inches) the width X depth X height, then divide by 1728. This will give you cubic feet.

For example, if a microwave measured 18" wide X 18" deep X 12" high, it would be 3888 cubic inches; divided by 1728 (cubic inches in one cubic foot) = 2.25 cu.ft.

1.1 cubic feet.

You can find the cubic footage of a microwave by measuring (in feet) the length x width x height of the inside of the cooking cavity.

generally speaking you buy and OTR microwave by width, i.e., 30" wide is the standard width of all most all OTR . so any 30' wide microwave will fit. when talking about cubic feet, they usually are talking about the interior capacity of the microwave. but if you really want to know cubic feet of above dimensions, then multiply all three together and divide by 1728. (4.036 cuft)

Determining the cubic feet of any given appliance, Microwave, Oven, Freezer or Refrigerator is quite simple.

Follow these steps.

Open the door of your microwave and measure the length, width and height in inches of the interior cavity.

Multiply the length by the width by the height using a calculator to get the total in cubic inches.

Divide the cubic inches by 1,728, which is the volume of a cubic foot. The resulting number will be your microwave's measurement in cubic feet. You can also use an online conversion calculator to simplify matters

Hope that helps

Since there are 12 inches in a foot, there are 12x12x12 or 1728 cubic inches in a cubic foot.

Dividing 1404.4921 by 1728 gives about 0.8128 cubic feet.

Cubic square feet is determined by multiplying length (depth) X width

X height. Example= 2X2X2 = 8 cubic feet. A typical countertop microwave is going to be 1.1 to 1.6 cubic feet of oven capacity.

If you want to calculate the volume of an object and have the answer in cubic feet.

Volume=Length X Width X Height

With the dimensions you give

Volume=12.5in X 37in X 20in

Volume=9250 cubic inches

To convert 9250 cubic inches into cubic feet you need to understand that there are 1728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot.

L X W X H = 12"X12"X12"=1728 cu in

You then multiply 9250cu in and (1/1728cu ft) Really you are dividing 9250 by 1728.

your answer is 5.35 cubic feet.

12 inches in 1 foot

144 square inches in 1 square foot

1728 cubic inches in 1 cubic foot

to convert you put the unit you want to keep on top of the dividend.

to conver to to feet ( randomly selecting 100 inches)

Example converting 100 inches to feet

100inches X ____1ft____ = (100/12) = 8.3 feet

12inches

or cubic inches to cubic feet

4000 cubic inches to cubic feet

4000cu in X ____1cu ft____ = ( 2.33 cu ft)

1728 cu in

if you notice that the units on top and bottom of the dividend cancel each other out leaving the numerator (top number) as your unit.

it also works in reverse

2.33 cu ft X ___1728 cu in____ = (4000 cu in)

1cu ft

Volume=Length X Width X Height

With the dimensions you give

Volume=12.5in X 37in X 20in
