Question about Siemens HF26066GB 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Siemens HF26066GB plate is moving when door closed and not moving when open

When the Siemens Microwave oven is not being used the plate rotates inside. Once the microwave door is opened the plate stops rotating. When the food/drink is placed on the plate and the microwave heat setting is turned on the plate remains stationary which obviously results in uneven heating.

Have a shop look at this---there usually is a recessed safety switch inside the jam that will prevent the unit from working with door open--sounds like the problem may be with it.

SOURCE: I have a Siemens microwave

I wonder if this is an inverter-based model... I ask because on Panasonic/Quasar units, a problem with the magnetron or inverter will cause this very symptom.

If so, because of the voltages and currents involved, I do not recommend that someone without experience attempt repairs on an inverter circuit.

I would contact the manufacturer at the number in your owner's manual to find the nearest authorized servicer.

SOURCE: Microwave door does not shut tightly

If your oven door has gotten bent or warped (maybe you rested something heavy on it…), you need to remove the door, disassemble it, and straighten it. You can lift most oven doors off of their hinges by opening the door several inches to its first "stop," and lifting the entire door straight up.

If the hinges have become worn, damaged, or bent, you probably need to replace them. We recommend replacing both hinges at the same time, to prevent uneven wear of the undamaged hinge.

My ge micro will not stop turning


HELLO.

If by not turning mean turntable fault,the solution is given below in detail.

1 Press "Stop" to halt microwave operation.

2 Press the "Turntable" button once to turn off rotation.

3 Push the door-release button to open the microwave oven if you do not have a "Turntable" button on your control keypad.

4 Lift and remove the glass platter from the oven, then pick up the plastic track with three wheels below the platter. Set aside these parts.

5 Insert the elevated microwave cooking tray into the oven. The tray has three to four short legs that hold it above the bottom of the microwave, keeping it from interfering with the rotating bolt in the bottom center of the oven the drives the turntable. You can now place food on the elevated tray and cook normally without disrupting the drive bolt.

Thanks.

> Why has the plate stopped rotating?

The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You order Sharp parts Encompass here or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

> Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate is not rotating?

No.

Russell hobbs combination microwave oven (HOB CJ/AL28).The plate inside my microwave no longer rotates and also the light has stopped working to, it is only a year old!Also when it gets to hot its turns...


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

It sounds like the switch is not activating properly, and the inside light, turntable and magnetron cooling fan are not coming on.


If the magnetron runs without the cooling fan, it will overheat and its thermostat will interrupt the power to the oven until it cools back down.

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 you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

Smasung MW7490w door/turntable problem


It's probably a defective door switch, probably the upper one, or the mount which holds the switch is broken. Opening the door while cooking (without first hitting the STOP button) is the primary cause of door switch failure. There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door hooks latch 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. Usually it's not a loose screw, but instead a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position.
