Re: Goldstar 1500m

The most common causes for this (in order) are a defective door switch, door switch mount, or a bad connection or relay on the control panel. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa:

I have an old Goldstar microwave (MV1140T) that just stopped heating. The fan still works but the food won't heat up. What can I do?

The problem is caused by a bad magnetron, "common problem" or the high voltage capacitor and diode, all three work together to heat the food. The repair cost for parts and labor will be high enough to consider buying a new microwave oven.

Makes grinding sound when turned on---does not heat---turntable does turn

Grinding sound may be the turntable not sitting properly on its support. Regarding the heat issue, check the door safety interlock switches for proper function.

As you use your oven, open the door while it is running, arcing occurs on the little contacts and they eventually burn. When they cannot make contact, the oven doesn't know if the door is closed or not. Forget what YOU know about the door ... the oven must know and it knows by the information it gets from these switches. Door open, the oven will not turn on the heat.

Open the cover and look for a fuse. If it's not blown then the power tube (klystron?) is probably fried.

Goldstart Microwave Model #MV1526 1000w Everything works, but does not heat up. Goldstar MAL 783W Same problem as for another Goldstar I saw here. light comes on, turntable turns, and to answer the...

With the symptoms you have, I would most strongly suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad magnetron, or a loose and possibly corroded connection on the magnetron's terminal.

The diode is a fairly cheap fix, and the mag will cost more.

The service manual can be downloaded here.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)

To order Goldstar / L.G. parts, visit Vance Baldwin Electronics. You'll probably have to call them.
