Oster microwave with convection/grill

I can't get it to cook. It goes for a couple of seconds, beeps like crazy and stops. It's brand new, haven't had the thing two hours. Bought it at Target, so they're no help. It's sitting on a flat balanced surface. The plug is secure. What am I doing wrong? thanx, Melinda

Re: oster microwave with convection/grill

I just had the exact same problem above...
I purchased the microwave from target about 5 mos. ago payed near 200 for it..half of the time the couldnt get funtions to work well,then had heating problems until last week it nearly almost burned my kitchen up..good thing I was here.I just spent one hour at target,and of course no help..reffered me to a number,but I already know where that s going to go! Im not blaming target,but when there is a defect in the product and you can clearly see and smell that it is burnt up then, they should or the manuf. should simply replace it.It wouldnt have mattered if I had the dang receipt anyway,after 90 days in target,your screwed!
I like walmart much better,and I guess I have to go and pay another 125.00 or something for a much less complicated one.
thanks for the info above Laura florida

Re: oster microwave with convection/grill

I just bought one to and have had no problems. Did you insert a time after it finished the preheating stage.

Oven does not work the element does not heat up

Consider replacing the element. See if Oster has a website where you can check. Also, here is an address that has a list of sites that sell oven parts and maybe one of them has the right element.

Microwave goes on but does not heat

  • Magnetron is fried. Resistance between the magnetron terminals should be less than 3 ohms. Resistance from the magnetron terminal to ground should be infinite.
  • Fried HV capacitor. Use your ohm meter to test it.
  • Fried control board. If power is going to the board but not going off to the other components, the board is bad and needs to either be replaced or track down the bad connection (GE/Hotpoints).
  • HV Rectifier is shorted or open. Test forward and reverse bias with a megohmmeter. If continuity in both directions, rectifier is shorted, replace. If no continuity in either direction, rectifier is open, replace.

Convection Oven OSTER 6248 err on the screen

I'm afraid you are screwed, because this is the usual failure scenario for this model. Mine just failed the same way, and it's only a couple of years old. I would avoid buying anything Oster in the future, because it's all made in China nowadays. Check out the reviews on this model, and on the 6058, on Amazon. Some people are reporting that the new model is a fire hazard as well.
If there are any good models coming from any other part of the world, I'd be interested in getting one. If you have any companies making such things in South America I'd definitely recommend supporting your local economy. The USA does not make toaster ovens anymore at all, apparently.

I just called Oster Service and the said to plug in the unit, hold the start button for 10 seconds and unplug the unit. My oven reset before I was able to try this, so let me know if this works for you.
