Question about Hotpoint REM25SJ Microwave Oven
Greetings, When I turn on the microwave oven it will shut off without completing. The shutoff is generally preceded by flickering in the display panel. Sometimes it will operate to completion, quite bizarre. When I turn off the turntable it still works erradically. I have changed the outlet the unit is plugged in to but that has not made any difference. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Has this unit had the magnetron replaced lately? If so, it may be loose or the RF gasket (mesh screen type washer) may be missing or damaged. If not, the magnetron might be failing. To test this, you can try cooking on the lowest power level (1 or 10%) a few times and see if it fails less often. Otherwise, I would suspect a bad connection or component on the control unit (smart board), which we repair nationwide for only $39.95 postpaid in most cases. We have *critical* safety & disassembly info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk Please repost or write if we can help further.
