Open Question

I have a viking microwave model VMOR205ss. The unit runs but won't heat and the turntable stopped at the same time. Is this a fuse problem and if so how do I replace?

SOURCE: Re. Viking DMOS200 1100 watts microwave oven does not turn on

I'm guessing that's a VMOS200?

If so, that's a rebranded Sharp R-530ES (as is the Dacor DMO2420S) and its secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or that switch's mount is bad.

See this file on door switches. If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

The Sharp R-530E service manual will aid you in disassembly and it is here.

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

SOURCE: no power to our Viking microwave vmor205ss

That oven is essentially a Sharp model R-1874 with Viking's name on it. The R-1874 is turn is a variant of the R-1855A.

We have the service manual for the R-1874 and and R-1855A have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print them in case you don't have it.

The fuse and the magnetron's temperature fuse are the two internal parts most likely to render it "dead".

You can use the Sharp part numbers for internal parts, but not for cosmetic / external / trim parts.

If the problem turns out to be the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

9 amps is approx. correct. Does magnatron make an odd sound when running? If not, you will need to discharge cap then clean terminals with alcahol. Replace diode as well. Should run correctly.If blows again, replace magnatron. Suggest you put a 12 amp fast blow fuse in circuit and nor a 20 fuse.If you dont have a grill or an oven, use a 10 amp fuse.

HOW TO CHANGE VIKING MICROWAVE LIGHTBULB VMOS200


The Viking VMOS200 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-530E.

One or both of these service manuals should cover disassembly and location of the bulb:

Turntable turns intermittently so unit will not operate


The turntable fan and light all share the same feed, first check wiring for loose connections the problem though is most likely with the controller
