I have kitchenaid microwave model 1857 wss it was working perfectly the night before and when in the morning I came to kitchen the microwave looked the it lost its power although I check all of the circut...


SEEING AS HOW YOU USED IT THE NIGHT BEFORE, THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE THAT YOU MAY HAVE BLOWN A FUSE OR A THERMAL CUT OUT (TCO) THERE ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT FUSES IN THIS MICROWAVE. IF YOU'RE INTERESTED IN SALVAGING THE MICROWAVE BECAUSE YOU LIKE IT, I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND CALLING A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL TO FIX THIS UNIT BECAUSE THIS UNIT IS HIGH VOLTAGE WHEN IT'S RUNNING AND HAS VERY HIGH POTENTIAL TO KILL YOU. BE VERY SAFE WHILE INSPECTING ANY FUSE FOR CONTINUITY (0OHMS OF RESISTANCE ON YOUR METER.) NOTE THAT SOME THERMOSTATS IN THIS UNIT LOOK LIKE TCOS.

I have a Galaxy 721.65022400 microwave oven. It is currently working fine but I have heard of numerous cases of microwaves causing fires. Do you know of any such reports or recalls involving this...


That one is made by LG for Whirlpool and rebranded Galaxy to be sold by Sears as a Kenmore.

(Confused yet?)

The majority of shorting keypads I've heard have been in Samsungs and Samsung-made ovens, especially GEs.

You can find recall information at each manufacturer's Web site, or visit recalls.gov.

Was heating something when it made a zinging noise and now thothing is working no lights or power


My same microwave did this about a week ago... repair people said the part that surrounds a fuse had burned through. 350 to fix it, I am considering just getting a new one since I have now found that mine has had a replacement part fix done after a recall on this microwave. If you have not read the recall info you can find it easily by doing a search for Kitchenaid Microwave recall. There will be a small green square sticker by the serial number if yours had had the recall repair done already. Mine had but I still have had this recent problem even after the recall repair.

My mothers Kenmore countertop microwave oven caught on fire late one evening. She remembers nothing of the fire circumstances as she was in a burn center for six weeks. My sister had the same model...


There is a GE/Kenmore recall: http://injurylaw.reganfirm.com/2007/12/articles/defective-products/cpsc-notice-ge-ge-profile-kenmore-microwave-ovens-recalled/. I don't know if your relative's models are involved. I suggest that you file an incident report with the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

When microwave wss turned on, there was no heat but smoke


Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch and fuse.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).

Microwave oven will not work


Seems like I've answered this before, but the MR5493G is subject to a recall due to defective keypad (membrane switch) and can be seriously dangerous.

See: www.allworldauto.com/recalls/samsung_microwave_mr5493g_recalls_1420-10455-1.html

The MR1032BB is also under recall. See: www.motorbeat.com/model/samsung+microwave/mr1032bb/

If neither is covered under the recall, you should be able to order new keypads here: http://www.samsungparts.com/search/search.asp

If not, we'd be happy to help you. You'll find a link to our site in our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Samsung MR6699GB


This model was one of many subject to a recall due to defective membrane keypads.

Details of the recall are here: http://www.allworldauto.com/recalls/NHTSA_03E044000__SAMSUNG_MICROWAVE_MR6699GB_recall_55168.html

Long story short, please unplug it and contact Samsung with you model and serial number at 800-932-3837.

If your serial number was not one subject to a recall, E2 usually means a temperature sensor problem but it may also mean you have a bad door switch.

If it's not in the recall, please post back and I can give you info on checking the other parts.
