    Many thanks Tekwiz. Your suggestions have been extremely helpful and informative. As the costs to repair would not be far off buying new, I've decided to scrap it. Can you recommend any decent makes, with stainless steel interior, at least 25L and 850W power

Possible causes include a blown fuse or high voltage diode. A bad magnetron or power transformer are also possible. I recommend taking the oven to a repair facility, or scrapping it & getting a new one. Do not attempt to repair this yourself, as microwave ovens have voltages present inside which are INSTANTLY LETHAL, & there are no user servicable parts inside.

I have a GE profile PEM31SM3SS that heats intermittently. This is the second time it has stopped heating but in the past has started to work again sometimes months later. Is there any fix I can do short of...

do this test and fix it. God bless you

  1. Check the power diodeThis electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
  2. High voltage capacitorResponsible for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave. Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires replacement.
  3. Damaged magnetronResponsible for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
  4. Thermal CutoffsExamine the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

My belling microwave oven will not heat up even though it still powers up. I bought it 3 years ago and is in perfect condition otherwise. A week before it stopped functioning, I accidentally left it on for...

Leaving the unit on with nothing inside probably was the cause of the current failure. What happens is RF reverse flows into the magetron and causes the power diode on the capacitor to fail or the capacitor itself fails. This is not a difficult or expensive repair. IF by chance you attempt self repair make sure the unit is unplugged and that you ground the capacitor 3 times before prceeding with any testing.

You disconnect one end of the diode and read across the terminals. One direction it will read like a wire and the other it will read open. (Good) If it reads continuity in both directions it has failed. If it reads open in both directions it has failed.

Checking the capacitor you simply probe across the terminals with a meter watching for a jump on the meater EACH time the tests leads are REVERSED. No Jump leads reversed = bad capacitor.

I tried looking up parts for Belling in UK but was unsuccessful. You can get a replacement diode or capacitor from any appliance parts source. They are NOT brand specific. Just take your old part with you if you find one of them defective.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Microwave blows fuse in microwave mode grill function ok

It is most likely the capacitor has shorted or the rectifier has shorted. Check with ohmeter, but make sure it is discharged first by shorting the capacitor with a wire.

Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 microwave

My Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 Microwave / oven / grill has recently developed a problem. Every time I close the door the turntable starts rotating, even when I'm not using it. It doesn't make a noise, and doesn't seem to be going into any cooking setting, and the light doesn't come on, but it turns until I open the door, when the light comes on and the turntable stops turning. This has only recently started happening, and nothing else seems to be wrong with it, Is this safe or should I get rid of it and buy a new one. The guarantee has expired so repair may be cost prohibitive.

Stopped working during microwave function

First unplug the unit.
The problem is most likely caused by the thermistor (thermal resistor) failing. This device is located at the outlet vent and will cut power if the unit over heat or catch fire. All microwaves have it. You can test it with an ohm meter. You can get a new one from an electronics store like Radio Shack.
You will have to remove the cover to get to it.
This unit may also have a fuse inside, I do not know if this is the one you changed, but you can look at it. You didn't give a model number so I could not point you to a diagram.
