Question about Hamilton Beach Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

How come my microwave stopped working?

I have a Hamilton Beach HB-P90D23AL-DJ 900 watt microwave and it was working perfectly fine and then a few days ago, it stopped working. I kept telling my mom that she wasn't supposed to put anything on top of the microwave and i think she forgot that she wasn't supposed to use it with items on top of it. I have a feeling she used the microwave when there were items on top of it 'cause when i took the items off, they were warm. Could that have anything to do with it? I thought it was too messy, so i cleaned it out this morning and nothing happened. The buttons work, but the inside of the microwave does not work. Also, when we've tried to test it again, the microwave doesn't heating sound it's supposed to and the turntable doesn't turn either. My mom and I don't know what happened, but is it possible it could have stopped working by putting things on top of it?

Seems this is only a coincidence and there is no possibility that items on top of the microwave could have caused this malfunctioning.

Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if the switch contact are not good then it will not trigger the processor to switch on the waveguides. If the lights or fan work without any display or action of program being triggered to start then it can be a possible fault on the main board or the processor. Sometimes insect secretion can short the board and display panel and so the processor can work in such an erratic manner. If so clean, solder and reset the board. Now identify the parts by clicking this link: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/microwave/a/5/141/identifying-microwave-parts.html

If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron. Check this link to know how a microwave works:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/microwave/a/5/1443/how-a-microwave-oven-works.html

So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off. Check the wave guide covers, if food had deposited
then it must be checked or replaced. See link:
http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/microwave/a/5/1146/how-to-replace-a-microwave-guide-cover.html

Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on; use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely
