Amana Radarange model ACO1860AS- does not work at all

I have checked circuit breaker, power etc, these are fine. We had a power outage for 6 days, burned the gas stove top beneath the microwave for some of this period. What would be my initial step for solving problem?

Thanks,
KPW

That model would be ACO1860AS-, not AC01860AS by the way. That will make it easier to find info on it.

Chances are the heat from the stove top (when used without having the hood vent exhaust fan on as required) has blown the bottom thermostat/thermistor (called "Thrmst-fix" on the part list) or maybe the oven cavity thermostat.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Accessing some components for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Your owner's manual includes the installation instructions and can be downloaded here.

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

We had a lighting storm a few days ago and now my Amana radarange will not do anything, can this be as simple as a fuze? and if so can that be replaced without removing from the wall? thanks, Dean


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Yes it could certainly be the fuse and that is where i would first check and if it checks out good than you may have a fried controle board or even fried wires inside the microwave
You may even have a bad power inverter also ok
Sometimes the boards can be more expensive than the unit costs you originally so be wise to this ok
keep me posted on what you have found
best regards Mike

My microwave oven keeps tripping the circuit breaker.i replaced the outlet that it plugs into but it still trips it. is there an internal fuse in the oven that may be bad?


If a fuse inside had blown, that would definitely reduce the current flow rather than trip the breaker.
I have replaced several breakers over the years; they no longer last forever.
Try your Amana on a different circuit, not in the kitchen; if that other circuit likes the oven, the breaker is bad. If the alternate circuit breaker also trips, then you have not a blown fuse in the Amana but rather a shorted component inside and repairing the oven will likely cost about the same as replacing it.

We have an older Radarange over-stove microwave oven with touch pad controls. Whenever I boil something without a lid for a longer period, some of the buttons stop working. Usually, they begin working...

OTR Amana microwave- No power, lights, clock or sounds.


Either your magnetron, cooling fan, or the magnetron thermostat is failing.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Amana / Whirlpool customer service is here.

Please contact them to find your nearest authorized service center.

Amana radarange microwave oven 1000 watts not heating.


The two possible causes are a faulty door switch and a bad magnatron. You can pull the top cover off of the unit and check all of the door switches (there are 2-6 of them all on a common rail, me normally closed)). If the door switches all check out, replace the magnatron, diodes, and capacitor.
