Question about Tappan TMT104E1 Microwave Oven
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?
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.
