Question about Viking VMOS200 Microwave Oven
This past Friday, the microwave would not preheat for convection broil. I tried just heating a cup of water, no luck and heating a muffin, no heat.
Microwave was delivered 12-14-05 and worked fine until now.
The microwave clock works, it turns on but does not heat.
For $1,000, I would think these unit would perform much better than this. In my 50 years of married life, we have never had to call for repairs on a microwave. They just run and run - have I been lucky or does the Viking appliances all work like this? Refrigerator was priced at $6995.00 and the ice maker does not turn off till the ice is about 4-5" above the ice container, so it freezes and does not come out thru the door. Every week, I empty the container and start over.
Also, the SIMMER DOES NOT WORK on my gas stove.
Oh, well I am not a happy camper this weekend
Hi this is tech crazy,he solution to the problem is as follows
Sounds like the magnatron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.
The cost of the magnatron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnatron, they replace the whole oven.
There is a possiblity that the circuit that provides power to the magnatron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it appart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.
