    I have same problem with Superba Microwave. Door seems to close OK but when you try and start the oven it says "door" and will not function. Acts as if the door is open when it is not. Just happened after months of use without this ocurring. :-(

Error E7 : F1 GMC275PDs07. Microwave works normally but will not heat. Magnetron changed out and still will not heat.


If your microwave is a 220 then reset the breaker by turning it off for 10 seconds and then back on. Then check it. Since you replaced the magnetron, the signal to the mag is interrupted. Did you replace the control panel? If so, then look to see if it is wired back in order. Does the fan operate when you open and close door? If not, then check door switch.

This KitchenAid combination wall oven and microwave unit was purchased in 2002. Except for having to replace a fuse in 2004, it worked fine until the microwave started acting up recently. In September...


Good Question. I work on all brands of appliances, and I swear by KitchenAid-Whirlpool appliances. That being said, I do not recommend oven-microwave combinations, because the ovens will last 30 to 40 years, but the microwaves start having major repairs from 6-10 years on. I would bite the bullet and put in a separate Panasonic microwave (with an inverter) and a seperate KitchenAid Oven. You also need to install a 2000 Joule or higher surge protector, for your microwave oven. Panasonic microwave ovens are better than the KitcheAid ovens at this time.
I would suspect that the touch panel-control board failure may have been caused by the repairman, just because the timing is a little too close to the mag repair. No way to tell you for sure, and I myself have had control board failures the same day that we changed a light bulb, so anything is possible. Usually a factory defect is going to show up before 8 years. In the last 4 years in the greater Seattle area, 70 - 80% of our business is from power surges hitting the electonics in the different appliances, so this could also have been what has caused your repairs. On a 240 volt Oven, the only way to protect it from power surges is to have a whole-house surge protector installed on your house electrical panel. You still need to have individual surge protectors, above 2000 joules, for your appliances that are 120 volts. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Hello we have bosch hbc 86 and every time i want to turn on the microwave it suddenly stops, even when im trying to defrost,it starts and then in 3 seconds it turns off, please do you have a solution for...


My HBC 86 showed this behavior, after a fuse for the microwave operations was blown (remove the top cover and you will see it on a board close to the door). It's an 8A, medium speed. There might be different reasons, why the fuse is blown. In my case, the switches that detect whether the oven door is closed or open caused the problem. There are two connected with the microwave, one on the left (a bipolar switch) and another on the right. The switches will cause a short-circuit (and thus a blown fuse), if the left one detects an open door and the right one a closed door - it's an additional security feature. The problem can be caused by a blocked or slowly reacting switch. You might want to clean/replace the switches and/or put the right switch as far as possible away from the door so that it detects a close later (and open earlier). A good thing for testing: the problem occurs without actually starting the microwave.

Its work for 2 min and turns off and cool down and turns back on and work for another 2 min


Hello,

Make sure oven is plugged in properly.
Check that door closes completely and its latch is aligned.
Check that interlock switch in door works properly.
Check the power cord to make sure it is firmly plugged into the outlet, if the microwave is not working. If this is acceptable, check to make sure the door closes correctly. There should be a click and the door should not reopen without pushing a button or exerting at least a little energy to pull it from the latch.
Check the oven settings. Make sure the settings are set to 100 percent and the food should begin to cook properly.

Most importantly, check the control panel because it is possible that there is bridge on the control panel that is why it restart itself every 2 minutes.

Take care.

KitchenAid Architect Series KEBC107KSS Electric Single Oven problem error F1E7

1 Answer

Interior oven light won't shut off.


Hi, i would check the pressure switch and its connection as well. either the switch is malfunctioning or the wires and connectors are corroded. simply replacing the wires or switch will fix this issue. the switch is usually located on the rim of the inside of the oven door. it will make contact with the oven door and as the oven door closes, the pressure switch is depressed inwards, thus, opening the circuit and cutting power to the light.

Please rate and god bless:)
