    When you hit Start to
    cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?




    Any unusual noises? Is
    it louder or quieter than usual?



    We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.http://www.microwavedisplay.com/mwd_ad_a...


    What is the model number?



    These answers will help
    me judge whether it's in the high voltage
    section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section
    (door switch or control board relay or connection).

Est the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

Thediode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must bealloweddischarge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenifpower is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting theirtwocontacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

You could probably replace the keypad yourself, as it most likely plugs in. Get the exact part number and have a search for it.

Doen't heat food


More information will be needed to solve this issue. Does the keypad work? What about the interior light or the turntable? Check the internal fuse, and the door interlock switches.

Stopped turning and heating


The problem is one or two bad door switches, "more than likely" the less likely is the keypad control board.

Mistral microwave MUMW23SS has no heat, light comes on, turntable operates OK, tested the megatron and reading 0.4 ohms, tested the internal fuse this is OK any suggestions


The keypad control board is more than likely the problem, if microwave is less than 7 years old the inverter board has been a source of trouble from time to time. When you consider parts cost it will approach if not exceed the value of a new microwave oven.

We have a JVM 1443bk02 ge microwave. Today the turntable stopped working. You can depress the key pad on/off button but that makes no difference for the turntable. How do you test to make sure it is the...


The problem with the turntable could be the following:
  1. Gummed up lubrication or bad bearings. Check to see if there is any food on the turntable spindle.
  2. If that is ok, check to see if the belt is loose or broken.
  3. If that is ok, check the motor. A meter will confirm whether there is power going to the motor, when you depress the keypad on button. Use the AC Volts setting, if you have about 21 VAC and the motor does not work, then the motor is bad.

No turntable, no heat. Light, vent fan and keypad all work...


That would be a problem with your primary interlock switch or its mount.

NOTE: There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

The interlocks are highlighted in the diagram below.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
