    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.

Why would the turntable stop turning and the unit stop heating?


hi,
there is a micro switch that signals when the door is closed. this tells the machine that it's okay to start the turntable and heating process.. if the micro switch breaks or shorts out then the switch does not send the signal so the machine does not work.

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.

Samsung microwave oven turntable doesn't turn now. Is it ok to still use to heat/cook food ? What is the problem with it ?


Yes it just will not cook or defrost very evenly. It is not dangerous however.

Probably the motor or gears that make the turntable go are worn or burnt out.

Turntable will not turn


If everything works, light and micro heating.. then I have 4 possibles for you to check... 1st make sure you don't have a button that allow you to turn the turntable on/off... 2nd take the glass table out and check the center plastic spinner(pull it out) and see if its broken. 3rd your turntable motor is bad, and 4th the relay for your turntable on control board is bad... helpfully that will do it for ya.. good luck.. mike
