Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have an Emerson (2 weeks old). It heats well but there is a thumping noise when the table rotates and sometimes the table will operate with a jerking motion.

    I tried repositioning the table and then found that the table itself was warped causing the thumping noise and jerking motion. I replaced the table and now all is well.

It sounds like the table is'nt positioned properly on the base it sits on, most are not attached and can be easily removed for cleaning purposes, try repositioning the table on the base.

Why


The table motor belt may have detached which stops table from rotating and the magnetron control shuts off the heating if table does not move. Need model number etc for the microwave. It is not recommended to open the units unless you are qualified technician or understand the operation of the microwave oven. The voltages and waves can harm human body.

When I press the start the button the turn table inside microwave is not turning and there is not heat on the food. But the light is on and the clock is working. What do you think is the problem? and what...


The turn table motor of your microwave is defective already and also the magnetron - the source of generated heat of the microwave is also defective. But before assuming that magnetron is dead, check the high voltage fuse it may be blown and replace the fuse (if it is blown) it with similar rating. I hope I help you with your microwave problem.

Microwave making dull thumping noise when NOT in use


I called a technician out today. Seems like the problem is the circuit board. It wasn't working properly and the sound is the fan. The fan is supposed to turn on when the microwave is in use and off when it is not. In this case, the fan continued even when the microwave was not in operation. A new circuit board has been ordered and will replace the old one when it arrives. For now, I can still use the microwave, but I have to unplug it everytime I finish heating something up. A little inconvenient, but at least it'll still heat my food up in the meantime.

Hi I have an Emerson microwave oven MW8998B. The turn table will not rotate while cooking. The smaller bags of popcorn just burn the bag. Does this need a repairman or can I fix it myself. Also, I am able...


Hi, I had the same problem with my Emerson microwave. As I rent out the house, and the turntable stopped working while I was away, my rental agent bought another Emerson microwave. On my return I tried using the new (brown) plastic turntable on the old microwave, and found it worked perfectly. Maybe it would be possible for you to order a replacement turntable part. Hope this helps. Good luck, Rosalind

Kenmore microwave 721.80803401 rotating table pops up and stops turning.


I would bet the arm ("ring assembly") is either worn or warped from heat? and is not meshing well with the motor shaft or glass tray.

That is part number 4351W1A003A and you can get it for only $6.30 (compared to over sixteen via Sears) from Tritronics.

The motor is part # 6549W1S018C and if it's the culprit, you can get that for $24.84 from Tritronics, compared to almost thirty-two from Sears.

You should look again and see how loose the arm is on the shaft and which might be worn or warped or out of perpendicular. I think that one of these is the problem.
