LG microwave intermittently runs


I would try troubleshooting the "defrost circuit". The behavior sounds like the microwave is cooking in the defrost mode, where it actively cooks then stops allowing the food to rotate and the heat to spread then actively cooking again.

Own Whirlpool microwave model MH7100XY, everything works on it, however it does not heat anything, heard a small pop and after that it does not warm or cook anything?????


The pop sound is an indicator the magnetron is gone that heats the food. It is cheaper to replace the microwave oven than have it repaired.

GE SCA1001KSS 02 microwave blows fuse.


this is a list of possible causes. Defective interlockswitch or misaligned door, shorted HV capacitor, shorted HV diode, these are top three things that will cause the main fuse to blow when you start the microwave. the humming you hear is from the diode or magnetron. To be safe you have to discharge the HV capacitor here is what you'll need and how to do it. You will need a resistor 100K ohms 25watts or a a string of smaller ones to add up to that. Solder one end of the resistor to a well insulated clip lead of 2 to 3 ft. long.Solder the other end toa well insulated contact point as a #14bare copper wire about 2 inches long and secure the resistor to a piece of 2ft pvc pipe with electrical tape clip the other end of the clip lead ground to a unpainted spot on the chassis of the microwave and use the pvc pipe as a handle and touch each side of the capacitor to discharge a couple seconds at a time switching back and forth. after a minute or so take a well insulated screwdriver and touch each side of the capacitor at the same time and if you have no arcing, popping and such it is safe to take off and replace

KitchenAid KCMS145J Microwave Door Latch Broke


I downloaded a parts schematic of the door latch assembly and thought I would determine the broken part, order a replacement and install same. As soon as I started to remove the shell of the unit to get at the latch assembly, I discovered non-standard fasteners are used. My wife advised me to stop and take it to a service center because she did not want me to mess up the containment of the radiation! Thanks for your interest. MB

My GE spacemaker was mistakenly hooked up to 220 volts in my RV.


OK, bad news 1st. It's likely that since you've had 220 V-AC connected to a 110 V-AC microwave, meaning the neutral was energized and electronic components (diodes, resistors, capacitors, etc.) that weren't designed for that, are likely toast. Not to mention the expensive and critical Magnatron likley being cooked (no pun intended) as well.

Since you're capable of undertaking the repairs, it comes down to the issue of time versus cost - that is to say, is it worth spending a lot of money to buy all the damaged parts, when you can likely buy a new microwave for less than the sum of the parts!

IE: There's a a company in Florida, Appliance Direct, selling even the high end over the range micros in stainless steel, for under $300, (plus s&h).

So, unless you really just want to repair this for the fun and satisfaction of accomplishment, I'd say it'd be more economical to buy a new one and use this as a donor machine, or save for a rainy day basement project.

I don't consider the cost/value of my time when doing a repair at home, since I'd have to pay someone else if I didn't do it. However, in this case, I'd have to believe the time it'll take to go through the entire microwave to identify all the faulty parts and components and contol boards, keypad, display panel, etc., will far exceed what I'm even willing to spend hunkered down at my workbench, just determining what I need to order.

Soooo, What's the good news you say? Well the good news would be:

1) You decide to fix it and you'll have a good story to tell friends everytime you use the microwave (once you fix it)!

2) You decide to scrap it, buy a new one and save youself a good couple of weekends fiddling and cursing as you go part-by-part through the whole machine - AND... you have a good story to tell friends everytime you use the NEW microwave (once you buy one!)

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

PS: If you want to get an idea of the cost of parts for this, go to searspartsdirect.com and enter in your full model number to see a line drawing and parts (w/prices) list for it.

Cooktop/Countertop lights will not turn off


Whirlpool told you wrong. Part number is #4158940 is a door switch, but that's not the problem.

They'll sell you parts or refer you to a local servicer, but they won't help you repair your unit.

On this particular model, the solid state relay PH1 near the bottom right corner of the board will be the culprit.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week with a one-year guarantee.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
