Definately replace power cord. I work with these microwaves all the time and if you don't it will cause a chain reaction and the fuses will explode into tiny sparks. This is coming from an expert

After relocating my generator isn't putting out the power that it did.

If you used a longer drop cord it may not be heavy enough. It is possible it is a voltage drop if the cord is longer.

The power light no longer turns on, despite it being plugged in. What may be the problem? A fuse?

Yes, it can be a fuse (usually a 20-amp fuse), or it can be a thermal cutoff device (called a TCO or thermostat) that is usually located above the cooking cavity (under the outer panel).

I need a replacement cord for a H-134, Series J hot plate, where do I find one

You are in luck because most small appliance cords are pretty generic. You can go on line, do a web search " replacement power. cords small appliances". Also you can go to a local 'old fashion' hardware store. They will probably have it.

Not heating


Power Supply

Check whether there is a proper power supply. Look to see whether the cord is connected to a grounded 3-prong outlet and the cord is fully plugged in. If the electrical system is built-in and no power cord is visible, replace or reset the household fuse or circuit breaker.

Microwave Functions

Some basic microwave operational steps may affect whether the microwave is heating. Open and close the microwave door, as the unit will not function with the door open, and push "Stop/Clear" to cancel any previous settings, such as the timer, which do not heat the microwave oven.

Setting the Microwave

Once the power to the microwave has been reset, or verified as working, and the microwave is ready to run, select a new cook cycle and press "Start" to see if the microwave begins to run and cook food as expected. Allow the food to cook for the alloted time and then open the microwave door and check to see if the food has cooked or heated. Choose a longer cooking time and restart the microwave if food is heating but is cooking slowly.


If all efforts to troubleshoot the function and power to the microwave still do not get the appliance heating food as expected, there may be a repair issue that needs to be addressed. Contact professional technician for advice.

I have a Westinghouse microwave WST3501 and need a longer electric cord..any suggestions ?

A person with electrical experience can splice in an added amount of cord, but I would not recommend any more cord than needed, since too long a cord can affect the current and possibly lead to overheating and damage.

And I do NOT recommend permanently running a microwave off an extension cord. That's very dangerous.

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

Inside the microwave is a fuse. If you can, try plugging the microwave into a different outlet (use an extension cord). If it does not power on, you have likely blow the fuse. If you are technical, you may look into replacing the fuse yourself (you will have to remove some parts of the microwave exterior to get to the fuse). Otherwise, if no longer in warranty, you will need to have a shop or handyman replace fuse.
