Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have an eden pure gen 3 model that was purchased in Nov. of "09". I thought it had a 5 year warranty but to my surprise it is only 3 so now it's out of warranty and no one will help me. I was given a local repair shop to contact and they want $55 just to diagnose the problem .Then parts and labor if I want them to fix it. When you plug the unit in it does NOTHING! No beeps as it used to do and no lights come on the front panel either. Someone told me it could be the control/circuit board. I found them for sale online for $35 but I hate to buy it and change it without knowing if that is the problem. is there a way to test the board and see if it is in fact bad?

Did you check the fuse ? If that is ok then normally what goes first is a standby transformer on the front board itself. There is thermal fuse located inside the transformer that goes open circuit. A fairly easy and quick fix.

SOURCE: Is a Magnetron something I can replace myself?

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, linked here on Fixya:

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts (if needed) by entering your full model number here:

Also, Whirlpool models have a handy mini-manual inside behind the control panel keypad that is very useful.

If Whirlpool will actually send you the magnetron and motor (not to the servicer on your behalf) then you're really in luck. I'd be very surprised.

We replaced the board behind the control panel. $130.00. If you do this make sure you can put the wires back the right way. My husband finally got it and our micro is working like brand newThanks to all who tried to help.

SOURCE: We have an LG over the range microwave and boiling

We have an LG LMVM2075SB over the stove microwave that we purchased in December, 2007. A few weeks ago, several of the positions on the touchpad stopped working.

I assumed that the problem involved the touchpad itself. I ordered a new one (Part number MFM37134802 - $25.30 plus shipping), and we installed it today. This solved the problem.

J. Adams,Alabama

The installation was not simple. The door has to be removed and disassembled to enable you to get to the connector that connects the touchpad with a circuit board. We heated the old touchpad with a hair dryer and pulled it off (after disconnecting the connector). The new touchpad comes with an adhesive backing. You have to be very careful in placing it because the adhesive is very strong. The touchpad fits in an identation, so the placement of the new one must be perfect.

Failure of the touchpads on these LG models seems to be a common problem. It sounds like a design problem.

We have a 3 year old Cooke and Lewis integrated microwave/grill that has recently stopped working. It starts up but after 5/6 seconds it stops and 'err 5'comes up on the display. Any ideas?

if this was purchased from the likes of B&Q, at the time of purchase, the retailer must ensure that the goods are/were fit for purpose for a period of 6 years from date of purchase. This is regardless of manufactures warranty. Take it back, demand a new one, quoting the above

There is a warranty on all Sharp items. If it is out of warranty by a few days, contact Sharp, not their repairer, ask for advice. You may be pleasantly surprised.

The glass on the microwave door on the outside has slipped down and there is no screws to take apart the door and fix the glass. Does this fall under the warranty? My 5 years is up on 12/01/09.

I would contact customer service (for Amana, Frigidaire, Jenn-Air, Kitchenaid, Litton, Maytag, Roper, Tappan, Thermador and Whirlpool) here about the warranty and to find your nearest authorized servicer.

If not, it's pretty easy to fix this yourself.

There are probably broken tabs on the inner or outer door panel.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

You can find handy exploded views and order parts by model number here.

I would say either the high voltage transformer or magnetron has failed.

Your oven has a 12 month parts & labor warranty and a 5 year warranty covering the magnetron.

If you have an extended warranty (or a long warranty) from your RV dealer, that can help. I'd ask them or check your paperwork.

Otherwise, you can visit Daewoo online or call them at 1-800-323-9668 or 1-800-553-4355 to find parts or find your nearest authorized service center to have them do the work.

In your owner's manual, you should be able to find contact info for Galanz so they can arrange for repair. Hopefully it has a full year's warranty.

Otherwise, I would ask the person who gave it to you what dealer or store they purchased it from, and the store should have contact information for Galanz in your country.

Good luck.

Since it's less than a year from your date of purchase, this should be fully under warranty.

The problem is most likely a bad door switch or door switch alignment, but let GE take care of it for you.

They can connect you with your nearest GE-authorized service center to fix it for you.

It should have a one year warranty, right? If so, Westinghouse should take care of it for you.
