The frame either clips in from the front, or it is part of a walloven that the micro is mounted on. Either way, you can disconnect the old unit, and with a bit of finess, (or a good kitchen maker) you can get a new one to fill the space.

Microwave combi oven


Putting any metal object inside any Microwave is a problem, a large metal object destroys a part called the Klystron tube (the part that makes the microwaves), the energy from the tube is reflected back and burns out the Klystron tube. The part is most likely more than the oven is worth when you throw in labor to install it.

The door frame on the microwave is cracked. Can I buy a replacement?


Yes, but the replacement door may cost as much as a new microwave oven. Not sure if it's logical to replace just the door.

I need to know about this product, can we put metal material to inside the microwave?


No, please do not put metal inside your microwave. That is a fire hazard. That can also damage the oven and could get someone close hurt.

Can we use non stick pan in a microwave?


Non-stick pan I think may be surely made of metal. Its always
advised not to use metal pans, dishes, spoons etc inside the
microwave oven. Metals are mainly avoided due to the effect
of the microwaves on the metals.

These ovens uses the microwave radiations generated from a
magnetron. The microwave radiations are reflected off by the
metal surfaces. So if you use metal pans inside the oven, they
act as a microwave antenna that reflects back the radiations to
the magnetron and can cause damage to your oven. Another problem
with the metals inside the oven are due to arcing effect.
The atoms in the metal are ionized and the air gap near them lead
to a lightning like discharge of energy causing sparks. This can
easily cause a fire inside the oven since the food materials may be
easily ignitable under that temperature.

Alternatively you could check the manuals of your oven to confirm
the type of dishes that can be used to cook inside. If no
user manuals are available check manufacturer website.

Considering the safety, its a "No" to use metal pans inside the oven.

MY KITCHEN SUPERBA MICROWAVE/CONVECTION OVEN BEEPING IS ANNOYING


Sorry, I have the same oven and the same complaint. The manual doesn't indicate anything. BTW- the service manual is inside the oven frame, between oven "lining" and the outside sheet metal.

Delonghi microvave replacement bulb, microwave only 6 months old


I got a Delongi Mic form argos too ,model ED8525S-SBD, sounds like a similar problem to what happened to it last year. Issue is that the bulb explodes (mainly due to the very strong spring on the door I think) leaving filament lieing on the metal chassis, hence the trip switch in your fuse box trips.
Didn't manage to find a replacement bulb but at least if you remove the old bits then it will get the machine back up and running and stop the trip tripping!
Take off the top by removing the 4or 5 screws around the outer edge at the back. The bulb sits directly behind the front panel inside its own metal chassis. There is a diamond shaped black plastic flange which the 2 power wires feed onto. 2 metal lugs hold this inside the chassis. straighten the lugs and the bulb holder pulls out. Even with the bulb removed I think there was a blown fuse and I had a further issue with the turntable not turning(this feeds off the same circuit as the bulb). So maybe Argos were right - the machine only cost £80 at the end of the day!

Microwave door shattered


This is not a job you should do. Microwaves are dangerous things and can cause injury. An improperly fitted door will leak. A new door, installed and checked out by a technician is needed here The economics are beyond my area.

Kitchenaid builtin microwave oven # Kemc307KSS


I'm posting this as a solution after I went through several different web sites to and trial & error to fix my "DOOR" error code problem.
The original question I submitted can be summarized: I need to replace the 15A interlock fuse. Can you point me to a manual that describes where this fuse is and how to replace it?

Here's the answer for the KitchenAid KEMC308K series.
1) The service manual is behind the control panel on the left hand side. For my built-in, I turned off the power and removed the oven from the cabinet, exposing the sheet metal shroud. Remove the top piece and there on the left hand side is the service manual.
2) The manual indicates the fuse is in the right rear of the microwave. This is correct, but it is actually accessible through the right side.

As long as I slogged though this, I thought some other people would like to know how to solve the "door" error problem. It could be caused by a faulty control panel, but before going there, the check the switches and fuse in the door interlock circuit. Check this link for a discussion: http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/switch.html

Repair steps:
Remove the rear sheet metal shroud and you see nothing but the back and side of the microwave. Remove the right sheet metal shroud and expose the right side of the microwave. This panel has a bunch of warnings, heed them. However, the are missing one: SHARP EDGES. Think about putting tape on the exposed sheet metal edges. Remove the panel and expose the "guts" of the microwave: Rectifier, wave guide, magnetron, capacitor, and such. The interlock fuse is next to the capacitor contacts. Safely discharge the capacitor (method described in numerous places via google search and the link http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/safety.html ).

After the capacitor is discharged, remove the fuse, verify it is blown using an ohm meter (ceramic fuse - you can't see inside). The fuse is actually (despite what the tech manual says) a 20A 250V fuse. Available at radio shack in a pack of 4 for $2.99. Install the new fuse.

As long as you have this much done, may as well ensure that the microswitches still work. Remove the contacts from the microswitch. There are 2 close to each other. From the 3rd contact to these, one should open when the other should be closed. Ensure that this is true and that when the switch is depressed, the state reverses (the contact that was open is now close & connects to the common). Do this for both door-closed sensing microswitches and replace the wiring to the microswitches. Replace all the microwave side panels and the sheet metal shroud. Turn on the breaker and hopefully, as it was on mine, the "DOOR" error message is gone and it starts up normally.

Oh, when the power comes on the unit runs a self test, lots of blinking lights followed by a power-failure error code when the power comes on. I think it was pf .d=30. Hit cancel and it goes away.

So, this is a pain to do b/c there are about 40 sheet metal screws to deal with and one has to be careful discharging the cap. Pulling the oven out of the cabinet was the hardest part. I build a table at the same height and just slid the entire unit right onto my "work table." If I had to do it again, I'd have the entire thing done in under 30 minutes.

Hope this helps someone else!
