Re: the microwave starts, then stops 2 seconds later

I tried a solution posted on another posting by placing the conductive plastic behind the control panel and it worked.

Re: the microwave starts, then stops 2 seconds later

I'm having the same problem with my JVM1650. I paid over $300 for it about 2 years ago. It was manufactured in the summer of 2005. It goes on for 2 seconds then shut down and I need to reset the time and date. Why is there no recall? Has any gone to the BBB?

Sharp Carousel R530BK microwave won't cook unless light pressure is kept on the door button.

There are door switches and one of them is evidently out of adjustment or the little actuator arm on it is.

Microwave stops after 59 seconds

Check that a "favourite" setting has not been selected. The unit may think that is the time that you want to cook. Im not sure about your model but see if there is any clear or cancel buttons to clear any pre programmed selections. If not, unplug the machine for 15 minutes to reset the controller and try it again.

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.

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.

Burns my popcorn constantly. is there a different setting i can put it on?


Solution to your microwave problem is given as below.

* 1 Set your Daewoo microwave on a countertop near an electrical outlet and plug it in. Open the door and place the circular roller guide in the center of the oven cavity, then place the glass cooking tray over it.

* 2 Set your food on a microwave-safe dish and then put the dish on the cooking tray and close the door. Make sure that it latches properly.

* 3 Turn the upper knob to select a power level. Power levels include "Defrost," "Med-High," or "High." If your Daewoo has a touch pad, touch the "Microwave" button once to set the highest power level. Touch it consecutive times to lower the power level.

* 4 Turn the lower knob to set the cooking time. For cooking times less than two minutes, turn the knob up past the two-minute mark, then back to the correct time. For touch pad models, enter in the cooking time with the numerical keys and then press "Start."

* 5 Open the door at any time to stop the cooking and check the temperature of your food. Shut the door to automatically continue cooking, or turn the timer knob to the right to add more time. For touch pads, press the "Stop/Clear" button, then key in a new cooking time and press "Start."

* 6 Open the door when the timer reaches the "Off" position and take out your food.

Have a Proctor Silex small crock pot, no manual. Setting are Off, 1, 2 and "AutoShift". There is no timer. How can it be set to (1) be sure to cook the food long enough and (2) stay on / keep...

You can find a Use and Care Guide for your product at the following website. You will need to locate the model number of your crock point. Select Slow_Cookers in the product field; Select your model number and click on Submit.

A pdf file of your Use and care Guide will be provided; note they are scanned files and some are of poor quality.

Model 36400 has a similar control to your model. The Guide provides a table of the time to cook at settings 1 (low), 2 (high) and Auto Shift. Auto Shift starts at the high setting and then decreases to the low setting. The time to cook at Auto shift is in between the time taken at the low and high settings. The low and Auto Shift settings are designed for long cook times at a simmer. On the high setting some foods like soups will come to a boil and may need stirring during cooking.

The crock point has no auto turn off and will keep foods at a simmer when on the low or Auto Shift settings. With some practice you will learn how much time this will take for various foods.

The sure way is to use a tip sensitive digital instant-read thermometer to check the final temperature of the food. Check according the guidance provided by the Partnerships Food Safety Education:

When you start the microwave it starts normally with a low hum, then a couple of seconds into it the hum gets louder. After the cook time has expired the food is still frozen. Is there something I can do...

Replace the magnetron by the sounds of it. The hum gets louder a second or so into "Cooking", that would comply with the magnetron heaters coming on and working into a dead magnetron. It could be capacitor or diode of course.

You just place in the food product into a non metallic bowl and set the timer and press start. Not sure what else you are wanting to know.

Let me know how this works out for you.

Clear the cook cycle when you remove the food. Some microwaves pick up where they left off, so you don't have to keep pressing buttons.
