The Viking VMOS200 is essentially a rebranded Sharp R-530E.

One or both of these service manuals should cover disassembly and location of the bulb:

SOURCE: vmos200 microwave-set microwave timer goes down no power but when open switch is pushed in a little bit it works holding it in slightly

On these, this is usually due to a failing bottom door switch, or its mount. Sometimes the door can also get misaligned due to slamming.

See my help file on door switches here.

The Viking VMOS200 is essentially just a rebranded Sharp R-530E-series oven. The R-530E service manual is here and it's helpful in working on your unit.

All the internal parts will be the same, but outer parts are cosmetically different.

The timer works but nothing else does


Have you checked the door safety intelock switches? This is the number one reason for no heat when all else works.

If the tiny contacts are burned, they cannot tell the oven that the door is closed. Door not closed, the magnetron will not come on ... no heat. forget what you know about the door, the switches must function properly to tell the OVEN the door is closed. Check them with a contunity checker or a VOM, if you have one. You will have to remove the cover to find the switches.

Our Viking VMOS200 just stopped working. The lights and the countdown timer work, but no fan noise and no turntable spin.


it has nothing to do with the magnetron. first you have to fix step one. then you will know if the magnetron is bad. its one or two of the primary switches on the bottom of the switch tower. usually with these mw if you dont press cancel to stop the mw, and you just push the latch to stop it, those wires heat up and cause the microswitches to burn and loose proper contacts.

put a cup of water in the mw. set it to one minute and as its counting down. push on the latch LIGHTLY, as to not fully open the door and you will hear the magnetron kick on and the turn table start to rotate

Viking model VMOS200 after i put in cooking time and hit start, count down bignes and lights comes on but no running sound and no heat inside.


The Viking VMOS200 is a rebranded Sharp R-530ES. The R-530ES service manual is online here.

You almost certainly have a failed bottom door switch, or that switch's mount is damaged.

See the service manual and this file:

Re. Viking DMOS200 1100 watts microwave oven does not turn on


I'm guessing that's a VMOS200?

If so, that's a rebranded Sharp R-530ES (as is the Dacor DMO2420S) and its secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or that switch's mount is bad.

See this file on door switches. If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

The Sharp R-530E service manual will aid you in disassembly and it is here.

Viking VMOS200, 1 year old


That would be a bad primary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is often under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

If you only need a switch, you can order part # QSW-MA085WRE0 from Tritronics.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

Viking microwave VMOS200 timer works but no microwave or turn table


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

The square piece you mention is the waveguide cover and it will need to be replaced. It provides important protection for the magnetron.

To buy one, you can contact Viking here or call 1-888-845-4641.
