@ Ernesto- Your troubleshooting is largely accurate but you are assuming too much; most homeowners don't even have a primitive VOM (digital or analog) at home and few of us have a capacitance meter on hand.
Missing is a warning for the DIY 'tech' is to mention that most meters will not zero out lead resistance so there will nearly always be a few 10s of an Ohm of lead resistance that one can see by shorting the leads on the X1 range.

With an appliance that can be replaced for a couple hundred bucks, even parts costs with shipping can make too many repairs uneconomical, not to mention the time in finding them.

Make this test and fix it. use the multimeter. God bless you

  1. Check the power diode This electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
  2. High voltage capacitor Responsible for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave. Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires replacement.
  3. Damaged magnetron Responsible for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
  4. Thermal Cutoffs Examine the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

My Oster microwave (model #OGG21401) doesn't heat. When operating the light will turn on and the carousel will turn but food will not get hot. Can you provide a solution to my problem? Thank you.


Check the door safety interlock switches for proper operation. #1 trouble with microwaves that operate in all respects but no heat.

Hello, is this a two electrical filament hot plate? Also, is this range stove/oven? I'm a little confused here on what exactly what you are referring to hot plate or cook stove with electrical burners and oven. If it a really old hot plate with one burner look at the plug there could be a fuse in it. If it is electrical range then check the control board and see they a fuse on. If not, check the voltage with a volt meter. Be very careful here there two phase that is 240 Volts AC. The voltage will be split between the two l20 hot legs AC which is 120 degrees out of phase in respect to each other; in other words, don't both of them don't let them touch each other.


If it a kitchen stove I'm fairly sure that the control board is shot and with this not operating it will not open the current/voltage relays for the electrical burners. REMEMBER YOU ARE DEALING WITH 240 VOLT AC...BE CAREFUL.... GB....stewbison

Hi,
This is a problem with the 'Motor Run Capacitor'

What you suggest is exactly what happens when this part fails.

Unplug - and look carefully around the connections to the compressor - there should be a cylinder with 2 connections on it. Read what value it says (like 250V 50pf) - and order a replacement from a parts store.

Fit it any way round - it doesnt matter.

plug back in and should work 100%

Cost about - $5

you need to remove the outer cover,then carefully discharge the high voltage capacitor with 2 insulated screwdrivers or an insulated jumper wire,then test this and the high voltage diode and the internal ceramic fuse for continuity

Microwave comes on but turn table doesnt turn and it doesnt heat up


That's almost certainly a defective secondary interlock (top door switch) or maybe its mount is loose or broken.

See this file for help on checking door switches and where to get replacements.

My microwave comeson but food dosant get hot? I looked thers two blower wheels in upper back that doesn not come on but the blower on the side does?


the blower with two wheels hav nothing to do with your problem / the single blower cools the mag . and thats ok . no cooking is caused by no hi voltage like a bad cap or diode. most common. and sometimed the mag itself . the door switches can cause this but if the single side fan is going then there probably ok . I think its a hi voltage problem. ****

The inside light does not come on


If the light doesnt come on and it heats and the turn table spins then it is just a bulb.

If there is no light no heat and the turn table doesnt turn then there is a monitor switch that is bad.
