Hotpoint microwave exhaustive fan combined unit - fan not working

Can hear the fan's noise, but can't see anything moving.  I don't have the instruction manual.  Not sure if I operate it correctly (just see a fan hight/low/off button.  press it, hear the noise, can't see anything moving after removing the filter).

Do you feel air flow? That's the key.

Most microwaves have the exhaust fan assembly at the back edge, not up front immediately behind the grille / vent.

Post back if you can give us more detail or have other questions.

Hotpoint Microwave Model RVM1435BD 001- microwave comes on when I open the door.


Many microwaves have similar issues. Usually, (not always) only the light is on and the fan is running, not the section that produces the microwaves. This problem can be caused by the door switches that are out of alignment or a defective control board.

Microwave exhaust fan doesn't really exhause any steam out. Model 721.80042700


The fan is for cooling the magnetron, nothing else. Steam remains in the cavity which is why the door should be left open after cooking to allow the steam to evaporate.

I have a ge above range spacemaker xl1800 it seems to work fine except their is a rattling noise when its running it sounds like a bad fan or something comeing loose it seems like its comeing from under...


The noise you are hearing is due to the fan. The fan is used to cool the magnetron during cooking, and because this fan is not working the magnetron is overheating and the thermal protector is opening, killing power to the unit. All you need to fix this is a new fan blade. The fan blade(look for part #80) is slipping on the motor shaft ( the noise you are hearing).

GE XL 1800

If the blade is broken then you can buy a new one from---

GE FAN BLADE

Please ask for further clarifications.

A Fixya rating would be appreciated if you find it useful.

Thanks

Noise of microwave exhaust fan


You can remove the exhaust turbine unit with one screw and reinstall microwave and buy a braun external exhaust unit that fits over the hole where it is at the roof or wall and all of the noise will be outside and it will actually work. It is weather proof and will **** steam or fumes out like the best vacuum cleaner.
