To cheak it over you will need to remove from wall and then take cabnet off.When you get it off there will be 2 thermostats bypass and run see if heats up make sure you put a cup of water in it so there is a load.If you bypass them and still no heat you will need a ohm meter to cheak the door switches there will be around6 or so.Make sure you short out the capacitor with a insulated handlescrew driver by touching across before servicing hope i helped :)

I hv a 24ltr Sharp Carasoul Microwave. Few days back, its plate stopped working, but its heating the food fine. Why has the plate stopped rotating? Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate...


> Why has the plate stopped rotating?

The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You order Sharp parts Encompass here or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

> Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate is not rotating?

No.

Usually when it doesn't het there is a problem with either the magnetron or one of the power tranistors. You would have to get a shop to tell you what the problem is as it can be a few things. If you have warrenty either maytags or from the store just find out from the store/maytag where the repair depot is. They will either repair or replace it. If no warrenty then don;t do anything without getting an estimate. It may be just as cheap to buy a new microwave.

If it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty and you should contact the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Some have longer warranties, and that will be covered in your owner's manual.

My xl1800 spacesaver microwave makes a loud squeaky sound when it's running. When I stop it I can hear the spinning slowing down and the sound goes away until I restart it. I'm afraid that it may blow up....


HI, this may be just an isolated issue that concerns the integrity of the fan housing, or fan itself. the motor may be failing slowly. A mis-aligned fan shroud can cause this as well.

I recommend removing the cover to check for any visible signs of misalignment around the fan housing. if the housing is not shifted or loose, the fan motor will be the culprit.

Have it replaced asap, in this case.

Microwave does not heat/cook


hi

power spikes are very damaging to a microwaves internal parts, it sounds like your transformer and/or magnetron are blown. if the unit is out of warranty I would recommend calling a repairman or getting a new microwave (the transformer & magnetron are expensive and dangerous to work on) also get a small single plug surge protector for the new one.
