SOURCE: Abnormal noise produce by Amana microwave RC17

Deart Customer

please undergo the following

Since 30 to 50 percent of the power into a microwave oven is dissipated as heat in the Magnetron, cooling is extremely important. Always inspect the cooling fan/motor for dust and dirt and lubricate if necessary. A couple of drops of electric motor oil or 3-in-One will go a long way. If there are any belts, inspect for deterioration and replace if necessary.
An oven that shuts off after a few minutes of operation could have a cooling problem, a defective overtemperature thermostat, a bad magnetron, or is being operated from very high AC line voltage increasing power to the oven. One interesting note: Since 30 to 50 percent of the power goes out the vents in the back as heat, a microwave oven is really only more efficient than conventional means such as a stovetop or gas or electric oven for heating small quantities of anything. With a normal oven or stovetop, wasted energy goes into heating the pot or oven, the air, and so on. However, this is relatively independent of the quantity of food and may be considered to be a fixed overhead. Therefore, there is a crossover point beyond which it is more efficient to use conventional heat than high tech microwaves

i think the information would help u if so rate me please,otherwise just give it as fixya,Thank u

Amana RC22S2 Cooks but not as well as before. Continually shows Call SERV


It is sensing the unit is not heating properly and telling you to call for service. Resetting will only delay it from showing the error alert again. It has a current sensor on the unit to tell if it is running properly, if not, it gives the error to let you know it is time for repair.

Amana MVH210W keeps blowing fuse


The magnetron is more than likely the problem, or the inverter board if oven is 7 years old or less. If you have a digital meter you can do a rough test on the magnetron, unplug microwave, set meter to ohms, disconnect one wire from magnetron and put the test leads across too points, if reading is .2ohms or less it is good, but if the test shows infinity or open the magnetron is bad, keep in mind it may have a short making the reading misleading.

Error flashing on display KHHS179LSS


If you pull off the top louver (it just pulls straight off) usually (mine does) there is a small technician manual (is a small black plastic bag) on the right side above the control panel. It shows all the error codes and what they mean. It shows how to enter test mode and exit which may clear the error. Hope this helps.

OTR Amana microwave- No power, lights, clock or sounds.


Either your magnetron, cooling fan, or the magnetron thermostat is failing.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Amana / Whirlpool customer service is here.

Please contact them to find your nearest authorized service center.

Microwave oven ACO1860AS


just aquired one just like it for free. they said no heat. took the outer cover off. about 12 screws. pull the main fuse and test it with a continuity tester.thats probably not it if the lights work. its either the magnatron (toshiba 2m248j(gs) or replacement part amana 8205460. mine was a coroded magnatron connection.unplugged it and pluged it back in. heats fine now. if you left it on with nothing in it for any length of time you blew the magnetron. universal magnatron replacements on ebay are $25. 4 screws and a 2 prong connector.

My display reads -SE-


-SE- error means you have a shorted keypad.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you would like to have us do this for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

We're happy to help you and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

I had the same problem and found that the "demo mode" had been enabled. Turned it off and everything worked fine.
