Microwave model RMV320SS clock/timer light dim


For Viking RVM320SS, that would be a fault in the backlight circuit.

If you're in the US or Canada, I regularly repair and upgrade these with the aim of correcting and preventing display errors. For details, feel free to contact me via my site below.

Always include your FULL model number*, FCC ID number*, and detailed symptom information. * from the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the oven (or send a clear photo of tag)

Chances are you have a shorted cook relay, especially if you get error code "F6."

The Microwave runs for a short time then cuts out. The HV coil on the circuit board has an electrical overheating smell.


Hi hansb52.

With out any more information, ie make model, etc, I'll just guess it's a Panasonic. If that's true, then your inverter board is bad. Some models had free replacement boards as an "upgrade", along with a couple of other parts. Without that missing information I can't add more.

Let me know.

Broken over-the-range microwave oven handle


Both brands you mention are made by South Korean companies.

GE's are made by Samsung, and most Whirlpools are made by L.G., although I have seen some of each made by Daewoo, another Korean company.

I personally recommend L.G. and Samsung, but I'm a little leery of Samsungs or any brands that have any one-touch type capability. If the keypad shorts, they can start by themselves, and that's very dangerous when there's no one nearby.

Daewoo / E-wave / Magic Chef microwaves seems to have a lot of keypad failures, too.

Although I like Panasonic a lot, I wouldn't recommend their inverter-based models due to the complexity, which means an increased chance for failure.

Sharps are good if you have a recent one without display toruble (or let us repair & upgrade yours) and Sharp makes Dacor, Viking, and Wolf microwaves.

CONCERNING YOUR HANDLE PROBLEM

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

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

Bought an Intellowave Microwave a couple of years ago and the 'white' paint under the glass plate has come off. I always buy LG products as I have a 106cm TV,had a 68 cm TV but wanted to upgrade for the...


Normally this is due to spills, excess moisture or insufficient ventilation.

The chipped area should be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

Lightning inside microwave oven


You better be carefull my friend or you will start glowing in the dark!! LOL Just kidding. But I wont kid about how dangerous that metal cylinder can be with the holes in the top. Thats the magnatron. It has very high voltage going to it and you should never ever touch any wires going to it even if its unplugged as theres a capacitor in there that holds a charge for a time. f the oven is over several years old, Im sure the magnatron will cost more then a new oven, after you add labor and such. It just migfht be time to upgrade to a new microwave?? Good Luck
