Hi friend,

sounds like you have a circuit board problem,,,,,i have seen many its giving it short circuit...so only humming sound is comming on .....it may not be fuse ...
because if it is it doesn't sound humming.....its abnormal to say it is fuse,check for any burnt mark in board....it may be the fault....if anything sounds wrong...contact me(its defnitely a circuit problem not fuse)

thank u........

If you take the cover off of the microwave the fuse is located near where the power cord comes into the set. sometimes covered in a plastic housing. You will need an ohm meter to check the fuse as they are not clear but white. If the fuse checks ok, look for thermal sensors that could be bad. There are 2 or 3 of them in most microwaves. One on the magnetron and 1 or 2 on the outside of the oven cavity. They are round and have 2 wires going in and out the top of them. Also chaeck them with an ohm meter.

No power at all


Yes! the microwave has a internal fuse that has probably blown, due to a bad interlock switch, "very common" or might have gone at random.

HOTPOINT COUNTERSAVER PLUS RVM 1435 DISPLAY READS F3


"F3" on a GE / Hotpoint microwave means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

On RVM1435-series microwaves, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.


In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (RVM1435XX###) from the tag on the oven here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

Some connectors on the relays have a lock:

Hotpoint RVM 225 BL 002 power reset. Internal breaker?


There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

I would suspect the fuse or magnetron thermostat.

How do I remove my Hotpoint microwave RVM 44004? Two bolts visible from the cabinet down into the microwave. Removed them with zero result. No other fasteners visible in top or side cabinets.


It is much easier for two people to remove the microhood. If attempting alone, please move the range out so you can get under the micro to support the weight. If the range stays in place, protect the top from damage.
1. make a landing site to the side to protect the floor when putting the micro down after removal.
2. Disconnect the power cord in the cabinet above.
3. loosen the two screws in the bottom front corners of the cabinet above. When removed the front of the micro will drop, be ready for the weight. Busy times, tools in hands microwave coming down in front.
4. tilt the front down. pull the cord out of the upper cabinet.
5. with micro still tilted down in front, lift the back of the unit upward to free it from the wall plate.
6. remove the fasteners in the wall plate and remove.
Congrats, begin celebration.

My microwave turns on, the fan and light work, but it doesn't heat the food.


HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the blower)))

WE have a Hotpoint Microwave mounted over the stove and it is not vented to the ouside! It's model #RVM 1435! Can it be vented outside?


yes,
you will need to tzke the unit down
look on the back upper middle
you will see your vent fan
open the cover
pull the fan up
and rotate it 90 degrees, but you will need to install a vent for it
you can also turn it 180 degrees if you on an outside wall and the ven is directly behind the machine
