Question about Amana HDC18 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

We own an Amana HDC18 commercial microwave. Lately, it has begun sparking intermittently between the door and the floor. There looks to be a thin spot in the coating on the floor right at the bend on the edge near the door opening. It doesn't spark everytime, but it is unnerving. Any ideas? Can the thin spot be repaired?

The gasket holding the ceramic floor plate may be damaged. If so, it will need to be replaced, or clean the area thoroughly and apply caulk.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to 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.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Hello,

I regularly repair Amana commercial microwave ovens.

  • What is the FCC ID number from the tag?

  • What is the Manufacturing number (like P76695, etc.)?

  • Is it making any unusual noises?

  • Is it running quieter or louder than usual?

Rc17 commercial microwave, display shows door even when door is closed.what can i do to resolve


Possible that the door lock switch is stuck and so is not releasing even after the door has opened. Look inside after disconnection of power to the microwave at the place where the door locks. Tap into the lock to release the switch . If the switch is jammed or damaged it must be taken out and replaced.

F5 error code on amana microwave hdc18


The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour.

Next I would check the door switches and mounts: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt

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 still have trouble, I would suspect a problem with the controller. We regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service.
