SOURCE: frigidaire microwave won t turn off

this is a problem with your programme timer these can be expensive to replace and because of the age you will probably be better buying a complete new unit as you could repair it and you could come across other related problems and could end up spending a fortune sorry i couldnt be any more help

SOURCE: Microwave turns on and counts down but won't heat up/cook

Ok just figured this out! It is a problem with the alignment on the lower door switch. I took the cabinet off and lifted up on the door switch slightly and voila! It works. You could probably fix this without taking it apart, just lift up on the door ever so slightly. I hope this works for you.

SOURCE: Noise of microwave exhaust fan

You can remove the exhaust turbine unit with one screw and reinstall microwave and buy a braun external exhaust unit that fits over the hole where it is at the roof or wall and all of the noise will be outside and it will actually work. It is weather proof and will **** steam or fumes out like the best vacuum cleaner.

My oven is working but the item inside is not heating. If I put 2 minutes, the oven wprks for 2 minutes, but the item inside is as it is without slight heating


It's very likely the high voltage fuse has blown, often because there's a fault in the cook section, or the fuse has metal fatigue. It will be in a thick plastic tube near the transformer and cook capacitor. Turn the oven off and unplug it for 10 mins, then take the cover off. As a precaution, short out the cook capacitor with a screwdriver. The capacitor is near the transformer, usually an oval shaped can. If it's not fuse fatigue, it can be: faulty capacitor (unlikely); faulty protection diode across capacitor, if there is one (very likely, must be replaced same way round as original); faulty rectifier diode from capacitor to chassis (less likely) or a magnetron heater that is leaky to chassis. All these things need to be disconnected, and tested one by one with a 500V insulation tester, because an ohmmeter will often not show faults in high voltage parts. Any leakage at 2200V will blow a fuse. If there's no high voltage fuse, it will blow the mains fuse inside, then nothing will work, but it's not that with yours, since it partly works. The oven can run without the high voltage fuse, just replace it with a wire with nice thick insulation, or with some plastic tubing over it. Anything else that's faulty must be replaced. I get my parts from WES Components at Ashfield in Sydney. Microwave parts in the cook section have high voltage ratings, and must be replaced with at least equal rating components. I just fixed a Samsung microwave with its high voltage cook fuse blown. The rest was ok, so I'd say the fuse wire inside had metal fatigue. I also always put a drop of light oil on both ends of the fan shaft, it runs quieter and faster then.

If the fault happened suddenly, it will be one of the above faults. If the oven is very old, it will have a gradually increasing cook time, as the magnetron wears out. If the cooking time is too long, replace the magnetron, they're only held in with 4 screws or nuts. It must be the same physical fit and at least the same power rating as the oven's rated output power.

Sharp R959SLMA


Could be arcing around HV transformer or even an HV wire, Sometimes an insulator on a capacitor will get old, dusty or breakdown and arc between the terminals. Have you ran this with the cover off to see if you can see any visual arcing??? If it cooks sure sounds like it is probably not the mag. Something supplying power to the mag arcing to ground I would expect.

Micowave continues running after time is up


This can be two things that I know of 1 is a timer defect and the other is someone has placed some type of metal ie utensil, foil, can whatever into the microwave - either way you should replace the microwave and its a fire hazard to your home and others around you and the cost of a new unit is not worth the losses a fire can bring.

Sounds like the inverter (power supply for cooking) or the magnatron which does the work----neither are cheap parts.

My high power GE Advantium microwave is sparking


Your problem is a common one. When you see arcing inside your microwave, it's because of food or liquid left in the cavity or on the wave-guide cover:

  • If the wave guide has any burn spots, replace it and clean the unit well.

  • If the cavity has any burn spots, spot-sand it smooth and touch it up with microwave interior paint.
Note… If there are any burn holes in the cavity, don't use the unit-seek help from a qualified appliance repair technician.

Stovetop lamp sockets very brittle and are disintegrating.


In effect (given the unit is wired correctly) without insulation on the socket, you have an exposed neutral wire in your oven -- this is certainly not as dangerous as an exposed hot wire, but does present risks. I recommend replacing the light sockets -- you'll sleep and cook a lot better.

When we first turn on the microwave there is like a mini-explosion and a fiery spark, but after that the microwave goes through its cycle and cooks the food. But we are afraid to try it again.


pls do not use any aluminum or metal material INSIDE the microwave, this can cause the problem

I assumed, but pls consider the ff info...

Be sure to use nonmetal utensils in the microwave.

For microwave cooking, cut meats and vegetables in uniform sizes to make sure that they cook evenly.

Paper plates, cups, and napkins can be used in the microwave. But don't use foil-lined paper products, paper towels that include nylon or synthetic fibers, or newspaper.
When using plastic roasting or cooking bags in the microwave, discard the wire twist tie and use a plastic fastener or a piece of string instead.

To ensure that food cooks fully and evenly in the microwave oven, stir food and turn dishes periodically while they're cooking.

Rack in microwave


You should not have any metals in the oven when the microwave is on. If you are just doing convection cooking, the metal rack should be in so that what you are cooking is raised up so the hot air can surround what you are cooking.

Vibrating noise when cooking


In order to try to set your mind at ease I will have to explain the Basics on how a Microwave Oven Functions.
When a Microwave Oven is set to COOK ...START. It cooks at 100%. There is no lowering of the heat as with a Range ( Cook Top) Control. So in order to do the other things such as DEFROST, WARM, or anything other than 100% COOK. A COOK ON- COOK OFF system was utilized. To DEFROST, the Microve COOKS at 100% for 30% of the TIME, then IDLES for 70% of the TIME. COOK ON 30% of the TIME, COOK OFF 70% of the TIME = DEFROST This is why you can hear the CYCLE. More power is required during the ON CYCLE, thus the lower vibration. The Vibration occurs when the High Voltage Transformer is turned ON ( COOK ON).
The VIBRATION seems to have got louder with age. This is somewhat normal as there is a vibration from the High Voltage Transformer present every time the Microwave is used. screws and other metal parts seem to get loose with this vibration. There is no solution, unless you can tighten EVERY screw, nut, and bolt in the unit.
Sorry!
