Microwave not working correctly

When trying to microwave something it doesn't seem to be making the same noise as it did. The plate and item will spin, then it stops making the noise but the plate continues, then it kicks in again. It just doesn't sound right.

SOURCE: humming sound

In my professional opinion, it sounds like you have a shorted relay or other defective component on your control circuit board, which is actually made by Samsung. We regularly repair these control panel assemblies nationwide for $32.50, so the problem can certainly be fixed economically. Looking at typical microwave wiring shows it has to be the cooking relay or a device that drives that relay. Since it stops when you open the door, we can say the door switches are certainly doing their job.

SOURCE: Microwave won't work

F6 usually means a fault in the controller or keypad. You could try to unplug it for several minutes, then plug it back in. If it still fails, maybe you or a friend can disconnect the power cord, unplug the keypad strip internally, then plug the power cord back in and try it with the keypad still disconnected. If it does not fail again, you have a wet or shorted keypad and can dry it or order one. If it does fail again, the control board is bad. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number (without the suffix) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Sorry I didn't get to answer this before the bogus answer was posted. I've been tied up and away from the PC.

SOURCE: Microwave won't heat/Makes buzzing noise.

The symptoms you are describing are typical of a magnetron that has gone bad. Continuing to attempt to use the oven in its current condition can cause further damage. So, I would recommend not using it. Microwave ovens are considered dangerous and repairs should not be attempted by anyone that is not electronic saavy. The High Voltage Network inside the oven has voltage potentials of 14,000 volts and higher. If you feel this is something you wish to attempt, the Magnetron part number is 1156751 and costs approx. $158. Keep in mind, if the magnetron has been arcing and making a burning smell you may have burned the protective coating that lines the walls of the waveguide. If the waveguide is damaged it is not repairable. I do not know if this is a replaceable item on your model microwave. Double check your warranty information and/or owner's manual. In many cases the magnetron is warranted for several years beyond the limited warranty that comes with most appliances. Post back with comments and let me know if you want me to assist you further. In addition, if you provide me with your EXACT model number (located along the door opening) I can narrow down parts a little better. I know this all sounds discouraging, but I do hope I have been able to help you.

SOURCE: Where is the 10 amp fuse on my delonghi micro/combo/grill please

Hi, I take it that this is a combi microwave? Some of these have settings on the front to microwave/grill/etc... so make sure its on the right one first!!
If you have selected the correct one then the m/wave does not work it could be several things!
Microwaves run to earth and need diodes to do this if these break down it will not m/wave! It could also be a internal fuse? ( but very unlikley if everything else works) Then you have the Mag or transformer which could be down to! M/waves run on a high power side and a low power side. The low power will not hurt you to much but the high power side will. My advice to uou is not to touch as it could be fatal as these things carry a high charge even when they are unplugged!

SOURCE: panasonic microwave nn-s963bf making grinding noise

The turntable system consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

You can see and hear a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You can
order parts for this brand from Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

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

  1. Power Issues

    • If your microwave oven won't come on, ensure that the power cord is plugged into an outlet and that the power is on. Replace any blown fuses, and reset a tripped circuit breaker. If the microwave won't run, see that the door is completely closed and that nothing is stuck in it. Ensure that your door is not broken. Replace if necessary. See that you have not started the timer as opposed to the cooking function. Press "Start/Enter" to start your microwave.

    Clock

    • Your display will flash if your power goes out. You must reset the clock. If you do not hear a tone at the end of cooking, ensure that you have enabled the audible tone. Also check that you are using the right command. If your power goes out while your food is cooking, you must reset both the cooking time and clock.

    Cooking

    • If you see sparks while you are cooking, remove any metal objects or plates with silver or gold trim. If your food is taking too long to cook, ensure that you have selected the correct power level for the food item. Remove any other appliance from the 20-amp circuit line. Additional appliances on the same amp will draw too much power away from the microwave. Also ensure that you have selected the correct food item in the preprogrammed menu. Each microwave has its own error codes. Always read your manual to determine what the error code means. Examples of error codes include "E-11", "E-12" and "E-13." This means that you have a defective sensor, and you must get your microwave serviced. The "SE" error code indicates an issue with your control panel.

    Additional Problems

    • You may hear gear noises, especially a humming noise; the fan will automatically come on while your food is cooking. If your turntable plate makes noise, first clean it, and then see that it is positioned correctly over the roller ring. If your nearby appliances are experiencing electrical interference, move your microwave farther away to correct this problem.

My microwave makes a rattle noise when turned on


check to make sure the plate is inline with the roller setting so it rolls around inside correctly when in use, other wise that will rattle.

My plate just cracked while microwaving popcorn


Make sure you don't put any dishes in the microwave with something like popcorn because they retain more heat and have nothing to transfer the heat too. If you mean the built in spinning plate that you set stuff on and you have an older model the fan might be broken. Something similar happened to my microwave as it is pretty old i just removed the panels and cleaned everything/blew it off with an air hose and it started working again. I'd check with the manufacturers also!

Sharp 1200w microwave seems to be tripping lightly (can hear clicking noises)and cause heating to be irregular


Clean the food off the inside top of the microwave Now,Or that noise you are hear will stop along with the microwave. The food gets on the Formica Squire which is how the micro waves heat your food. 1st unplug the Microwave then spray the inside of the unit with something like Fantastic or something strong and use glove so you don't burn you hand,Also if you have a scrub brush use it,And clean all the soap out and raise very well.

Microwave turns on goes threw the motions but wont heat up..


If it is running, including plate rotating, and there is no heat, then you need to replace either a part called magnetron, or one called high voltage capacitor (HV cap.).

The magnetron is located behind a protective plate on the internal side of the owen. The high voltage capacito is in microwave circuits behind the main wall.

Both parts are not expensive.

Here you see a general diagram, and you can also buy the parts. Browse with the mouse on top of the picture to see the magnetron.

Here you can also get parts and diagrams.

If you want to call atechnician you can use the number listed on the owner manual.

How do I fix a Jenn-Air JMC7000 that does not heat up items?


The noise is coming from the high-voltage transformer being overloaded by something shorting it out. Either the magnatron or the high-voltage capacitor and diode. Replace the capacitor and diode then if still not working, replace the magnatron. Its only affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"
Hope ya fix it!
