Question about Miele M638EC 1500 Watts Convection / Microwave Oven

Open Question

I have a Miele M 638 EC combination microwave and convection oven. Miele tech says the control panel has gone and replacement cost is close to cost of new unit. How do I locate a used panel ?

Is the control panel a modular unit that must be replaced in its entirety.

Hi - the most likely problem is the HV Diode or the Magnetron, other possible one is the capacitor & door interlock, its counting down so the interlock has to be ok.

The control fuse (8A) is likely to have blown and if its the case then the magnetron unit is highly likely to be the cause. The HV Diode can be tested with a Insulation tester conducts one way only, more accurate than a multi meter to see if this has blown as well. One other component is HV fuse has a white casing fixed between the high voltage transformer windings - u wont miss this one.

Then again perhaps a serviceman is your best option - be prepared for the cost of repairs.

SOURCE: Hi, our Miele Classic H147-2MB,

Hi - it can be repaired - there are a few things that may have gone AWOL with the machine - there is the Magnetron (specially made), the door interlock, HV transformer, HV diode.

The only way is to have it inspected and the above components tested for failure - it could any of these or a combination of two - there is a control fuse also which is likely to be blown as well. The magnetron would be the expensive component and Miele units are unque design where other brands would not be compatible.

Is my Miele M6262 Microwave oven a convection oven?? Sounds silly but was told it was when we bought it but it doesn't seem to be?!?! Thank you


From what i can tell, it utilizes microwaves and is indeed not a convection oven. Although it does have some extra features such as a 'grill' setting, i think that is just using microwaves at a lower (or higher) power.

Start button intermittent eg press many times (maybe 20) to start


Problem identified as plastic pushbutton on control panel, solution: interchanged with turntable on/off button (nevrer used). Had paid Miele €115 call out (for person who knew nothing about microwaves), Miele operate a closed shop. Local repair service say Miele will not supply parts, Miele designated repair agent will not repair microwaves, Miele will only send "engineer" to customer, no drop off facility. Was forced into buying new microwave oven from Miele as only way of recouping callout charge. Subsequently had a go myself with above positive positive result - now have a spare microwave cooker.

GE #JE1590BC01 will convection & combination, but not microwave


With the symptoms you have, I would most strongly suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad magnetron.

The diode is a fairly cheap fix, and the mag will cost more.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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.

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.

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

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html
(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)


http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html

Accessing some components for testing will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

The owner's manual will also tell you how long your magnetron warranty is - it's usually 5 to 9 years.

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