Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a de dietrich pyrolytic oven. I have noticed the main oven light is permanently on when all switches are off. Also, when selecting the required settings, the temperature "in demand" neon does n

The top oven / grill works fine. There are 2 switches for the main oven. 1 is the thermostat, whilst the other selects which elements are used in conjunction with the fans. This selector switch also selects the "Pyrolytic" settings for self cleaning. I suspect the PCB as I cannot see anything obvious, but also cannot see any burning on the pcb.

Check your wiring, but I think it may be a circuitry issue.

SOURCE: neff microwave combination oven

no solution sorry but we also have a Neff mw/combi oven which keeps blowing for no apparent reason, the Neff repair man has looked at it 4 times and practically replaced every component -power module, operating module,relay board, door switches but it`s just gone again! The model is a H5972N0GB/01 and it is approx 3 yrs old, no problem for the first 2 years .Time to write to Neff -is yours the same model?

SOURCE: I have sharp microwave oven

First I would suggest a "hard reset". Simply unplug the oven for a minute or two, then try again.

If it still fails, it may be that the keypad has failed, or there is a bad connection due to moisture, grease, etc.

This is an Australian model, so it's hard for me to give more specific information.

But one some US models the LCD and keypad connect to the circuit board via a rubber "zebra strip" and losing that connection can result in a loss of display segments and / or key response.

I've attached a diagram showing where one can clean to restore operation in this case.

SOURCE: there was a bright light

Carbonised food build up or a metalic object was in the cavity as it was being used, causing internal arcing inside the food cavity. You may find the cover over the magnetron aerial is blackened. If it is change it.
Clean the oven cavity and check for damage.
Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Hi my Panasonic Dimension 4

Re: Thermister at rear of unit is open at room temp. Isn't it supposed to be closed at room temperature? The thermistor is surely defective. Also the door switch testing procedure is not clear. If it is three terminal you mas check that the switch is closing between COM and N.O. terminals when you close the door ( I am generally talking about a three terminals microwave switch, I do not have your oven's model number).

Also test the inverter separately. Read DC in, then make sure that your multimeter can test AC out and read AC out to know if inverter is working. To test the inverter thoroughly you should also use an oscilloscope to check AC phase. Inverter going out of phase is unlikely the problem.

After testing the inverter check oven again (diode and capacitor, door again, wiring , control). Remember to discharge the oven capacitor or you risk to get shocked by an heavy discharge.

Our De Dietrich DME715X microwave oven is sparking from the ceiling - have tried a new wave guide cover but that did not work.

Some ovens have a tuning stub in the wave guide. If it has become loose or rusted, it could cause the problem. If that's the cause, you would have to transfer all of the oven's components to a new cavity. This is usually not done due to the cost, although I did do this once on an oven that was still under warranty.

Make sure the wave guide is clean inside.

Also check for rust near the wave guide cover. Re painting damaged areas might help.

Sparks fly, too, if the ovens contents do not contain enough water to absorb enough of the microwave energy. Leftover energy converts itself into electrical current in any conductive material (such as cavity panels).

My De Dietrich DME 101XE1/3 microwave oven does not work.

I'd check the door switches first. The primary and secondary ones must go into the closed position when the door is shut.

You might also have an open thermal cut out on the outside of the cavity. There is also one on the magnetron you could check, although it's les likely to cause this problem.

Avoid all high voltage components, as there's likely to be a 4000 volt charge on the high voltage capacitor. Unpleasant to touch, and it could be fatal.

De Dietrich DME 112 XU2 Turntable not working

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

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