Main oven wont heat


Thank you for your post, Allison! I understand that you are having concerns with your microwave oven heating. This could be because of several factors, such as: loss of power to the microwave, a displayed error message or a faulty magnetron. Please ensure that your household power circuit breaker is not tripped and that your appliance is not displaying an alpha-numeric error message or code on your control panel. If you notice an error message please comment and let me know so that I can help you further. Otherwise, if you do not notice any errors and have sufficient power you are more than likely experiencing a faulty magnetron. The magnetron is the sole component that allows the microwave to heat. This is not a typical do it yourself repair so I recommend contacting a professional to confirm this and complete any necessary repairs.

Thanks,
Chris

My smeg microwave wp1000asl30-5siii shows a s1 fault. is it worth repairing,


i collect used magnetrons from microwaves that others throw out so i repair my own for free. All you need is a magnetron. Maybe a capacitor too. It could have a stuck relay.

P80D20EP-Y6A not heating atall and has S1 symbol which ive never seen


reset the system: God bless you
  1. Controller is confusedA power surge or random non-reproducible action of the universe may have resulted in the controller's program ending up in an infinite loop. Pull the plug for a minute or two to reset it.

  1. Check the power diodeThis electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
  2. High voltage capacitorResponsible for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave. Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires replacement.
  3. Damaged magnetronResponsible for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
  4. Thermal CutoffsExamine the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

Microwave not working stating error 3 or error sensor or just coming on by itself. we have tried shutting down circut breaker


Hello

"ERR 3" means that the magnetron units have failed in the microwave. Food will not cook or heat up when the microwave is in use.

This code is different than "ERR 1" or "ERR 2" because with those the microwave is still operational. "ERR 3" means a complete failure.

The magnetron is the main source of power and heating in a microwave. Magnets work inside a magnetron tube to create the heat and voltage needed to cook items.

Bring the microwave back to the retailer or a repair shop for service. You may also consider purchasing a whole new microwave if the prices are cheap enough.

My TAPPAN Microwave Oven Model Type: TM5430 B only shows S1 in the display and it doesen't react if i push any othetr buttons. What can i do ???


Unplug the unit, let it sit for a minute to clear power from the control board then plug it back in. If the display still shows S1, that could indicate a bad touch switch on the front panel, a bad connection between the touch panel and the control or a failure in the control. Unless you can get parts cheap and fix it your self, it's not worth paying for the repair.

My advantium microwave / high speed cooking oven comes up with an error code F1 while in the middle of high speed cooking


Here is some wisdom for understanding F1 fault codes.

In some models, there are subcodes that make diagnosis even easier.

Here's a simple explanation of what's going on and how to troubleshoot:

The F1 code indicates that:


a. The electronic range control (ERC) is sensing heat in the oven when in a time-of-day (i.e., not cooking) mode.

b. The ERC is receiving information to run multiple heat functions simultaneously.


Although different components (depending upon the model) could generate the code, simple and straightforward testing using your ohm meter is all you gotta do to test for it.

1. Check the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor has to be within spec or it will cause the F1 code.
As an example of being out-of-spec, the ERC will generate an F1 fault code when the sensor shows 1650 ohms during a time-of-day mode.
This is equivalent to 350°F in the oven.
The resistance isn't high enough to generate an F2 code (runaway temp) or an F3 or F4 code (shorted/open sensor circuit).
The ERC monitors the sensor circuit after a heat cycle and expects the resistance to drop back to 1050-1100 ohms.
The fault code is generated when this doesn't happen. Checking the sensor circuit means also checking the harness,
harness connections and the sensor itself.

2. If the oven sensor circuit checks okay, then turn your inquisitive eyeballs to the touchpad.
If the range has a separate touchpad/keyboard, the keypad may have moisture that is shorting several circuits simultaneously.
If the F1 code is given immediately (instead of during or after a heat cycle),
remove the ribbon connector from the touchpad to the ERC after clearing the F1 code. If the F1 code does not return in five minutes,
then cast a suspicious gaze upon the touchpad/keyboard. Shorts may be caused by using an ammonia-based glass cleaner.
The touchpad surface will absorb ammonia-based cleaners that are sprayed directly on the glass surface. When heat is applied,
the surface material can break down causing shorts.
If you're gonna use ammonia-based cleaners on your control panel, then you should spray it on the rag and then wipe the touchpanel
-don't spray directly onto the surface of the touchpad.

3. On Amana ranges with a rotary temperature dial, be sure that the knob is in the OFF position when performing tests.

4. If these tests all check good, then replace the ERC.
