Chefmate control panel is not working on my microwave oven. I have two identical microwaves and the broken one is the newer one. Am I able to swap the control panel out with the other which is same

I have two identical microwaves and the broken one is the newer one. Am I able to swap the control panel out with the other which is same model number? The model # is WP700AP200-6. The MFR date is June 2006. The reason I want to keep the broken one is because I just used it for one year and the other one I used for about 4 years and is in worse shape than the one that just broke. If I can replace control panel. . .how do I do it I did not see any screws to loosen in order to get the panel off with.

SOURCE: chefmate microwave will not heat up anything

A microwave not heating up is caused by one or more of the following -

1) Failed controller board (unlikely if you are getting a clock readout and you can get the various functions to work, just no heat)
2) Failed door switch
3) Failed thermal fuse, when used
4) Blown power fuse that is dedicated to the microwave circuit
5) Bad diode
6) Bad capacitor
7) Bad magnetron
8) Bad transformer

Door switches insure the microwave circuit will not engage when the door is open. Slamming the door of the microwave is hard on the switch.

The thermal due is wired into the microwave harness, and is a melting allow type, based on heat buildup within the oven. Always replace with a fuse of the same thermal rating.

The power fuse is a special type and should only be replaced with that same type and rating. It is easily tested.

The diode is a relatively inexpensive part, and is not easily tested. If a grumble is heard coming from electrical area of the unit, then the diode could be shorted.

A shorted capacitor will blow the fuse immediately. And open capacitor will cause a "no heat" condition.

A bad magnetron will also cause a low level hum or grumble from the transformer. But is may also cause no other identifiable symptom of failure.

A bad transformer will exhibit a grumble or hum, and may or may not blow the fuse. But be careful here, the secondary of the transformer produces very high voltages, up to 2.5Kv. Few people own a meter capable of measuring such voltages.

Service and repair of microwave ovens is dangerous work. If you don't know what your doing, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE A UNIT WITHOUT INSTRUCTION.

Chefmate microwave oven manual


Remove the cover by removing the screws on the back of the microwave and slide the cover to the rear. The black and white wires will unplug and the green wire goes under a screw. Use a pair of pliers to compress the strain relief to remove the cord from the microwave case.

I have chefmate microwave and suddenly stopped working. it is showing 2:50 code on the screen only...it was working fine and dont know what happened to it and touch pad is not working..how do i make it...


HELLO.

The code on the screen indicate electric panel fault resulting from the touchpad malfunction.

The touch pad on your microwave oven acts as the brain of the appliance. It not only contains the buttons that you use to enter cooking settings and times, but also controls the function of the entire microwave. If the touch pad malfunctions or breaks completely, the microwave will cease to function. In this instance, the broken touch pad must be removed and a new touch pad must be installed, to restore functionality to the microwave.

1 Unplug the microwave from the wall outlet.
2 Remove the two screws, located on the front or top of the grill at the top of the microwave.
3 Pull the grill off of the microwave.
4 Remove the mounting screw from the top of the control panel.
5 Lift the control panel up and out to loosen. Look behind the control panel to ensure there are no metal tabs securing the control panel in place. If there are metal tabs, gently rotate the control panel to free the tabs.
6 Transfer the wires from the old control panel to the new control panel one at a time to ensure that the wires are properly installed.
7 Install the new control panel into the microwave and secure using the mounting screw that was removed.
8 Replace the grill from the top of the microwave and secure it using the screws that were removed.
9 Plug the microwave back into the wall outlet.
Thanks.

HI, unfortunately, the actual part you need(Control board), has been discontinued. it is best to just purchase a newer unit in this case. This unit is not repairable at this time due to the unavailability of the components.
