Question about Microwave Ovens
My insurance policy cancelled after nearly 20 years without previous notice that they were dissatisfied with claims lodged which are alledged to be excessive also told that I should have claimed from third parties who were at fault and gave cause for claims to be lodged- my policy was altered by A&G to remove my excess amount due as well as a lower premium offered about 3years ago without my request to do so - obviously an indication an indication that they were satisfied with my policy history - I have had as yet no feed back after three weeks although promised that the manager concerned would do so. My premiums are paid in advance and yet no pro rata refund will be given, I am told, for a vehicle reported sold in the first week of March.
The best thing you can do is contact your solicitor. It is unlikely you will find the help you need by posting under the microwaves section of the Fixya website.

SOURCE: I have a Panasonic combination
This is a really common problem with all models which use the same door assembly.My first one failed after three months and was repaired by Panasonic under warranty. It failed again just after the warranty expired and the company were not interested in helping so I took the door apart to see what's wrong. (Remove outer oven casing, undo hinge plates from oven body and withdraw door. Unclip inner brown/black plastic seal, and then unscrew and remove metal shielding and door glass).
Basically, there's a design fault. A really weedy and poorly designed plastic post is the anchor point for a strong door spring catch, and the post is part of the inner door casing moulding. The plastic itself is not amenable to being glued and where the post breaks there is too little area for glue to have much effect even if it could work. The plastic is an ABS type of material and this is well known for being difficult to use glue with.
At first, I shelled out for a new outer door casing from a parts supplier, when it arrived I was really disappointed to see that the design was unmodified. As expected the door failed a few months later despite being careful to always gently close the door.
I went back to my old door and after a few experiments I temporarily glued the post with superglue just to hold it in place, and then I packed carefully around it with two part car body filler, ensuring that it would not foul other components when the door was reassembled. In the end, I still had to carve away some filler afterwards to enable reassembly.
A year later and it's still working, but the stress point has now been transferred to the outer door casing where the top of the post engages into a moulded anchorage. This is now cracking showing that this is also under-engineered and that the door spring is far too strong. The inner microwave seals are fine though, but it clearly indicates a really poor design.
Since then, my parents Panasonic has had the same fault (a different model but using the same door) as have a couple of friends and neighbours. Some have had warranty repairs, a few have been binned and replaced with a different brand and I've repaired some. It's a real shame as the basic ovens are very good, just this **** door lets everything down and despite loads of internet reports of a problem the company won't admit there's an issue.
I don't advocate this at all, but one neighbour was so angry with Panasonic's attitude after his second (one month out of warranty) failure that he went and bought the exact same model new. He then dismantled and thoroughly cleaned his broken door, reassembled it and switched it onto the new oven and returned the new one to the store the same afternoon for a full refund, claiming the door broke as soon as he used it. He's used the same trick twice since and has stuck with this model as there are no others on sale in the UK with the same specifications and dimensions. I do not condone his actions as they're fraudulent, but I do understand why he's done so.

hi, where did you buy this product from, this is a help site where people who have problems with equipment they have bought want help, we dont actually sell anything we have no catalogue or shop.
the way this site works is you post your problem in the forum for the experts to see and then one of them will pick your problem and offer you some help and guidance on solving your problem.
the experts dont work for the site we just sign into the site to offer our advice and guidance, we dont actually sell anything.
so the only help this site can off you is if you tell us the company you brought this product from then we can pass on a complaint saying that you have spoken to us and you are not happy with the product and would like a replacement or refund. But without you telling us the company involved we cant do anything.
If the company passed you onto this site to make a complaint then i need to warn you that it sounds like they are trying to fob you off and pass you onto someone else who cant really do anything for you,
say your car broke down and you didnt know the cause i could then help you find the cause and tell you what you need to do to solve your problem, or if your washing machine has an error code then i can help you find and solve the problem.
But as for getting a refund this is not possible from this site as we do not sell or endorse any products we only offer help and advice to people who have a technical or fault problem with a product and as you want a refund then all you have to do is contact the company that sold you the product.
if you would like me to contact the company for you and pass a complaint on then your going to need to give me the companies name and details and also your details so as they can contact you to resolve any problem you have
im sorry i cant give you a refund but if you look at our site we dont actually sell anything we only help you solve any problems you may have with a product, now i know you have a problem with a product but we cant offer you any refund as we never sold you anything and we never sell anybody anything, so i that respect i cant help you
but if the company told you to contact us for a refund then this is something different and something we could take up as this is something they shouldnt do and they would be breaking the law by passing this site off as the site that sold you something.
please let me know what you would like me to do

Possible that the magnetron, the capacitor is weak or defective.
It will be good to choose a low heat program to try and see if the fuse will stay, if so the magnetron has errors.
It will be good to post a complaint to the official customer care of Siemens to find a solution.

Do you happen to know the make / model of your blender? If you do, you should be able to go to the manufacturer's website and order a replacement "o-ring".
