Possible causes - door switch failure or not being activated, high voltage rectifier failure, magnetron failure, high voltage capacitor shorted, high voltage transformer failure, or high voltage transformer not receiving 120 v from controlling component. If unit emitted odor before failing, high voltage rectifier or transformer are most likely. These units operate on 4000 v, or more, and can have this voltage present on the capacitor (even when not plugged in or running) . If you are unfamiliar with proper test procedures, best to find someone who is. Pople can, and have been, electrocuted working on these!

My Sunbeam Microwave SGB8901 lights up and seems to be working, but it doesn't heat anything. Is this fixable?


Only 2 years old? Hopefully you still have owner's manual, troubleshooting section should help you look for the problem. Hopefully, there is a circuit breaker, or perhaps a fuse. I hope it was not used with a metal object accidentally. No help? Check with Sunbeam Customer service, be nice, they usually are helpful.

You need to get it looked at professionally. Faulty microwaves are not really the thing that you should be repairing at home. They can be lethal. Find a local repair shop and get a quote for repair.

I have a Sunbeam Microwave Oven SMW777 - 120V-60Hz. It stopped working two weeks ago - - I can set the time for the clock function but it will not cook/heat anything - won't allow me to set a time to cook...


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.
