SOURCE: overcooked potato overcooked the microwave

The magnetron probably overheated, blowing the thermal cutout / thermal fuse / thermostat mounted on it.

SOURCE: Hole in plastic on inside of door

check the conductivity of the plastic with an ohmmeter by placing the probes an inch apart on the plastic surface. If the resistance is large or infinity, the plastic probably performs no role in stopping the microwave radiation. If so, any epoxy probably can be used to close the hole safely. Make sure you don't use too much and if possible place tape over the repair and orient the microwave so the epoxy presses against the tape while drying to prevent it from oozing into any door hinge/close mechanism. Otherwise, a piece of microwave door glass from a broken unit can ge glued over the hole and should stop the radiation. You can check for leakage with test units but be very carefuly anyway.

SOURCE: Kenmore 721.80524500 makes a buzzing, grinding noise

Your problem is due to the "magnetron" arcing to the wave guide within the microwave. Picture someone arc-welding stuff together inside the microwave casing, that's essentially what's happening. It is a fire hazard and you should stop using the microwave immediately. As far as I know, there isn't a recall on that particular model (though there was on another similar Kenmore/Whirlpool model) so if it's out of warranty, you're out of luck.

SOURCE: Samsung microwave oven turntable doesn't turn

Yes it just will not cook or defrost very evenly. It is not dangerous however.

Probably the motor or gears that make the turntable go are worn or burnt out.

What does convection cooking mean?


A convection oven cooks food with heat; much like a conventional oven. It is faster, though, as it circulates the air around inside the cavity.

So, it's faster than a conventional oven, but slower than a microwave oven.

Conventional ovens which also microwaved at the same time, have also been manufactured.
They were also faster than a conventional oven, but slower than a microwave. But they were not the same as a convection oven as they did not circulate the air.

How to set temperature in Samsung microwave. 160 c means ? watts.


They're totally non-interchangeable as they're two totally different ways of cooking.

There is no correlation at all between a temperature setting used by electric and fan ovens and the microwave power level, there's not even a rule of thumb. For microwave cooking, the fat, sugar and water content of any given food item as well as the mass and shape are what determine cooking times and microwave power levels, and not all foods can be safely microwaved as high fat/sugar content foods may catch fire.

Oven keeps turning off frequently. Will reset by turning off Breakers and resetting.GE Microwave JVM2070.


My answer is get rid of it. Microwave ovens are hazardous to your health! Any food microwaved is not food anymore except for cancer cells and giving you diabetes. This is one of the main reasons these problems are on the rise in the US. US has never tested MW ovens except for 'leakage'. Not worth fixing or having one. Save yourself! Do some research. Microwaves riddle the cells rupturing them rendering them unfit.

Microwave seems to operate normally but does not heat food


Test it. Put a bowl of water in the microwave and place a small (1 or 2 sq inches) piece of aluminum fold next to it. Power the microwave on for 2 or 3 seconds. If the foil sparks, the oven is creating microwaves and should be functioning correctly. If nothing happens to the foil, then you have no microwaves being generated by the klystron tube.

You can spend 80 to 150 dollars to have the oven checked and repaired or you can find another on Craig's List in your community for less than 100 dollars. Alternately, you can replace with a new one for whatever you are able to spend (from 95 to 600 dollars).

When we first turn on the microwave there is like a mini-explosion and a fiery spark, but after that the microwave goes through its cycle and cooks the food. But we are afraid to try it again.


pls do not use any aluminum or metal material INSIDE the microwave, this can cause the problem

I assumed, but pls consider the ff info...

Be sure to use nonmetal utensils in the microwave.

For microwave cooking, cut meats and vegetables in uniform sizes to make sure that they cook evenly.

Paper plates, cups, and napkins can be used in the microwave. But don't use foil-lined paper products, paper towels that include nylon or synthetic fibers, or newspaper.
When using plastic roasting or cooking bags in the microwave, discard the wire twist tie and use a plastic fastener or a piece of string instead.

To ensure that food cooks fully and evenly in the microwave oven, stir food and turn dishes periodically while they're cooking.
