SOURCE: My Frigidaire over the stove microwave not heating food

Hi,It is most likely the magnetron and diode that has to be replaced. This job should be done by a tech, High voltage. Magnetron's normally have a five year warranty, check your owners manual.

SOURCE: My microwave oven is not heating the food

HI, you will need to replace the heating device. This device is called the Magnetron and, it will cost you about $133.00. This is a repairable issue but, you will need to call for service. I do not recommend installing this device if you are not familiar with handling this type of tech.

SOURCE: Microwave seems to be operating but does not heat food. Popping sound was heard just prior to this problem. Popping sound no longer heard but still does not heat food.

Replacing the Magnetron will fix this heating issue you are having with this microwave. The Magnetron is the device that is responsible for the heating action.

SOURCE: My samsung microwave oven is

if your microwave does everything you have described , and you can hear the cooling fan running as well after you press the start button , you probably have a faulty wave guide. The wave guide is also called a Magnetron Tube. It is the main part of the microwave which produces the microwave energy . If this part is not functioning it is best to replace the entire unit, rather than have it repaired .

My Frigidaire oven model PLMV169DCD has developed a defect


The only real issue with the control board that could cause that is a failing relay or bad connection, both of which I can repair on a control board for $54.95, which includes insured return shipping.

The first thing I would do is test the outlet. A toaster or hair dryer are good devices to use.

A microwave must be on its own breaker, or at least not on the same breaker as a high-current device (stove) or a device that causes spikes on the line (fridge, freezer).

It's possible you have a failing magnetron or high-voltage transformer, but I would need to discuss it to narrow it down.

For free additional DIY help and details, feel free to e-mail me directly from my site. Remind me of your full model number and detailed symptoms.

Where is the fuse on my microwave Electrolux PLMV169DCD located?


We have three service manuals covering the PLMV169 series, which you can download free:

http://www.microwavedisplay.com/plmv169dcc_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/glmv169_plmv169_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/glmv169_plmv169_late_prod_sm.pdf

They're all pretty similar.

You can usually find parts from the Pros here.

If not, contact Electrolux at the phone number on the front of the service manual.

It may be the C/T fuse (thermal fuse located above the magnetron) or the oven cavity thermal cutout, located on the top of the cavity.

Accessing these two parts for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Electrolux / Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions
here.

It may also be that there was a power surge which damaged the control circuit board, activating the built-in surge protection.

This is not resettable. The circuit board has to be repaired. We do that for $39.95, details here.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Food not heating in microwave


Magnetron tube probably failed. Depends on how old the microwave is. If its still under warranty, call Frigidaire. If not, take it to a repair shop, get an estimate, and compare it to a new one. It'll probably be cheaper to buy a newer one that will have more power, but check anyway.

I was boiling water on the electric range beneath my FRIGIDAIRE FMV157GC 1.5 Cu. Ft. Microwave Oven when there was a loud snapping/popping noise occured. I immediately shut off the microwave and thought...


Hi,

I would say the transformer for the power supply has probably shorted, or another major component in the power supply has shorted - This may be repairable if easily spotted, but most likely will not be cost efective.
