Question about Microwave Ovens
Themicrowave is not working at all; no power. The oven works fine. i checked the home breaker and it is fine. is there a fuse in the unit to replace? If so, how do I get to it? Daewood Ewave model# KOT-170SB. Stopped working, After a while it re-sets itself just to stop working again. No power on the control panel when it stops working. Checked breaker, turned it off for a few seconds and re-set it. Nothing happened. When it works, it cooks but appears to be somehow in low power (took forever).
It sounds like the magnetron is overheating and tripping its thermostat / thermal cutoff. The magnetron will likely need to be replaced along with the the thermostat.
If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

But they don't list the magnetron itself at their Web site, so you may have to look at the sticker on the mag and find a generic (like 2M234M1 for example) by searching by that part number at http://tinyurl.com/gv383
