Hello, is this a two electrical filament hot plate? Also, is this range stove/oven? I'm a little confused here on what exactly what you are referring to hot plate or cook stove with electrical burners and oven. If it a really old hot plate with one burner look at the plug there could be a fuse in it. If it is electrical range then check the control board and see they a fuse on. If not, check the voltage with a volt meter. Be very careful here there two phase that is 240 Volts AC. The voltage will be split between the two l20 hot legs AC which is 120 degrees out of phase in respect to each other; in other words, don't both of them don't let them touch each other.


If it a kitchen stove I'm fairly sure that the control board is shot and with this not operating it will not open the current/voltage relays for the electrical burners. REMEMBER YOU ARE DEALING WITH 240 VOLT AC...BE CAREFUL.... GB....stewbison

When it times down but doesnt heat it is typically a problem with the door switches, especially one you just bought, may have been from shipping . A switch or connection may have been disodged when being shipped to you. Most machines have something like 4-5 wswitches, If 1 doesnt report right it will stiop the unit from running. But since some of them are closed it will accept the programing and try to operate. So a lot of times you get fan running and tray turning but no power to the secondary circuits. You will need to find out who does warranty for them or return it where you bought it as a defective unit.

Hi,
This is a problem with the 'Motor Run Capacitor'

What you suggest is exactly what happens when this part fails.

Unplug - and look carefully around the connections to the compressor - there should be a cylinder with 2 connections on it. Read what value it says (like 250V 50pf) - and order a replacement from a parts store.

Fit it any way round - it doesnt matter.

plug back in and should work 100%

Cost about - $5

Microoven stops after 3 to 4 minutes and then it can be started only after 15 to 20 minutes cooling again it trips after 3 minutes


the thermocouple located on the magnetron is either weak and sensitive to heat and goes out too soon,otherwise it can be the magnetron tube itself starting to draw too much current and overheating which would lead to this component shutting off power to the magnetron tube,if it doesnt seem too hot when it shuts off,then its this thermocouple on the magnetron tube

It turns but it doesnt get yhe food hot


Hello estela281 :

Your microwave problem could be happen because of a bad door switch or loose door switch mount . There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly .

That could happen because of slamming the door and not closing it gently .

WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

Put a hot pocket in for 3 min and it doesnt even


the unit inside the microwave that heats called the "magnetron" has gone bad or the circuits that power the magnetron have failed. if its under warranty still, send it back to the manufacturer. if not you can call some repair shops and see how much it would be to service it, but its most likely going to be cheaper to purchace a new microwave since they are relatively cheap these days

We have an emerson microwave oven mw8119sb mnfd sept 08. It stopped working - couldn't get anything to show there was any power. Opened it up & found a burned wire (brown) coming from little power...


I had this exact issue. I purchased this used from someone and thought I got jipped. I opened it up because I have a bit of electronics experience and saw the brown wire. The schematic says that its a thermal cutout. Basically a fuse. I just soldered them together. Might be bad in the long run (fire hazard) but it works and doesnt get hot. The reason the paper clip trick didnt work for you was because thats way too much current through a small piece of metal. Try something with more volume
