If it is charred you will have to determine if the damage extends beyond the plate. If the part is available it can be replaced.

Hi I have a siemens inno-wave HF17055GB Microwave and the plate turner is not turning, otherwise it seems to be working? help please


Replace the motor. The teeth in its gearbox have probably been damaged when trying to turn the plate by hand.

My GE microwave is starting to arc, You can see the arcs on the plate (I believe it is the wave guide cover) on the right side interior. Burn marks are evident on teh plate. Is it the waveguide cover or...


Some units use a plastic or fiberglass cover over the wave guide where the microwaves are dumped into the oven cavity. If this cover gets coated with food/grease, or soaks up grease, it can arc, or catch fire. If unit is still operating properly otherwise, I would suggest replacing the cover. You need to inspect the wave guide, also, to make sure it is still intact, and there are no cracks in it that would allow microwave radiation to escape.

Your microwave is not intended for use as a plate warmer. The plates may not even be microwave compatible. You may have caused the internal fuse to open or smoked the magnetron. The control board may have been affected as well.

While i was trying to prepare some coffe in the microwave after 2 minutes i opened the micro and the coffe was all over and now it's not functioning well? Can it be repared ?


Yeah a kind of. If the wave cover plate is only went bad(A rectangular plate inside the food chamber).
If you have little idea how to use voltmeter then only you can try to fix it.Otherwise,without any experience it is very risky.
First check the magnetron which produce microvave.(check two terminal resistance in isolated sysem).MAKE SURE YOU DISCHARGE CAPACITOR FIRST .MICRVAVE CONTAINS 5000V IN IT.

If magnetron is good then just clean the wave guide and replace the rectangular plate(wave cover).

it should work okay then

Thanks

My samsung microwave oven is not heating up food. It works normally, lights on, food turning on plate, but not heating the food.


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 .

The top plate inside the microwave sparks while cooking. We checked the dish we were cooking with, the papertowel that covered the dish. What could be causing this?


The wave guide could be dirty or damaged. Dirty oven interior can also cause sparking. The wave guide is probably not dirty if it's not on the interior of the oven . Some are behind the interior wall .

Micro is turning on ok and working but not heating up,what would cause that? light is on ok and plate is turning, just not heating


How old is your m wave? Sounds like you need to replace it .You can get a new one from Wal mart for under 75.00.and that will get you the big 1 sq.ft one..I once broke the plate in my m/wave and believe it or not they wanted more for the new plate than I paid for the M/wave BEFORE you do that check your power level settings perhaps it was turned down

I have a built in Whirlpool Micro Wave oven that quit


if you open the cupboard door above the microwave you should see two or four screws/bolts holding the microwave up there. there should also be an electrical outlet up there where the microwave is plugged in. have at least two strong people. put some blankets on your stove top to protect it. unplug and remove the screws. it should be connected in back by a metal plate also. when the microwave is tilted down at a fourty five degree angle, you can give a little lift and it should pop off the plate in back. it is heavy. get a new one at sears or other appliance retail outlets. i dont recommend best buy. they really screwed me over so i dont send business their way.

Break my glass plate inside my micro wave


You might do better to replace the microwave. My plate broke and would cost $27 to replace. I bought a new microwave for $40.
