Setting level power of microwafe samsung


You can either choose to select the SET levels for the heat which can be a direct button or you can select the power button and scroll up or down the settings. Also the weight of the food must be chosen to be effective for the heat.

Not heating


Hello


Power Supply

Check whether there is a proper power supply. Look to see whether the cord is connected to a grounded 3-prong outlet and the cord is fully plugged in. If the electrical system is built-in and no power cord is visible, replace or reset the household fuse or circuit breaker.

Microwave Functions

Some basic microwave operational steps may affect whether the microwave is heating. Open and close the microwave door, as the unit will not function with the door open, and push "Stop/Clear" to cancel any previous settings, such as the timer, which do not heat the microwave oven.

Setting the Microwave

Once the power to the microwave has been reset, or verified as working, and the microwave is ready to run, select a new cook cycle and press "Start" to see if the microwave begins to run and cook food as expected. Allow the food to cook for the alloted time and then open the microwave door and check to see if the food has cooked or heated. Choose a longer cooking time and restart the microwave if food is heating but is cooking slowly.

Repair

If all efforts to troubleshoot the function and power to the microwave still do not get the appliance heating food as expected, there may be a repair issue that needs to be addressed. Contact professional technician for advice.

What are the MINIMUM AND MAXIMUM TEPARATURE in the Oven?


a microwave is measured in watts,, not by temperature,, it works by passing microwave radiation through the food or drink, it is called dielectric heating,, so in other words it depends on the power setting and the time it is set for that determines how much the microwave radiation will pass through

The microwave turntable and timer seem to be functioning normally, but the food fails to heat.


this is likely to be the magnatron,,(spelling may be wrong) thats the part that heats the food up,,they can just go "pop!" and stop working,,,
there very pricy parts to buy and fit so to be honest you would be better off getting a new unit,

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

We have just purchased a GE microwave oven, model JES1358WL. the light is on, the turntable turning, the control panel shows cooking and seconds counting down when attempting to heat cup of water. it is...


First: never attempt heating pure water in a microwave, that is dangerous.

Ensure the oven is not set to the minimum power, otherwise the heating will be minimal.

Try heating some food at maximum power for two or three minutes, if it does not heat, take it back to the shop.
