The Litz Coil or Magnetron Tube has failed. You can look for blown fuses when you remove it but there is usually another reason it blew and will most likely continue to do so if replaced. They are not worth repairing so it may be time to get a new one.

Have Kenmore microvave and the vent starts on its own


Actually, that's a feature! If you cook much on the range (stove) beneath the microwave, the heat will cause the microwave bottom to heat up quite a bit (just touch it!), and the microwave will turn on it's exhaust fan in an attempt to save itself from burning up. It will shut off in about 15 minutes after you turn off the source of heat.
But if the fan comes on by itself even when the microwave is cool (or at least not hot), then you probably have a defective fan thermostat. This thermostat is located behind the control console on the inside bottom of the microwave.

May Spacemaker XL1800 stop heating food. Was working fine. Then just stop


Is this an over the stove type unit? I have had a few problems with my over the range spacesaver. I think the heat from cooking gets up into the microwave and damages it. The steam from me boiling things on the stove had mine quit heating and I purchased a new one. The parts to replace the faulty ones can be quite expensive over $150.00, so its better to purchase a new microwave.

The microvave does not heat anything up. The light works, turntable works, the 'oven' goes 'on', but neither the food nor the liquid heats up. It was working one day and then not, the next!


At minimum, it'll be a High Voltage fuse blown. There could have been a power surge, or it could be an indicator of something more wrong with the microwave. Not that expensive to fix.

At maximum, it'll be the magnetron (the component that creates the microwaves). This could be an expensive job.

Refer to your manual or to the manufacturers website for information about repair locations.

My ifb microwave oven is getting hot outside while


Normally when u cook food in microwave the fod is cooked by microwaves, which means the heat is generated with in food. The temperature inside is never too hot and all the heat produced is absorbed with in the food.

On the other hand when the grill is switched on, a separate heatting element gets switched on. You can see this red hot element on the top side of inside of microwave. the heat from this element gets transferred to food through air circulation. But partof heat also gets transferred to the walls of microwave oven. This is the reason the wall feel hot during use of grill.

As i see ther is no problem with the microwave itself. Jut kep delicate thngs a bit away from the microwave.

My Breville BRE799GMSSE microwave will not heat anything


If you want to fix it yourself you'll need some understanding about what you're going to do.
If absolutely everything is working and food stays cold, there's only one problem MAGNETHRON. You'll need to dissassemble the microvave itself, remove the magnethron an to replace it with the same type.
Be advised Tthat this might be expensive. In some cases magnethron costs more than new microwave oven (in Europe).

Microwave heating problems


Many over-the-range microwave ovens suffer from intermittent problems caused by excessive moisture from the range/stove entering the microwave cabinet and collecting on the circuitry. Often the problem is with one or two simple connections that may need tightening or soldering. But, to repair these components, the microwave cabinet needs to be opened. So we recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.
