SOURCE: 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).

SOURCE: Metal plate on inside of microwave has hole & is arcing.

The Arcing is a real bad sign, and you see the "Brain" has detected a fault condition, most likely the Power Supply and or magnetron, or High Power Diode, has "Faulted" and it shuts down for Safety reasons. Due to the danger existing inside MW, I recommend that you have it serviced by a qualified person. Always get a firm "Quote" before proceeding with any work. Be careful, as often a repair may cost as much as a new one.

SOURCE: Microwave had burnt electrical smell a few minutes

The electrical burning smell will be the Hi-Voltagetransformer inside the microwave. Along with the transformer you will also needto replace the capacitor. It couldbe a leaking high voltage cable (electric arching) bad insulator, if it's moreof an electronic component burning smell, it could be an overheating component,in both cases you should have it checked by a professional technician.Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Maytag microwave overheated and shut off - Model #MMV5165BA

That is not good, the magnetron has gone, or the thermal fuse has failed, "protects the magnetron from overheating" There is a possibility the keypad control board was a affected.

SOURCE: Panasonic Microwave NNA883 cuts out after 20 seconds.

You need to replace the diode. Scratch that. The voltage let alone the radiation could kill you. Call a technician. If it is a table top unit, buy a new one. It will be cheaper,

Where is the high voltage fuse on a microwave


The thermal fuse monitors the magnetron temperature and cuts power, if it gets to hot and resets in no more than 20 to 30 minutes. Unplug microwave oven, remove top, "several screws" look over to the right, thermal fuse is mounted on top on the inner chassis, "round and thick with 2 wires clipped on"

I would like to buy a breville cappuccino maker but hear the dial at side gets stuck and breaks easily,even when cleaned well after use. Has this been rectified. Doreen


Hi, apparently Brita, that owns Breville, did not fix the problem yet.
I can see that complains keep coming.
The problem is apparently on CM8 and CM9, the more expensive Cappuccino Maker BES200XL
does not have the problem.

One suggestion, Breville are nice budget coffe maker, if you want to spend some mor money on a better product buy a Gaggia or something similar. Italian coffee makers are usually the best for espresso/capuccino. If you want a Breville buy the ESP8XL Espresso Machine.
Here is another good brand.

Sharp Microwave R-950A


Chances are your thermistor is defective.

This UK model is probably similar to the US model R-930 or R-820.

We have both service manuals at our site and while the part numbers will not necessarily be the same, they will be handy for safety, disassembly and troubleshooting. They are here and here.

When you're ready to order parts, visit Sharp UK for spares dealers and servicers.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
