SOURCE: I have a Hamilton Beach

maby it's the magnetron, i need more information, a good way to test the magnetron is to put a small HE-NE lamp in a glass filled with water (HE-NE lamps) are found in any radioshack (La source) store, if the lamp glowes orange it meens the magnetron is good, if it is not glowing then the magnetron is dead, (the magnetron is allmost the price of the oven) it could be a fuse but if you have to change the fuse replace it with the same type (normaly ceramic german type) NOT GLASS

Good luck!

Assuming its the same as my Hamilton Beach, you first enter the cooking time, but don't press start yet, instead press power, then a number button 1 - 9 for the power level 1 for 10%, 2 for 20% etc. THEN press start as normal

It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Return the item to the place of purchase this is a manufacture defect. The problem is caused by a defective turntable motor.

Hit power level button then number 1 through 10. Most have 10 power levels. 1 is extremely low. 3 is usually defrost, 5 would be half power and so on.

Typically, you have the first 30 days to exchange a new purchase. I would pursue that avenue. If you bought it online, it's probably freight related. Try to file a claim..
