Question about Russell Hobbs 10617 Glass 2-Slice Toaster
Model no HOB CJS28. Microwave counts downs and beeps when finished, but food still cold. The grill and oven parts work.
The magnetron has failed. This is the part of the oven which produces the microwaves and they can fail without warning at any time after they leave the factory. Failures are not as common as they once were, but unless the oven still qualifies for a warranty repair it's always more cost effective to scrap the oven and buy a new or used replacement.
In your case, you may be able to recoup some money by selling your oven purely as an electric fan oven with grill. The magnetron failure does not in any way indicate that the grill or fan oven are about to fail.
If you do decide to replace the magnetron, make sure that a new microwave gasket is fitted as well; this is a small wire mesh doughnut (US= donut) which fits around the neck of the magnetron and is crushed into place when fitted. Once used they cannot safely be re-used.
