SOURCE: sharp R-1871 microwave/convection oven. Microwave will not work

This may be due to the microwave section not working. Check the high voltage diode if it is ok, replace the Magneton.

SOURCE: My Russell Hobbs microwave will not generate heat

If everything else is normal, the trouble may be a failed magnetron tube (the microwave source), problems on the control circuit board, or parts in the tube power circuit that are bad. It's also possible a door switch can be at fault, but this usually keeps something else (fan, turntable or light, most often) from running as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. There are potentially deadly voltages present, and a chance of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done correctly. Take the oven to a shop for an estimate, or just consider replacing it if it isn't a built-in, an over the range unit or a high-end countertop model.

My Russell Hobbs microwave seems to be stuck on some kind of timer and I've tried everything to cancel it but it's not having any of it. When it's not actually cooking it seems to be in some get ready mode...


Put a glass of cold water in it as see if it heats up? All microwaves have a timer so that after cooking the internal fan stays on to remove cooking smells and condensation from the chamber. It should however turn off after about 5 minutes as long as the door is closed. The plate should only rotate when a time is set and the cook button is pressed.

Russell Hobbs Microwave ,it heats the food but it does not turn round.


If the oven is STILL heating, but the carousel isn't turning, the symptoms you describe are commonly attributed to a turntable motor that has worn out and may need to be replaced. The motor is attached to the center plastic piece (called a turntable shaft, turntable ring or coupler) under the middle of the glass tray. The following link explains how to access and replace the motor:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3555716-replacing_a_turntable_motor_on_a_microwa

This is a very simple repair, that usually is not expensive. The price will be determined by the model and manufacturer. This repair can also be performed on an over the range model microwave oven WITHOUT uninstalling it.

You can refer to any of the following websites for comparison:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites listed have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and properly identifying the part(s) you may need.

The average price for a motor is usually about $25 to $45 (U.S. Dollars). If your model number is not listed at all the sites, you may also try these sites that carry the Russell Hobbs brand parts:
http://www.russell-hobbs.com/parts.shtml http://www.directpartsandproducts.com/index.php NOTE: Even though the carousel may not be turning, you can still use the microwave while awaiting parts. You will need to physically rotate whatever you are heating about midway through the cook time to ensure even heating. Early model microwave ovens were not equipped with a rotating carousel and this was the common procedure.
