Question about Microwave Ovens
This microwave has been in storage for about 3 years. Used for about 6 months since new and worked perfectly when I repacked it in it's original packaging and box. To my knowledge it was not dropped.
All of the electronics seem to work (set clock, timers, start, etc.) and the timers count down as though the microwave was on but the oven does not come on nor does the carousel turn.
I have unplugged and replugged a couple of times. Any ideas?
Good for you for doing the cold reset. Good job!
Hopefully it was not stored in a damp or unheated area, since that can case damage that will complicate the diagnosis.
But generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
