Intermittent starting. imer will count down and you can hear a clicking. sometimes if you bang the side or slam the door it may operate again. may be a bad switch 11 years old thanks


Nick,
Usual life span of a microwave is 7 to 10 years. Unless you are going to try to attempt a repair yourself, I would recommend getting a new microwave. You will at least then be covered by a new warranty as well.

How to fix microwave with bang, flash


That was the magnetron tube breaking. Too expensive to fix. Better to go and buy a new microwave.

My microwave oven just stopped cooking. The light comes on and the Motor is running, but much louder than normal.


The magnetron in your microwave has probably gone out. The magnetron is the part of the microwave oven that produces microwaves. If you unit is a built in model, it will likely cost more to fix than a new one. Same thing goes for a countertop unit.

Sharp Carousel II Model R-8560, convection heat elements dont work but microwave works perfectly


Twenty years old and you want to "save" it? Ya gotta be kidding. I had a Sears mw that got to be 24 years old before failing so I'm hardly one to give advice.

I WAS IN MY KITCHEN, STANDING NEAR MY MICROWAVE OVEN (i was not using it) I HEARD A LOUD BANG THAT FUSED THE TV, MICROWAVE AND SOME LIGHTS. I CHANGED THE FUSE IN MICROWAVE, P


If you put foil or silver of any kind in a microwave it causes an energy arc that may have hit a contact at a certain point inside the microwave causing damage that even if you weren't using the microwave as long as it was still plugged in still had a small amount of current going through it and had finally burst. which is why they manual advices consumers not to use reflective surfaces in microwaves. :)

Stopped heating


The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be bad or the circuitry to the magnetron may have burned out. Basically my advice is that if you have no electrical expertise, it isn't worth fixing. The magnetron if bad, costs almost as much as a new microwave. If you open it up (make sure it has been unplugged for a few hours and don't seen any obvious burnt parts, then most likely the magnetron is done and a new microwave is the way to go.

Let me know how this works out for you.

14 years old. Hit the start button this AM and it


Yep, get a new one. Your oven's magnetron tube, the microwave source, has gone bad. They often go with a bang. While the tube could be replaced, the repair will likely cost more than a new oven. At 14, it's done you well but it's time to move on.

Touch sreen won't work


I would suspect it either needs a hard reset (unplugging it for a few minutes, then trying again) or the membrane keypad is failing.

Instead of JMV1540BMC01, it would probably be one of these models:

JVM1540DM1BB
JVM1540DM1CC
JVM1540DM1WW
JVM1540DM2BB
JVM1540DM2CC
JVM1540DM2WW
JVM1540DN1BB
JVM1540DN1CC
JVM1540DN1WW
JVM1540DN2BB
JVM1540DN2CC
JVM1540DN2WW
JVM1540LM1CS
JVM1540LM2CS
JVM1540LN1CS
JVM1540LN2CS
JVM1540SM1SS
JVM1540SM2SS
JVM1540SN1SS
JVM1540SN2SS

2 1/4 year old GE Spacemaker XL 1850 Microwave doesn't heat


Check this website:

http://www.partselect.com/microwave+no-heat+repair.htm

It sounds like it is either the power diode, the high voltage capacitor or the magnetron. If it is the magnetron, it may not be worth fixing as these can cost well over $100.

Do you hear a buzzing sound?
