WHY MICROWAVE OVEN IS DEAD ,2000 MODEL bajaj


there could be many reasons for your microwave to be dead. First did you check if it has power coming to it? Is the plug out of the socket? Sometimes the power plug is behind the microwave and it is hard to see unless you slide it out and look. When you say dead, is the display light up? If so does it indicate PF (Power Failure)

Sometimes the internal fuse blows out because of a short, usually caused by the diodes being shorted or even the transformer or the magnatron tube itself. If you have any of these problems except for the fuse then I would recommend that you replace the microwave with a new one because yours probably wouldn't pay to fix.

Good luck,

Marty

One day the microwave just showed PF on the screen, unplugged and plugged in tried to use it, worked for 30 seconds, stopped and showed PF again. Any ideas? It is only a few years old and used in our...


PF is Power Failure. Check and see if the Oven has a reset switch or power button. Try and hook up an extension cord, plug one end into a usable output (wall plate) and the other into the 110VA line plug attached to the Oven. Turn on....if it works then the problem is a circuit breaker or wall interface. If it fails with the extension, then it is an electrical problem with the microwave device itself. If there are no Reset features on the oven, an internal fuse may blow, or other shorts are occurring. The cost to fix is more than a new unit. Lowes has them as low as $150.00.

Power failure on ge wes1130


Power being interuppted could be anything from a bad fuse , bad fuse holder, bad solder connections on the main board. Bad breaker in your panel. Start by plugging it into an outlet you know is on a different breaker than the on it is on now. See if it does the same thing. If it works ok, then problem with power to the other outlet. If it does the same thing problem inside of unit. PF is Power Failure, now we have to figure out why.

My GE Spacemaker 2.0 over the counter microwave just died. No lights or anything.


Hi, It sounds like the internal fuse blew. To get to it, the case has to come off the unit and its located close to where the power cord ties in. With any and all microwaves, It is a good idea to put a surge protector on the plug to plug microwave into. Hope this helps.
