SOURCE: plate getting too hot

I don;t think your plate is micorwave safe. Put the plate and a glass measuring cup with water in the microwave for 1 minute, if the plate is hot and the water is not the plate is not microwave safe. IF the water is hot and the plate is not. I don't know what the problem is

SOURCE: Microwave won't heat food.

My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help

SOURCE: it doesn't heat the food

OK i would advise to check the fan operations. make sure that the blower assembly(fan) is operating correctly. poor circulation can cause this as well as a faulty thermostat. If the fan is not operating, this will damage the entire system. replace the fan if it isn't working. check the filter as well.

No instuctions on how to brown or sautee food----------how do you brown food???? very disapointed in manuel


Browning and sauteing food really depends upon the type of oven you have. If it is a microwave oven only then there are speciic food containers that are designed to get hot. If a convection type oven then the grill browns the food.

Our new microwave heats the containers but not the food. Container is too hot to touch. Food "looks" hot, usually boiling - but food isn't even warm.


Check on the material the containers are made of. If they are not microwave friendly then they will cause problems.
Some materials are designed to "Roast" the contents by absorbing the energy.
Check with a Pyrex glass container and water. The glass should stay fairly cool.

My ifb microwave oven is getting hot outside while


Normally when u cook food in microwave the fod is cooked by microwaves, which means the heat is generated with in food. The temperature inside is never too hot and all the heat produced is absorbed with in the food.

On the other hand when the grill is switched on, a separate heatting element gets switched on. You can see this red hot element on the top side of inside of microwave. the heat from this element gets transferred to food through air circulation. But partof heat also gets transferred to the walls of microwave oven. This is the reason the wall feel hot during use of grill.

As i see ther is no problem with the microwave itself. Jut kep delicate thngs a bit away from the microwave.

Microwave does not heat food placed in the center of the turntable. Leaves a cold spot in the middle of the food.


This is normal. That's why I always recommend to my customers that the food be placed slightly off-center on the turntable. An analogy I refer to is stirring paint: If you stir paint with a stick by simply rotating the stick in the center of the can, it's far less effective than pulling the stick around an imaginary circle halfway bewteen the center and the edge.
