LED displays ''STAGE'' after magnetron replacement on DANBY DMW162W-OTR

Hi,
magnetron was replaced on a DANBY DMW162W-OTR microwave.
LED display now shows ''STAGE''.
Unit starts but does not heat.
This ''STAGE'' status is not specified in user guide, and i cannot find a service manual.
any kind of help would be appreciated.

    Hi Microwavesvc,
    this model goes back 3 years and is discontinued.
    All three Danby service dealer i have called do not want to even try to fix because its discontinued. I cannot even get the magnetron from Danby because its discontinued.
    I have met a local ''appliance'' tech who was willing to give it a shot.
    He found a ''generic'' ,magnetron ( same specs ) in Colorado.
    It was installed, giving the status ''STAGE'' on the display.
    The ''dummy'' type user guide is incomplete and worthless.
    What i need is a ''service manual'' which a cannot find anywhere.
    A service manual would probably point me to a combination of digits on the keypad that would ''reset'' the unit.
    I have submitted this issue to Danby service to be told that a tech would call me back with an answer, ....which was not the case.
    Danby makes cheap products and don't stand behind what they make.
    thank you Microwavesvc for responding
    Pierre

What does the service center have to say about this?

Or did you do it yourself?

I removed the bolts for my Danby OTR microwave. Dmw162w-otr. The microwave does not move. Are there any other bolts or is there anything I am missing before I can remove the microwave?


In a normal installation, there is a plate that mounts to the wall and bolts come down through the cabinet. Once the bolts are removed from the cabinet above mic, the mic should hindge forward. It takes two people to handle. How ever, in some cases an installation guy will add screws into the side of the unit. So look for some screws to the right and left of mic. Good luck!

I have the danby designer Mod DMW162W-ORT that won`t heat at all but everything else works. Hums a bit louder but will not warm.


The Magnetron in your unit is no longer resonating properly. The Magnetron produces the microwave frequencies and when it resonates properly, it will provide the excitation to heat your item(s). As well, the diode that accompanies the magnetron needs to be replaced as well. Should it be under warranty, take it back. Out of warranty? Have an appliance tech repair it (usually around $175) or get a new microwave.

This is typical for most microwaves. No such thing as quality any more.

Microwave will not heat food but everything else works.


HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron)))
