E-wave KOT-152UB glass tray and turning ring melted

I believe that my wife set the Ewave microwave oven to cook rather than setting the timer. The plastic tray support ring caught fire and the glass tray melted over the spot where the plastic ring burned. The glass tray had a spot about 2" in diameter that was glowing red. What happened here?

Sounds like some metal is involved somehow. If the unit otherwise works, replace the damaged parts. Test with a cup filled with water.

What size is the glass tray/plate?

My glass plate broke a very long time ago. you don't really need it. take a regular ceramic plate and turn it UPSIDE DOWN Then you can set anything on top of it to cook. Just a thought and Good Luck.
If you have other microwave problems check the videos below.

My Ewave Model #KOT-153UB operates fully but does not heat up. Is this fixable?

The part that makes the heat isn't too expensive. It may be a fuse . If it is then you have to find the cause of it failing. You don't say whether it's a table top or over the cook top style microwave. If it's over the cook top it's a chore getting it down for service. Check an appliance repair company to see if the repair costs are way less than the cost of a new one. If it is then go ahead with the repair.

Burns my popcorn constantly. is there a different setting i can put it on?


Solution to your microwave problem is given as below.

* 1 Set your Daewoo microwave on a countertop near an electrical outlet and plug it in. Open the door and place the circular roller guide in the center of the oven cavity, then place the glass cooking tray over it.

* 2 Set your food on a microwave-safe dish and then put the dish on the cooking tray and close the door. Make sure that it latches properly.

* 3 Turn the upper knob to select a power level. Power levels include "Defrost," "Med-High," or "High." If your Daewoo has a touch pad, touch the "Microwave" button once to set the highest power level. Touch it consecutive times to lower the power level.

* 4 Turn the lower knob to set the cooking time. For cooking times less than two minutes, turn the knob up past the two-minute mark, then back to the correct time. For touch pad models, enter in the cooking time with the numerical keys and then press "Start."

* 5 Open the door at any time to stop the cooking and check the temperature of your food. Shut the door to automatically continue cooking, or turn the timer knob to the right to add more time. For touch pads, press the "Stop/Clear" button, then key in a new cooking time and press "Start."

* 6 Open the door when the timer reaches the "Off" position and take out your food.

Ewave panel is on lock

As per the owner's manual:

The oven operation can be locked to prevent the microwave from accidentally being turned on. All oven functions can be locked.

To Set: Touch and hold the CANCEL/OFF Pad for three seconds. The Display shows “LOCKED” and the oven beeps.

To Cancel: Touch and hold the CANCEL/OFF Pad for three seconds. “LOCKED” disappears from the Display and the oven beeps.

If this does not work, then try a hard reset: Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If it still fails, you probably have a problem with the controller.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee. It may cost a little more if you need parts, such as a new keypad.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.
