I'm thinking that the circuit board has a problem. I doubt it will work but disconnect all the connectors on the board...with the power off and reconnect. It may clean off some goo. If not, use your method as long as it will work and then consider a new board.

How do I set the microwave for 50% power?


Hello, Linda -

Without knowing the make and model of microwave oven you are asking about I can only give general instructions. You can add the make and model of microwave by choosing Comment and adding the information there.

Generally, after placing whatever you want to heat or cook in a microwave save dish or on a microwave safe plate and place the food and dish inside the microwave and closing the door, you follow these steps:
- Using the key pad / number pad, press in the time you want the microwave to run
- Assuming there is a POWER button on the key pad, press that button
- Most likely a P will display
- On the keypad, press 50 (for 50 %) or maybe just 5
- Press START

This web page provides detailed instructions:

Sears kenmore elite has a message display to enter tcp code. kenmore microwave oven


TCP is "True Cook Plus" in Kenmore speak.
Here is a cut/paste of a section of the manual.

TrueCookPlus " can adjust to your tastes - to cook your food hotter or cooler - automatically: Example Clear 1. Press the Clear button. (§H§ 1 2. Press the TrueCookPlus® button twice. 3. If you want less cooking time when you enter a TrueCookPlus code, press 1. This will decrease the time by 6%. 345 4. If you want more cooking time when you enter a TrueCookPlus® code: Press 3 for 3% more cooking time. Press 4 for 6% more cooking time. Press 5 for 9% more cooking time. 2 5. Press 2 to reset TrueCookPlus* to factory setting default time. 6. Press the Start button.
I didn't try to clean up the copy
Hope this makes sense and helps.

R-402JW-T won't cook


From your description you have a bad door switch, there are usually a few of them located inside the microwave under the keypad control board that will need a digital meter to trouble shoot.

Not heating


Hello


Power Supply

Check whether there is a proper power supply. Look to see whether the cord is connected to a grounded 3-prong outlet and the cord is fully plugged in. If the electrical system is built-in and no power cord is visible, replace or reset the household fuse or circuit breaker.

Microwave Functions

Some basic microwave operational steps may affect whether the microwave is heating. Open and close the microwave door, as the unit will not function with the door open, and push "Stop/Clear" to cancel any previous settings, such as the timer, which do not heat the microwave oven.

Setting the Microwave

Once the power to the microwave has been reset, or verified as working, and the microwave is ready to run, select a new cook cycle and press "Start" to see if the microwave begins to run and cook food as expected. Allow the food to cook for the alloted time and then open the microwave door and check to see if the food has cooked or heated. Choose a longer cooking time and restart the microwave if food is heating but is cooking slowly.

Repair

If all efforts to troubleshoot the function and power to the microwave still do not get the appliance heating food as expected, there may be a repair issue that needs to be addressed. Contact professional technician for advice.

My samsung microwave oven is not heating up food. It works normally, lights on, food turning on plate, but not heating the food.


if your microwave does everything you have described , and you can hear the cooling fan running as well after you press the start button , you probably have a faulty wave guide. The wave guide is also called a Magnetron Tube. It is the main part of the microwave which produces the microwave energy . If this part is not functioning it is best to replace the entire unit, rather than have it repaired .

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.

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.
