When turned on oven will run 1/2 second, then go off. Clock, fan, etc work fine, so it's not electrical connection.

GE Spacemaker microwave makes groaning sound when start button is pressed for a second or two then blows the internal fuse. After replacing the fuse everything seemed to work, lights, exhaust fan, cl


Could be a lot of things but most probably a shorted high voltage diode assembly. If not that then the magaetron or capactors. Remember be careful there are high voltages even when the oven is unpluged. The capactors are usually charged and must be discharged. If you don't know what yor doing then time to get a qualfied tech.

Good luck

My Whirlpool microwave model MH6130XEB-1 made a pop noise and now will no longer heat food. Everything else works fine, clock, timer, fan, turn table, etc. Is this a fuse problem?


It can be the fuse supplying the magnetron, or the magnetron itself which has failed. Another suspect is the high voltage capacitor in this circuit.


Don't try to fix this yourself as the internals of a microwave are dangerous, with high voltages even when unplugged.

I have maytag advance cooking system(electric) and the oven will not work.The timer to set the oven and the time is not lighting up but the stove is working.any sugestion


try resetting the clock. If it is digital, push the clock button and then the number buttons untill you have the proper time displayed...then push the clock button again. If your clock and timer are manual, try pushing in the clock lever and turning it 1/4 turn. If this works it would indicate that your timer has a start and finish time and that the oven is not working because the clock has rotated around to the finish time.

Microwave runs for about 2 seconds then shuts off, then comes back on, then on, off, etc. Takes forever to just run 20 seconds, heat works but not efficiently. Clock flickers, too, and runs slow. Took...


Since the clock flickers, I would investigate the receptacle you have it plugged into as it or the circuit may be intermittent. This COULD even be a fire hazard. If the receptacle uses those push in wiring, get rid of it and replace with one using screw terminals.

Do not heat any longer, lights, clock and fan work


In situtions such as these it can be considered that the Magnatron has passed on. Co0t of repair often exceeds the value of replacement.
No fuse controls the magnatron separately from the rest of the unit so deem it dead

With the availability of good second hand models on the market via pawn shops like Cash Converters etc one can find a very good unit with 30 day warranty for $50-100 and its already been checked over for defects

Daewoo MT1510B problem


Chances are your magnetron is overheating, activating the magnetron thermostat, which resets and restores power when it cools.

Your manual may call for you to put a paper plate under the popcorn bag to heat better and to protect the turntable. (And always place the food slightly off-center on the turntable, for the same reasons!)

You should first confirm that the outlet reads about 110-120 volts AC and that the microwave is on its own breaker. If a microwave shares a breaker with another high current device (or even lights) it can affect operation.

Then be sure the microwave's internal cooling fan is running.

If this is an over the range model, it will also have a exhaust hood vent fan which you can turn on and off at will, but this is not the fan I'm talking about.

The internal cooling fan should be on whenever the oven is cooking. If not, the magnetron can overheat and eventually be destroyed.

The next issue is how long you've had the oven.

If it's within the 30-day dealer exchange period, I'd take it back for a new one pronto.

If it's within the full warrranty period (usually 1 year) Daewoo's service center should fix it free.

You can visit Daewoo online or call them at 1-800-323-9668 or 1-800-553-4355 to find parts or find your nearest authorized service center to have them do the work.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Could be the relay, an internal fuse. With the power off, open up the key panel and search for a fuse. Also, there are thermo sensors black, diameter of a dime and 3/8 inch thick with two wires. Check the fuse and replace if necessary. The thermo can be jumped out to test. Remove the wires, use a paper clip between them and tape it up. Briefly turn the unit on. Replace if it works now. The thermo is generally clamped to the wall of the oven behind the key panel. Never run without the thermo sensor.

Sounds like the problem is in the high voltage. Most common would be magnatron, capacitor and diode. For safety reasons this should be checked by a professional. Look in your owners manual because some high voltage parts have a longer warranty than 1 yr.
