Chances are that the magnetron has stopped working. Unless it is under the guarantee or is a very expensive micro it really wont be worth fixing.

SOURCE: No turntable, no heat. Light, vent fan and keypad all work...

That would be a problem with your primary interlock switch or its mount.

NOTE: There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: Microwave turns on, but no heat or turntable movement

The problem is that the magnatron is not getting power. Chance is that if could be a bolwn fuse inside the unit. If the fuse don't fix it then that leaves the charging diode, capacitor or the magnatron, or high voltage xformer of which without technical epertize I would not recomend attempting to replace. good luck

SOURCE: Fan & Turntable start when door is opened.

sounds like there is a switch that is bad. you can go buy a new MW for about 200$ and in yours if there is a major problem then i would just go buy a new one but might be worth a repair man to come check it out


pleas do not poke around in the microwave as it carries a charge of 5000volts and can kill you even if not plugged in DON'T TOUCH THE WIRES WITH BRAIDS ON THE OUT SIDE if you must get inside of the unit

You have a bad secondary interlock (lower door switch) or its mount is damaged or out of alignment.

We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

SOURCE: All funtchions work except it dos'nt heat up

I tried the ICE60705 number and it did not cross http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/modelsearch.aspx?model=IEC60705

Is that a serial number by chance?

To do any of the below the chassis cover must be removed.

To perform a diode resistance check you must first ground the high voltage capacitor several times to avoid a nasty shock.

To check the Diode you have to disconnect one side if the diode before reading resistance. Read the Diode on R X 1000 and then reverse the meter leads is should only ONE way. IF it reads both directions or not at all then it has failed.

To check the HV Capacitor (After grounding) you reverse the leads repeatedlyand watch for a momentary jump on an analog meter EACH time the leads are reversed. No jump of the meter needle = bad Capacitor.

Diodes can be found here:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/?keyword=Diode%2c+Sharp

I know that this is an 850W free standing Microwave. I just can recall the model number from memory.

If you find either one of the 2 parts bad I recommend contacting a LOCAL appliance parts center with parts in hand for the simple fact the model number is not crossing.

Just make sure they failed per directions above before replacement.

Thanks again for choosing FixYa.

Kelly

P.s. If the above parts check out good then that leaves the door switch or the magnetron as possible failures. If the Magnetron has failed you may want to evaluate repair vs total unit replacement cost of the microwave.

If the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable are not all coming on when you hit "Start" to cook, then you likely have a bad top or bottom door switch, or that switch's mount is loose, misaligned, or broken.

See these help files:
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/safety.txt
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/disassembly.txt
http://031d26d.namesecurehost.com/mwd/doorsw.txt

If the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable are all coming on when you hit "Start" to cook, then chances are you have a failed high voltage diode or magnetron or a bad connection at the magnetron.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Frigidaire model cfmv156fmc allows programming, lights work but when hitting go wont turn on yet timer is counting down.


If the inside light comes on when you try to cook, but the turntable and internal cooling fan do NOT, then that's a bad bottom door switch or that switch's mount.

See this helpful text file.

If the inside light, turntable, and internal cooling fan DO all come on when you try to cook, but it does not cook, then you have a bad relay or connection on the control circuit board, which we can repair for $39.95. Details here.

We have the service manual and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

Most likely you have a magnetron problem. Easy to replace (DYI) but make sure the high voltage capacitor is fully discharged first against the case.

GE Microwave Model # JE1860: Unit does not heat. The timer counts down, but the oven does not heat.


When you hit Start to cook, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable come on?

Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

These answers will help me judge whether it's in the high voltage section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section (door switch or control board relay or connection).

Dacor dcm24s.light, fan, and control panel work but turntable and heat do not


Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.
