Likely the magnetron is gone. check your warranty on this part with you book. otherwise it is a costly repair.

Bosch microwave oven,turntable not working,food not heated


Even if the turntable isn't turning, the oven should still heat the food but it will be uneven cooking. I would suggest that the unit is not "microwaving" This is usually the high voltage capacitor, fuse or diode failure. You will need knowledge of how microwave ovens work and specialist tools to test these. If you don't, I would suggest you get a tech who does. There are extremely high voltages in microwave ovens.

I have a High Pointe model EM925Bss-s and although the turntable does not work the oven still works. Is this dangerous?


no as long as you never put any metal or foil inside but food won't heat evenly , the turntable can usually be fixed by cleaning out center bearing with Q tip and a shot of oven cleaner this sometimes gets lots of food and grease build up from heavy use machines (usually mass food prep areas) and slows and stops the drive of turntable

Why can't you run a microwave without anything in it? What happens and can you fix the problem? I forgot to put the food in and ran it for 4 minutes with nothing inside. Now it won't heat any food.


A microwave oven works on the principal of a high power high frequency radio transmitter. The device that emits the microwave energy is a tube called a magnetron . When you run the microwave empty with nothing to absorb the microwave energy it is all reflected back to the magnetron causing it to overheat and destroy itself or cause failure in the High Voltage power supply due to excessive current draw.This is caused by standing waves.

My delonghi 800w microwave oven works but does not heat up food


If your handy with getting the cover off and looking inside... check the obvious.
I suspect :
fuse
thermister
relay
If both microwave and Heating elements dont work, then I will assume the magnetron is ok, ans we are dealing with a high voltage issue... and you will need at best... a volt meter and or neon troublelight...
moust appliances have a simple schematic inside... I would start with the heating element first... trace wiring back to circuit board... usually one side of the heating element is connected to the white wire (neutral) and live (Hot) side is controlled thru the circuit board... so finding the neutral should be easy... then trace with neon light or voltmeter...

I know easy for me to say... but with everything else working... it doesnt seem to be the microprocessor that controlls the unit...

Sharp carousel microwave model # 508ak has power but does not heat food when you press the start button. thanks in advance!


9 times out of 10 this is usually this is a bad magnetron, the other time is sometimes a bad high voltage diode. See components section. Q - My microwave is running and sounds like it is working but will not heat up anything.
A - Many thing can do this but, common things are....loose high voltage wire.....poor solder joint on board.....magnetron.....power relay.....

Q - The microwave display counts down and the inside light is on, but nothing is heating and the fan is not running.
A - This most commonly is a bad door switch, other possible problems are a faulty relay or solder joint on the power module, but a bad door switch is most common.
thanks.

Microwave will not heat


Q - The microwave makes a loud "hum or buzz" noise but will not heat up the food?

A - This most commonly is a bad door switch, other possible problems are a faulty relay or solder joint on the power module, but a bad door switch is most common.
Q - The fan in my microwave oven is not running will this hurt my microwave?
A - YES, the fan cools the magnetron and electronics, take the microwave in for service, most fans are not too expensive to replace.
Q - My microwave blows the fuse inside itself as soon as I push the start button.
A - Usually a shorted high voltage capacitor...see components section.

GE spacesaver jvm240av microwave shuts down during cycle


I have not gotten a solution for this problem. I thought your website said one of the experts would respond for free. Seems like that must have been a hoax to give you the opportunity to sell me something. Shame on you!

I am still waiting for the free assistance, as advertised.
