I'd say don't play with your microwave. These things can cause you a nasty injury or death if you don't put them back together correctly.

Service technicians have a tool to measure leaking microwave levels after the put them back together.

Your best choice is to get it professionally repaired if it is an expensive model or just get rid of it and buy a new one.

I don't suppose it is still under warenty.

Want run or turn on to heat food


if your microwave is not heating food there could be two possible reasons. firstly maybe its the high voltage fuse that's gone,in that case the display is on the motor rotates but no heating since power is not reaching the magnetron. Secondly if your high voltage fuse is ok,display is there but no heating, the magnetron is faulty and it needs replacement

Coleman EB15A - Buzzing noise from transformer area, no heat or fan


see this causes and proceed. God bless you
Magnetron If the microwave is loud or noisy only when cooking, the magnetron tube might be defective. The magnetron uses high voltage, high current DC power to generate the microwave frequency that cooks the food. Under normal circumstances the magnetron is nearly silent. However if it is damaged or nearly burned out it can begin emitting high pitched or growling noises. It's not normally dangerous to use a microwave oven when it makes these noises, but they are an indication that the magnetron is almost dead and will need to be replaced.

Exhaust Fan Motor If the microwave is loud when running the fan motor might be
Stirrer Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the stirrer motor might be worn out. The stirrer is a metal blade which slowly turns around, deflecting the microwave energy in a random pattern inside the microwave oven. As the motor nears the end of its useful life it begins to make grinding noises. The microwave will not heat food evenly without this stirrer, the motor should be replaced.

Turntable Motor If the microwave is loud or noisy the turntable motor might be worn out. This is a common problem and relatively easy to replace.

Sometimes the turntable would run and then it would quit for days or weeks food still cooked. Now it has not turned in months.


The turntable motor will need to be replaced, the advantage when it is working, the food is heated more evenly when it is turning, but it is not essential to replace.

My GE White Spacemaker Microwave just stopped heating-you hear the motor running but the light inside grows bright to dim by a few watts while going thru any cycle of heating. Any answers?


The magnetron has probably failed, there are also two other parts that can be a factor, the high voltage capacitor and diode, the high voltage is generated by these items which in turn heat the food.

I hv a 24ltr Sharp Carasoul Microwave. Few days back, its plate stopped working, but its heating the food fine. Why has the plate stopped rotating? Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate...


> Why has the plate stopped rotating?

The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You order Sharp parts Encompass here or call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

> Will the food be evenly heated even though the plate is not rotating?

No.
