# Just trying to figure out the heat settings. which is the hottest, gradually decreasing to the lowest. i have 1500W, 1200W and 900W settings then i have high, medium and low for each of the wattage settings. so for example, would 900W at a high setting be warmer than 1500W at a medium setting? what would be the heat in degrees in each combination setting?

1200w at high setting OR 1500 w at medium setting?

1200w at medium setting OR 900w at high setting?

===
the way i see it is- there are 3 heat settings (high, medium,low) and 3 wattage settings. therefore - there are nine different temperature outputs. so what then are the rankings of hottest to the lowest temperature?

again thanks

what is the warmer setting?

first)
1200w at high setting OR 1500 w at medium setting?

second)
1200w at medium setting OR 900w at high setting?

roniecon- i liked your answer. so if i understand you correctly- (as you said- it is confusing)

at 1500w and High- gives the highest heat whereas 900w and low gives the lowest. and 1200w at medium gives in between.heat.

now the tricky part- for example, the 1200w (which is between 1500w and 900w) at high temperature achieves the high heat at a lower rate of speed so it happens slower than the 1500w setting and faster than the 900w setting.

am i understanding you correctly?

• stephencresp Oct 06, 2009

thanks - so now i understand... the greater the wattage the greater the heat output and this is realized by recognizing 1500W @medium is warmer than 1200watts @ high

so if i am right ....1500 W @ low will produce greater heat than 900 watts at high. am i right?

Hmm this isn't the point ...but to say so ...the 1500W medium will be warmer than maximum 900W ...to make you understand sir...the xxx W are the resistance ...meaning the power quantity consumed ..so ..in theory a high amount of power consumed ...a higher energy result ..
those are for to be able to set the energy you want to consume or you are willing to ...like a heater with more then one unit ...and you power up one ...two ..or three of them ...
the other needs no explanations cause its clear ...from low to high ...

High,and 1500 would be the hottest setting,the low ,med,high settings cut the elements off quicker,thats all,the degree of heat would reach,for example ,1500,and cut off,and cool down to about 900watts.The 1500 watt setting will keep the heat at 1500 watts steady,or there about.same goes with the other settings,it is confusing.

No the hottest setting on this is 1500 watts and on high and the coolest is 900w on low. The hottest it will get at a close area of the heater would be about 85-90 degrees and going lower the further away. These heaters will heat a good 12x12 room to about a constant 85 degrees on a medium setting. I have had 2 of these heaters in the past, very good room warmers but use a lot of energy. The easiest way to use is to start it off high for about 20 minutes and then turn it down to about 900w and high heat level. Should maintain a comfortable level in a medium size room as long as you can circulate the heat.

1500w on high, 1200w on high, 1500w on medium, 1200w on medium, 900w on high, 900w on medium, 1500w on low, 1200w on low, 900w on low.

Helo there:
the 1500 w setting is the highest setting that poroduces the most heat the lower the numbers the less amount of heat is produced and the high/medium low is how fast the internal fan is running and blowing out heat. ok hope this helps ok?

### Duromax xp4000s only puts out 15amps at 3600rpm???? wont carry a 900watt micro wave???

That is double the amperage required to run a 900W oven so the problem could be that the unit isn't producing the correct voltage as to not carry the oven at 15 A the voltage will be under 60V

### I have a Sainsbury microwave SKU 126251366 and no user manual. Can anyone help?

SKU number is not a lot of good as this is the just the sales code on the supermarket shelf. You would need a make and model number. Sainsbury's didn't make it, a microwave company did. By law, there should be a model number on the back with voltage, amps, and serial number.

<model number> manual

or

Try Sainsbury's direct.

### I need to know the wattage of my magic chef oven model 6898VV

There's little to be found on the internet for this model oven now. There should be a name plate / manufacturer's sticker either inside the door - on the jamb; or on the rear near the power cord. If you see a rating given as "120VAC / 1200W" this would indicate INPUT wattage, which would be higher than the amount used for cooking. A typical 1200W rated microwave might have 800 - 1000 Watts of cooking power. If there are 2 ratings for wattage like 120V / 1200W / 850W; the 850 Watts is the amount of cooking power. The cooking power - or wattage - is always lower than the total wattage. If you see a rating somewhere that indicates 900W cooking power, then that would be the cooking power of the oven.

If you're not satisfied or unsure about the information you're finding on the oven - or it is missing - you might want to contact Magic Chef Customer Service Department at (888) 775-0202. They should be able to help you - or pint you in the right direction.

Good luck!

### Hi sharp microwave R-33ST 900w was used to defrost now won't heat anything up how do I change settings back?

It should default to the highest power setting.

If not, you can reset it by unplugging the power for a minute or two, plugging it back in, and setting the clock.

Otherwise, refer to your owner's manual.

### Ribbon is melting

Hi

You have the heat setting in the driver set too high.

Lower the heat setting to the lowest possible setting, the print quality will probably be poor then gradually increase it by 1 until print quality is good.

### How can I find our what the controls mean, the dots on the 6500????

I could not easily find an instruction sheet, but I believe that the top knob is the thermostat... rotate it clockwise for higher temperatures and counter-clockwise to lower the temperature. The lower knob controls the number of heating elements. The first dot/dash if for the 600W element only, the second longer dot/dash is for the 900W element only; and the longest dot/dash is to select both the heating elements giving 1500W total output power.
I hope this helps...
