Question about Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

Oster Microwave/Convection/Grill Brand new unit. Won't cook. Attempted to microwave popcorn and cup of coffee. Oven works for a couple of seconds then beeps several times and stops. Help! thanx, :) Melinda I have the same Oster microwave/confection. I have the same problem with the popcorn also (and all the other things - except minute plus), which is ridiculous. I thought I was getting an upscale model, since I paid twice as much as the others. I'm looking for a new owner's manual because I remember reading the complicated directions and I believe there is a code (system of numbers and buttons) that you have to push for different things (which is crazy because there is a "microwave" button right on the face)... As far as the shutting off, I think you may not have enough power for it. There was a warning in the manual for it. You may have to check your manual and circuit breaker to see. If you haven't bought this, don't, it's a waste of money....I'm just trying to get some use out of it - I bought it 2 months ago.

Return it. If you bought it from Target you have 3 months. I have the same unit and the microwave unit failed. The convection oven is not always reliable either.

Try the unit out on some differnet outlets. Microwave ovens pretty well max out the typ. house circuit and going to one that is better wired or less loaded may make the difference

Have a kitchenaid microwave KHMS2040WSS brand new. Is there a way to set the popcorn sensor for a smaller bag? Right now it is set for 3.5oz and burns all the popcorn.


I have never seen a microwave that doesn't burn popcorn if you use the "popcorn" button. Why the manufacturers keep putting them on I'll never understand. There's nothing you can do change the presets on an oven since they are built into the controller. Instead of relying on the oven, you should follw the directions on the bag. These tell you to use high power, stay by the oven and stop the cooking when the time between pops drops to 1 or 2 seconds. Stored heat will continue to pop kernels for a bit, and you won't cremate your popcorn. You'll also avoid the possibility of the bag catching fire and damaging the oven, which I have seen several times. Finally, don't expect 100% of the kernels to pop. There wil always be a few duds, and extending the cooking time just results in burned popcorn.

My Dacor DCM24 microwave/convection oven is brand new and won't pop popcorn--old or new, large or small bag, with twice as much time as is on the bag, power on high. Doesn't work with the popcorn button...


Are you cooking it this way, as shown in the owner's manual?

"Use an overturned 9 or 10 inch oven proof glass pie plate on top of the
turntable when popping bagged microwave popcorn.
"

You can also use a paper plate in a pinch, but as always, never leave a microwave unattended while it's cooking, since some paper products can have impurities which will allow overheating and possibly fire.

This is a convection oven, so it has a metal turntable tray.

Microwaves cannot penetrate the metal from below like it would on a standard microwave's glass tray, allowing for even heating.

If you've lost your owner's manual, you can get it here.

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