We had this happen to us tonight. We unplugged the microwave oven for 15 seconds and then plugged it in, but it the fan was still running. We then unplugged it for 30 minutes and the fan worked properly when we plugged it in again.

My Goldstar MV1608 stopped rotating and heating food yesterday. All other functions seem to be operating such as the light, fan, panel, etc. It is 18 months old. How can I fix it?


If there is no heating it is possible that the MAGNETRON has failed provided there is supply feed to the unit when the microwave is powered. Normally the magnetron along with the fan and light comes on when the microwave power is triggered. So since the rotation is absent it is possible that there is no power feed from the processor board which can be related to a driver failure. You need to check the output from the PROCESSOR to confirm and pinpoint the defective component. Check the relay to the magnetron trigger as this can be a suspect.

Goldstar Microwave stirrer fan sparks


Stirrers are designed to distribute the microwaves and were used before turntables were introduced. They are protected by a plastic cover in order to prevent food spatter from contacting stirrer. They are not powered and are insulated on nylon bushings. Where exactly is the arcing occurring?

Switch for stovetop light on Goldstar over-the-range microwave


This is caused by a failure in the Sharp solid state relay "chip" (S201DH2). The newer pin-compatible versions don't seem to suffer this weakness. I used the R31HD2 (http://document.sharpsma.com/files/pr21hd22_e.pdf) which should still be available in the US for less than $10 delivered from Mouser or similar retail friendly parts houses.

A simple repair for someone with the tools and basic skills for removing and replacing a chip that is soldered to a printed circuit board. If you lack either of these, better to order a replacement board or have it serviced professionally.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

Feel free to contact me directly.

No power


I would say a cooktop lamp got shorted by the moisture.

Assuming your circuit breaker is good, the main problem would probably be a blown 15A or 20A ceramic fuse inside the unit.

Once that's replaced, if the hood lights and /or exhaust fan still don't work, then your control panel would need to be repaired, which we do for $39.95 nationwide.

If you or someone you know decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

If and when you remove or install cooktop lamps, the power to the oven must be unplugged or turned off at the breaker.
