Re: microwave faulty

High voltage parts are suspect. You are looking at replacing either the magnatron or the high-voltage capacitor and diode. Its affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"
Hope ya fix it!

Hi Chloe,
Depending on where you bought this unit, typically, the first 30 days is in store exchange. This is a door switch problem. If you bought it online, contact the seller. I don't know what the warranty on this unit is..

How to get a burnt smell out of mocrowave

Mix some vinegar in a cup of water, put in microwave and set for 60 seconds, {may need more time} and wait till it starts to steam {may need to repeat} this will bind itself to the interior eliminating the burnt smell.

My microwave produce less heat

If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off.

Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on, use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely

Unit turns on, turntable turns, but nothing heats

Classic symptoms for failed door interlock safety switches, though it could be other trouble.

Remove the cover and check the operation of the little micro switches that operate when you close the door.


If you regularly open the door while cooking, the contacts in these little switches become burned. When burned badly enough, they cannot make contact. When they cannot make contact, the mocrowave doesnt know the door is closed and will not turn on the magnatron resulting in no heat.

If you need more help, let me know.

Microwave won't shut off

the timer is more than likely broken. There are no replacement parts and the mocrowave will need to be replaced...or keep the door open when not in use, and use a watch to keep track of cook times
