SOURCE: oven and microwave combo

Your microwave is plugged into an outlet built into the top of the oven. This outlet has a "circuit breaker" that trips when using the self cleaning feature. This is a design flaw that Jenn-Air/Whirlpool refuses to acknowledge. You just need to reset the breaker button that the microwave is plugged into. It's right next to the outlet.

Of course, getting to the reset button is your only challenge. You need to pull the microwave and oven out of the wall/cabinetry in order to get to it. The unit is heavy so you will need help. Or, call a certified repairman and they should be able to do this for you in 30 minutes or less so the service call should not run you more than @$85 if it is no longer under warranty.

I would also suggest you contact Jenn-Air to complain about this issue and seek reimbursement from them if necessary.

SOURCE: LG microwave no longer heats!

It sounds as though you may have run the microwave while empty, which can damage the magnetron.

Not that I'm optimistic, but the first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Otherwise it likely needs a new magnetron.

SOURCE: MICROWAVE OVEN DOES NOT HEAT ALL OTHER FUNCTIONS WORK

Since the light comes on and the turntable rotates, I would suspect a bad magnetron, a loose connection at the magnetron, a failed high voltage transformer, or shorted high voltage rectifier diode.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Ifit's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years)but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then yourmanufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you orthe labor charge to do the work.

If you or a friend want to work on it, please see these links first:http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt& http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/xformer.html

Thereshould also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which isvery helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

For Frigidaire models, you can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Or you can find your nearest Frigidaire/Maytag-authorized servicer here.

You can visit Daewoo onlineor call them at 1-800-323-9668 or 1-800-553-4355 to find parts or findyour nearest authorized service center to have them do the work.

Hello Keith Sprague,

Spelling is close and your guess is quite excellent...

Before you ENGAGE in a wholesale repair effort...

You should check your machine is not in DEMO mode...

Demo Mode
Activate to practice using the control without actually turning on
the magnetron. Touch and hold number pad "3" for 3 seconds. The

Everything works except heat


Sounds like you've had a failure in the microwave portion of the unit.

Microwave not heating problems when the timer/controller board appears to function properly, are related to the following components -

1) Diode
2) Capacitor
3) Transformer
4) Magnetron

Panasonic Microwave Oven Stops After 15 seconds - Never Heats


If it stops at 16 seconds and is a sensor model, it probably has a defective humidity sensor.

You can order Panasonic parts from Tritronics.

If you reconsider, you can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.
