Question about Daewoo KOG-867T Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Daewoo cog 370a

The light is out in this microwave.
I took off the panel off on the inside right wall. Can't find anything in there.

I turned it upside down and unplugged it. There was a screw in the bottom where there is a grill. I unscrewed it and pushed on the plastic tab in the grill. I thought it would open. I didn't.

Now the screw won't go back in because whatever it screwed into is not there. and of course, the plastic tab won't come out.

My question is what did I do by taking out the screw and pushing in the tab. Is it safe to use?

I guess I'll just forget about replacing the light unless you have any suggestions.

I don't know the Daewoo. The cover you removed inside would only expose the mouth of the magnetron (where the microwave radiation enters the oven). Generally, the light is accessed after removing the outer cover of the oven. It is usually held on by a number of screws around the sides and back, maybe even under.
Disconnect the oven from power, remove all the screws, manoeuvre the cover off. There MAY be a wire connected to the cover, it will be green/ yellow, disconnect this by pulling on the cover end (usually).
Now look around. The bulb may be obvious, if not, look for a device with 2 terminals on it, or 2 wired entering it, the bulb can usually be withdrawn by pulling gently. You may have to disconnect the wires to remove it completely.
If the bulb has a screw or bayonet base, you can probably get a replacement from a hardware store, an electrical store or an electrical wholsaler. If the bulb has an unusual base, you will need to obtain a replacement from the manufacturer or an appliance repair place. Ensure the voltage and wattage marked on your replacement is identical to the old one.
While in the oven, look for the plastic "thing" you pushed out. It is probably an insert to take the screw. Replace it in its fitting hole if possible, if not, don't worry, it should get by fine without it! Just don't replace that screw.
There is a small possibility the outer cover will vibrate and make noise because of the missing screw.
Don't forget to replace the wire to the cover, if you took one off it!

Why does our new microwave not work? Can set the time and it counts down when we have pressed start but does nothing else.

There is a big fuse inside that thing. Check to see that it is not open. Could be that the magnetron, lite, and dish are all on the same circuit.

Why does my halogen oven only work when the top is turned upside down?

You have a sensor in upside down. Usually the lids only work when down, switch off when not - go back over what you took apart and see if there is something you could have got 180 degrees wrong.

Microwave gets really hot on inside, especially the right wall, but the food will not get hot at all

it seems that the right wall inside of the microwave is absorbing most of the microwave energy. If the panels are replaceable then you might want to consider having them replaced but it probably wouldn't be worth it. Maybe buying a new microwave will save you a lot of expense and grief.

Good luck
