Unit will not function

Hello, I went to use my microwave this afternoon, set the time went to activate, complete system went dark, no response of any kind. Checked to make sure cord was plugged in and that circuit had not tripped, negative on both counts. Unplugged and let it set for a bit, still no response. Any idea what may have happened and is there anyone that can repair these units in downstate Illinois.

Microwave won't turn on and beeps flashing numbers


Some newer microwave models will not function UNTIL you set the CLOCK Function ... ok
There should be instructions in your microwave MANUAL to tell you how to do this; as it can vary widely between different brands and models.

My JennAir went completely dead. It is probably 13 years old. Should I replace or have someone try to fix it?


Hello -

I cannot give you instruction on how to remove the kit(?) surrounding your microwave.

I can provide you with information which may help you decide if arranging for an repair technician authorized to service your JennAir microwave is the best option compared to replacing it. I refer you to the information from Angie's List:

Best wishes.

Forgot how to set clock on Morphy Richards P90D23AL-B7/H Microwave Oven


Iain's solution is great but one addition to it which threw me completely.... if changing your clock in the afternoon.... the time isn't using a 24hr clock, it's just a 12 hour one so if you are wondering why the time still won't set try using the 12hr clock instead

Not heating


Hello


Power Supply

Check whether there is a proper power supply. Look to see whether the cord is connected to a grounded 3-prong outlet and the cord is fully plugged in. If the electrical system is built-in and no power cord is visible, replace or reset the household fuse or circuit breaker.

Microwave Functions

Some basic microwave operational steps may affect whether the microwave is heating. Open and close the microwave door, as the unit will not function with the door open, and push "Stop/Clear" to cancel any previous settings, such as the timer, which do not heat the microwave oven.

Setting the Microwave

Once the power to the microwave has been reset, or verified as working, and the microwave is ready to run, select a new cook cycle and press "Start" to see if the microwave begins to run and cook food as expected. Allow the food to cook for the alloted time and then open the microwave door and check to see if the food has cooked or heated. Choose a longer cooking time and restart the microwave if food is heating but is cooking slowly.

Repair

If all efforts to troubleshoot the function and power to the microwave still do not get the appliance heating food as expected, there may be a repair issue that needs to be addressed. Contact professional technician for advice.

Microwave activate but will not heat food all light and buttons work but will not heat up


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

You can many different issue's
  1. Blown fuse in HV transformer primary circuit or HV fuse (if used).
  2. Bad connections (particularly to magnetron filament).
  3. Open thermal protector or thermal fuse.
  4. Open HV capacitor, HV diode, HV transformer, or magnetron filament.
  5. Shorted HV diode, HV capacitor (will blow a fuse), or magnetron.
  6. Damaged protective VDR from filament to chassis (not commonly used).
  7. Defective HV relay (not commonly used).
Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair.

My ge profile spacemaker II microwave went dark, no lights of any kind and no sound or response when pressing any button. tried resetting the circuit breaker but no change


Did you check the internal fuse? Often when everything is dark the fuse that protects the microwave is blown. Take the old fuse to your local hardware store and they will have a replacement for you. Should cost less than $5.

Microwave wont heat


look at the $2.00 door safety interlock switch(s) before you replace the very expensive (and hard and dangerous) magnetron.

Microwave activates and sounds fine (no unusual noises) but nothing is heated.


You could have a number of problems in this unit BUT let me WARN you of the extremly high voltage inside this unit first!.. Theres a capacitor and a diode connected together that holds a charge that could be open , Theres a magnatron or the magnatron thermal cutouts that could have went bad. Theres a relay on the control board that could have went bad so therefor the control board could be bad. The power transformer for the Hi voltage could have went bad but not likely unless you seen or smelled alot of smoke or oder before it went bad. Unfortantly, these days a good microwave, to have fixed, is about or almost 3/4 the price of a new one. Without troubleshooting the unit with a multi-meter your really shooting in the dark with what part is bad as it could also be a combination of parts bad that I described. If you think its worth it, take the thing in for an estimate, but I would highly advise against you doing it unless your famillar with the dangers and the high voltage points. Good Luck
