Question about Microwave Ovens
My Microwave works Great sometimes, But to often when I try to heat something up, no matter what setting or time I use the Microwave does not come on. The Light works,turntable spins, timer counts, but no noise or heating.
Ok i just opened mine up on counter and found that the white wire on the high voltage transformer had been loose and melted so i put a new female spade connector on and it works fine. i suspect that from a year of use and humm from transformer had loosen it and gotten hot thus loosing connection and getting dirty causing it to overheat and burn off plastic sheilding. easy fix!!!

The high voltage transformer connector is a defect in these microwave oven models. I do not recommend them. I purchaed on last year , my husband has changed and repaired the connctors (white wire on the high voltage transformer ) need to open the microwave to find this. It's been replaced at least 5 times in the past year. It burns, overheats which makes the microwave oven shut down completely.

Every thing works, but no heating and no noise. I am happy you had noticed that there was a difference in the "Noise". Some describe it as a vibration you can feel in the cabinet. The "Noise" is only present when the High Voltage Transformer is engaged. The "Noise" is a low Humm which The High Voltage Transformer emits. Without The High Voltage the unit will not Heat.
BECAUSE you say it heats Sometimes. I suspect a LOOSE CONNECTION between the Low Voltage (115v) and the Primary of The High Voltage Transformer. Could be a Solder Connection, or just a Loose Wire. Loose, not Open. If it were OPEN it would not "Cook" at anytime.
