There will be one wire that will go to two and only two points: From the high voltage tap on the high voltage transformer to one terminal of the capacitor. There will be nothing else connected at either point of that wire.

The other terminal of the capacitor will have two or three wires connected to it. It will go to the FA terminal of the magnetron and to the non-ground side of the high voltage rectifier diode.

My Electrolux above oven convection microwave chimes are not working. Solution?


Hello friend, thank you for your post!

I understand that the chimes on your oven and microwave are not working. I would be happy to help you locate any additional information regarding the chimes. In order to assist you further I would need to have your model number. You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the inside wall of your microwave or on the door frame. Once I have that information I would be happy to assist you. -Matt

Whirlpool microwave fuse has blown multiple times


It depends on which fuse and when it blows. Wish you had mentioned that.

But usually it's a defective door switch or door switch mount.

If the fuse blows at random times while it's cooking, it may just be a loose fuse holder. Those have to be replaced due to metal fatigue, not just squeezed tight with pliers.

If it blows as soon as you hit "Start" to begin cooking, you have a shorting high voltage capacitor.

If it blows when you open or close the door, you have a loose or defective door switch or latch.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

E305075FPSA HighSpeed Eletrolux the door appears to not be closing tight.


No! this not normal, I'am concerned about microwave leakage, and a 1/8 gap is to much, should be tight against the seal "major safety factor" the door is out of alignment or the bottom latch is not secure "to much play" I recommend a pro simply because he needs test for leakage when the door is properly fixed.

Could a blown fuse cause a microwave to not heat, fan not turn and turnable not rotate


Not likely. More likely it's a bad door switch or door switch mount.

On Sharps and those made by Sharp (Dacor, Wolf, Viking, Electrolux, etc.) it's usually the bottom door switch.

See this handy help file on door switches.

If you need further help, please reply back or post a new help request which includes your full model number and the symptoms you mentioned above.

Sound like a magnetron go to bad; here are the steps we took to replace it

Warning: You are not an electrician or repairman, following steps are from my experience. You should be careful while handling capacitor and other parts.

Unplug Microwave at least few hours before
Remove Microwave from above oven range by somebody holding Microwave from ground unscrew the screws from cabinet
Remove top cover of Microwave
Make sure to keep screws correctly in a place you remember what goes where
Make sure capacitor is discharged, GE manual inside Microwave says capacitor will discharge within 30 seconds once it is off. As a precaution check the voltage in capacitor to make sure there is no electricity
Remove other panels around magnetron part
You need to remove lot of connecting wires, should be careful to note down what goes where
If possible take digital photos to refer back when you put everything back together
You may need to remove transformer to easily remove and replace Magnetron. If you can't remove Magnetron easily then remove bottom panel of the Microwave and remove transformer
Now it should be easy to remove magnetron
Replace new magnetron and screw it. We had to put one outside part from old magnetron to new one because new one was missing that. Check to make sure both old and new one are exactly the same
Make sure put all wires properly back
Now put transformer back and screw it
Put capacitor panel in place and screw it
This might be a good time to test the Microwave to make sure it works fine now
Now cover the top panels and start to screw everything
Once everything assembled put the Microwave back above range put screws from top

Won't heat any foods.


you have a problem with your magnetron tube, and when the magnetron tube goes bad, the diode almost always goes out with it. you should be able to order a replacement tube from your manufacturers website, if you cant let me know and ill try to help you more.

here are the steps to replace the magnetron tube, if you want to do it yourself that is. if you have a professional do it, it can be pretty costly.
  1. Unplug Microwave at least few hours before
  2. Remove Microwave from above oven range by somebody holding Microwave from ground unscrew the screws from cabinet
  3. Remove top cover of Microwave
  4. Make sure to keep screws correctly in a place you remember what goes where
  5. Make sure capacitor is discharged, GE manual inside Microwave says capacitor will discharge within 30 seconds once it is off. As a precaution check the voltage in capacitor to make sure there is no electricity
  6. Remove other panels around magnetron part
  7. You need to remove lot of connecting wires, should be careful to note down what goes where
  8. If possible take digital photos to refer back when you put everything back together
  9. You may need to remove transformer to easily remove and replace Magnetron. If you can't remove Magnetron easily then remove bottom panel of the Microwave and remove transformer
  10. Now it should be easy to remove magnetron
  11. Replace new magnetron and screw it. We had to put one outside part from old magnetron to new one because new one was missing that. Check to make sure both old and new one are exactly the same
  12. Make sure put all wires properly back
  13. Now put transformer back and screw it
  14. Put capacitor panel in place and screw it
  15. This might be a good time to test the Microwave to make sure it works fine now
  16. Now cover the top panels and start to screw everything
  17. Once everything assembled put the Microwave back above range put screws from top

I have a GE Spacemaker Microwave, Model # JVM165OCB006 Serial # TF900232B Manufactured 10/2003. Runs,turntable,light,timer etc but will not heat. Is it worth fixing?


it is mostly fault of magnetron tube inside Microwave. ge has a 10 year warrenty on this part and they can fix it for you for 200$ OR you can order the part from the web and install it yourself. when the magnetron goes out, the diode almost always goes out too so you'll need another of those too. so if you dont want to replace these then buy a new one if not the the steps to repairing are:

  1. Unplug Microwave at least few hours before
  2. Remove Microwave from above oven range by somebody holding Microwave from ground unscrew the screws from cabinet
  3. Remove top cover of Microwave
  4. Make sure to keep screws correctly in a place you remember what goes where

I have a GE Spacemaker and it is about 9 yrs. old. Sometines it heats; other times it doesn't. I change settings and sometimes that works. Is this something that can be repaired or is this a sign I need...


When the microwave is not heating, that means the magnetron is not working. This is what provides the heat to the microwave. I do believe the magnetron has a 10 year warranty.

If you wish to replace it, here is how:

  1. Unplug Microwave at least few hours before
  2. Remove Microwave from above oven range by somebody holding Microwave from ground unscrew the screws from cabinet
  3. Remove top cover of Microwave
  4. Make sure to keep screws correctly in a place you remember what goes where

hello,
this is a simple function that you should be able to carry out your self
from the statement above this means that your oven maize have disconnect from the element position i.e the wire have been disconnected from the heater

what you need to do is that unscrew your microwave trace the wire to the heater you will surely fine were the wire is been disconnected from the heater
then you have to huck up the wire back to the element (heater) the wire mention above will be in red and others can be in different color

Electrolux Microwave EMS 2487x not heating


If it is working but not heating, then test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.If turntable is not running check also the door switch.

The diodeand capacitors can be tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenif power is off.Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

You can also order from MicrowaveSvc , they also provide parts.
