Could be the Magnatron, Diode, HV Cap or Transfomer, some also have a high voltage fuse that blow. Unless you really are confident playing with Very High Voltages, and have a meter capable of 5000v, I dont recommend you repair yourself as a microwave will happily electrocute you. Also if the discharge resistor has burnt out on the cap (assuming it was fitted on your model) the capacitor can store enough power to kill you even when the unit is unplugged so you must discharge the cap before playing with anything else to be safe.

My Sanyo microwave oven (model: EM-G4753) isn't heating my food. Everything else works, the fan, the lights. The microwave turns and sounds like everything is working but the food won't get hot. It is only...




It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

OK above is a service manual, this should get you into the "ball park" I have given you also a DIY repair of microwaves.
Usually, the magnetron, or High Power Diode, is what fails. Anyway perform the troubleshooting steps, and you should be able to sort it out.
BE CAREFUL. Microwaves are LETHAL.

Food does not heat up


well the fuse has very little to do with the process of heating the food. It merely completes a circuit between the wall and the power supplky of the unit.

Your problem may be that the Magnatron is dead ( expensive repair) or that the fail safe has engaged, whereupon the unit has overheated because of poor airflow and has invoked the isolator switch.

If this is so it will start when it has cooled ( 2-3hrs) Make sure thyere is a good airflow around the cabinet. Those built intpo cupboard hutches often fail from overheating.

M/waves can be picked up cheaply from pawn shops now rather than repairing. People trade up and sell ofd their perfectly good oloder modles. You can pick up a good one with 30n day warranty ( prechecked) FOR about $100.00. Whcih is a lot less than a new Magnatron.

Sanyo Microwave EM-G4775 - doesn't heat up......


It's probably a loose connection at the magnetron or a bad magnetron.

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.

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

Some manufacturers (in the US anyway) will send you the magnetron to do it yourself. If nothing else, you can save about $75US by taking it to the shop yourself.

Apparently you're in the UK, judging by the model number.
