MICROWAVE WON'T HEAT


HELLO.


If you are sure that your microwave is powered on but not heating.then you are having element fault with your microwave.this is the solution below,

Things you will need
  • Oven Heating Elements
  • Screwdriver Sets
    1 Turn off the power to the microwave at the breaker box.
2 Take out the screws holding the element bracket in place. These will be on the back wall of the microwave, or sometimes on the top.
3 Pull the element toward you a little bit until you see the wires behind it.
4 Unscrew the leads and take the bad element out.
5 Hold the new element up while you attach the wires to it. Don't stretch the wires any more than you have to.
6 Line up the element while tucking the wires back in. Be sure not to pinch the wires between the bracket and the back wall.
7 Fasten the brackets, making sure they're tight.
8 Restore power to the appliance.
Thanks.

The white rectangle on the top of the inside of the microwave has a hole burned in it. What does that mean?


The waves won't be spread like they should, with the area right below the hole getting way more energy than the rest of the food. The new part will be around $22. I had to break the old part in getting it off. The new part will show you how it is attached and how to install it. The most substantial part goes in the back (the part that acts like a hinge), and the snap-in area goes in the front. It pops right in and the energy once again flows all over the microwave. I got the idea that the cover acted as a diffuser. Also, I was told the reason this happened is because whatever was being heated didn't have enough moisture in it, therefore it was as if the microwave were being run with nothing in it, and the wave were directed back to the cover instead of being absorbed. I was instructed to next time put a cup of water in with whatever I was heating at the time of the problem.

Oven turns on, lights up, turntable works, whole thing makes noise but does not heat. Is there some sort of internal fuse - or is it just broken? Is it something I can fix? Is it worth it?


if everything but the heat works most likely you have a bad magnetron it is repairable ,but can get up there in cost as far as part cost... the magnetron is one of the main componets of the microwave.... you have to take cabinetry off to replace.
parts can be ordered from www.sears.com then hit the parts direct link on the top of page
you will have to type in your model number and a parts diagram willl appear... it is possible the thermal fuse located on the magnetron has failed which can be accessed behind the control panel.... it is about the size of a quarter and has 2 wires attached to it... unplug unit and test contuinity and it should be closed... hope this helps out...good luck to you...

Microwave won't heat, error message comes out"error sensor"


The moisture sensor has failed.

The part is located on the top of the unit in back left corner. To get to it you will have to take the microwave oven down and disassemble it, There are about 8 screws on the bottom, 9 on the back and 4 on top that have to come off and then the wrapper will come off. The sensor is the round metal disk with wires attached inside a metal cable that run over to the control. The part runs about $125.00

Chefmate microwave will not heat up anything


A microwave not heating up is caused by one or more of the following -

1) Failed controller board (unlikely if you are getting a clock readout and you can get the various functions to work, just no heat)
2) Failed door switch
3) Failed thermal fuse, when used
4) Blown power fuse that is dedicated to the microwave circuit
5) Bad diode
6) Bad capacitor
7) Bad magnetron
8) Bad transformer

Door switches insure the microwave circuit will not engage when the door is open. Slamming the door of the microwave is hard on the switch.

The thermal due is wired into the microwave harness, and is a melting allow type, based on heat buildup within the oven. Always replace with a fuse of the same thermal rating.

The power fuse is a special type and should only be replaced with that same type and rating. It is easily tested.

The diode is a relatively inexpensive part, and is not easily tested. If a grumble is heard coming from electrical area of the unit, then the diode could be shorted.

A shorted capacitor will blow the fuse immediately. And open capacitor will cause a "no heat" condition.

A bad magnetron will also cause a low level hum or grumble from the transformer. But is may also cause no other identifiable symptom of failure.

A bad transformer will exhibit a grumble or hum, and may or may not blow the fuse. But be careful here, the secondary of the transformer produces very high voltages, up to 2.5Kv. Few people own a meter capable of measuring such voltages.

Service and repair of microwave ovens is dangerous work. If you don't know what your doing, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SERVICE A UNIT WITHOUT INSTRUCTION.

Samsung Microwave Oven


Chances are you have a magnetron failing.

It's about time for the keypad to be going too, so unless it's a convection type or you;re really attached to it, it may time to retire it.

If you want to check into parts / pricing, see: http://www.samsungparts.com/search/search.asp

Microwave arced, wont heat now


I'm assuming that it doesn't microwave either. If it does...then the heater is bad. Sears parts sells them. Second guess is a blown fuse or thermosensor. Inside the pad housing, locate the internal fuse and replace it if blown. The thermosensor is a black plastic bit about the diameter of a dime and 3/8 inch thick and clamped to the side of the unit inside the control area. Test it for continuity and replace if open. If not either of these, then you have power supply issues or control panel problems. My bet: the heater blew out. Often, this is caused when you heat greasy foods.

Not heating the food


sam..vane...two different problems.

Sam...find out if you've got power in the outlet you're using. If not, you've got to check to see if you've got a blown fuse in the unit. Also ...see below.

vane...chances are you have a power issue or the thermosensor which is used for a safety has blown. It is the size of a dime and 3/8 inch thick...black...two wires. You'll probably find it has opened. Found attached inside the control area to the side of the microwave heating area.
