Sounds like fuse may have blown..if light doesnt come on inside then that is possibly what is wrong..the fuse is inside the case and u have to take the outside off to get at it...make sure the power cord isnt plugged into the wall and do not touch anything else inside the unit ..there is a big capacitor inside that can give a very very bad shock....or the logic board is not good..if that is the case then it is not worth repairing

While microwaving it suddenly stopped working. No more display. Oven was made in 1996. It had been working without a light for several years.


yes im sure it doesn't need an interior light to work, but I would say 4 sure the only way id spend money on a repair of any appliance made in 96 (20 years old) is if it was part of a set that matched everything in the area , even then id think ******* it

LG Microwave ran empty for 20 minutes


I recommend you have a service man come in because it is more than a fuse, the keypad control board will need to be checked along with the rest of the system.

I have GE Profile microwave model PVM1870SM1SS and last week while running, suddently it shut off. There is no power, display buttons and stopped running. Please advise.


From the description a major part has failed, the magnetron is suspect because it suddenly shut down in cycle, if the unit is less than 7 years old it probably has a inverter board and tends to fail, also there is the possibility the keypad control board has stopped working. The microwave in my opinion is worth getting checked out and repaired, but it will be expensive.

My model nn-p295wf microwave stopped working ,all power just stopped, about a year ago. I took it to a repair shop and they replaced the DIODE and the fuse, then it worked again. Afew weeks ago it happened...


Replace the magnetron, safety fuse and diode as a set and check the door interlock switches.
That should get it working for another year or so.
Don't forget microwave mains fuses are special sand filled and semisurge type.

GE microwv-doesn't heat, strong electrical smell, all else ok


The most common problem would be your magnetron. Check your purchase date, magnetron's usually have a five year warranty. Not a part I recomend trying to fix yourself (high voltage ).

Microwave JE1650AA 002 Light, timer, panel display and beeper all work but the microwave nor the turntable work.


Hi worzelh,

When a microwave suddenly stops heating food, but still appears to run (the control electronics and light are usually a separate circuit), it's usually a defective/dead magnetron.

The turntable _may_ or may not be on the same circuit as the magnetron, that's hard to say without a wiring diagram or schematic.

Prices for replacement/repair will vary, you will need to find out what that service costs in your area before having enough information to decide on repair or replacement. If you tell the repairer that you suspect the magnetron, they should be able to quote you a fairly accurate estimate.

When my first microwave lost it's magnetron (~20 yrs ago), it was 5 years old at the time, and the cost of buying a new oven was only a little more than the repair - but I had the repair done anyhow. Since then, we've replaced the entire oven instead (twice). Newer ones may have more power/less energy wastage, etc.

If I can be of further assistance, or if you have questions about any of my response(s), please let me know before rating me.

If this solves the issue, please rate it accordingly. My goal is to earn a "FixYa" rating from everyone I help.

Thanks for using Fixya.com,

Jon

Samsung Microwave repair


This would be the turntable coupler, and you can get it here. The best way is to search by model number. If by chance you don't find it, call them at the number on their site.

You need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven. In some brands, you have to cut the motor cover off with snips, then use a screw when reassembling it.

Panasonic NN- A712 combination Microwave 1000w - Switches off after 20 seconds


The 22 seconds is the giveaway.

In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer.

GE Microwave quit


Hats off to your 20 year old GE machine. That is the the longest lasting microwave I have heard of. When they finally go out, they are done, there is nothing left to even do with them. Most of the parts are obsolete. However you might find a appliance store that still has one similiar to yours in their backroom that they use for spare parts for those like you who might need it. You might take it to them to see if it is worth repair.

I can say this, after 20 long years, the machine will cost more to fix, and for what you will spend on repair, you can buy a different one that can also be energy effiecient.
