Question about Microwave Ovens

Plastic parts going bad

I have a troy built tiller last year I noticed the gas tank was cracked but not leaking gas . This year I was getting ready to start tilling when I observed the gas cap was split and the gas tank had leaked out all the gas. Was wondering if there was a recall on these items also if not where to get replacement parts.

Not sure how this landed under 'Microwave Ovens,' but . . .

I have often had good luck with this (unlikely looking) website:

I have a Monier crock pot which is approx. 30 years old and still working well but the plastic lid has a crack in it. Is it possible to obtain a new lid


Contact Monier, they may have a replacement.
If not take the plastic lid with you and go shopping, look for glass lids on pots and pans that matches the shape of your plastic lid.

Microwave running like normal but not heating food?


A part called the magnetron tube makes the microwaves, and either the tube has gone bad or it's not getting power for some reason. If you noticed any strange sounds, sparking or funny smells before the oven quit heating, it's safe to assume the magnetron is bad. But they can also go bad without being obvious about it.

It's also possible that there's something wrong with the control board or connections to it so it's not switching on the magnetron power. In some brands and models, door switches and safety thermostats may cause problems.

If this is a basic counter-top oven, you probably should just replace it. They're so inexpensive now that it will probably be half the cost just to get an estimate. And if it is a bad magnetron, the repair would certainly exceed replacement cost. For a high-end oven or built-in model, it might be worth getting the estimate and then deciding whether to fix or replace.

Hope this helps! Thanks for using Fixya.

Interior light always on Ge advantium 120


I bet by now your microwave is no longer working....did the bottom or top "hook" finally break off? I found that mine had cracked and started coming loose and so when it closed it was no placing enough pressure on the internal safety switch that tells the oven the door is shut. I was able to use a sturdy plastic glue to solve the problem but finally after about 2 years of fixing it I can no longer get it to bond. Now, I'm looking for a new part. Who makes a product this expensive with plastic parts!!?!??!?!? So frustrating.

Vent cover does not close


I had the same problem. It was the plastic that holds the folding vent cover, it cracked. I didn't do anything about it and just let it go. Mistake. Last night it broke off completely, on both sides! So now I am looking at a much bigger project to try to glue/build the darn thing. I suggest you get up there with a flash light when it is open and see if there is any sign of the plastic cracking. If so, take out the two screws on the top and that will let you pull your vent cover off completley and you might be able to glue the plastic and reenforce any weak areas. I have found many posts about this problem on line and sounds like GE charges about $400 to fit it (more than a new one!) Good luck!

Plate doesn't spin on mw8102ss


There is a motor underneath the oven that turns the plastic coupling the plate fits over. Either the motor has gone bad or the plastic coupling has cracked where it fits over the motor shaft. According to the Sears parts website (www.searspartsdirect.com), the plastic coupling (Emerson part # M0R0688) has been discontinued with no replacement. The motor is part # M0S1033 at $36.99.

You can continue using the oven even if the plate doesn't turn, but you have to occasionally open the oven and turn the food yourself to aid in even cooking.

Turntable won't rotate


This would be the turntable coupler. You would have to loosen or remove the motor screws to get the new on in.

Broken Handle


On almost any microwave oven door if you open the door,on the inside part of the door,theres a square plate thats plastic that is a one piece unit that goes all the way around the edge of the door . That held on by little plastic clips that are molded right on the suround and easy to break, so take a small screw driver(of course the ovens unplugged by now) and start at one end and start prying it out inch by inch. Being care full not to crack it. If yop do crack it, you must replace it, but its not that expensive. Once you have off the cover surround, you will see the screws that hold on the handle. If you need help getting the part go to http://www.repairclinic.com as even if its not listed get the phone # and call them and they will assist you. Good Luck
