Chances are the thermostat or thermal cutout that protects the magnetron is such cases is blown.

Let's just hope it did its job and prevented the magnetron from being destroyed by running empty.

We would need to know your brand and model number to give you more specific help, but FixYa's Web site is currently not notifying us experts when replies to our Clarification Requests are posted.

So you will need to make a new post with your brand, model, (country if not USA) and specific symptoms.

How do you use the kitchen timer and cook at the same time?


If you have the kitchen timer set for instance for 10 minutes and it is counting down, and then you want to reheat you coffee for 2 minutes. You would hit either time cook or reheat button and enter 2 minutes ten hit start. The microwave will heat your coffee and show the 2 minute countdown for that. When done it will revert back to what is left on the 10 minute kitchen timer without missing a beat on most microwaves.

Push one minute timer, ligh comes on and countdown begins, table does not turn, fan does not run and no heat


That's a bad bottom door switch, or maybe its mount is bad.

Tappan TMV151FS over range microwave starts to work and then dies


Never run the microwave without a load (something to heat)!!! That kills the microwave generating parts.

Sounds like a 'thermal' protect switch is activating after running. Make sure that (if the unit is mounted in a cabinet) that there is sufficient space around the unit for proper air flow and that nothing is blocking the vents. Try setting it on a counter top and heat something. If it works properly and doesn't shut off, the venting space is the problem. You may have to have the cabinet that it sits in redesigned for more clearance.

Kenmore 401.8008700 ran 10 minutes thought I'd set on timer


It could be the fuse. You will also need to check the condition and alignment of the door switches.

Went completely dead


I would bet that instead of the kitchen timer's being on, the oven was running on high but empty for that forty minutes.

This would have led to overheating, which would have blown the thermostat on the magnetron.

Hopefully the thermostat did its job protecting the magnetron from damage, but 40 minutes running empty is pretty scary...

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

Microwave running although not turned on


Thought I had answered this, but this is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or possibly a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.
