Question about Microwave Ovens

The temperature alarm keeps going off at random times during the day or night for no apparent reason. It is driving me mad! My appliance is ten years old but apart from this works perfectly. Can the alarm be disconnected?

Yes , you can disconnect / disarm the alarm. First of all let us try to see to the fault. Carefully open the covers after discconnection of the unit. Look within for signs of dirts or insects. Use a good air cleanerfor blowing out any dustt. Next check on all connectors on the main PCB, remove and plug into. If you trace there is an alarm fitted from the Main PCB. In even the fault does not clearr up with our little service tip, the you can disconnect the alarm. If there was any signs of insect/ coakroaches within, you must take the main PCB, wash with petrol and use a hair dryer to clear .Hope my advice works out. Good day

Microwave comes on by itself in middle of night


This absolutely is a fire hazard.

Until it is fixed, you are right to either unplug it or simply leave the door open when you;re not using it.

You have a failed membrane keypad.

If you would like to have us to do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Neff microwave combination oven


no solution sorry but we also have a Neff mw/combi oven which keeps blowing for no apparent reason, the Neff repair man has looked at it 4 times and practically replaced every component -power module, operating module,relay board, door switches but it`s just gone again! The model is a H5972N0GB/01 and it is approx 3 yrs old, no problem for the first 2 years .Time to write to Neff -is yours the same model?

Microwave problem


A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open.

When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

If it's random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or fuse holder.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
