Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Whirlpool WHKM-10 water cooler that will not cool water. You can set the temp low but the water and indicated temp stay at about 84F. Hot works great.

    Sounds logical but I am unable to find a parts source for this part so I cannot verify results.

Hello,

The problem is the temperature sensor/ switch contacts are shorted closed on the cooler part, they will need to be replace for you to have control over the unit and be able to regulate the cooler part.

Take care.

    I had a typo. It's a WHKM-40, but I would guess it's the same part failure. Thanks

Can't determine high or low on power control


put a cup of water in the cavity and set for 1 minute, after which time you can feel the temperature. Switch to the other power setting and repeat with a fresh cup of water. This will either be hotter than the first or much cooler. Most microwaves use 100% power for full and 30% power for defrost, with 50% usually being lower or medium power. Straight-forward physics. The more power the hotter the water becomes. Hope that helps.

Powers off immediately after starting


My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

Our new microwave heats the containers but not the food. Container is too hot to touch. Food "looks" hot, usually boiling - but food isn't even warm.


Check on the material the containers are made of. If they are not microwave friendly then they will cause problems.
Some materials are designed to "Roast" the contents by absorbing the energy.
Check with a Pyrex glass container and water. The glass should stay fairly cool.

I am unable to use the Bellagio water cooler now as the cold water dispenser is leaking. There is a constant drip so I had to remove the water bottle, then drain all the water from the reservoir. I have...


Go to www.super-electric.com and send them a message about your problem. They have parts. I can't tell you if they will help you or not, I have just emailed them today as well. I have both sides of my 1 year old water cooler leaking, model W074DRF11BQD. (from Zellers) I have hardwood floors and I would rather throw this unit away than risk water damage. If anyone is reading this and thinking of purchasing one of these Bellagio water coolers, spend your money elsewhere - THEY LEAK!. My husband is very handy and has just spent 2 hours on it with NO success. The parts are defective - this unit is NOT full of complex working parts. One plastic part causes pressure on the valve and causes a leak(s). After light usage and nothing damaging it, 8 months old one side went and the other side has been leaking for a couple of days and we are just coming up to a year. If anyone else had this problem and fixed it, I would love to hear the solution.

It probably requires a new heating element. Contact your supplier to get a price.

On whirlpool dishwasher on litle screen we get notification "F6", what should we do, what does it mean?


This is what it means:

F6. 6 Flashes. Water valve (WV1) is switched on but flow meter (FM) senses no impulses (less than 10 impulses in 10 secs) and the water indicator (WI) is at a low level
Water Valve Closed. Water inlet hose blocked.
Water inlet valve (WV1) defective. Flow meter (FM) defective (leads to FM failure)

The above info is pretty self explanatory but the bottom line is the dishwasher either is not filling fast enough or... is sensing that it is not filling fast enough. Check your inlet water line for flow by first turning off the power and water supply line then remove the line .... open the wall connection valve and check the flow. Also take a flashlight and small mirror if need be to check the hole of the inler to the water valve.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

My whirlpool microwave heats up the top cover / outer metal casing. It seems to get hotter and hotter, even though the food inside may not be all that hot. Eventually it may even stop running the...


If the cooling fan is not running, then that definitely needs to be addressed to prevent magnetron damage.

-.htmThere 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.

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

It might be useful to first do a standard heat test.

-.htmMICROWAVE HEATING POWER TEST

The following test will provide a suitably accurate measurement of the output power of any microwave oven. Variations or errors in performing this test will produce uncertain results. If the line voltage (from the electrical outlet) is low, the magnetron output will be correspondingly low.

Equipment needed:

- Microwave safe container with 1000 mL (1 Liter) gradation.

- Fahrenheit or centigrade thermometer

Procedure:

Pour exactly 1000 mL (1 Liter) of cool tap water into the container. Using the thermometer, stir the water, then measure and record the temperature. For accurate results the water should be about 60 degrees F (20 degrees C).

Place the container on the center of the oven cooking shelf (do not leave the thermometer in the container and remove any metal racks), and heat the water (at full power) for 63 seconds. Use the second hand of a watch, not the oven timer.

After the heating time is completed, immediately remove the container, stir the water, re-measure and record the temperature of the heated water.

Subtract the starting water temperature (step 2) from the ending water temperature (step 3) to obtain the temperature rise.

To determine the output power in watts, multiply the total temperature rise by a factor of 38.75 if you're using a Fahrenheit thermometer or 70 if you're using a centigrade thermometer.
