Question about Amana LD10 1000 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Stopped heating Amana Radarange bought in 1997, "built-in" model #RSW 669T. Recently stopped heating. Also, a few years ago the turn table stopped rotating, but we kept using, as we like it. Wonder what happened to the heat, and if worth repairing a 13 year old microwave...hard to fit the space exactly with a new one, you know how that goes. Thanks so much

The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be bad or the circuitry to the magnetron may have burned out. Basically my advice is that if you have no electrical expertise, it isn't worth fixing. The magnetron if bad, costs almost as much as a new microwave. If you open it up (make sure it has been unplugged for a few hours and don't seen any obvious burnt parts, then most likely the magnetron is done and a new microwave is the way to go.

Let me know how this works out for you.

I have an amana radarange microwave that just stopped working. Can it be reset?


Microwave ovens do not have "resets". There probably has been a component failure.

My microwave over does not shut off


I'm sorry, I don't have an answer, but my radarange also began this odd behavior about a month ago... my son is a mechanic has almost forbade me to use it, stating he gets a headache everytime he opens it.... Once the range stops cooking, I open the microwave to get the food out, and the range immediately turns back on, lights on, and carousel turning! I have NO IDEA if the microwaves are engaged at this point???!!! But suppose I need to find out ASAP!

After 5 years of service, there could have been a magnetron failure but the door interlock (latch) could have failed which would acccount for the turntable failure.

We had a lighting storm a few days ago and now my Amana radarange will not do anything, can this be as simple as a fuze? and if so can that be replaced without removing from the wall? thanks, Dean


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Yes it could certainly be the fuse and that is where i would first check and if it checks out good than you may have a fried controle board or even fried wires inside the microwave
You may even have a bad power inverter also ok
Sometimes the boards can be more expensive than the unit costs you originally so be wise to this ok
keep me posted on what you have found
best regards Mike

My Amana Radarange over the stove microwave started to omit a "burnt rubber" smell and stopped defrosting or heating anything all of a sudden. Model #MVH15W. Still works otherwise, lights on...


You're describing a common smell that goes along with a magnetron tube that has failed. The magnetron tube makes the microwaves, and will eventually fail if you keep a microwave long enough. They can fail in a couple of different ways, and one is to short out accompanied by that burning smell. It's probably not worth trying to repair your oven because of its age. I don't believe the magnetron is available any longer. If it is, it will be costly, and replacing the tube is best left to a professional because of safety concerns. Your most economical choice would be to replace the oven.

Are microwave safe egg poachers doing damage to microwave?


you are not supposed to have any metal in the microwaves for cooking something , as why the other two quit , that is probably why they quit so soon
there is some more exspensive microwaves that can work even when metal is used inside( but these are special types of microwves)

Mwave made loud buzzing noise then didn't heat up anymore


When there's a loud buzz like that, it does not heat, and does not blow the fuse, it is usually a defective magnetron. Did it sound something like someone making a "gurgling" sound into a coffee cup? I think this has a a one-year warranty, with n five-year warranty covering the magnetron.
