If it makes a loud humming sound it is something in the high voltage circuit. it could also be a bad microswitch in the door latch assembly

My smeg microwave will not heat the food ...... possible causes


If everything else is working but it won't heat the food, the causes are the magnetron "common failure" or the high voltage capacitor and diode can be a factor, the three work together to heat the food. Depending on the nature of repair it can be close to the cost of a new microwave oven.

Smeg sa35mx microwave vibration noise when in use


The vibration can be due to either the transformer which is getting loaded when the magnetron is ON or it can be the vibration of the turn table - possible fault in the drive mechanism or irregular movement. If this is the transformer check the voltage and if it is heating up then it can be faulty , if not the mountings of the transformer can be tightened.
Also the turntable movement drive can be reset.

SMEG SA35MX no longer heating. Light, fan & timer all still working but no heat. Approx 2 years old. Is there a fuse or other component I can replace myself ?


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system down for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Does not heat food.


Dont have many smegs where i am, but smeg is a decent unit, so i would think if there is no heat, look for a reset button (over temp. protection). possibly located at the back where the elements are wired.

I do not know how to access and change the light in a standard smeg microwave, model number SA35MX Note: ther is no instructions in the operating instruction booklet for the microwave.


Manufacturers used to include access panels in the rear or side so you could easily change the bulb. That exposed the customer to line voltages, and that posed a real liability threat, so they stopped using them.

You now must generally remove the outer cover to replace the bulb.

In many over-the-range models, that can mean having to take the oven down from the wall! For safety's sake, that should be a two-person job and it's really helpful if you have your original installation instructions to do this.

Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin as the oils will shorten the bulb life.
