Please contact your home insurance to have the problem logged as a failure of the microwave. The insurance company will most likely help you with the smoke damage to the house and will contact the manufacturer to get their money back... there might be an issue with the manufacturing of these appliances.

Assuming that the internal cooling fan was working properly, it may be as simple as a failed magnetron thermal cutout.

I don't have an exploded view on this one, and the supplier's part list is not detailed properly, so you would have to remove the magnetron thermal cutout and look for the numbers on it, either 145 or 150.

See:
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt

Then here would be the part numbers:

RTHM-A080WRE0 Thermal Cut Out 145 Degree c
RTHM-A085WRE0 Thermal Cut-out 150'C

You can order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

You should also check the 20A ceramic fuse. Fuses can be had locally in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.

If you need more help, please replay back. Otherwise...

How do I freeze cooked mashed potatoes?


Place them in a plastic container, close it, label and let go. I've never tried freezing mashed potatoes so can't testify as to how it holds up. But this is basically how I freeze everything else that comes my way.

We are getting an error code of 5E. Microwave automatically turns on to bake a potato.


"SE " means your membrane keypad is shorting. And it is specifically the baked potato key that's shorting.

If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking. Better still, unplug it and do not use it.

We would need the model number in order to provide you with free assistance.

It is usually found on a tag located inside the cooking cavity or around the door frame or controller frame.

Since FixYa is still not notifying us when you respond to clarification requests, you will have to post a new help request with your model number and symptoms / questions or contact us here for free assistance.

if out of warranty you can try a simple "fix" . some microwaves are made with a simple fuse on the inside of casing- should be able to remove cover with 4-6 screws and then locate fuse- DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE! If in doubt replace the whole thing.

PS- if dusty inside ,use canned air(for computers or cameras)

The door switches are slightly out of alignment. If you run the microwave and shift the door up or down, the micro might begin working..
The control panel must be removed and the door switches adjusted. I would not suggest you doing this yourself, as it may affect the microwave leakage through the door gap.

Potato caught fire during cooking. Microwave has


Hello, inside most microwaves, there is a thermal fuse, that if something in the cooking cavity is on fire, it will melt the thermal fuse, if it gets hot enough, thus breaking the power to the unit shutting it off. This sounds like what has happened to yours, simply replacing it will correct the problem. It is usually located near a cavity exhaust point. If you aren't comfortable doing this, as it requires removing the outer cover, while unplugged, and locating/replacing it, take it to a appliance service co. This will of course cost more, if you do it yourself, make sure you provide all of your make/model/serial/anything else, that will identify your unit, and call/go online to a parts retailer, and you should be able to get it done fairly cheap.

Hope this helps, and thank you.
