SOURCE: My Russell Hobbs microwave will not generate heat

If everything else is normal, the trouble may be a failed magnetron tube (the microwave source), problems on the control circuit board, or parts in the tube power circuit that are bad. It's also possible a door switch can be at fault, but this usually keeps something else (fan, turntable or light, most often) from running as well.

Microwave servicing is best left to professionals. There are potentially deadly voltages present, and a chance of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done correctly. Take the oven to a shop for an estimate, or just consider replacing it if it isn't a built-in, an over the range unit or a high-end countertop model.

I was given a Russell hobbs microwave combi Ct/la30 without an instruction manual and I've just discovered the microwave has stopped heating. It sounds as if working. Thanks in advance


There are multiple possible causes for the problem. Here's a partial list: magnetron, high voltage capacitor, high voltage rectifier, power relay, inverter board (if an inverter oven), thermistor on magnetron (if so equipped), and on some units, a door switch.

I have a Russell Hobbs RHM2018 microwave oven with grill and the turntable will not stop going round and the light stays on until I unplug it? Once plugged back in it carries on in the same way? If I


The switch for the turntable does not disengage anymore. Could be a relais, could be an electronic switch. When opening the door, a second switch, in series with the other one, connected to the turntable motor disengages, stopping the motor. The light is switched on, because you opened the microwave. Perhaps you never noticed this, but it is the normal way that should work.

Russell Hobbs Microwave ,it heats the food but it does not turn round.


If the oven is STILL heating, but the carousel isn't turning, the symptoms you describe are commonly attributed to a turntable motor that has worn out and may need to be replaced. The motor is attached to the center plastic piece (called a turntable shaft, turntable ring or coupler) under the middle of the glass tray. The following link explains how to access and replace the motor:

This is a very simple repair, that usually is not expensive. The price will be determined by the model and manufacturer. This repair can also be performed on an over the range model microwave oven WITHOUT uninstalling it.

You can refer to any of the following websites for comparison:

searspartsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

The first three sites listed have helpful exploded view diagrams to assist you with locating and properly identifying the part(s) you may need.

The average price for a motor is usually about $25 to $45 (U.S. Dollars). If your model number is not listed at all the sites, you may also try these sites that carry the Russell Hobbs brand parts:
http://www.russell-hobbs.com/parts.shtml http://www.directpartsandproducts.com/index.php NOTE: Even though the carousel may not be turning, you can still use the microwave while awaiting parts. You will need to physically rotate whatever you are heating about midway through the cook time to ensure even heating. Early model microwave ovens were not equipped with a rotating carousel and this was the common procedure.
