Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

I have a Swan SR5170W which I bought last year, but have mislaid the manual. Upon now defrosting it for the first time I have found a dial and a switch in the top. The dial shows numbers 1-4 and the switch has an 0 and a - marks on it currently on o (which I take to be an "off" position What is the switch for> The freezer dial has been on 3 and has worked fine for the last year but am wondering what the switch does!!

SOURCE: Kenwood microwave (KEN GJ/SS25) heating doesn't work but grill works

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: I have an Electrolux High Speed Oven E30SO75FPS that's 3 years old and the Magnetron has failed for the 3rd time. What can be causing this?

Is the internal cooling fan working?

Are the ducts and vents clear?

Problems with any of those can result in overheating, which destroys magnetrons.

I have seen high voltage rectifier diodes interact with magnetron in funny ways. I'd replace the diode, too.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

I recommend that you bookmark that link to your favorites.

Finally, baking potatoes and making popcorn really give the magnetron a workout.

You should put about 1/2 cup of water in the rear corner of the microwave when cooking those foods.

It helps "preload" the oven to prevent execessive microwave energy reflection back to the magnetron.

On most brands, you do with key sequence like this:

Cook Time > 1 > 0 > 0 > Defrost > 3 > Start

I have a Teka A-FCI340 fridge/freezer. The fridge is too cold and freezes items put into it. No matter how I turn the temperature control dial it still seems to be too cold.


I had the exact same problem with the same model and mine was just 3 years old. My problems started when I defrosted the freezer. I spent 75gbp on an engineer who told me that I had probably 'spooked' the fridge when I defrosted the freezer, that this particular model of fridge wasn't designed to last longer than 2 years.

I would recommend you check the door is shutting properly (check the screws at the top, it might be just slightly out of alignment).... I turned the whole unit off for over 2 days to allow absolutely everything to defrost (both inside and on the back of it)... within 30 minutes of turning it on, the back of my fridge was already frosted over.

Engineer told me not to waste money calling them out again, and to buy another one...
