Question about Belling BIM60 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

My belling microwave oven will not heat up even though it still powers up. I bought it 3 years ago and is in perfect condition otherwise. A week before it stopped functioning, I accidentally left it on for 3 minutes at full power with nothing inside to heat. (I just wonder if this caused the present malfunction).

Leaving the unit on with nothing inside probably was the cause of the current failure. What happens is RF reverse flows into the magetron and causes the power diode on the capacitor to fail or the capacitor itself fails. This is not a difficult or expensive repair. IF by chance you attempt self repair make sure the unit is unplugged and that you ground the capacitor 3 times before prceeding with any testing.

You disconnect one end of the diode and read across the terminals. One direction it will read like a wire and the other it will read open. (Good) If it reads continuity in both directions it has failed. If it reads open in both directions it has failed.

Checking the capacitor you simply probe across the terminals with a meter watching for a jump on the meater EACH time the tests leads are REVERSED. No Jump leads reversed = bad capacitor.

I tried looking up parts for Belling in UK but was unsuccessful. You can get a replacement diode or capacitor from any appliance parts source. They are NOT brand specific. Just take your old part with you if you find one of them defective.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Everything is working, but no heat. lights come on, turntable turns, fans run, but no heat

Normally this would indicate that the diode in the power supply for the Magnetron (microwave radiation emitter) has failed. I would recommend that the unit be serviced by a professional in this area, or disposed of because of the following:

1 The power supply for Magnetron Tube the produces thousands of volts and can produce a lethal shock even though the machine is turned off and unplugged. Really, I'm not kidding.
2 Working on a Microwave Oven can expose you to high levels of Radiation which can immediately
Damage internal organs.

That said, there is another even better reason.
3 Microwave Ovens are now very inexpensive to replace.

Even though I personally know how to fix them, I can't be bothered.

I hope I have been of help
Happy New Year,
Best, Mark

Oven won't heat food

Bad Magnetron. Unfortunately, and especially on high power microwaves, magnetrons do die. They'll probably run you between 100 and 300 dollars to replace. If you believe that your microwave is within warranty(not likely), contact the manufacturer for repairs. Otherwise, it may just be cheaper to purchase a new microwave.

Sorry that this answer doesn't produce a happy result, but it's an unfortunate fault of microwaves as a whole.

Microwave less than 3 years old perfect order stopped heating last week

Check for the busted fuse in your microwave.
Only porcelain and glasswares can be placed
inside your microwave. Somebody could have
accidentally placed metalware inside, that will
make your fuse busted.

GE Microwave/Convection Oven - Door Glass Just Exploded!!!

This happened to us 3 weeks ago with our 3 year old Kitchenaid microwave. Several hours after its last use it just shattered. In doing research I discovered that this has also happend with GE microwaves, all 3 years old. The cause seems to have been a batch of defective glass supplied by a third party. Whirlpool was very quick to cover the cost of the replacement, even though our microwave was out of warrantee.

Dacor Microwave/Conv Oven DCM24S

Placing the bag on an inverted glass bowl or pyrex casserole dish worked!!!!!  For 2 years, I have cursed my Dacor microwave for its inability to make popcorn (burns a hole in the bag, bag stays flat, almost no kernels pop, etc...)  I read the last suggestion to use the glass plate and I am now sitting with a bowl full of perfectly popped popcorn - with only 1 kernel unpopped.  The metal tray in the microwave conducts too many waves through the bag I guess.
Thanks for the solution!
