2 slices of bread wrapped in paper towel microwave set on defrost set 35 seconds caught fire


Microwaves work by friction. They blast water molecules in the food so they move fast, just like rubbing your hands together makes them hot. Some types of microwave in defrost mode actually apply FULL POWER for a short period of time so to make the product warm to the touch. This heat then penetrates down to the core of the food, ensuring full defrost. In your case the heat was sufficient enough to heat the dry paper towel to set it on fire.
Bread is better defrosted on the low power setting as sliced bread is very thin. Items should only be defrosted on the defrost setting that are thick and need to be completely defrosted on the inside. Remember microwaves only penetrate the surface of food, making that hot. Thermal conduction does the rest.
You should never use paper towels in a microwave unless the instructions for doing the food say so. You wouldn't put a paper towel in a gas or electric oven, so don't put them in a microwave.

If you try to heat something for a minute , the microwave will turn on for about 15 seconds then shut off . It doesn't even seem to warm the food.


It may need a reset. You can do that by unplugging the power for a minute or two, then plugging it back in and setting the clock.

If it still fails, you may have a failing cooling fan or a problem on the control circuit board.

My Delonghi AM820AGX microwave no longer heats up liquids/food. It turns on and looks like it works, but when I test the liquids/food, they are still cold. I could have possibly changed the settings...


It souds like a busted MAGNETRON, and replacing it usually costs almost the price of a new oven...

Nothing to do with a setting... Sorry!

Everything turns on and it looks like it is heating up the food, or defrosting, but the food never heats up or defrosts.


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Hello; my oven has been working perfectly. I tried to use the defrost. For doing that I pushed several different pads. Finally with the help of the Owner´s Manual I coudl use the defrost, but the oven is...


It sounds like what you've done is locked up something in the timer. I'd unplug the unit., wait a few minutes and plug it back in. If that doesn't do it, I'd look at whether your unit has some kind of child's lockout that you may have activated. Not that...we've got to look at more issues.

It could be one of several things. A defective diode, triode, high-voltage capacitor, or even a faulty magnetron. Find your appliance model number, go to, http://www.apwagner.com and put your number in the model search. They should have breakdowns of many most current models. This way you can know what is what and what to look for. Good luck
