Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I love my KMC brand microwave. Model # KMO 24G. It's 23 years old this month. I'd really like to fix it. The power button has stopped working. I could get it to work for a while by just holding it down, but now that won't even work. I know it's old, but I really would miss it. Can you help me, please? Thank you.

What you may need to do is to clean the touchpad membrane as after a while, grease, condensation, and other foreign articles could be causing the touchpad to be dirty and not function. You can clean the touch pad with methylated spirits, but please read up and learn how to discharge a high voltage capacitor as they can store a very dangerous amount of charge and cause fatal injury, if not death, so please be careful. I hope this helps.

Totally dead microwave


I'd first check the power outlet "under load". A hair dryer or a toaster make really good loads to test outlets.

Otherwise, at two months old, it should be under warranty and you should be able to get it fixed or replaced free.

Consult your owner's manual for the warranty and manufacturer contact info or contact the dealer you purchased it from for that info.

Microwave does not heat only7 months old


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

GE Customer Service is here.

If yours is not a GE, please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

Temperature control


By default, it should cook at high (full) power.

On most brands, you would press Cook, enter the time digits, then press Start. And it automatically cooks at high power.

If it is losing heating power, your magnetron is probably failing.

This one's pretty old, but if you really love it, it's worth it. Owners of old microwaves usually love them. They're pretty strong units.

I just recently repaired an old GE (then by Panasonic / Quasar) convection microwave for a customer in New York. He shipped the whole microwave (95 pounds) to me and of course paid for return!

If you or someone you know wants to look into this, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You should be able to find original or generic replacement parts at various places. If you want more help finding parts or testing etc, reply back here or contact me directly.
