Question about Sunbeam SMW750 Microwave Oven

For the sunbeam microwave sgb8901, do you take off the cover over the oven air vent? It's inside the oven on the right hand side- it looks like a rectanglar silver colored piece of cardboard.

According to the manual, it's Splatter Shield, and shouldn't be removed.

My Sunbeam Microwave SGB8901 lights up and seems to be working, but it doesn't heat anything. Is this fixable?

Only 2 years old? Hopefully you still have owner's manual, troubleshooting section should help you look for the problem. Hopefully, there is a circuit breaker, or perhaps a fuse. I hope it was not used with a metal object accidentally. No help? Check with Sunbeam Customer service, be nice, they usually are helpful.

How do you change the light bulb in a sunbeam microwave oven SGB8901?

First, you will probably have to buy the replacement light, which is a Z-187, 125v-20w lamp assembly, and a tamper-proof star key set, each of which are available for less than ten bucks on the web.Only other tool that you will need is a Philips head screwdriver, though you might find pliers helpful to remove the old lamp assembly from its spade connectors.
All the warnings of potential dangers of this project are valid, but taking care not to rush the project and only touch items as necessary will minimize risks.Needless to say, keep children and pets away from the disassembled oven, even after the plug has been pulled.
Unplug the microwave and remove the four tamper-proof screws along the back of the top cover, using the T20 key, and the three Philips-head screws along the side of the cover.Carefully lift up the cover of the oven.
Handling your new bulb by its base to keep moisture and body oils from the glassy portion, use it as a reference to locate the old bulb.It should be poking out of the top of the right side of the oven, upside down, with its spaded connectors sticking up.With luck, a sticker with a vague description of the bulb will still be stuck next to the light.Remove the Philips-head screw holding the bulb in place and pull out.Pull the connectors off the old bulb, and put them on the new assembly, being careful to keep the bulb as clean as possible.Put the bulb back in the hole, reinstall the screw, and put the cover back on the microwave by reversing the above instructions.

I need instructions for using my Sunbeam Model # SGB8901, Household Microwave oven. Input 120V - 60Hz Single Phase 1350W, Output 900V, 245 MHz, Serial # TAB0910101582, October 2009......This is unused...

I do not know that unit speciffically but on most units, push clear and then try to set the time of day, or clock, then to use, look for a pad that says cook or cook time, and enter 1:00 to test it and put a cup of water inside and then hit start and see what you get.

I got this Sunbeam SGB8901 microwave that doesn't heat anything. It turns on, rotates drink or food, and it sounds like it's working fine, but once the timer counts down, you pull out the drink and it's...

That will either be the magnetron or the power transistors inside having failed. If you get lucky a repair shop might be able to fix it reasonably but usually it is time to look for a replacement as the repairs cost more than the new one.

I had the same problem, but didn't have the box anymore. The store let me exchange it for another one but that one is doing the same thing too.
