Question about Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

We are house sitting for friends. They have a Miele Classic, wall mounted combi oven. It has a single dial at the top left of the silver facia. To activate the microwave, I turned the dial one click clock-wise. I then pressed the "-" and " " buttons to alter the wattage. As I pressed the "-" button, I seem to recall the display showing numbers going from 600 to 350 to 150. I then pressed the " " button to increase the wattage. However the display then showed "FOI" and I have been unable to change this. The oven is now not functioning in any mode. Could you please explain how to resolve the FOI display? Many thanks James Plunket james@jplunket.force9.co.uk

The microwave turns on by itself sometimes when the door is shut; it seems like the latch contacts or the door mechanism has some problems. I have to unplug the micro from the power to stop it. I also have to set the clock again
Thanks

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Please reply back with your brand and full model number.

Electrolux wall mount micro wave oven combo doesn't work


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Electrolux wall mount microwave oven combo is not working. I see that the oven is working, but the microwave is not. I suggest resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power and try any setting. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. If further troubleshooting is needed, please provide me with the model number of your air conditioner. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Hi, our Miele Classic H147-2MB, we have had for about six years. The oven and grilll aspectys still work fine, but the microwave function has stopped working. Any ideas? Also, as an aside, the markings...


Hi - it can be repaired - there are a few things that may have gone AWOL with the machine - there is the Magnetron (specially made), the door interlock, HV transformer, HV diode.

The only way is to have it inspected and the above components tested for failure - it could any of these or a combination of two - there is a control fuse also which is likely to be blown as well. The magnetron would be the expensive component and Miele units are unque design where other brands would not be compatible.

No socket for bulb on left side of oven


The oven cavity lamp is hidden up on top. You have to unplug the oven and remove the single piece top/side cover to get at it. Typically, you have to take out screws on the back of the oven along the top and side edges. Sometimes there are also screws in the sides and rarely along the bottom edge. Once you get these screws out, pull the cover back about 1/2" and lift it away. Look for a standard appliance light bulb right over the holes in the oven cavity ceiling or wall where the light normally shines in.

Instalation Instructions for Frigidaire Over the Range Microwave 850 Watt Model #FMT118EPB


HI,

Frigidaire makes several over-the-range microwave models that are all installed in the same manner. To install correctly, you must have at least 45 1/2 inches from the bottom of the top cabinet to the cooking surface of the stove to provide enough clearance for the microwave. The top cabinet must also be at least 30 inches wide and 12 inches deep. Find someone to help you, then follow the steps below to install your Frigidaire microwave.

Things You'll Need:
  • Stud finder or hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Drill
Instructions

Pull your range away from the wall so you can work comfortably. If this is not possible, cover it with a drop cloth. Find and mark the locations of the studs in the wall behind the range. They will be either 16 or 24 inches apart.

Follow the instructions on the wall template to mark the location of the mounting bracket and the four anchor holes on the wall and the bottom of the cabinet. Drill the anchor holes. Follow the instructions on the top cabinet template to mark and drill the two holes in the bottom of the cabinet.

Attach the mounting bracket to the wall studs using the six wood screws included with your microwave. Screw the toggle nuts onto the toggle bolts and push one through each of the four drilled holes. Screw each toggle bolt until the nut is snug against the inside of the wall.
Pick up the oven with your helper. Plug the oven into the outlet and slide the oven onto the mounting bracket arms. Push the oven back against the wall. Tighten the two screws on the microwave faceplate to fasten the microwave to the mounting bracket arms.
Attach the louver to the top of the microwave with the three provided screws. Insert the two top cabinet screws and washers from the top cabinet into the microwave and fasten tightly.

Take care.

Remove a whirlpool over the range microwave oven


Jim here. In cabinet above microwave, locate 2 mounting bolts.
Place a box on the stove top to support the microwave once the mounting bolts are removed (you may wish to cover the box with a thick towel or small throw rug).
Procedure:
1. Unplug microwave.
2. Remove both mounting bolts from top of microwave (they secure it to the overhead cabinet).
3. With microwave front angled down onto box, pull some of power cord out of hole (to provide some moving space).
4. With microwave hand supported, remove box from stove top (a second set of hands would be helpful here).
5. HARD PART- detach top of microwave back from wall mounting plate by placing a hand under the bottom rear of the microwave and pushing up. (Wall mounting plate is screwed into the wall behind the microwave and provides both top and bottom support to the back of the microwave.)
6. Lower front of microwave until you can see about a 1-inch clearance between the top-rear of the microwave and the cabinet above it.
7. Firmly lift the microwave straight up and then bring forward. It should be free of the wall mounting plate.
