Question about Siemens Ovens

1 Answer

In 1991 I bought in Germany a Siemens Microwelle Plus oven, and I brought it to Brazil, where it worked perfectly until 4 days ago, when the capacitor burned due to overtiming and excess of charge. This kind of Siemens microwave is not sold in Brazil,and therefore there are not spare parts available here. Where can I buy a replacement for the burned capacitor either in US or any European country? Can give me the right contacts and addresses? Tnak you very much. Romeo Zero

This might be a hard exact item to replace, but look at the old capacitor and write down any information on it- uF capacity should be written on the old capacitor. These are metal body, electrolytic caps, and so an equivalent cap, rated the same, will work, although not be an exact fit, so you will have to jury rig it (improvise).
Here are typical specs on a cap:

Here are some caps on Ebay, and a lot of shippers are international. Here is the page:

If you cannot find what you're looking for on Ebay, contact the following vendor:

If you explain your dilemma, they might be able to suggest a replacement part.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.

Fan and element not working


hi not sure if you've had a reply but when my zanussi main oven stopped working i just changed the element (purchased from e bay).
open oven door and the back you will see 4 screws(basically 4 corners) remove these screws and you will see the element, pretty straight forward to remove, obviously fan wont work until you have heat (hopefully fan ok) you can give this a go, cheaper than buying a new oven. i have done this twice. hope this helps.
