Hi,

The last question was asked in an Oven category, however i replied it for the bread maker as you mentioned the same in the question.


There is no fix for the same. You might read different techniques people posted ranging from washers to Teflon paint.However, that would work sometimes only for minutes. It would be waste of money and time trying to fix the leak. This is a common problem. I understand your concern, however you need to bite the bullet and go for a new one.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    I understand your concern, however it's better to be honest. I could tell you many tricks that i have seen, however it would not last long. It would be a waste of time and money.However, still if you wanted to try those, revert and i could compile and send you the procedures.

    Thanks!!

Try2910227 serial ywmh2205xvb-0 model arcing on the back corner were the rack sits.Is there a way to repair this seen is the unit was purchaced in June of 2011.


Yes, take the rack out and recycle it. I do not know why these micro-wave company put racks in the micro wave ovens. You get some insulation on the inside the micro flaking off next the rack.


The mega-tron tube is a very high energy transmitter. The energy will come out of the top inside the micro wave oven in a wave guide. Micro wave energy that generation by the tube is high frequency into Gega Hertz. You have a metal tray in side the micro wave acts like a big capacitor it stores energy in form of heat the next you know it look like Marconi is putting on a lighting display.



Leave the wire tie on a loft of bread and put in you micro wave oven to defrost. The next thing you might see is a load bread burning, instant toast. ----The use of micro wave were invented by the British before WWII. The mega tron tube generation very high frequency radio wave and these wave struck an object 100 miles away some of this beam energy would balance back to a receiver-----You have Radar.... I wish you and your family well being and be careful of micro wave ovens it can burn from inside out. GB you...stewbison

When micro wave oven is in use, I can feel air coming from the door. is it leaking micro waves?


Not likely if the door seals are intact, clean, and the door is latched. The pin-holed screen that you can see through stops the microwave energy. Hope this helps!

H97 fault code on a micro wave. What is the estimated cost to fix? Is it cheaper to buy a new one?


Either te magnetron has failed or the invertor has failed.
How long is a piece of string.
Ask a Panasonic Authorised Repair Centre for an estimate.

Ge eterna m#em03000hbb01 micro wave runs for a few seconds,then all symbols in display light up,press clear,it resets then have to enter time,am or pm and date. will acircut board fix this?


Hi, we get microwaves all the time at my shop, look usually they cost more to fix than a new one. They usually have a limited life, I advise you to ask for a 'Quote" and go from there at least that way you know to repair or replace.

Model JVM1650WH02 will shut off about 2 seconds or less into cook time. everything else works such as light and clock and sometimes the wave will cook.


magnetron is leaking internally, do not use until magnetron is replaced. the mag creates interference with the control board and resets it

Oven appears to function normally but doesn't cook at all.


With micro waves, this could be a number of things. They are hard to diagnose using this forum but I'll try. There are three things you can check. One being the thermal fuse. On some models, when it goes bad it put some things out. with others it puts every thing out.
if it's good, check the mag tube (Magnatron). Most of the time, it will be burned on the end if it's bad. tube. The last thing would be the fuse. It is made of ceramic and is a 20amp. It looks like a old round car fuse but it's not. It's made just for micro waves. Honestly, if the thermal fuse and the round 20 amp fuse is not the problem, you may be able to replace the micro wave cheaper than replacing the parts.
Thermal fuse $28.99.
Round 20amp fuse $1.53
Transformer $100.00.
Mag tube $87.00
Capacitor $45.00
Go to www.appliancepartspro.com and enter your model number. This will pull up every part in the micro wave and their prices. Then you will ba able to decide if you want to replace the parts. With yours being one that's built-in over the stove. These cost more and are worth putting more into. If I can help any more comment back and I'll do what I can.

The toaster on LG LMF-9030TW combined with micro-wave is not heating. The fuse is ok and wiring also. Cannot bring it to repair shop cause I will be out of micro-wave for 2-3 weeks, until fixed. Probably...
