The magnetron (the part that makes your food get hot) has probably burned out. It will need to be repaired, preferably by someone who does this sort of thing for a living.

My microwave LG MB-2341BR is not functioning as the touch panel not working. The start touch is not working. Do we get touch panel replacement now?


I being an experienced technician all I do is get micro buttons such as used in television set .I carefully apply minimal hot air from a hair dyer to the touch panel in a clean environment then strip the adhesive touch panel to check the wire ring that tress back to the pcb that is just beneath the touch panel. yo have to locate common and the wire responsible for touch, then drill a small hole where the micro button will sit solder to wires on the button then carefully solder them on the board.now make sure the button is on the same level with the surface before you return the adhesive touch panel make sure the button sits well then from beneath apply hot glue please don't use super glue if you don't understand I will send you pictures.

Shm1816s Samsung microwave oven wont shut off All lights off turn table not turning but you can hear the humming. the turn table plate gets very hot.


Hi,
if the turntable is getting hot it means that the microwave is working but as the turntable is not turning , it means the adjustment of the door lock of your microwave may have become improper due to use.may be it got damaged.
call the technician of samsung microwave ,he will open the cabinet of microwave and make the adjustment of door lock proper.
Thanks

Maytag oven will not heat, no gas flow. Broiler works, clock and timer works.


Hi,

You may even see the orange "glow plug" (called a hot surface igniter) glowing orange and so assume that it's OK. Not necessarily!! You have to measure the current/amp drawn by the igniter and compare it to this repair sheet before you can say it's OK or not. The gas valve has a bi-metal that open when a certain amount of current flows through it to heat it up. The igniter is wired in series with the gas valve. As the igniter gets older or weaker, it's resistance increases to the point where not enough current is flowing to the gas valve bimetal to open it up. As a result, the gas valve never opens up. BTW, a common symptom of the early stages of this problem is erratic temperature control in the oven due to delayed firing of the bake burner while cooking.

The hot surface igniter will not come on - check igniter with a ohm meter, you should have continuity through the glow bar, the glow bar can also crack = new igniter time. The glow bar comes on but the main burner will not light - you should have an amp probe to check properly, but often this is a hot surface igniter problem. The hot surface igniter often looses it's ability to get hot enough to open the gas safety valve. The safety valve can fail, but most times it is just a bad hot surface igniter. The hot surface igniter can also quit part way through cooking , in other words the oven may cycle a couple of times and then it just sits there with the red glow from the igniter. See this service sheet for the proper way and amp readings for the hot surface igniter system. Hot surface igniters do weaken and will eventually generate less heat than they normally could. When this happens they can still allow marginally correct current to flow to the oven gas valve for it to open but not get quite hot enough to ignite the gas burner immediately. When this happens, gas released into the oven can sometimes build up to the point where when finally ignited, the amount of gas lit can cause a small explosion inside the oven or cause an odor of gas with out the oven working. Yes, your glow bar igniter can glow orange-red and still be bad!! How a common gas valve works - click here.

Touch pad on my ge profile jvm2070bh02 will not work when it gets hots. i wait till it cools down, or i shut the power off and it works again till it gets hot.


Heat related issues always boil down to three types of problems.
1. Connectors: not properly seated into their socket; wires not fully locked into their connector. Heat causes expansion which can allow a loose wire/connection to break the circuit.

2. A defective component is breaking down from the heat and causing the control panel to malfunction.

3. A defective circuit board. The heat will cause the circuit board to 'expand' allowing any cracked traces or cracked solder connections to open and cause a malfunction.

If reseating all the connectors associated with the control panel does not help, you just may have to replace the control panel board.

My microwave started working on its own until it became very hot (no one turned it on ), none of the off buttonsor any button was working


If this is over the stove, it has a sensor that tells the fan to run if it gets too hot. Check owners manual if it is available.

As long as it's not too hot to touch, and you feel air moving through the vents when it's running, it should be okay.
