SOURCE: Hotpoint RVM1425BA-003 Microwave Oven Stovetop Light Does Not Work

The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inopoerable or stuck on.

SOURCE: the door handle broke of my Hotpoint counter saver

Yes, this is very fixable. The door handle can be easily replaced on most microwave oven models. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3696942-microwave_oven_door_handle_replacement

The cost usually averages about $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided. However, price and configuration of your oven also depends upon the MODEL NUMBER. Since you did not include this information with your question, I'm providing you the information that applies to most ovens.

If you have any questions, please post back with your model number and let me know. I hope this helps you

If your turntable is not going around you may have one of two problems: the coupler under the glass tray may be worn and in need of replacement or the turntable motor needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

Just stopped heating anything last night, it's a Hot Point Counter Saver Plus but says on inside to call GE 1-800-626-6000


On that same label there is a MODEL number that we need to show you a parts listing of what parts may have failed. Hotpoint and GE are on in the same... the only difference is the brand name on the decals. Of course they use different model numbers.... Your model number will be similar to this: RVM1435BD001 I will use that as my parts reference model number as the interal parts that may have failed will be pretty much identical.

When a microwave just out of the blue stops heating usually the either the diode or the capacitor has failed.

See items 49 and 50 this link:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=221110

This unit also has 2 thermostats that can also cause it to stop heating. One actually controls the fan speed and the other is an over temp sensor that should shut off everything. The thermostat that controls fan speed shuts off the magnetron power on some units until the unit cools down and then it will work again.

If the magnetron has failed they usually make a loud buzzing sound when you turn on the unit from being cold. (Stuck oscillator) This can also cause the HV power diode and the unit fuse to fail.

Sears parts direct also has the parts for this unit here:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Hotpoint-Parts/Microwave-Parts/Model-RVM1435BD001/1811/0123370/G0302144/00001?blt=06&prst=&shdMod=

I change out the diode FIRST (after testing the old diode to make certain the diode has in fact failed.) I also test the capacitor while the diode is disconnected from the capacitor.

At this time I think you have a diode or a capacitor problem. If you have someone you know that can use a meter I can pass the information to them on how to test the diode and the capacitor so that you don't order parts that you DO NOT need.

If I got your model number wrong you can enter your model number on the displayed page of either link above. Or respond here with your model number and I will look up your unit.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Hotpoint Counter Saver Microwave not working


Please do not try to service. its dangerous to play with the internal parts of a Micro Wave. Most counter tops are pretty inexpensive buy a new one if the warranty is out.

Microwave power,timer seems to work but it does not do anything.


Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

Hotpoint RVM1425


The first thing I would suggest is to turn off the breaker or unplug it from the wall for a few minutes to "reset" it, then try again. If a reset doesn't fix it, I would think you may have a defective magnetron. When you heat something of very low moisture content, it can lead to microwave energy not being fully absorbed, but instead being reflected back to the magnetron. This can damage it. This is usually best left to a pro to repair. In case it might help, your owner's manual can be found online at: http://products.geappliances.com/ProdContent/Dispatcher?REQUEST=SKUOBJECTS&DOCUMENT=Use%20and%20Care%20Manual&SKU=RVM1425BA
