Could be a problem with the magnetron. I recommend calling a service man to take a look, or purchase a new machine (whichever works out cheaper for you).

What material is usually used to transfer heat around central heating systems?


Water. Water is a good conductor of heat. The boiler heats the water, a pump circulates it around the system and through the radiators where it loses heat. Cooler water returns to the boiler for re-heating.

Microway oven doesn't heat. Everything else works.


More than likely it's the magnetron and/or diode, chances are it may still be under warranty. Online owners manual states 5 year warranty on magnetron. Part only, service call and installation not included. Diode not covered. They require serial number, and will let you know if it's still under warranty. Installation appears to be simple, UNPLUG MICROWAVE THEN MAKE SURE YOU DISCHARGE CAPACITOR. INJURY OR POSSIBLE DEATH IF NOT DISCHARGED PROPERLY. Google how to install magnetron and discharge capacitor. It will save you approx $ 250 - 300 doing it yourself. Hope this helps. Be Safe

I dont know how to use induction cooker.it has no numbers to reduce the heat.things will burn very fast


You can use to set the timing in order of the heat required. Also using the grade rating of the heating coupled with the time set, the food can be easily heated without burning.
To start with use low heat and long time, the try with medium heat and lesser time and then choose high heat and short time. You must be able to use the settings accordingg to your requirement.
Hope this advice helps

Dishwasher is running through cycles ok but water is not heating so only cold cycles.


Hi


The water is not heating as the heating element has gone bad or a fuse has blown which is preventing heating element to turn on. To check the heating element you'll need to turn off the dishwasher, unplug it. After unplugging it check the heating element formineral deposit on it, clean the deposits using a soft brush and a cleaning solution(Don't scrub the elemnt hard). If this doesn't resolves the issue then remove the panel and examine all the wirin connections to the heating element. Now, use a multimeter and check for the resistance reading(ohms, Rx1) for the heating element. The multimeter should display between 1200-1600 ohms or 1.2K ohms. If it is less than 1200 then you'll need to get the heating element replaced. Also, check for any blown fuse around the element. This should resolve your issue.

Thanks

The power is out and no idea why!!! have checked power


Hello there:
Yes you are right about the fuse.
You will need to remove the outer cover by removing the screws that are on the back these are the ones around the edge and then there are several on the bottom of the microwave.
Once these are removed the cover will slide out away from the front of the microwave towards the back *** somtimes this is verry tight so a flat tip screw driver will help you start to get it to move
once the cover is removed than look towards the front and you will see the circuit board that has the fuse on it. now remove the fuse and replace it with a new one and before you reassemble the cover plug in the microwaye and test to make sure that it now works if not the board that the fuse is on may be bad but if it does work good now just reassemble the cover and you will be good to go ok?
I hope that this has been very helpfull for you.
best regards Michael

KitchenAid Superba Microwave/Oven, Microway Door message


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

If you only need a switch, you can order one from us for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
