2 slices of bread wrapped in paper towel microwave set on defrost set 35 seconds caught fire


Microwaves work by friction. They blast water molecules in the food so they move fast, just like rubbing your hands together makes them hot. Some types of microwave in defrost mode actually apply FULL POWER for a short period of time so to make the product warm to the touch. This heat then penetrates down to the core of the food, ensuring full defrost. In your case the heat was sufficient enough to heat the dry paper towel to set it on fire.
Bread is better defrosted on the low power setting as sliced bread is very thin. Items should only be defrosted on the defrost setting that are thick and need to be completely defrosted on the inside. Remember microwaves only penetrate the surface of food, making that hot. Thermal conduction does the rest.
You should never use paper towels in a microwave unless the instructions for doing the food say so. You wouldn't put a paper towel in a gas or electric oven, so don't put them in a microwave.

How do I change the time on m Siemens Microwelle plus oven please? Model number HF75960GB


Did you try pushing the clock button, setting the time (eg. 300) for three o'clock, and then push the clock button once more. If this doesn't work, don't push the clock button at the end. Just set it, and let it stay until it stops blinking - and then it should be set. If you need further assistance, let me know and I'll help you. I'm just going by the usual standard of setting clocks on microwave's - but maybe with this model, there's another way. Good Luck to you! - Jim

Bread will not stay down; element does not get hot (Kenmore toaster- 10 -12 years old). I don't know if there is spring that needs to be replaced or if the element itself is gone. How would I test for this...


Hi and welcome to Fixya. There is a simple test you can do with an ohm meter across the heating element connections.

The unit must be unplugged and your going to have to remove the cover.

Check for any signs of low resistance across the element connections. No resistance or infinity and the element is history.

Any sliced bread toaster with a failed heating element will have the symptoms you described. However, it could also be the mating contact has failed which is closed when the bread holder is in the down postion.


My experience... 10 - 12 year old toasters are not worth repairing unless it is a commercial type unit. By the time you order the needed parts and pay the shipping you far exceed unit replacement costs. Repair costs rise even more if you ship it or hand carry it to a repair service center.

The clock works & counts down but the microwave won't heat


  • Disconnect the power for 30 seconds. After restoring power, do not set the clock.
  • If your model has an ON/OFF clock display, you can choose not to have the time displayed. To choose this option, press the 0 pad for about three seconds. To Turn the display back on, press the 0 again.





Touch the clock pad. Enter in the correct time of day by touching the numbers in sequence. Touch the clock pad again.
