Question about Microwave Ovens

Belling CJ ss 25 Microwave Combi

I have a combi oven / grill /microwave which is no longer working on the microwave function.

I believe that someone may have run the microwave with the metal grill tray inside - thus causing a short (perhaps - not sure if I have the terminology correct). Can this be repaired, and is the cost likely to be more than the value of the unit.

Just to add complications, I live in Ireland, and therefore looking for a repair in my area (Kildare). Can I attempt this myself ??

Thanks for any advice etc.

    To answer your questions.

    The microwave does start, and *appears* to operate as normal, except that it does not generate heat.

    The timer works, light comes on and turntable turns. Still *bings* when it completes cycle.

    Re: sound louder or quieter - I haven't noticed any significant difference.

    I didn't notice any burn spots - but I will have a look when I get home this afternoon.

    Thanks for this feedback so far !!!

    Does the microwave run when you press Start?

    When you press Start:

    - Does it count down?

    - Does the inside light come on?

    - Does the turntable turn?

    - Does it sound any louder or quieter than it used to?

    If arcing metal occurred, you will see some burn spots on the metal grill tray or on the interior metal surfaces of the microwave.

    Please clarify the problem / symptom you're having.

I would suspect a bad magnetron or a loose connection at the magnetron's terminals or possibly another high voltage part (such as a shorted diode or bad transformer).

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Otherwise, I would contact the manufacturer or your local microwave / appliance repair center for service.

Good luck.

or log on to the manufacturer's web site, whirlpool.com, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, and a list of Dealers as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 microwave


My Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 Microwave / oven / grill has recently developed a problem. Every time I close the door the turntable starts rotating, even when I'm not using it. It doesn't make a noise, and doesn't seem to be going into any cooking setting, and the light doesn't come on, but it turns until I open the door, when the light comes on and the turntable stops turning. This has only recently started happening, and nothing else seems to be wrong with it, Is this safe or should I get rid of it and buy a new one. The guarantee has expired so repair may be cost prohibitive.
