Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Riccar microwave model RM700N. We've had it for almost 30 years and it finally quick working. It doesn't heat. I guess I shouldn't be surprised after all this time. It has been a great microwave and I'm pretty sure I will never find another one as good as it has been. I don't suppose there could be something simple to fix? It's like a part of the family.

Microwave won't heat for first minute - starts working normally after that.


The magnetron may be defective. You can replace the magnetron, there is no other possibility.

Make and model will usually be on a label plate on the back of the unit.
With the age of the unit and unlikely availability of spares you may be better to look for a new unit. Cheers, Dan

Thermandor Microwave MBES is shutting off.


That is a possibility but there other parts that can come into play, a bad magnetron " filiment sometimes opens" high voltage diode " sometimes cracks and developes a high level short, and finally the high voltage capacitor " will normally short" I do recommend a professional in this case.

My Kenmore Built-in microwave doesn't heat and the turn table doesn't turn. Model 911-47812200


It is good that the microwave does not work all together. It might be an interlock button or even a relay connection burn on the main mother circuit board.

Need a qualified technician. The service manual will be like $20-50.

I have a Sharp Carousel R-590 microwave that is about 10 years old. I fixed popcorn last night and after it stopped I added 30 seconds. It appeared to run but with a different and louder noise. However,...


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps

Microwave won't heat anything


Yeah, it's time to invest in a new oven. The magnetron tube in yours most likely just finally wore out. It's the source of the microwaves, and like any tube it gets weaker with age and finally just quits altogether. It would cost more for a new magnetron than it would for a new oven these days.

Microwave lights and buttons work but doesn't heat up anything


When you start the microwave say for 1 minute. Listen closely when you hit start, the light should come on and about a 1/2 second later you should hear a little click and a slight hum. This means the controller is turning on the high voltage transformer and that part of it is working. My guess is that the magnatron is bad. That's the most common problems with all brands of microwaves. The mat on the top should not have caused the problem since the microwave has heat shutdowns in it. I would say that it's a 90% chance it's the magnatron. Most microwaves have a 5 year warranty on that part. Look at your owners manual. Good luck.
