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.

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.

My microwave just stopped working. It still turns on but when I type in the cook time, it starts but doesn't heat up the food at all. I checked the power setting and it is on high and I've also...

It seems likely that the cyclotron has failed. If it is under warrantee then I suggest you return it to the place you bought it from to get it repaired. If it is out of warrantee, then you need to decide if the cost of repair is worth it, or whether you just buy another one.

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.
