Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Hello Have owned this microwave a couple of years. Everything works on this microwave, ie clock, timer etc . It just will not heat anything, or defrost. I have unplugged it for 12 hours and plugged it into a different outlet, like the rep said to do, and held down the reset button for 5 seconds, but still nothing

Doesn't heat anything


It sounds like the micro generator has died.

Yes, you should buy a new one as the cost of repair is likely to be high.

Food won't heat up


Hello, I had the same problem, and just fixed mine. Start by turning on your microwave (on mine, the light turned on and timer worked, but the fan nor the plate turned)... push the door upward and see if the microwave turns on... (mine did). so far so good. open the door and take the upper hinge cap off with flat head screwdrive. take the door off and place a small washer on the bottom hinge, put the door back on. your microwave should be good now. essentially, the door just needs to be pushed up a bit so it will work.
good luck, hope that works for you...

WILL NOT HEAT BUT EVERYTHING ELSE WORKS, IE. TURNTABLE, CLOCK, ETC.


In all likelihood the mangnetron is failing, or perhaps even the Power Supply is faulty. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.Yes they are right.

Hi there, everything seems to be working fine -- lights turn on, fan works, buttons all work, clock working, timer working, etc. -- but the microwave won't heat anything. any recs?


Generally, there are one of three failures.
Blown fuse in the Magnetron circuit.

The main capacitor failed (Required to power the magnetron)
The Magnetron itself has failed.
My local appliance repair guy helped figure out my last microwave failures. Once was the fuse the other was the capacitor.
The fuse was a couple bucks, the capacitor was $25 or so.
Generally, if you are not familiar with repairing a microwave, it is best to take it to a repair shop to be evaluated/repaired as it is real easy to get shocked working on one.

Does the turntable rotate? If everything but this works (except no heat), you probably have a bad door switch. Here's a discussion of what's involved in replacing it: http://www.fixya.com/support/t267796-kenmore_microwave_hood_combination_over

If the turntable does rotate, I'd suspect a more significant failure, such as the transformer, capacitor, or magnetron. If it's any of these, it's time to replace the unit.
