Question about Whirlpool Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Bought a brand new whirlpool microwave/convection oven 2 months ago. Model GH7208XRS-1. Was using it to reheat food for 2 minutes. Food was not hot enough, so put it in for 1 more minute. When I closed the door to start that last minute, everything was off. No lights, no nothing? Any ideas? Is there a reset?

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If it's still dead, since it's under warranty I would contact Whirlpool customer service for a free fix.

Microwave oven no longer reheat food


If it has been over a 18 months, go get a new one. If not, do not take any leakage risks. If you do, wear a helmet or call 1-800-got-junk.

You should replace the waveguide cover, the plate you refer to. They are fairly cheap and easy to replace.

My delonghi 800w microwave oven works but does not heat up food


If your handy with getting the cover off and looking inside... check the obvious.
I suspect :
fuse
thermister
relay
If both microwave and Heating elements dont work, then I will assume the magnetron is ok, ans we are dealing with a high voltage issue... and you will need at best... a volt meter and or neon troublelight...
moust appliances have a simple schematic inside... I would start with the heating element first... trace wiring back to circuit board... usually one side of the heating element is connected to the white wire (neutral) and live (Hot) side is controlled thru the circuit board... so finding the neutral should be easy... then trace with neon light or voltmeter...

I know easy for me to say... but with everything else working... it doesnt seem to be the microprocessor that controlls the unit...

My whirpool oven is working but does not seem to be heating as it should I wonder if the fan is not working


magnetron do get week over time even more so if you do a lot of short time food reheat, the fan normally is used to cool the magnetron wave guide and if it stops working the over temp safety will trip and stop the magnetron from working

HI. I have a Whirlpool Microwave (MH6141XKB). It will not reheat the food and makes a louder "humming" sound than normal. Other than that, everything works fine. Please advise. Brent


Brent
The magnatron in your oven has gone out and will need replaced!( This is the device that heats up your food) If everything is working and your food is not getting hot 99.9 percent of the time its the Magnatron or its fuse! The loud humming is also a big clue the MAGNATRON has gone bad!
Please rate this response and help us keep this area free!
Thank You!

Do not understand the use of the sensor


Dear ggold

I think you refer to the steam sensor. I,ll explain how it works with one of its uses. Say you want to reheat a plate of food. You can do this two ways. You can guess how much time it will take to warm the food, and maybe not heat it enough or overcook it which can ruin some foods. Or you can just press the "reheat" button. The oven will come on at full power and continue to operate until steam begins to rise from the plate. The oven then switches to a "countdown" mode until it determines the food is hot. Saves time and guesswork. Most modern ovens work like this. Since you dont give the make and model of your oven, this is the best I can do.
