We have a Roper electric oven model #FES340YW-2, we turn the oven on, it comes on for about 10 seconds, then goes off, I went to this website, the expert said there was a bad thermo switch, I replaced it and it still does the same thing. Thanks, RR

Hello RR. check the Oven High Limit thermostat. It should be 0 ohms at room temperature. Chances are you will have to replace the oven high limit thermostat. Joe

Micowave goes on for few seconds then blows fuse. replaced magnetron tube and still does same thing


If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.
If it went dead several seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

Microwave shutts off after 2 seconds/


See if this describes what's happening:
  • Put in time, push start and unit runs for 2 seconds, relay clicks, unit goes off. Cook time on display goes off and clock time comes back. Bad upper interlock switch and charred connector
If so, see
http://207.234.249.73/mwd/safety.txt
http://207.234.249.73/mwd/disassembly.txt
http://207.234.249.73/mwd/doorsw.txt


Otherwise, if the digital programmer circuit / controller does not get a feedback signal from the inverter for a period of 3 seconds, the controller will stop the cook cycle.

It may be a loose connection in the wiring between the inverter, magnetron, and/or control board, or maybe one of those components has failed.


Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

11-30-2010 I need the user manual of Amana Mictowave model RS560W . Kindly assist. Thanks. Rgds Alon Felz The real problem: After heating the food (in a certain time selected), a beep sound should be heard...


In order to solve the problem this is what I did (with a help of Mr. Hilik
@ www.microgal.co.il)
1. Unplug the power cable 220Vac from the wall outlet.
2. Make sure or the clock led is "off" and screen is dark
3. Plug again the power cable 220Vac
4. Nothing comes "on" on the led screen
5. press on the digit "zero" (0) and you hear a beep signal
6. Take a glass filled with water press on the digits "1" and then "0" and
then "start"
7. After 10 seconds the beep signal will come on again.
8. Note: this kind a phenomena appears after voltage cut off when there
is a need to lift up again the handle on the voltage breakers . FYI.

66993 pizza oven microwave oven combo pizza oven not heating error code f1 microwave part works


Hello, please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC. However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes – 362 Series (General Electric)
F1 = Stuck Touch Pad Key - Replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 911 Series (General Electric/Roper)
F0-F1-FF = Failed transistor in Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE Range/Stove/Oven Fault Codes- 665 Series (Whirlpool)
F1-E0 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E1 EPROM Error - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E2 U/L ERC Errors - Electronic Range Control (ERC).
F1-E3 Fuel Type Fail

Kill power 30 seconds-Cancel-Start/Enter-5 seconds-Should see “E” for electric-
“9” for gas-If code changes again-replace Electronic Range Control (ERC).

KENMORE - 790 Series Electronic Oven Control (Frigidaire)
F1 = Shorted Touch Pad = Electronic Range Control (EOC) Internal check sum error.
Runaway Temp = Replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Kill power 30 seconds - if error returns - replace Electronic Oven Control (EOC).

Thanks

Did I short something out?


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

MICROWAVE


First of all, it Roper may honor the warranty even though you're not the original owner. I'd contact them first: http://www.roperappliances.com/support/

If they won't cover it, here are some tips:

A microwave can be dead for many reasons.

If it goes dead for a while during or after cooking then comes back on, the magnetron is probably overheating and causing the thermostat to open. When it cools, it closes the circuit and allows power through again.

If it's random, it may be a bad connection, usually on the control board or fuse holder.

If it went dead almost immediately after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If it went dead a few seconds after pressing the Start pad, that's usually a failing high-voltage transformer.

If the fuse is good, it may be an open thermostat or thermal cutout on or near the magnetron or on top of the cavity / body of the oven.

This last issue is what I suspect in your case.

Microwave blows fuse


The most common suspects are the high voltage transformer and the magnetron. It's also possible you have a flaky door switch or loose door switch mount. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
