How to pop popcorn


place a teaspoon of cooking oil in the pot and place on stove. Put a small amount of corn to be popped in the pot and the heat will do the rest. 1/4 cup of corn will probably overflow the pot so use small amounts first until you get the idea.

Samsung microwave doesn't heat food.


Microwave ovens that do not heat, and failed as you have described, have 1 or more of the following failed components, in order of cost -

1) Fuse
2) Diode
3) Capacitor
4) Transformer
5) Magnetron

4 and 5 are interchangeable when it comes to cost.

Try replacing 1 and 2, then 3, then it's decision time of whether to buy parts or replace the microwave.

My Panasonic Microwave Genius 1300W will not heat up the food and the rotate dish spins and the sensor reheat will not heat up the food. Nor cook Pop Corn when pressing the buttons to 2:00 cook time. I...


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Turn table shattered while making pop corn. Cuisinart ModelCmw100


You can order a replacement dish here. The dish shattered because the heat from the bag of popcorn was too much for it. If you look at the owner's manual for almost every microwave, they tell you not to put popcorn directly on the glass dish, but to put it on another plate.

The oven should be safe to use. Just look for any burned spots on the paint in the bottom of the cooking cavity.

In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

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

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer. You can find one here:
