Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

Hi. i have just bought a Kenwood Mini Oven MO690 and using it for first time today. As per the manual, i've preheat the oven at 250 degrees for 15mins. Smoke was visible in the oven, which was normal according to the manual. But after 5mins, the oven stopped working, lights were off, the fan silent. I have let the oven to cool before begin baking. But it's been almost 30mins now and the oven refuse to function. What's wrong?

SOURCE: oven combo, oven works but the micro has no power

The fix for my problem was to remove the oven/microwave combo unit, and press the reset button on the back of the microwave. Oh yeah, and to write a $75 check for a 10 minute service call.

You want to try the fix for yourself? You have to remove all of the face screws holding the unit in place. There are 4 on the microwave front and 6 in the oven, 3 down each side, inside the lip where the door is. You must remove the door to get to the bottom ones. You don't have to remove the screws holding the plastic insert in place between the micro & oven, but you might want to remove the metal lip on the bottom of the oven to help prevent scratches to the cabinet. After that's done, get a helper and pull the unit most of the way out, then rotate a little to the left. That will expose the reset button on the back, right side of the microwave.

SOURCE: LG 1925 Microwave suddenly stopped cooking, other functions work fine!

What you said about the the clock leads me to suggest that you first unplug it for a few minutes then plug it back in. It may just need a good reset. If you don't have your owner's manual you can download one here: http://www.lge.com/support/manual.jsp The mention of odor concerns me. It may just be a bit of food or grease on the waveguide cover, which is a small sheet or panel on the wall or ceiling of the cooking cavity, but it may indicate the failure of a part in the high voltage section. You may have an intermittent door switch. You can see some of my other responses for info on how to get our important text file that helps you diagnose and repair door switches and gives important safety tips.

Chances are your thermistor is defective.

This UK model is probably similar to the US model R-930 or R-820.

We have both service manuals at our site and while the part numbers will not necessarily be the same, they will be handy for safety, disassembly and troubleshooting. They are here and here.

When you're ready to order parts, visit Sharp UK for spares dealers and servicers.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: westpoint convection oven take more than a hour to bake chicken

Chances are you have a bad thermistor (internal temperature sensor).

Your owner's manual should have a number or Web address for Westpoint customer service.

They should be able to tell you where you can locate an authorized servicer or parts.

SOURCE: 15 yr-old GE electric oven takes over an hour to preheat to 450

After jiggling the lower burn element the oven heated up in the normal time. Perhaps a connection had come loose.

My oven was bought one & a half yrs ago. Just now i on the oven to preheat & there is no temperature. Just wonder my oven is spoilt? Thanks


Did you mention if this is a microwave or a gas or electric oven.
If microwave there is no preheat unless with the food or using the heater, if so the heating element can be faulty. You will need to check this out and then check with the heating coils to confirm.
Someimes it can be only a fault on the contacts, relay or the connections to the heater.

What temp for turkey done ?


Always use an oven bag is used to promote even cooking.

Microwave on MEDIUM (50% power) for 7 to 9 minutes per pound rotating dish every 15 minutes. Not recommended for turkey over 12 pounds
Use an instant-read thermometer after cooking. Turkey is done when thermometer reads 180 degrees to 185 degrees F for whole turkey or 170 degrees to 175 degrees F for turkey breast. Insert thermometer through **** in oven bag into inner thigh for whole turkey or into thickest part of breast for turkey breast.
For easy slicing, let stand 10 minutes after removing from microwave oven. To open, carefully cut or **** top of oven bag. NOTE Microwave directions were tested in 600 to 700-watt microwaves. Higher or lower wattage ovens may need adjustment in cooking times.

How to set temperature


hi friend,

The microwave oven per se, does not have a temperature. The microwaves that are generated simply heat up the water molecules in the item that they hit. So, the maximum temperature, I guess, would be 100 degrees C or 212 degrees F, the boiling point of water.


thank u for using fixya

Convection Preheat doesn't reach the Chosen Oven Temperature


I would first suspect the thermister (thermistor) or a low line voltage, weak control board relay etc.

But the service manuals will show you how to safely disassemble, test and repair the unit.

We have the service manuals for this model and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print them in case you don't have it.

The best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

Oven stop working while it was preheating to 450 degrees


Chances are the oven cavity thermostat has failed.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
