Question about Vacuums

Open Question

Sylvania microwave oven model # SM81012. The unit turns on, timer counts down, etc, but the unit does not heat the food. I think there's a problem with the way the door latch catches. But I don't know if/how I can access it.

we will definitely need at bare minimum a picture in order to provide any assistance with a specific product control feature like your talking about finding instructions manuals would be very easy if you were able to give us anything more than a 1970's ge microwave alot of the time people would keep the manuals for appliances in the kitchen as they normally get passed with any warranty's to the new owner


hope this helps

Please be extremelly careful with microwaves, they produce radiation. My best advise is to take it to a repaar shop and ask for a quote. Microwaves are so cheap nowadays that maybe is better to buy a new one if the repair cost over 50% of the price of a new one.

Hello, two things. The mega-tron tube is gone south, or the HV diode is open/shorted to ground which will cause to open. If the microwave meta-tron tube is bad then recyle your microwave oven and buy a new microwave oven. One can buy a new microwave oven cheaper than buying a microwave tube. GB...stewbison

Microwave cooking time tip


Do not be in a rush to eat the food when your buzzer sounds. Remember, that the way the microwave functions is to let the food sit for a few minutes when it is done cooking. The food continues cooking and distributes the heat evenly throughout your food. Test for doneness after the standing time.

Cleaned inside of microwave with all purpose cleaner, now it runs but does not heat up food.


Remove the plug from the power point and make sure that you completely dry the inside of the microwave with a clean dry cloth , keep the door open for drying. If by any chance the liquid or the water has seeped into the magnetron port then it might have clogged and damaged the unit.
Please check this section inside the chamber and dry this soft spot fully before you can try to switch on the microwave.
If this wont work then check the fuse inside the unit and the thermal cut off switch if this has tripped.

Hi,
  1. Push the power cord all the way into the outlet in case it became loose and is causing the problem. If the microwave still isn't working, check for a blown circuit fuse, and repair it.
  2. Step 2 Check that the controls on the microwave are programmed correctly according to the owner's manual. If they aren't, program them.
  3. Step 3 Close the microwave door firmly. Touch the cook function on the Start Pad, not the timer. Check if the microwave works. If not, continue to step 4.
  4. Step 4 Program the Power Level correctly. If it's not programmed properly, the microwave will cook the food too quickly or too slowly.
  5. Step 5 Use only microwave safe dishes. Make sure food is evenly shaped and defrosted before placing it in the Amana Radarange microwave.
Thanks.

Kenmore microwave model #665.61612100 is buzzing and not heating any food. what is the cause?


It sound as though the magnitron is going. This is basically the heart of the whole unit. It will cost the same to replace the part as it will to replace the unit.
