Microwave is not make food hot


Hi.

The wave emitting part inside the microwave oven is called the magnetron. The waves emitted by the magnetron generate heat in food. When the microwave is running, turntable turns and light comes on but there is no heat it means that either the magnetron is faulty or the magnetron is not getting power. When the magnetron is not getting power parts such as the high voltage diode or capacitor must be tested or replaced. Testing and repair must be carried by a technician. Here some general troubleshooting: http://www.fixya.com/support/r2096491-microwave_works_normally_but_not_heat

The microwave does not heat up the food much. I pressed defraust the other day by mistake and i don't know if the microwave kept that function though I pressed cancel and start over. How do I make it...


YOU PROBABLY BLEW A FUSE? YOU CAN REPLACE THIS YOURSELF, BUT YOU WILL HAVE TO TAKE THE HOUSING COVER OFF USING A SCREW DRIVER..TO GET TO THIS FUSE...PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR MICROWAVE UNPLUGGED WHILE DOING THIS!

CHECK YOUR FUSE TO SEE, IF IT BLOWN, THE WIRES IN SIDE WILL NOT BE CONNECTED OR YOU WILL SEE THAT IS BLOWN BY THE COLOR (BURNT)

YOU CAN GET ANOTHER FUSE AT A LOCAL RADIO SHACK, OR ELECTRICAL SUPPLY STORE! THEY ARE VERY UN-EXPENSIVE TO PURCHASE, (BRING YOUR OLD FUSE WITH YOU TO MAKE SURE TO GET THE RIGHT ONE.)

HOPE THIS HELPS!

The microwave seems to be operating on reduced power. It seems to be transmitting a single wave, as only one part of the food is heating and the rest remains cold. It was repaired 4 months ago and had new...


If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off. Check the wave guide covers, if food had deposited
then it must be checked or replaced.

See link: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/microwave/a/5/1146/how-to-replace-a-microwave-guide-cover.html

Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on, use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely

Why does food get hard after cooking or reheating in a microwave


It's basically a loss of moisture during the cooking process, to avoid this in a standard oven cook on a lower temp for longer and cover with foil....in the microwave, drop the power setting and always reheat or cook with the food cover with a microwave safe cling wrap or microwave specific cookware with lids.
Hope this helps.

Goldstar ma-1012W microwave oven doesn't heat food


Sounds like a bad magnetron (the device that produces the microwaves) - if the microwave is over 6-8 years old, it's usually not worth fixing.

This would most likely caused by a door switch. It is either not being activated by the door not closing tight enough or the switch itself has failed
