Question about Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

I have a Siemens TK 70 N 01 Nespresso Machine. I have used it for about 3 years. My problem is as under: I was away on a holiday so I had switched it off. When I switched it on after my return, the window does show "Standbye". However when I press the buton to get it ready, the mahine does not go on to "Ready" mode. I tried switching off, pulling off the plug from wall and restarted after 10 minutes but without success. What can I do?

    Thanks Caroldon. My machine is a Nespresso Coffee Machine and not a microwave. However I will try keeping it on for a long time and revert.

    Thanks. I kept the machine on overnight and it worked in the morning!

    I am grateful for your suggestion

  • Kishore Mariwala Nov 14, 2010

Two possibilities are there in your case and I had put some tips on the care needed when you go for a break. The first can be that the microwave could have been infested with some insects/ cockroaches that would have secreted or left marks on the main board to bring about some dampness resulting in these erractic faults.
Secondly if the power was unplugged it would have made the set sit in low temperature for a long time as you had the power On all the time while be at home. this must have created moisture and fault condition.
hence the remedy seems to take the microwave, remove plug, remove the top lid panels and look inside for any signs of insects or dampness. If so clean the unit, remove the electronic panel(PCB) use some petrol to wash the board only, perfectly clean , DRY well with a heater and reset.
Put the Micro wave ON for several hours and try with a cup of water to test.
If not please respond.

    Sorry, the first part of the question was not seen on my view. But this tip can apply to any kitchen device.Try to access the control panel use a hair dryer to blow out hot air, clean and reset-- make sure the power is off while the set is dismantled. Good luck!

Microwave oven - switching on involuntarly.


Not to make light, but most broken items were sound at one point in time. With the price for new small microwaves running less than $100.00 it is likely not cost effective to repair unless there is a known easy fix.

Hi I am using kenwood microwave since last6 years.but now from last one year it suddenly started make sound while not in working and now it is not heating. Plz guide what to do


Time to throw it away. Microwave ovens can be dangerous if not working correctly. Micro-waves, (The actual waves themselves) can be lethal. Unless you really know what you are doing, do not under any circumstances dismantle the machine and switch it on. The cabinet of the machine is designed as a protective box and should stop random waves escaping and cooking anything else including you own insides. Generally Microwave ovens are uneconomical to repair, for the parts and labour you can buy a new one. Buy the most powerful you can. If you buy anything that is below 1000 Watts make sure it has a turn table. Remember that the more you place in a microwave oven, the longer it takes to cook. If you have a big family and you can afford it, you might like to think about a commercial oven 1600 - 1800 watts, that can cope well with large quantities well and will cook a tin of baked beans in less than a minute.

On our Panasonic the genius sensor 1200w microwave the bulb burned out so replaced. After replaced turned light switch on both bulbs turned on and right away one bulb burned out and now the switch will not...


Mine burned out within a month. Probably due to the poor design of the machine which forces you to slam the door to get it to shut.
My biggest concern is the under counter lightbulbs it has burned out in my kitchen over the last year. I wonder how much leaking this thing really gives off. Moving in a few weeks and will be throwing this cancer machine out.

Lost directions - how to descale keurig ?


Hello, Here is a tip i wrote, see if this helps you.



Have you ever wondered, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?' First lets us understand what is exactly is scaling. The build up of minerals inside the hot parts of your coffee machine or espresso machine is commonly called lime scale. When lime scale builds up inside the Espresso machine, it slows down the water flow, reduces the boiler capacity and can prevent your coffee machine from working properly. To keep your Espresso machine operational at full order, it is important to descale it every three months. The time intervals between descaling depend upon many factors. Quality of your water and the amount of water running through the machine are the two main factors that decide the frequency at which you should descale your Espresso machine. The more you your machine, more often should you descale it. In some cities, in conjunction with a water filter you can use your coffee machine for a year or more without descaling at all. If you use less water by drinking espressos you'll need to descale less often than if you make cappuccinos.


Descaling products are widely available from stores that sell coffeemakers and espresso machines. Be sure that the product you buy to descale your Espresso machine is intended for this specific use only. Before you descale your Espresso machine, always unplug it and make sure that it is cold. Also, never immerse the appliance in water and nor should you use abrasive cleaning products or scouring materials on any part of your Expresso machine. In case your Espresso machine does not come with a instruction guide or booklet, then use a proper citric acid based descaling solution designed for espresso machines. This should be mixed and prepared as per the instructions on the bottle or packet. Once your Espresso machine has been descaled properly you would not be left wondering, 'how do I descale my expresso machine?', treat yourself to a great cup of coffee. Some popular models of Espresso machines are Krups EA8080 Espresseria Automatic, DeLonghi Magnifica EAM3200S, Krups Nespresso CitiZ & Milk XN 7106 Fire-engine red, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5400, DeLonghi PrimaDonna ESAM6600, DeLonghi Magnifica ESAM4200S, DeLonghi Perfecta ESAM5500 and Magimix Nespresso Citiz M190.

We have an 8 year old Alessi Nespresso machine, and it is leaking water at the base. It seems to leak only when the machine is in use. There is not any water at the base of the water container, so i am...


I have the same model, same age, same problem. It appears to be the seal between the metal heating coils, and the plastic switch that selects steam or coffee. Possibly caused by no cleaning the injector hole with the tool provided with machine (which causes a lot of back pressure). On mine, the screw that holds the switch to the heater has corroded and can not be unscrewed, so not possible to access rubber seal, and repair. May be tricky since this is plastic sealed to hot metal with a rubber gasket. So fo now, i unscrewed the black base plate on the bootom, and set the Alessi in a tray. THen just wipe up water after use.

We have an Engineer coming around for the third time this week. Appliance is under two years old but keeps blowing out when we cook rice for 20 minutes or more. was told it might be ventillation problem...


Possible that the magnetron, the capacitor is weak or defective.
It will be good to choose a low heat program to try and see if the fuse will stay, if so the magnetron has errors.
It will be good to post a complaint to the official customer care of Siemens to find a solution.

All sounds and looks fine but no heating going on this 5 y.o. samsung microwave. If it is door switch (any one of 3 I believe) how to check or if magnetron I'd think I'd have to throw away...Advice?


It's most likely the magnatron. If it sounds good it's not the switches, transformer or diode. If you still have the book for it, a lot of magnatrons are covered under warranty for 5 years. Unless it's a real nice microwave, it's usually going to cost $100 for a mag and nowdays it's almost cheaper to get a new one. Good luck

Microwave stopped working


to indutolia

The original problem was probably a bad turntable motor, which is pretty easy to replace.

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

Now I'd say you have a bad door switch (whether upper or lower depends on the model number) or a problem with the door switch mount.

This is a pretty simple problem to fix, too: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/doorsw.txt

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.

to lostonisland - Your problem is different enough that it should be a separate post. Please include your brand and model number when you repost.
