No heat generated in microwave or convection oven mode


I just read that starting the microwave as usual and then slightly pressing in the handle (you can hear the heater(?) come on will make the heat come on. Tried it and it works. My repairman told me it needed a new magnetron ($700) but that was totally wrong. I will be trying another repairman to replace handle mechanism.

Microwave worked this morning and now not.....made no noise just stopped heating.


HELLO.

The solution is to diagnose the magnetron as explained below.

* 1 Fill a mug with room temperature water from your kitchen sink.

* 2 Place the mug of water on the glass cooking plate inside the microwave.

* 3 Set the microwave on "High" for one minute and press "Start." You should hear the magnetron hum while it is working.

* 4 Remove the mug carefully from the oven by its handle. The magnetron is working properly if the water is hot or warm. The next step repair or a replacement of magnetron if the water is still cold.

Thanks.

The microwave heats up fine but the blower motor does not come on right away. After a couple of minutes you can hear the motor start - stop and at the end finally works fine.


rheire could be a number of reasons for this problem i would start by checking the connections to the blower motor may just be loose connectors that dont make a good conection until heated up then check for power to the motor when unit is opperating if none it will be in the control panel if power is present replace motor.

Our Viking VMOS200 just stopped working. The lights and the countdown timer work, but no fan noise and no turntable spin.


it has nothing to do with the magnetron. first you have to fix step one. then you will know if the magnetron is bad. its one or two of the primary switches on the bottom of the switch tower. usually with these mw if you dont press cancel to stop the mw, and you just push the latch to stop it, those wires heat up and cause the microswitches to burn and loose proper contacts.

put a cup of water in the mw. set it to one minute and as its counting down. push on the latch LIGHTLY, as to not fully open the door and you will hear the magnetron kick on and the turn table start to rotate

I just had a tech come to my house and he told me that I need a new glow plug, It's the box to the right of the flame. Looks easy to replace, his visit took 5 minutes and it cost me 143.95 (this doesn't include the cost for the part or to have him come fix it, that will be sometime next week) so if you can get the part and do it yourself I would suggest that.

Microwave won't turn on


When you say that the microwave won't turn on, can I assume that you mean that the food does not heat up! If that is the case, the problem lies with the magnetron circuit. This circuit consists of the transformer, rectifier and the magnetron, the part that generates the microwaves to heat the food. If it is the magenetron, then it probally not worth fixing since the cost to purchase the magnetron is almost as much as a new oven. To diagnose if it is the magnetron that has failed, when you turn on the oven, do you hear a louder that normal hum or buzzing sound? If that is the case, then it means that the magnetron is shorted and needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

VMOC205 SS VIKING CONVECTION MICROWAVE


Hi this is tech crazy,he solution to the problem is as follows

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

The cost of the magnatron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnatron, they replace the whole oven.

There is a possiblity that the circuit that provides power to the magnatron 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 appart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Viking microwave has digital lights but will not turn on to cook?


Hi the problem will be with the touch panel membrane or the controller. if yoiu can hear a click when the start button is pressed then the touch panel is OK asnd you should look at the controller which can be replaced as a unit or if you are up to it it's probably the main cook relay that has failed.
