Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Goodmans Microwave CB23s-U ,been using it ok for 17 months and now it has stopped heating food. The door closes well, the light comes on the turntable revolves, and the countdown works. The heating red light flashes as it always does, so all works except the basic function ie heating. Tried all the various cook and defrost cycles, no heat. Is this a dead microwave?

    Thanks heatman for your time and suggestion. I tried all the suggestions in your posting, without going internal, nothing worked so fixed it by, a) chop off cable at exit from microwave, b) heave it on the local tip, c) buy a new one.
    Sad, but Goodmans and Currys refused to help as it was 4 months out of warranty. I think they need to review their warranty period, or manufacturing tolerances,as that comes awful close to being inside the period and costing them customer satisfaction.

    Unfortunately I see more and more of that....Hot wtaer heaters are now made to just get past the 5 or 6 year warranty period and then they leak...
    A/C compressors are no longer made to last forever, but just for X number of hours run time...

    There is no pride is workmanship anymore just people trying to make $$$ by giving the least amount possible...

    Yes, very sad...

Does not heat food-master relay reset, all electric OK (fan runs, time & all other settings show OK, turntable rotates), door closed tightly, control lock


THere are three possibilities, open magnetron "heats food" cracked high voltage diode, or a shorted high voltage capacitor.

Model KHMS155RSS microwave is not heating food after the maid service cleaned the microwave


Hello, does microwave have power? Plugged in etc, lights working on front? All microwaves have a safety backup, the door may press onto a latch which will allow the microwave to work, this is to ensure that if you open the door during cooking, it will stop immediately so you're not exposed to microwave radiation. Maid may have disrupted the mechanism for this purpose, make sure door latches are OK, and door closes smoothly, also try unplugging and then plug it in and turn it back on. Hope this may help..

The door switches are slightly out of alignment. If you run the microwave and shift the door up or down, the micro might begin working..
The control panel must be removed and the door switches adjusted. I would not suggest you doing this yourself, as it may affect the microwave leakage through the door gap.

Hi. I have samsung microwave oven GE83ZL two years old. I was out for a month. after i came back and starts the oven but its not working grill is ok but microwaves are not heating up the food ! oven works...


check the door safety interlock switches. if failed, they cannot tell the oven that the door is closed and if the door is open, the magnetron will not come on. remove the cover and find the small micro switches neat the door latch system. check them with a ohm meter with the door open ... then closed. of course, you are checking for continuity ...not voltage ... so unplug the oven before you start.

Possibly a shorted relay on the main timer board?? hum coming from transformer being powered with no fan running. With No fan you can hear it hum. shorted power relay on main board.

My spacemaker just stopped heating food. What do


This is a microwave, correct?

I suspect the door lock interface switch(es) are burned out. Unplug it, be mindful of the 25,000 volts in the silver thing. Check the micro switches (look where the door closes on the top right side, probably) two positions, normally open or normally closed. check them for proper operation.

Micro switches are the most common of microwave failures because most of us open the door while the machine is running causing arc at the switch and burning up the little contacts.

Turns on by itself and turntable does not rotate


You may have a control board issue. Thank God for safety switches.
This is a problem that an integrated circuit tech. can repair, but it may be costly.
Decide how much you want to put into this oven vs. buying a new one.

Contact me once you decide and I can help you find a service center.

Thank you,
