Question about Sanyo Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

My new Sanyo Microwave 900 W oven cooks ok for about 10 minutes. By then the base plate is really hot, as is the actual oven space. When I try to put something else in to cook - veggies in plastic bag - the veggies in the bag stay cold, but the oven gets hotter. If I wait till the oven and the base plate cool down, then I can cook again. I have had microwave ovens for 20 years and never experienced a problem like this. Any clues?

Exterior of oven , top and both sides gets very hot to touch, when cooking +- 10 minutes or more the last couple of days; no Error ( E41/42/45 or 47 are being displayed. Fan is normal, functions: OK


There could be food or oil buildup around the door frame which will absorb some of the radiant and microwave energy whilst cooking. Give it all a good clean and see if that helps. If everything else is working properly, it may be a problem with the cooling fan. Microwave ovens have a "stirrer fan" inside the roof or rear of the cooking area to disperse the microwaves and some convection / microwave ovens also have a cooling fan which assists in dissipating heat within the cabinet.

How do I know wattage for 1974 recipes and convert cooking time to todays microwave (1200)


A 1974 Microwave Oven is probably not putting out more than 600 watts. You need to do a power test to determine it's actual power output. Place a 2 cup glass measuring cup with exactly 500 mL of cold water. Record the starting temperature of the water. Run the microwave on 100% power for 18 seconds, using a watch or timer, not the timer on the unit. Take the water out and stir it to make sure that there are no hot or cold spots in the measuring cup. Record the new temperature. Example: 78.4-64.1= 14.3.
Multiply 14.3 X 38.75= 554.125. The power output is 554 watts IEC. If the recipe is set for a 1200 watt unit, and your is almost 600 watts, obviously, you would double the cook time. Since this is rough, you need to experiment a bit. If the cook time is 10 minutes, check your product at 8 minutes. Be sure to push the stop button before you open the door when it is in cook mode. This will save wear and tear on door switches and leave the remaining cook time on the timer. Let me know how this works out for you..

Sanyo em-c 1800 sparking inside at top


That's not good at all....

check to make sure there isn't any food at the top of the microwave, also, if your microwave allows maybe try turning down the wattage when you cook such as cook on medium or Low wattage.

Also, you may need to just get a new microwave.

New sanyo microwave, steam or smoke coming out when cooking from 1 minute


Steam is OK as it means whatever is in there is boiling furiously, it may need turning off at that point!
Smoke though means it has gone too far. Check the cooking times used and the recommended cooking times on the packet along with the adjustment for the power of your oven.

Microwave lights up plate turns something hums inside but the inside of the microwave never produces heat.


Sounds pretty normal but the inside is not supposed to get hot - only the food is.

Try heating a half glass of water for 1 minute if it gets hot... its working - if not then the actual microwave generating device inside has probably died.
In that case buy a new microwave oven as the cost of parts and labour to repair is usually more than cost of buying a new one.,

Light comes on and turntable moves but not cooking Model EM-G4775S 900 watts


Fuse blown? Needs to make high voltage for the magnetron. A blown fuse usually means trouble in the high voltage system (a shorted HV diode or maybe a bad stirrer [metal fan-like device] bearing which is located just above the interior case under the waveguide assembly). If suspect, replace the stirrer as a unit. If fuse looks ok, maybe bad door interlock switch or not being operated by door closure.

F-2 keypad shorted


Ok, the ratings are figured on how long it will take the microwave oven to cook a specific meal(meat potato)etc.. They use that type of data to figure the ratings based on actual wattage and size and time in time out ratio. The actual technical ratings are not figured at all. its all based on cooking time verses meal size. Concerning this repair, this is a normal repair quote and, the actual charge is quite common with this type of repair. The actual part price is right on the mark and, the labor is usually 46 dollars and hour with a 2 hour minimum. I would defiantly cut my losses and purchase a new unit. I'm sure a new unit can be purchased at a lower price than the actual repair fee.

Sanyo microwave EMS667W, diff high power ratings


A couple of things: If the dinner is in an aluminum pan, DON'T put it in your oven. Typically, high power units need about 3-5 minutes to heat a dinner so you should have heated it through. The power default is usually full power. Usually, there is a minutes button that should give you incremental minutes for programming.

Try using a standard nonmetallic cup (beaker) and fill it with water. Heat for 2 minutes. The water should be boiling hot. If not, your oven is not doing it right.
