Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Hi, My microwave has stopped heating. The light is on and it is rotating however, the food is not being microwaved althought the inside gets warm. There are two red symbols that are now lit up on the screen, one looks like a pot with steam and the other is a square with diagonal waved lines running through it (I guess it is a microwave symbol). I have tried turning it off at the mins to reset it but no luck. Thanks.

It is probably a burned magnetron, sorry to tell you that a magnetron is the heart of the device (it is what produces the MICROWAVES) so it is almost the price of a new microwve oven.

You could ave it cheked could be just a fuse as well...

Good luck!

My microwave stopped heating food. The rotational works fine and the light comes on. But it will not get worm


internal fuse or the magnetron has failed. You need a service engineer. There is no user access to the inside, too dangerous.

Siemens HF26066GB plate is moving when door closed and not moving when open


Have a shop look at this---there usually is a recessed safety switch inside the jam that will prevent the unit from working with door open--sounds like the problem may be with it.

Microwave does not heat food placed in the center of the turntable. Leaves a cold spot in the middle of the food.


This is normal. That's why I always recommend to my customers that the food be placed slightly off-center on the turntable. An analogy I refer to is stirring paint: If you stir paint with a stick by simply rotating the stick in the center of the can, it's far less effective than pulling the stick around an imaginary circle halfway bewteen the center and the edge.
