If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers for spare part supplies and Driver downloads (if applicable) as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.


If there is no web site, remove the old switch and find a good Radio Shack or electronics store and see if they can match it.

I hope this helps.

Oven works but after it has been cooking for a period it shuts the Electrical Safety Switch off. Restart & it just keeps happening.


Well it may be the breaker that the oven is connected to, overheating the switch and tripping it. Try replacing the breaker switch (main breaker box in the house rv) is the best thing, but you can place a small fan from say a old computer or laptop conected to a old cellphone charger, there both dc powered. Just make sure that when you fix it to the breaker switch you leave plenty of room for the switch to trip if it has to ' to avoid house fires'. I had to do this one year because the heater I plugged in was over loading my breaker and had to Jerry rig a old computer processor fan to keep it cool while heating that area of my house

Fan and light come on when door closed!


Door ailment may be a issue or the brackets that hold the switches maybe old and moving. Or wrong switch in wrong spot..

Powers off immediately after starting


My immediate reaction would be to cut your losses and buy a new unit as sooner or later you will run into a part that is no longer available.

Model JVM1630WB004. KW 1.58. 10 years old. No problems till now. Just stopped heating. Some burnt smell. Vented to outside thru duct. Everything clean. Is it fried? Also, cu. is not listed. What...


Check the door safety interlock safety switches for proper operation. If the switches are faulty, you can replace them. If you smelled something burning and it wasn't dinner, it could be the capacitor. You should have this dangerous electrical device serviced by a pro. The capacitor potentially stores up to 25,000 volts and may be lethal. The Cap is the silver can looking device inside with two or three wires on it. Expect to pay up to $150.00 for repair. Your machine is 10 years old, you may just want to replace it.

My 15 year-old RHEEM Warrior Model 71-40S forty gallon electric water heater is leaking, and the element also needs replaced. I am thinking it is likely time to get a new, energy-efficient model versus...


Rheem makes great products. Lowe's sells whirlpool brand and they are not all that bad for the money. I would buy something better than the budget 7 year warranty model though. My preferred choice is AO Smith. I would definitely replace your water heater if it is 15 years old- most don't go much longer than that, although mine is 27 years old and going strong! Please remember to make sure and extend your pressure relief valve down to within 6 inches of the floor when replacing the water heater as Code requires. A water heater blanket will also earn its keep in a short amount of time.

Samsung microwave -the electrical panel runs, the


it sounds like it one of your micro-switches inside that control the power to the doors, if one of the switches is bad, it would cut the power , the panenl will light, the turn table will work, the fan will turn on , but you will not get any heat at all, micro-switches run depending onthe unit from 5-10 bucks, when you open the unit you will see the one that is bad, is usually bent or the connector might be burn or melt, good luck..!

No power


That would probably be a bad secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount.

We have the full service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
