My Hotpoint Aquarius VTD20 will not start. The lights are on, the belt is tight on the drum. It sounds as if it is trying to work, however the drum does not turn around.

Hotpoint microwave only works a few seconds then shows all 8s in the display


Sounds like its time for a new microwave

You can probably buy a new one cheaper then fixing the old one

Most controls that display 888 something is shorted out on the controller.

Have you tried unplugging it for 5 minutes and plugging back in?

Hotpoint overrange microwave, all the lights and timers work not heating food. there is also a smell when trying to heat is this a common problem with this microwave?


It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Hotpoint RVM1435 when I push start button will not start unit?


Hello :

It could be bad door switch or loose door switch mount . 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 .


WARNING : A microwave oven is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock, even when it is unplugged. I strongly recommend you seek the assistance of an appliance repair technician when conducting any microwave oven repair .

good luck .

please rate !

Hotpoint microwave is loud.


your transformer windings are loose and the 60 cycle frequenct is setting up a mechanical vibration, you can try and look for anything loose inside the unit, but if the transformer windings get loose theres really no fix but to live with it

Hotpoint RVM1425BA-003 Microwave Oven Stovetop Light Does Not Work


The problem is almost certainly on the control panel, which we repair nationwide for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This often can affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inopoerable or stuck on.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and

disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
