Question about Bosch Microwave Ovens

2 Answers

My Bosch microwave (E no: HMT AU/01) is approximately two years old and has ceased to function! There is power - when set on, say, 1000w for 1 minute, it will activate. All will appear and sound normal and the counter will count the time down on the display. However, after approximately 20 seconds (irrespective of the cooking time set), it will switch off and revert to the clock time on the display. The contents are still cold, which seems to imply that there has been no microwave activity. Help!

This is a internal protection mechanism which turns the device off incase a problem is detected. you will have to take it to a tech for a inspection as we can't really do that over the internet.

Hi,

It would appear that for problems similar to yours, the solution was to replace the magnetron. Additionally you may want to check the actual part number and compare prices with Bosch original and those made for and by other manufacturers. You may find it to your advantage to scout around since those meant for other comparable brands are relatively cheaper.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

There are no spares listed for the power button. You may want to see if it came loose as opposed to broke. That means take it apart. However, that unit is not made anymore.

If for some reason you don't still have the installation instructions, their support site should allow you to either download or order a set.
If you can't find their site, try the dealer from whom you purchased the oven.

With all due respect, what are you doing to it?
If you use it with nothing in the cavity, that will kill the magnetron otherwise it will last for years and years.
Very unusual and Bosch is a well respected name.
If there is a probem with the oven, Bosch will replace it so take it up with Bosch.

Panasonic NN- A712 combination Microwave 1000w - Switches off after 20 seconds


The 22 seconds is the giveaway.

In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.

I would recommend that you contact your nearest Panasonic-authorized servicer.

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