Microwave timer works but will motor will not run/cook.


If everything works on the unit, but you do not receive any heat or possibly the turntable does not turn you have a faulty magnetron (controls heat) and a faulty motor (controls turntable). You would require service on the unit, if parts are available. Some microwaves are so small in cubic foot size, that manufacturer's do not have parts available for purchase/repairs.

The unit will count down, light will come on, the unit will not heat nor will the turn table run. I jumped out the door switch and the unit will run, however it powers downs.. and runs slow... Any ideas??


HELLO.

That the microwave will not heat solution.

1 Make sure the door is closed. If the door is not closed tight, the microwave will not function.Sometimes food will get stuck in the door and prevent the latch from working. Use the paper towel to get the food out, then close the door carefully and listen for the latch to click.

2 Check the power sources. First, make sure the microwave is plugged in; the plug may have shifted or slipped partway out of the socket. If it is plugged in and still does not work, voltage test the outlet the microwave is plugged into. If you are not getting a reading, the breaker is probably blown. Reset the breaker for that outlet in your home's circuit breaker box.

3 Reset the microwave breaker. Take the back cover of the microwave off with a screwdriver. Inside you will find a motor. Most microwave motors have a small red reset button on them. Hit that button. Your microwave should work again if the breaker was the issue.


That the microwave turntable will not run solution.


Needed equipments are:
  • Screwdriver
  • New belt
  • Continuity tester
  • Bearing lube
    • 1 Inspect the turntable base wheels and guides. If they are gummed up with food or
    • other gunk, they will not turn and the turntable will not rotate. Clean as needed.

    • 2 Remove the microwave case by unscrewing the casing screws with your screwdriver. Locate the turntable motor which will be directly beneath the oven floor.

    • 3 Inspect the belt that connects the motor to the rotating table. If the belt is broken, replace it.

    • 4 Touch the probes of a continuity tester to the electrical contacts on the motor. If the tester lights up, the motor windings are good, which means the motor is functional. If there is no light, the motor needs to be replaced.

    • 5 Check the wires leading from the cord to the motor itself. Look for any breaks in the wire, or a wire that has been pulled off of any electrical connection. Any connection that has been compromised can be soldered back into place, but if the cord is damaged at all, it needs to be replaced.

    • 6 Attempt to spin the motor by hand if the continuity is good and the belt is in place. It should spin freely, but if it is difficult or doesn't move at all, you will need to lubricate the bearing. Either apply spray or bearing lube to the motor axles to solve this problem, and allow the motor to spin freely once again.

    • THANKS.

It may be your heating element. You will need to see if the element is getting power. Check for damage to the element, since the motor is running and the fan

Over the last week the light on the inside of the microwave has dimmed and now it doesn't come on and the turntable doesn't work. Will replacing the light bulb correct the problem? Somehow the microwave...


I think you very possibly have a 2 part problem. Firstly, replace the lamp assembly, then replace the turntable motor. If you have a little electrical knowledge, place a tester on the turntable wires when microwave is on and check for voltage.Remember, run microwave as if you were cooking (Place water in unit when switched on).If there is power, then the motor is faulty.

Ticking sound when running microwave


It may be a noise coming from the turntable motor or stirrer motor, if so equipped.

If it's not too loud, I wouldn't worry about it unless it gets louder or you get further symptoms.
