You may be able to just use some adhesive felt or cork pads as feet, or perhaps I am not fully understanding the issue


Hope this helps. If not, get back to me and I may be able to help more.

Both oven lights blown and fan not working


If you've noticed that your oven is not heating up, there could be a problem with your oven fan thermostat.
its simple to check :

1.
Open oven door and locate the back plate, which can be found at the rear
of the appliance. Remove the back plate from the oven fan (it should be held in place by between two and six screws). The oven fan is located behind the back plate.
2.
Examine the oven fan element and the fan blades (they are exposed once the back plate has been removed). If there are noticeable signs of burning, blowing, bulging or splitting in an area of the oven fan, you can tell where the problem is coming from. It is also common for there to be no visible signs of a problem. This allows you to determine whether or not the oven fan can be replaced from inside, or if it is necessary to enter the back of the appliance.
3.
Remove screws from element and disconnect wires if screw heads are showing. This is commonly the case, as it is unusual to have to further disassemble the oven. After the screws are removed, the element becomes detached from the oven. Use caution to not accidentally pull out electrical wires that are connected to the element.
4.
Take the rear cover off, which is held in place by multiple screws. After that, you should be able to see the wiring harness, fan motor and the components of oven fan element. Parts of the fan element are near the round fan motor, which is located at the center of the oven. There are two electrical connections and one earth wire. Take note of the location that the earth wire is placed, because it needs to be restored to the same position.
5.
Remove the oven fan element. Check the element again for obvious signs of damage. If there are no apparent markings, check the oven with an electrical test meter or a continuity tester. After replacing oven fan element, return all connections and covers to their original positions.

This should help you up to an extent to check it in case of any assistance please revert back.

The door on my bosch hmt8655gb wil not shut please can tell me the best way to repair rob


Door catches.

One of the latches may have broken off and is not lifting the other latch clear of the housing. Remove from any power source, remove the cover of the cabinet. Slacken off the clamp mechanism and ease the clamp over the guide to allow the door to open. When a new door lever is in place, the door may be easily adjusted by slackening off the screws that clamp the door catch/actuators in place whilst holding the door closed and then tightening the screws. The rear of the door may be adjusted by slackening the lower door hinge screws and adjusting as required.
I hope that helps.

How to change microwave bulb


Hello,
PLEASE UNPLUG YOUR MICROWAVE!
Remove the two screws that holds grill. They are located at the edge of the unit. Once the screws are out, rotate the grill forward from the top. It will pop right out.

Once the screws are out, rotate the grill forward from the top. The grill should pop right out.
Locate a small access cavity on the left.
Remove the screw that is located near the front of the microwave door.
Lift up the sheet metal floor to access the bulb. The bulb is located under the sheet metal "floor" on the left.
Place a flash light on the microwave floor and shine the light in the light area. This will help you see better when you replace your bulb.
Look for a small shiny reflector that hides the bulb. Use your two fingers to squeeze it a bit. Making sure not to bend it.
The bulb connection should come right out.
After you replaced the bulb, re secure the reflector and the sheet metal floor with the single screw. Test the bulb by plugging in your microwave.
Once you see that the bulb works. Unplug your microwave again and re attach the front grill. You are now done.
Hope this help in solving the problem, take care.....

Replace the buttons on a kitchenaid microwave Khhs179lss-5


First, you need to uninstall the microwave (MW) from the cabinet by removing the screws that hold it in place at the top. Open the cabinet doors above the MW to locate the screws.
You will need someone to help you at this point in removing the screws and dropping the MW down. Be sure and unplug the MW before you remove the screws.
Next, you need to take the cover/shell off by locating and removing screws A/R. They are mostly across the back and side bottom.
From there on out, you should be able to methodically find and locate the various fasteners that will get to the button pad.

Turntable motor or support/coupler failure.


Isn't that actually an R1461A?

When you try to turn it by hand (as in the video) do you hear the motor whine? Is there resistance? Or does it just turn freely?

The hole in the turntable support should either be round with a flat side or a cross shape. If that's damaged, it won't work.

In some cases, the legs of the support get too hot and when the weight (food) is removed, they bend downward in relation to the hub.

I have solved this problem in the past by carefully heating the area where the legs meet the hub, using a gas stove flame or a torch.

Then I place it on a flat surface, weighted down so as to hold the legs so they will cool in the correct position.

If you have to do it more than once, the support should be replaced.

You can see if the motor is turning by removing the support and placing something wooden or plastic into the hole and see if it turns when you cook.

If you replace the support or motor, you should also replace the "packing" which is a rubber grommet.

You can find an exploded view here, and the parts list is here, but the best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

To replace the motor, you need to remove the bottom panel of the oven, then remove the motor screws.

Panasonic microwave ne1446 fault 33


F33 or F34 codes may be triggered by either excessive heat within the oven or poor grounding of either the temp sensor or the controller (DPU) board. Check the following:

a) Clogged air filter (not applicable to OCS models)

b) Obstruction of the exhaust duct or insufficient ventilation

c) Defective thermal sensor (should read 30 – 70 kohm in room temperature)

d) Grounding of the thermal sensor (possible oxidation)

e) Poor connection (oxidation) at CN4 connector (PRO-1 models only)

f) Poor or no ground at the controller (DPU) board – ensure that all screws securing the board are in place

g) Missing screw(s) that secure the escutcheon to the frame (OCS models only)

h) If all steps above check OK, the error(s) may be caused by defective controller (DPU) board

Replace light in overrange GE microwave


Advantum 120 over range microwave - with burned out interior bulb: Remove top fron grill cover -- held byu 2-3 screws on top. Remove sheetmetal plate that lies parallel to top of unit, just to the right of the square plastic porting on the far left of the unit. The sheet metal plating is about 12" wide and 8" deep and is shaped like 2 overlapping rectangles. It is held in place by 1-2 screws. (I don't recall if you needed to remove other plastic grid on right front -- I did, but I was still searching for the bulb). The bulb is located about 5" from the left side and about 2" in from the front, covered by a small sheetmetal box. THe bulb looks like the little halogen bulbs used in low-voltage outdoor lights - but is slightly larger - DO NOT REPLACE WITH THAT KIND OF BULB). Remove the one screw holding the box, unplug the bulb and find a replacement. Can't tell you where to get a bulb -- that's what I'm doing next. Good luck.
