Warning! To avoid personal injury or even death, always disconnect your appliance from its power source--that is, unplug it or break the connection at the circuit breaker or fuse box--before you do any troubleshooting or repair work on your appliance. Also, because some components may have sharp edges, use caution while working on your appliance.

This may possibly be a door switch issue. The door has to interlock 3 switches to provide safety and performance functions. If the performance function switch fails or is misaligned, it can cause these symptoms. Occasionally you may encounter a "sticky" door switch that may correct itself with a little harder closure of the door. If you are not familiar with how a microwave oven works, I would suggest a professional repairman look at this problem as it involves safety related issues.

If my assistance helped resolve this issue, please show your appreciation by rating how effective my advice was in resolving this issue.
Thank you,

    I am sorry the information did not help resolve this issue.



    Can you be a little moore definitive in the description of your complaint. Example, can you clarify "runs a little bit", may be runs 10 seconds, 1 minute, etc., and shuts off? Is it even running long enough to heat food?



    You may have a cooling fan issue if this is the case. Just trying to helpm but I can only offer you information based on the description of your complaint.

The magnetron is the main part that gives out microwaves to heat the food. As the convection bit is working this points towards the microwave bits.
The magnetron has a main diode, fuse and transformer to run the microwave bit, any of these could be faulty. A word of warning though, there are extremely high voltages inside microwaves, even when unplugged in the main capacitor. Also to repair this section you will need to be a fully qualified engineer to even order parts for this.

If you try to heat something for a minute , the microwave will turn on for about 15 seconds then shut off . It doesn't even seem to warm the food.


It may need a reset. You can do that by unplugging the power for a minute or two, then plugging it back in and setting the clock.

If it still fails, you may have a failing cooling fan or a problem on the control circuit board.

I have not gotten a solution for this problem. I thought your website said one of the experts would respond for free. Seems like that must have been a hoax to give you the opportunity to sell me something. Shame on you!

I am still waiting for the free assistance, as advertised.
