Question about Microwave Ovens

Open Question

Hi, I have an Ewave KOT 152UB microwave bought in 2002. The problem is that the buttons don't always respond to pressing. Sometimes they work fine, and other times nothing will get them to respond. Is this worth fixing, and how? Thanks so much. Lynn Rust

Sounds like some metal is involved somehow. If the unit otherwise works, replace the damaged parts. Test with a cup filled with water.

We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so.

At our Web site, you can get details of our service, plus we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

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.

The lights can can be inoperable or stuck on or no bright, too. Sometimes this will similarly affect the exhaust fan operation or inside light, too.Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

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

SOURCE: ewave panel is on lock

As per the owner's manual:

The oven operation can be locked to prevent the microwave from accidentally being turned on. All oven functions can be locked.

To Set: Touch and hold the CANCEL/OFF Pad for three seconds. The Display shows “LOCKED” and the oven beeps.

To Cancel: Touch and hold the CANCEL/OFF Pad for three seconds. “LOCKED” disappears from the Display and the oven beeps.

If this does not work, then try a hard reset: Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

If it still fails, you probably have a problem with the controller.

We regularly repair such control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee. It may cost a little more if you need parts, such as a new keypad.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

SOURCE: Replace handle on Ewave microwave

Hi,

A common Guide that would help you :-

http://www.applianceaid.com/oven-hinges.html

Generic Procedure on most of the Ovens :-

Set the door on the ground with the hinges facing up. You will need to push down on the hinges and extend them by hand. It's probably best to put something in the palm of your hand like a handle of a screwdriver so that you can push on the hinge and open it up (you will still have to push hard). When you open the hinge up you will see a tiny hole appear about the size of a pin head. You will need to stick a screw or something inside this hole so that the hing will not close again. When you have both hinges locked out you can then reinstall your door at about a 45 degree angle. Open the door up all the way and remove the screws or pins you placed through the door and then you can shut the door all the way again.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Ewave over the stove microwave fuse blows when I


The light is the only thing that comes on when you open door. You either have a shorted door switch (Micro switch) or a shorted bulb. You have either a shorted bulb or bad socket. From my experience, it's the bulb. Just because it may seem to start to come on when you open the door, it's most likely bad. At least it not expensive.

Replace OTR Microwave


Thanks for responding. It is a EWave KOT-152UW. I think EWave is part of Magic Chef. I think it is the door switch. When I opened the microwave, the circuit breaker tripped. I reset the circuit breaker, and it worked for several days, but the last time, the microwave went dead. The reason I want to use the same bracket is it has through the wall (horizontal) venting to the outside, and I am not keen on trying to cut more holes.
