It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

Kenwood K30CSS10, combination oven has stopped working. Used to heat some food when used later, light was on, turntable was stationary. Found a broken door latch. Is that the trouble?


If you had a broken latch,that latch was not closing a switch that needs to be closed to tell the unit it is safe to run. So yes start with broken latch.

Hi I am using kenwood microwave since last6 years.but now from last one year it suddenly started make sound while not in working and now it is not heating. Plz guide what to do


Time to throw it away. Microwave ovens can be dangerous if not working correctly. Micro-waves, (The actual waves themselves) can be lethal. Unless you really know what you are doing, do not under any circumstances dismantle the machine and switch it on. The cabinet of the machine is designed as a protective box and should stop random waves escaping and cooking anything else including you own insides. Generally Microwave ovens are uneconomical to repair, for the parts and labour you can buy a new one. Buy the most powerful you can. If you buy anything that is below 1000 Watts make sure it has a turn table. Remember that the more you place in a microwave oven, the longer it takes to cook. If you have a big family and you can afford it, you might like to think about a commercial oven 1600 - 1800 watts, that can cope well with large quantities well and will cook a tin of baked beans in less than a minute.

I have Kenwood KGTS23 microwave, it looks working but it stopped warming the food


The heart of any Microwave is a part that generates the actual Microwave radiation that heats the food and liquids, it is called the Magnetron, it is the most expensive part of the oven and unless the oven is under warranty it is cheaper to just replace the oven with a new one than to have the Magnetron replaced.
