Question about Frigidaire (PL36PC50EC) Stainless Steel Kitchen Hood

Frigidaire Microwave Not Heating?

We have a Frigidaire "by Electrolux" microwave manufactured in Nov. 2003. We puchased it from Sears Dec.2005. Yesterday it stopped heating. All displays, lights, sounds, etc see to be fine. But you put food in and they barely get warm. I put a cup of coffee in for two minute intervals, about four times and it barely got warm. Any suggestions? Are microwaves worth repairing?

I dont think they make them like they use to. My dad still has a Magic Chef that he bought approx. 1983. Works like a champ.

If any one can offer advice it would be greatly appreciated as we are trying to sell our home and relocate out of state.

Sounds like a magnetron problem. Nowadays ,it's cheaper to purchase a new one. They're more costly to repair.

Frigidaire Mod: FGMV174KFB Door won't latch


Good Morning Friend,

I understand the door will not latch on your Frigidaire microwave, model# FGMV174KFB. Typically, this would not be a do it yourself repair, as you are working with your microwave, and there are no step by step repair instructions. I suggest contacting your local authorized technician for further assistance. They have been trained on your appliance and should be able to fix the latch on your door with ease. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Tip

Determining the Age of Your Maytag Appliance


This advice applies to all appliances manufactured by Maytag. Determining the manufactured date of most appliances is accomplished by looking at the SERIAL NUMBER. On Maytag appliances this is determined by the following method:

The LAST two letters in the serial number identifies the date code.

Example: 123456FY

The 1st Letter is the YEAR.

A – 1978/2002
B – 1966/1990
C – 1979/2003
D – 1967/1991
E – 1980/2004
F – 1968/1992
G – 1981/2005
H – 1969/1993
J – 1982/2006
K – 1970/1994
L – 1983/2007
M – 1971/1995
N – 1984/2008
P – 1972/1996
Q – 1985/2009
R – 1973/1997
S – 1986/2010
T – 1974/1998
U – 1987/2011
V – 1975/1999
X – 1988/2012
Y – 1976/2000
Z – 1977/2001

The 2nd Letter is the MONTH

A – JAN
B – JAN
C – FEB
D – FEB
E – MAR
F – MAR
G – APR
H – APR
J – MAY
K – MAY
L – JUN
M – JUN
N – JUL
P – AUG
Q – JUL
R – SEP
S – AUG
T – OCT
U – SEP
V – NOV
W – OCT
X – DEC
Y – NOV
Z – DEC

NOTE: Some later model Maytag appliances are manufactured by Whirlpool. The serial numbers may be in a different format. Check the MODEL number for any of the following prefixes:

106, 110, 198, 562, 664, 665.

These prefixes indicate the manufacturer as Whirlpool.

Hi i bought a Tricity Bendix TMC209 microwave combination oven yesterday but have no user manual. any ideas where to get one. please.


Tri City Bendix is now part of Electrolux. They do not have manuals on line for this product as yet but you should be able to request one using this link:
http://www.electrolux.co.uk/Support/Manuals/?modeld=TMC209

It does seem odd that this Combi Microwave unit has been in the market since Nov 2009 and there still are not any downloadable manuals on-line.

Our oven's glass plate is broken i want new glass plate


After some research I discovered that Electrolux is the parent company of the common brand Frigidaire.
From the looks of it, the best place to order the part you need is from Sears Parts Direct. While there were several other parts companies which popped up, Sears seems the most legit, and the prices they advertise were actually cheaper than the other sites.
The part you need has the manufacturer product code: 5304461145
If you look at the schematic (http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/R0908182-00001.png) you will see the tray labeled as part #45. This code matches the last two digits of the product code, so I'm fairly confident that this is the correct part.
The part is currently priced at $135.43 without tax or shipping.
You can purchase the part online at this link:http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Electrolux-Parts/Microwave-Parts/5304461145/0022/628/Model-E30MO65GSSB/1412/0123100?keySuffixId=&productTypeId=&searchModelNumber=E30MO65GSSB&blt=06&subCompDesc=OVEN/CABINET

GE Profile Microwave will not heat


Unfortunately, there is no way to tell which part the microwave needs without opening it up for examination. There are a few parts that, if defective, would prevent the oven from heating.

  • a high voltage transformer which passes energy to the magnetron
  • a magnetron which converts high-voltage electric energy to microwave radiation
  • a magnetron control circuit (usually with a microcontroller)
This is NOT a repair that you would want to attempt yourself. The labor for the repair would cost a minimum of $50 and shouldn't exceed $100. You'll also have to pay for the necessary part if it's still available from the manufacture or their parts distributor.

Microhood turntable not working


You can find an exploded view of your microwave at http://www3.sears.com (yes, the 3 is there). Ref # 3009 on the drawing is the turntable motor. I would grab it by the shaft and gently try to turn it. If it's locked up or grinding, that's a sign it's bad. It runs $24.49 plus shipping: Part Description: Quantity: Part Number: Model Number: Price: TT MOTOR 6549W1S013D 721.64663300 $ 24.49 $ 24.49 Be sure to unplug the oven before you work on it. Hope this helps!
