Exterior of oven , top and both sides gets very hot to touch, when cooking +- 10 minutes or more the last couple of days; no Error ( E41/42/45 or 47 are being displayed. Fan is normal, functions: OK


There could be food or oil buildup around the door frame which will absorb some of the radiant and microwave energy whilst cooking. Give it all a good clean and see if that helps. If everything else is working properly, it may be a problem with the cooling fan. Microwave ovens have a "stirrer fan" inside the roof or rear of the cooking area to disperse the microwaves and some convection / microwave ovens also have a cooling fan which assists in dissipating heat within the cabinet.

Wattage for mc 1000b microwave


By the name I would think that it is a 1000 watt Microwave. Wattage as in cooking power is what you wanted? Running wattage, a 15 amp circuit will work fine. A 120 volt, 1000 watt microwave will use 13.4 amps (1,600 watts) of electricity in a full power cooking cycle. I think that covers everything! ..:)

Microwave runs, but does not cook anything. says sensor error


The magnetron, which is the device which creates the microwaves might have got damaged. If so, it should be replaced. Magnetron is the costliest part in a Microwave oven, check the price before before servicing it.

I hope this will solve your issue.

Good Luck.

If my solution proves useful please accept it.

Arjun

GE Microwave won't heat or cook - one year old


More than likely the magnetron has failed. This could be for a number of reason. Do you use your microwave to heat wheat packs or warm plates? If so, you may have dried the magnetron out (they use the moisture in whatever you're cooking to heat it, and plates/wheat bags have no moisture).

I'd say a trip to your local Microwave repairer could be in order. It could also be the High Voltage Fuse which has failed. Either way a repairer will be able to tell you!

Microwave cuts off after heating for about 3-4 minutes


There is a overtemperature device inside that is shuting you down until things cool off. Take the cover off and clean up everything as much as possible. Grease from the cooking can get all over everything inside and collect dust buildup enough to obstruct the airflow and cause overheting.
