Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Here are the main things to check when this happnes
1. Is the circuit breaker thrown? Can you read 240 volts at the wall plug with your voltmeter? Don't go by breaker conditions, they lie!
2. Are the wires at the power cord burned where they attach to the dryer?
(2nd most common failure)
3. With your OHM meter, check the electric heating element for continuity.
4. Check all thermostats, fuses and the thermal cut-off for continuity.

Hi. Microwaves are not the kind of thing you want to work on yourself, and one that is malfunctioning can be dangerous to those near by. If the warranty is up your best bet is to recycle it and get a new one.

You need to replace the operating thermostat along with the thermal fuse. This thermostat controls temperature in the drum and if it fails, it will just put out heat constantly without regard to temperature. Be sure to check the exhaust vent in the house walls to make sure they're cleaned. Good luck

Assuming the turntable works maybe your magnetron isn't working properly. Cheaper to buy new microwave then to fix it.

Dryer not heating w/o indication


It's very possible that you need a new heating coil. This is an easy do-it-yourself fix if it's an electric dryer. Save all your receipts and purchase the replacement part from a business that will give your a refund (minus a small restocking fee perhaps).

Everything seems fine but will not heat up I checked continuity, on every thing and it seems fine and I did the more less more less and all codes came up fine took the heating element out and it seems fine...


First things first...Are you sure that you have 220 volts to the dryer? Just because the motor runs doesn't neccesarily mean you have the proper voltage. Also check the connections where the cord comes in to see if they are tight and intact.

Everything works except the cooking part/no heating/turntable not turning, help!


you may have gotten a power surge and that can cause some funny things to happen, 1st is there power to the oven, 2nd if so there may be an internal fuse protector built in to the oven, check with the manual for anything of that sort listed. if not you may have to take it in and have it repaired by a pro. there is a lot of voltage in these ovens and unless you know what you are doing a person could get hurt
