If it is completely dead, meaning, that the display, keypad, oven light does not work. The problem is most likely that the line fuse is blown. Remove the cabinet screws and remove the cabinet. The fuse should be close to either the power cord or the electrical circuit board. Replace with the same type of fuse.

All you have to do is locate the fuse, and then check for continuity, or measure ac current on both side of the fuse. If ther is 120vac on one side and none on the other side then it is blown.

Microwave doesn't start but the interior light goes on when you hit the start button


Hello

Remove the plug from the wall outlet and wait about 10 seconds before re-inserting it. The plug must be firmly inserted to transfer electricity to the appliance.


Open your home's circuit breaker box and reset the breaker if it has tripped and is set to the "Off" position. Simply slide the breaker over to the "On" position to fix a breaker that has tripped.


Plug a different appliance into the same outlet to make sure the outlet you are using is functional. Plug the microwave into a different outlet to see if this yields different results.


Press on the microwave door to ensure it is completely closed. The microwave will not function until the door is fully shut.


Press the "Start" pad on the display panel after setting the time. Failing to press this will result in the microwave not knowing that it should start.


Press the "Stop/Reset" pad on the panel if a program different from the program you want to run has already been entered into the system.


Press the "Clock" pad three times to turn off the demo mode. The demo mode will not allow the appliance to turn on and cook as it should.

I have chefmate microwave and suddenly stopped working. it is showing 2:50 code on the screen only...it was working fine and dont know what happened to it and touch pad is not working..how do i make it...


HELLO.

The code on the screen indicate electric panel fault resulting from the touchpad malfunction.

The touch pad on your microwave oven acts as the brain of the appliance. It not only contains the buttons that you use to enter cooking settings and times, but also controls the function of the entire microwave. If the touch pad malfunctions or breaks completely, the microwave will cease to function. In this instance, the broken touch pad must be removed and a new touch pad must be installed, to restore functionality to the microwave.

1 Unplug the microwave from the wall outlet.
2 Remove the two screws, located on the front or top of the grill at the top of the microwave.
3 Pull the grill off of the microwave.
4 Remove the mounting screw from the top of the control panel.
5 Lift the control panel up and out to loosen. Look behind the control panel to ensure there are no metal tabs securing the control panel in place. If there are metal tabs, gently rotate the control panel to free the tabs.
6 Transfer the wires from the old control panel to the new control panel one at a time to ensure that the wires are properly installed.
7 Install the new control panel into the microwave and secure using the mounting screw that was removed.
8 Replace the grill from the top of the microwave and secure it using the screws that were removed.
9 Plug the microwave back into the wall outlet.
Thanks.

The microwave just stopped working in the middle of heating


Always have something in the microwave before turning on. A glass of water is OK. It's needed to absorbed the energy.
All microwaves will stop if the door is opened. This a safety feature. Never operate with the door opened.
The button below the plug outlet is a test button for the GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter). This is a safety feature of the electrical wiring for your home. Make sure it's turned on.
Since this is a new unit, you may want to take it back to the store you bought from for an exchange/refund.

I have a sanyo em-s8500s microwave. one day it just stopped working. we tried it on all the working outlets in the house. no good. so we exchanged it and the new one out of the box had the exact same...


Have you tested the outlet the Microwave was first plugged into? Did you also plug the new replacement("out of the box") Microwave into that same outlet? If so, I would suspect a problem with That Outlet. It's Blowing the Microwave Line Fuse (fuse inside Microwave).

Generally, you get something unless the fuse inside is blown. There is generally a fuse inside the unit when you remove the button package. First, make sure that the outlet you have is good. Plug something else into it and see that it works.

Chances are the thermal cutout (thermal fuse) on the magnetron opened up. It may or may not also indicate a bad magnetron. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
