Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

Is there an Installation Instruction manual for this model? Our builder did not leave it with us as he should have six years ago when our house was new. Also, what is the possible problem when the microwave suddenly makes a loud noise and no longer heats after working fine for six plus years?

PLEASE HELP!!!!!! I had a house built 6 years ago and had an over the range microwave installed. The first one that came with the house was a GE. after like 6 months it would run for a few seconds and...


It may be that the exhaust duct is blocked or the filter is dirty.

That can cause the oven to run chronically hot, which damages the microwave.

The whole duct needs to be checked for any blockage.

You will need to remove the oven from the wall.

To remove it from the wall, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Whirlpool customer service is here and you can also enter your model number on that page to download your owner's manual, installation instructions, etc..

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts here.

I'd recommend that your bookmark this link to your favorites.

I had a fire in my ge profile spacemaker xl1800. I used the "potato" button as I had for 5 years and left the room. Within a minute I heard clunking, grinding and sizzling...I stopped it and...


Hope there was no injury or damage, but this is what they'd call a "user issue".

Your owner's manual warns you about some items that by their very nature can overheat and catch fire, one of which is a potato.

That's why the manual also wants you never to leave a microwave oven running unattended.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

I have lost my instruction book for my Smeg microwave/oven which I have had approx three years. Nothing wrong with the appliance but I would like to change the clock and can't remember how to set the time...


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, list of Dealers, for spare parts and service, and Installation Instructions as required.


I hope this helps.

I bought a Rival 1000 watt microwave oven a year ago and I need the instruction manual as I cannot find it. I have no problems with the unit, my mother just wants the manual


If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Microwave does not heat if time is less than 1 min 30 seconds


Generally speaking, charcoal filters should be changed and grease filters should be cleaned about every six months, or whenever you notice they are getting dirty & clogged. Yours will likely have one or the other - probably not both - depending on whether it's vented or it recirculates.

A clogged filter will cause the supply of cooling air flow to be lessened, allowing the magnetron to overheat. It only takes one severe overheating to damage or destroy a magnetron.

One common way for a magnetron to fail is that its heating power is less and less, then it just stops heating.

Magnetron's will usually have a warranty of 5-9 years, but you'd still have to pay the installation labor.

You can save a $75-90 home visit by removing the oven form the wall and taking it to a local Whirlpool-authorized warranty servicer.

The date of manufacture will be on the model tag in the unit, and the warranty terms will be in the owner's manual. Many manufacturers will use the serial number and date of manufacture to validate the warranty in lieu of a sales receipt.

No vent for over the range microwave.


Have you selected a microwave yet?

many over the range types can be vented inside if a charcoal filter is used, which you must replace about every six months.

Otherwise, you will need to install a vent system in the kirtchen.

My mother's GE microwave oven has a large burn mark on the ceiling of the unit. She noticed some plastic parts on the floor of the unit. She bought the combination microwave-stove about four years ago and...


That would be the stirrer assembly. It consists of the stirrer motor, stirrer blade, and stirrer cover.

Without the stirrer in place, the oven will not cook evenly and may arc and spark.

Without the cover in place, food particles and grease can get on the waveguide and magnetron, and cause arcing damage.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you need to replace the stirrer motor, you'll probably have to pull the oven from the wall. You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

If the cavity metal of the oven is chipped or charred, it will have to be sanded smooth and clean and dried thoroughly.

Then you can apply some high-temperature appliance paint, available from places like Wal-Mart, Lowe's or Builder's Square.

TO: capt_bob1954:

You can find an exploded view of the outer case & installation parts for the 564.8775380 model here. Maybe that will help.

If not, on that same page, it shows where you can order a copy of the installation instruction manual for $4.99. It's probably worth it to save a lot of aggravation.
