I have a Haier microwave and tonight after heating some food, I went to close the door and upon closing it, the carousel started turning and it won't shut off.


It sounds like one of the door switches has become defective, each must be disconnected on the one side and tested with a digital meter using the ohms scale.

Sharp R-340H Microwave has power but does not heat food. Carousel working.


The magnetron is the likely problem, "heats food" the other two items to check is the high voltage capacitor and diode. It usually is cheaper to replace.

Can i still use microwave if carousel does not turn but still heats food


You can but you may have uneven or hot and cold spots present in whatever you are heating. Sounds like the carousel motor has failed, those are replaceable. Good luck !

My microwave will not heat. Everything else works.


hello. i can help you.

When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Toaster Master 1979 has less power


Because the microwave energy is beamed into the interior of the microwave and then dispersed by a metallic "stirrer," the pattern of the energy can be fairly consistent, rather than completely random. But this pattern sometimes causes certain portions of the food to overcook (creating tough spots) and others to undercook. A microwave oven with a carousel is far better at cooking the food consistently--the pattern becomes quite random while the carousel is turning.
