Taylor model c300 service manual


Hello. How old is your Taylor Model C300? If you have had this microwave oven four or more years. If it none functioning then recycle it for the metal and other materials. Now the price of copper is $3.25 per/lb, brass 1.85 per/lb, nickel has gone up. stainless steel. Almost everything in your microwave is recyclable. If you don't fell like take it apart and salvaging the material in it.
Call the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, recycling centers, etc.

If you need service manual search the Internet and used wild cards, such as***-----. example: ***Service Manual Taylor Microwave #C300*** or ***Service-Manual-Taylor-Microwave-C300*** Now, if you use to many -- between words this will make the search engine tighten it search to a point it can find anything. So, try it out, if nothing comes up take out a few dashes out

It almost cost prohibitive to repair microwave oven, TV, DVD, VCR, Cassette players, etc. I don't work on them anymore. By the time I get the parts and I have waited months for parts and my time plus parts it to expensive. GB...stewbison

Hi I have had my RONSON slow cooker for a number of years @ I have lost my instruction manual @ would like to know what the dial numbers are ONE for LOW, TWO for HIGH, but what is AUTO for Cheers


Auto might be "Keep warm", but my wife uses it to cook and says that water will boil on Auto. Try putting an oven thermometer in and see what temp it gets to, and then you'll know exactly how your slow cooker is behaving.

What is the wattage?


Oddly, the owner's manual doesn't say.

You can contact GE customer service here, or if it's working properly, here's a test that will tell you how much output power it has:

MICROWAVE HEATING POWER TEST

The following test will provide a suitably accurate measurement of the output power of any microwave oven. Variations or errors in performing this test will produce uncertain results. If the line voltage (from the electrical outlet) is low, the magnetron output will be correspondingly low.

Equipment needed:

- Microwave safe container with 1000 mL (1 Liter) gradation.

- Fahrenheit or centigrade thermometer

Procedure:

Pour exactly 1000 mL (1 Liter) of cool tap water into the container. Using the thermometer, stir the water, then measure and record the temperature. For accurate results the water should be about 60 degrees F (20 degrees C).

Place the container on the center of the oven cooking shelf (do not leave the thermometer in the container and remove any metal racks), and heat the water (at full power) for 63 seconds. Use the second hand of a watch, not the oven timer.

After the heating time is completed, immediately remove the container, stir the water, re-measure and record the temperature of the heated water.

Subtract the starting water temperature (step 2) from the ending water temperature (step 3) to obtain the temperature rise.

To determine the output power in watts, multiply the total temperature rise by a factor of 38.75 if you're using a Fahrenheit thermometer or by 70 if you're using a centigrade thermometer.

Hotpoint microwave oven, countertop, model RE964. How many watts is it?


The owner's manual (which you can download here) does not say, but most of their ovens from that era were 700 watts.

Sharp R-1874F Low Convection Temp


We have the 2 service manuals you need to refer to for this model and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print them in case you don't have it.

The manuals have a safety info, disassembly info, troubleshooting chart, test procedures, part numbers, etc.

I would first suspect a bad thermistor, but it should be checked, as well as the line voltage at the outlet, etc.

The best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.
