Question about Miele Built In Microwave M82601 900 Watts Microwave Oven

1 Answer

I have a Miele M 8201-1 microwave oven which is three years old with a two year guarantee, it has worked very well until now. The turntable is going round and the light comes on, the sound from the oven seems the same but the food is not heating. It worked fine yesterday, this morning it got food lukewarm, but now it is not heating at all. Any idea what the fault could be?

Hi.

If the microwave is working but not heating, then the problem is often the magnetron (the wave emitter), but there are more parts that can commonly give the same problem not powering the magnetron.
Before replacing the magnetron there is need to test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode and the wiring. Such parts are easier to test than the magnetron. If all this are fine, then the control board must also be checked .If turntable is not running the door switch must be tested as well.

The diode and capacitors can be tested using a tool with diode tester and cap meter. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted. Even if power is off a big electrolytic capacitor like the one on the MW can release a big discharge.Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the general diagram here: Counter top.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed after the oven is serviced or repaired.

Call the Miele number listed on your owner manual to get a quote from a qualified repairer.

Regards.

Ginko.

What do i do?m625 eg miele oven smoke from top and turntable ceased working


Impossible to say what the problem is but if the turntable has stopped you could check the turntable motor. This is easily accessed from the bottom of the unit but you have to actually break the sheet metal tabs that retain it in place and replace using the screws only.

Buzzing sound... Turntable stopped. food heats up but uneven. No microwave fan when heating.. no light inside expensive fix?? Unit is 10 years old


If the microwave oven is 10 years old then it is time to consider a new unit, by your description it is going into cascade failure where different parts have stopped working, the buzzing sound is the magnetron warning you, it is about to fail. The fans job is to keep the magnetron cool while it is running.

Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 microwave


My Belling BEL-CJ/SS25 Microwave / oven / grill has recently developed a problem. Every time I close the door the turntable starts rotating, even when I'm not using it. It doesn't make a noise, and doesn't seem to be going into any cooking setting, and the light doesn't come on, but it turns until I open the door, when the light comes on and the turntable stops turning. This has only recently started happening, and nothing else seems to be wrong with it, Is this safe or should I get rid of it and buy a new one. The guarantee has expired so repair may be cost prohibitive.

Start button intermittent eg press many times (maybe 20) to start


Problem identified as plastic pushbutton on control panel, solution: interchanged with turntable on/off button (nevrer used). Had paid Miele €115 call out (for person who knew nothing about microwaves), Miele operate a closed shop. Local repair service say Miele will not supply parts, Miele designated repair agent will not repair microwaves, Miele will only send "engineer" to customer, no drop off facility. Was forced into buying new microwave oven from Miele as only way of recouping callout charge. Subsequently had a go myself with above positive positive result - now have a spare microwave cooker.

SRUte- This sounds as if you have a collapsed door switch, this would cause this problem,I would not recommend using it until repaired. But as far as recommending a good brand,each to his own everyone is different.I have done repairs for years,and I Love Panasonic products,they seem to have minimal problems.I hope this helps you out. cooltek Mar,3/08
