Question about Cooktops
I am facing frequent problem of microwave oven.
After cooking or boiling potatoes/lentil for 30 min.Microwave oven stop functioning. I checked the fuse it is working OK.The service centre is saying coil has gone. It happened 3 times in row within 6 months. What will be the probable causes so that I can fix the problem.It was a brand new product purchased from the Lulu store.
Sounds like water got into one of the switches. This usually happens when you wash the knobs. Water stays in the holes and runs down the shaft when replaced. Maytag has issued a recall on some stoves because this can be a fire hazard. UNPLUG THE COOKTOP UNTIL THIS IS FIXED!!!!!!!!! This has happened to me with a whirlpool unit and it tripped a breaker and shot sparks across the kitchen. First go to Maytags web site and see if yours has a recall. If so Maytag will fix it free. While you are waiting leave stove unplugged and light with a match. If you need to fix this yourself disconnect the wires from the two switches this should stop the sparking. Connect one switch at a time and see which switch is bad. Most of the time the electric part of the gas valve can be replaced seperately. and you can do this yourself. If you must actually disconnect a gas pipe unless you really know what you are doing call for service.

I just got this microwave oven from my dad, with the manual included. Do you want me to copy it and send it to you?
