Question about Vacuums

1 Answer

I have a G.E 1.0 Microwave Model JES1039WF02, It has power on the panel but I see a message that says -F3- It will not start or do anything when the buttons are pressed. There is power running to it. The light inside turns on when the door opens. I looked through the owner's manual and there is no reference to this message on the troubleshooting section.

If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off.
Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if contact is not through the microwave will not work.

Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on, use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely

Where is the fuse located in the microwave?The model is a Whirlpool MH6700XV1 made in Sept 89. It is a wall unit over the oven microwave.


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

There are acutally 2 fuses in this unit. The thermal fuse is item 3 and the regular fuse is item 7 of this link: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=238334

Both fuses are on the rear of the unit inside the back panel attached to the air guide (Item 5 above link)

Make sure the unit is powered off before changing any fuse. Most fuses fail due to a component failure. High Voltage Diode, Capacitor, Magnetron or an interlock switch. If you replace the fuse and hear a loud humming when you try to use it most likely the diode has failed. DO NOT do anything beyond the fuse without grounding the capacitor first. It will ruin your day if it is charged and you touch a wire terminal. Any testing is done at your own risk knowing the dangers of same.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have a kenmore elite microwave oven model 363 63692301 stoped heating food ;. fan & turntable work. HELP!


Hello, two things. The mega-tron tube is gone south, or the HV diode is open/shorted to ground which will cause to open. If the microwave meta-tron tube is bad then recyle your microwave oven and buy a new microwave oven. One can buy a new microwave oven cheaper than buying a microwave tube. GB...stewbison

Where is the ceramic fuse located in an emrson microwave/model # mw8991sb?


Its usually mounted at the point where the power cord enters the back of the unit. You will need to UNPLUG the microwave oven and remove the exterior case to access.

The compatible model for mw8991sb is the MW8901XS0 model.

Here is the link for the exploded diagram of the parts where you can find the location of the fuse.

Somehow our Kenmore Elte Microwave Model 721.66469500 got locked. It says CHILD on the screen. Our manual says it should say "locked" I did what they said, push start and hold for at least...


In general, unlocking a microwave is usually one of the following:

1. Push and hold 'start' until it beeps or display changes
2. Push and hold 'clear/cancel' until it beeps or display changes
3. Push 'start' several times until it beeps or display changes
4. Push 'clear/cancel' several times until it beeps or display changes
5. Push and hold 'child/lock' until it beeps or display changes

If all these suggestions fail, try unplugging the oven for ten minutes and trying again.

I can not figure how to remove the microwave from the outer bracket. We are trying to replace with new GE microwave but can't remove the old one from over the stove.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

you did not list your model, so

Turn off power to unit

1 way. you will have 2 to 3 screws ontop of the unit, open the cupboard door above unit, and look for them. remove all the screws, KEEP UNIT PUSHED AGAINST THE WALL, it will not drop down.
once all 2 or 3 screws are gone tilt unit down a little and lift up and away from wall (TWO PEOPLE)

2nd way if you dont see any screws on top, is look at the upper panel, remove if you can, or look for silver type round screw heads... if you see them..loosen them..unit will become loose from the wall. one on each side.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

I have a Kenmore Elite Ultrawave Microwave Hood Combination and am getting an F9 fault code. I hear a rythmic intermittant buzzing, the unit shuts off and the F9 appears on the screen. I have pulled open...


F9 code can mean something different depending upon the particular model.....
1.) IF your Microwave uses "UltraWave technology"/"SmartWave technology"...Then either the Magnetron has failed or the Inverter board has failed OR maybe the control board has failed (HUH?).
2.) IF your Microwave does NOT use "UltraWave technology"/"SmartWave technology" then one or more of the door switches has failed.

** "UltraWave technology"/"SmartWave technology" **
I'll explain a few things about this wonderful technology...
The control board (accepts the pushbutton commands) has to talk to the inverter board to tell it how much power should be applied to the magnetron. The inverter board will then power the magnetron and inform the control board if the magnetron is working OK.
If there is something wrong with the magnetron or inverter board or a there is a communication breakdown between the control board and the inverter board...WA-LA-----F9----

A pretty reliable test for the Magnetron is to operate the oven and listen for a ticking sound 5-6 times about a second apart. If you can hear the ticking....The magnetron has failed..if no ticking, the control or inverter board failed.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

1st the model number appears to be incomplete. Not an issue at this point but will be if you need parts.

You most likely have an interlock problem with one of the 2 door switches or the door interlock mechanism is broken.
There are 3 safety interlock micro switches activated by the door. One for the light, one for the Magnetron and one for the control panel power. If the problem persists with the Magnetron disconnected. The Magnetron safety interlock micro switch is supposed to blow the fuse if the unit is energized with the door open. Check continuity of your door interlocks. Pat particular attention to the NC (normally closed), C (Common) and NO (Normally Open) contacts.
NC should read to C and when the switch is activated read open at which time the NO contact will read to C.

I really suspect a bad microswitch.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Hi,
  1. Push the power cord all the way into the outlet in case it became loose and is causing the problem. If the microwave still isn't working, check for a blown circuit fuse, and repair it.
  2. Step 2 Check that the controls on the microwave are programmed correctly according to the owner's manual. If they aren't, program them.
  3. Step 3 Close the microwave door firmly. Touch the cook function on the Start Pad, not the timer. Check if the microwave works. If not, continue to step 4.
  4. Step 4 Program the Power Level correctly. If it's not programmed properly, the microwave will cook the food too quickly or too slowly.
  5. Step 5 Use only microwave safe dishes. Make sure food is evenly shaped and defrosted before placing it in the Amana Radarange microwave.
Thanks.

Power Consumption Refridgerators

I have a $300 transfer switch connected to a 60amp sub panel with current meters on each leg. I have to watch the current draw and turn on & off breakers.
