Question about Microwave Ovens

Tappan Oven 316246653. Preheating the Oven does not work. Bottom Heating Coil (if thats what its called) is not working. The Broiler Coil at the Top does work. Is it the bottom coil that needs replaced or is there another unit that should be replaced first like an Element Switch?

Usually when the element fails to heat up, It means its usually broke, cracked, or where they plug in gets brittle and breaks. Your best bet is to replace the bottom element.

Kenmore oven C880 676239J2 is not heating up... is the only fuse the one located under the light on top of the control panel?


I doubt that fuse is used for the heating element. If you can unplug the element in the oven, an ohmmeter should show you if it has opened up (burned out) on you. Turn off the 220 breaker in the breaker box before doing this even though there should be no voltage with the controls turned off. (There usually will still be 110 to the top of the unit.)

While pre heating oven, heard a sort of explosion. The bake element was definitely broken. A new one was purchased, installed, but it does not heat up. The broiler also does not work, but stove top does....


i have seen elements short out and cause the main board to fail. if eeverything else works you know you have proper power , so i would say the board is bad

Microwave not heating


In all likelihood the Magnetron, or Power Diode has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

Have old tappan speedwave 1000. buttons work but when you press start nothing work except the countdown on display


Unplug the unit for 15 minutes...plug the unit in and try again. If that doesn't work - take the back cover off and look for any blown fuses...should be obvious.
