Hi. my micromark MM60106 oven seems to be dead ,no red light, no heat ,no fan. power is getting to the switch but nothing works, do I need a new selector switch



Try using the VOM
First check is the main fuse of the unit. On countertop units, you will need to take the shell off. The fuse will be close to where the cord comes through into the unit. OTR units, this main fuse is usually behind the control panel or possibly behind the vent. Usually the fuse is obvious if blown, otherwise test with an OHM meter, if open, replace fuse.
Some brands will also have a thermal cut-off fuse in the incoming voltage line to the control board. Older Maytags and Samsungs have this fuse in it. This thermostat looking fuse is usually above the oven cavity somewhere under the outside shell. Sometimes you can get to it through the vent of OTR models. Test with an OHM meter, replace if open.

There is little or no heating effect from the microwave


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply.

NO POWER


1 the obvious question.... have you tried a known working outlet. 2. Most likely the internal fuse has failed and must be replaced. You can access this fuse by removing 4 side panel screws, (2 on each side) and 6 rear chassis cover screws. BEFORE you start unplug the unit. Remove the 10 screws. Standing behind the unit, then lift the top cover slightly and pull toward you. the side guide tabs wil unlock and the cover will come free. Once the chassis open aviod the large capacitor as it can still ruin your day. Follow the power cord until you see the fuse block. Remove the fuse... obtain an EQUAL value replacement and install the new fuse. reinstall the cover making sure the side guide tabs interlock on the front sides of the chassis. Plug the unit in and see if you have any signs of power.... I.e light on with door open or control panel dispaly lights up. If you have visible signs of power places a coffee cup filled with water inside the microwave and see it it heats up. If it starts and then all the power goes off again you probably have a bad diode. If it works fine then your in luck.

Sunbeam Mic.Wav. no display... tray runs...


This is usually caused by either a bad door switch or a loose door switch mount, which are pretty simple problems to fix.

Door switch or mount trouble is usually caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, see:

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.
