It may be a defective hood thermostat or a problem with the control board.

We regularly repair these for customers nationwide with our guaranteed $39.95 service. Feel free to contact me directly for more information & help.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

NO POWER! WALL OUTLET ENERGIZED. 20AMP FUSE GOOD. HELP


Not a solution, just a safety measure. Please keep this unit unplugged until you find a solution for safety's sake. You didn't mention the brand, but some ovens have been starting on their own while the owner is away and causing an explosion and a house fire.

The microwave does't make any noise ,,,but the count down on clock is working ...light is working but no fan ...or huming noise ...what could it be


HELLO.

The likely thing to be is that the microwave fan is faulty.the solution is to replace the fan.

Needed instrument:Phillips-head screwdriver.

Instructions on how to replace the fan is detailed given below.


    • 1. Unplug the microwave from the wall outlet to prevent an electrical shock while
    • working on the microwave oven.

    • 2 .Remove the screws holding the fan shroud to the top of the microwave oven. Using a Phillips-head screwdriver, turn the screws counterclockwise to back them out of the panel. Set the screws in a safe place so they will be available for installing the new fan.

    • 3.Slide the fan shroud--also referred to as a damper plate--forward, toward the front of the microwave, to remove it. Set the shroud to the side.

    • 4. Lift the fan assembly out of the microwave. An electrical cable and plug is accessible once the fan assembly is out of the way.

    • 5. Unplug the electrical connector from the fan and fully remove the fan assembly.

    • 6. Set the new fan assembly close to the top of the microwave to facilitate plugging the new fan into the microwave's connector. Plug in the fan assembly.

    • 7. Position the new fan in the same orientation as the old fan's before its removal. Lower the fan assembly into position.

    • 8. Slide the fan shroud in place and install the screws to secure the shroud.

    • 9. Tighten the screws with the Phillips-head screwdriver by turning the clockwise.

    • 10. Plug the microwave oven into the wall outlet and test the new fan installation.
Thanks

Ace 208 comes up with "hot" in display amana tech say not possible no code like this


Hello I´ve repaired a couple of ACE208 with hot message in the display. The problem is in the convection fan located on the back of the oven cavity, turn the oven on and quickly open the door and look inside to see if the fan is spinning (slowing down, the fan stopps when you open the door but you can see it slowing down) if it is not spinning the supporting screws of the fan sometimes loosen up causing the fan to hit the oven walls preventing the fan to spin freely -probably before the problem started to happen you could hear a loud noise- the fan can´t move the air throgh the warming elements causing them to overheat hence the hot message. The fan motor rarely fails so all you need to do is remove the stainless steel cover and the back black cover and tighten the mounting screws of the convection fan and clean it if it´s dirty. Hope this helps, both the ovens with hot message I have repaired get the green tag just by doing this or replacing the motor, I have no knowledge of other problems that may cause this.

The fan on our Kenmore microwave oven is not working.


My husband took the unit off the wall looked down into the fan and found a dead mouse keeping the fan from spinning. We removed the dead mouse cleaned up the area. Turned on the oven. The fan worked perfectly. Then he rehung the microwave.
Thanks!

Light shorted out when tring to get bulb out .


We see (and repair) this a lot. The problem is on the control panel, which we regularly repair nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid.

This light failure often occurs when a bulb goes out and the filament shorts, or when the bulbs are removed or installed without first unplugging the oven from the power line. Either can cause such a failure on the controller.

This can often also affect the exhaust fan operation, too. The lights and fan can be inoperable or stuck on too.

Details of our service and critical safety information and disassembly information is at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

We even have a video on our site that shows you how to safely & easily remove the control panel assembly to send it for service.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Fan/ heating element won't turn on


You may have a bad internal fuse or thermosensor. Take off the key panel. look for fuses. Also the sensor is black, about the diameter of a dime and 3/8 inch thick with two wires...attached to the oven wall. Check for continuity. Quick check, remove wires, connect with a paper clip tape up and try. Do not run with the sensor out of the circuit except to test.
