Depends on the power of the oven and to what temperature you are trying to heat it.

My rule of thumb is that a cup of water should boil in 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 minutes for microwaves rated at 1200 watts and 700 watts respectively.

Does this answer it?

The manual tells me to test the product by heating a cup of water for 30 seconds


Bernard,
I usually will test a cup of water for 60 seconds and it should be hot enough that you would not want to leave you finger in the water more than a couple of seconds. It would not be hot enough for most people to use for coffee or some other hot beverage but it would be hot enough to burn your finger if you leave it in there for very long. If it is still lukewarm after running for 60 seconds you probably have a problem with some of the major components and depending on the age of your microwave it might be cheaper to replace the microwave with a new one. Hope this helps you!

I can;t find manual and I want to clean my keurig coffee maker


You may be able to find the User Guide for your Keurig machine here:

http://www.keurig.com/customer-service/brewer-registration-and-support/user-guides-and-help


Your brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water. Better water quality and water heating means a better cup of coffee, tea, hot cocoa or iced beverage. We recommend de-scaling your brewer at least every 6 months (every 3 months if your water has a high mineral content). The de-scaling process involves using 48 ounces of undiluted white vinegar. Full de-scaling insturctions can be found here:

I have a GE Spcemaker XL microwave oven. It will not heat contents. Everything else works.


There are three parts that will cause this, the magnetron "heats food" and the high voltage capacitor and diode all work together to generate the high voltage along with the magnetron to warm or heat beverages.

Inserted K cup and closed machine. Says Brewing but coffee machine only dispenses a few tablespoons of water...tried turning machine off and off, but same amount of water is dispensed each time, no matter...


Sorry to read about your issue.

The brewer should be de-scaled at least every 3-6 months. Scale is harmless, but if left unattended, it can hinder optimal brewer performance. De-scaling your brewer regularly helps maintain the heating element, removable water reservoir and other parts of the brewer that come in contact with water.

Take 48 oz of white vinegar. place in tank. pretend you are making coffee (Do No Use K Cup). let the water fill you mug. then empty that mug. Do it again until tank is empty. then let sit for 4 hours.
Then fill with fresh water to the top. let that tank of water run thru. towards the end taste the water.
If you taste vinegar..use more clean water, until the taste is ok.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Vote/Rate this response. Thanks and good luck

The unit will no longer heat food or beverage


if there is no heating function, chances are that the Magnatron has died. repairs are just not worth the money considering that Microwaves can be oicked uo second hand and with warranty from many Cash converter stores and even some retailers who sell refurbished models from $50

The oven stops partway into the set time, and doesn't heat.


If it stops after 22 seconds, that means the controller has detected a problem, usually a problem with the inverter, controller, magnetron, or a bad connection from one or the other. Due to the lethal voltages used and produced in inverters, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these. You can find an authorized Panasonic servicer here.

CUP HANDLES GET TO HOT WHEN I WARM COFFEE.


It is your cup. The handle density or moisture content of the handle is causing the mwave to heat it. The rest of the cup contains a liquid (coffee?) that is absorbing any heat generated in the body of the cup. Use a different cup!

My microwave oven is displaying sensor error


On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
  • Using the sensor feature, the door was opened before steam could be detected. Do not open the door until stream is sensed and time is shown counting down on the display.
  • Steam was not detected in the maximum amount of time. Use Time Cook to heat for more time.

In most cases, this is a problem with the inverter or a bad magnetron.

Due to the lethal voltages used and produced, I do not recommend that an inexperienced person work on these.
