Question about Ovens

Microwave oven stopped working

Timer works and counts down but micro wave does not turn and turn table does not spin. Fan works. Light works. Is this common? Can it be fixed? Should I buy a new one? Microwave oven does not work and fan does not run, but clock, timer and ligh operate. Door contacts seem to be OK and fuse seems OK since or light and clock operate.

    Same problem. Microwave counts down, fan runs, door locks. However I do not have a turntable in this unit. It is a CM302 upper oven/microwave electric and the instructions say to use oven rack on #3. What can be the problem?

This is most common in over the range microwaves. Cooking grease migrates into the door switches, resulting in the symptoms you list. Replace the door primary and secondary interlock switches and you should be cooking again. NOTE: be careful not to touch other wires! Even with the unit disconnected from power, if you happen to have a bad bleeder resister in the high voltage capacitor you can still get a nasty zap !

May be one of the components in the High Voltage circuit has failed...Usually there is a relay or semiconductor switching device that turns on a tube called a magnetron..this magnetron is what heats the food...any one of the components in these circuits could have failed...I would have a repairman look at it to see if would even be worth it to get it fixed.

There is no heat coming from the microwave part of the oven, although the grill, convection oven, motor, light and fan all work. The 8 amp fuse on the board where the mains cable enters the oven has blown....


Hello, If everything comes on when it is started, like the light in the cavity and the fan (which one can hear running), and the timer counts down but it doesn't heat, the problem is probably isolated to the high voltage section of the oven.the magnetron i guess is kind of faulty and this is the most expensive part in a microwave oven.
If the display is on and the oven won't come on and run, there may be a problem in the door interlock system or the thermal protection system.
wish yo good luck,

take care.

Fan stopped working


If it is heating without the fan working, then there is probably something wrong with the fan.
If there is no heat as well as the fan not working, then check that the timer is set to manual and not on auto.
To access the fan and heater, remove the rear panel inside the oven, spin the fan by hand,it should be completely free,
If it is not, then it needs replacing.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks

take the trim off of the microwave and on the top of the oven on the right side all the way in the back there should be a reset button just like a surge protector.

Sounds like the door monitor switch, which would take out the internal ceramic fuse. I'd replace those two plus the primary and secondary door safety interlock switches.
