20 Most Recent Viking DMOR205SS Microwave Oven Questions & Answers

We have an over the range GE microwave and my wife was cooking some pasta on the stove and used the vent fan on the microwave to dissipate the steam and when we were done eating she noticed that the steam from the pasta had gotten in between the glass on the microwave door, how can we get rid of this any ideas.

I have a Viking Micro/Hood combo. The door latch was not working. I removed the handle by pushing up on the right side and then pulled out. There is a hollow cylinder on the left side of the handle that extends out to trigger the door to open. For some reason it wasn't triggering so I extended it out by inserting a rod into the hollow part and pushed it in until the cylinder was extended by 1/4 inch. It works fine now. Hope this works for you.

Most of the internal electrical parts would be, but not the external parts.In fact, many internal parts will have the Sharp part number on them.Some examples of a Sharp part number format: RV-MZA302WRE0, RTRN-B070MRE0, etc.Notice differences between ohs and zeros.Most of the differences are cosmetic.The VMOR205 is equivalent to the Sharp R-1874, whose manual is at our site here.You should also refer to the R-1855A manual here.You can order Sharp parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

Check to see if you have a "reset" button on your microwave, or even just by pressing the "clear" button first. Check to see if you have a "master" or "red" reset or "test" button nearest to your microwave on a light switch and reset that if applicable. You could also check to see if your unit has a fuse and replace that. It's possible when you tripped the fuse in the house you might have blown the fuse in the microwave.

It sounds like a bad interlock, most often the bottom one. See this file.

HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron)))

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

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

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases.

Please feel free to contact me directly if you need more help.

1. Open internal fuse 2. Magnetron failure 3. Control board failure 4. Door interlock failure

Might be the transformer or the control circuit that pulses the supply to the transformer at various rates depending on the power setting selected. I would suggest you first check the transformer is receiving a good supply before you spend more money. Beware of the transformer secondary that, if it is working, produces a dangerously high voltage (typically 2 - 3000 volts) that is far beyond the capability of most multimeters.
