I want to replace oven
If you are wanting to know who to replace the unit then I think I can help. If this unit is above the kitchen range then there should be a cabinet above the oven. You need to look there for 2 bolts that go thru the cabinet floor into the microwave. have someone there to help hold the oven as you take out the bolts and the oven will come down it is also in some cases hanging on a lip on the back of oven so let it down slowly. There should be a plug in the cabinet as well so you will need to unplug it. Installing the new one is the reverse.
Microwave does not heat. used as timer and has
If you ran this unit empty on full power as a timer, it burned out the magnetron. You have to have a load in a microwave or else there is nothing for the energy to work on so it backs up and destroys itself. It's like putting a potato in a tail pipe..... only worse....
Microwave door has burn spots on the glass of the door...
The brown spots are usually grease / smoke deposits.
Usually there are indeed two sheets of glass in the door.
If the grease is not arcing or smoking, and the metal screen / mesh (that blocks microwave leakage) is not damaged, then it's likely better left alone.
It might be useful to boil a few cups of water with a little vinegar inside the microwave to help dissolve the deposits.
In case you want to take it apart, I have attached a photo from a similar model that illustrates disassembly of the door.
It is not necessary or advisable to remove the door or hinges when disassembling the door.
What is the cfm of a goldstar OTR microwave oven model mv-1500mg
CFM would be "cubic feet per minute", which is a measure of how much air the cooling or vent fan pushes. That specification is not listed in the Goldstar / LG owner's manuals or service manuals I've seen.If you might mean the cubic feet (CF) size of the cooking cavity, the M1500-series have 1.5CF capacities.
Location of fuse
Remove the cover. You will find the fuse near where the cord enters the cabinet. Make sure you get a proper replacement.
It doesnt matter how old a system was. components can be failed at any point in time. unplug the unit. carefully disassembly and visually check the diode near magnetron and capacitor, it might be broken.If seems good, check the thermostat continuity,if beeping. changage your magnetron. be careful capacitor store charges that deadly. discharge the capacitor first.
when you change mag. change the diode too.
