SOURCE: Microwave LG intellowave

We bought a microwave from a 'seconds' store, minus the manual. Following the advice given above I found the model number and search the LG site for product manuals.

The site isn't intuiative, but if you are patient you can find the manual in PDF form and download it to your computer.

Thanks for the help MicrowaveSvc

SOURCE: microwave doesnt heat food

Microwave not heating problems are the result of one or more of the following problems -

1) Bad fuse
2) Bad diode
3) Bad capacitor
4) Bad transformer
5) Bad magnetron.

You would need to have special equipment to test the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th items.

Reply back of any other questions/help you may need.

SOURCE: my lg intellowave microwave will not work

This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount (which are pretty simple problems to fix) or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

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

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

If the switch mount is broken, it's usually more economical and safer to add a dab or two of hot glue to the mount to secure the switch. Let it cool for about 30 minutes before using.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

You can download many LG service manuals here, but strangely, they do not have part numbers in them.

You can order parts from Encompass here or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

If you don't find your model's service manual or need more help, feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more information & help.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you only need a switch, you can order a universal type here for $5 postpaid.

If you think the problem is on the control panel, we repair these nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in most cases in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

SOURCE: Need a copy of manual for LG Intellowave Microwave

I found a copy for my LG microwave on retrevo.com. They list several brands and models. It was free to download and will even save it on their site. You do have to register your email address, and get a password. Mine is printing out as we "speak".

It doesn't warm


The owners manual will not help you. Microwave ovens are simple. they either work or they don't. Yours is broken. If you are handy, check the three door switches first.

LG Intellowave


If it's made for (or safe for) microwave ovens it should work in any of them, and I would just follow the steamer's instructions.

Does that answer your question or do I misunderstand the situation?
