If you cook something too long, especially an item that will generate a lot of heat and steam as it cooks, there is an overheat sensor that will cause the microwave to shut down. Unplug it from the wall outlet. Leave the door open and after a while, about 15 or 20 minutes, plug it back in and it should start working again.

That fault is a little tricky. Need to check if you are getting voltage onto primary of transformer. If you are, the problem is almost certainly the magnatron which has gone open circuit. If and when you replace it, change the cap and HVdiode. Wont be sorry if you do. If no voltage there , your board is faulty. replace it.

SOURCE: LG microwave no longer heats!

It sounds as though you may have run the microwave while empty, which can damage the magnetron.

Not that I'm optimistic, but the first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a few minutes, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

Otherwise it likely needs a new magnetron.

SOURCE: microwave stopped working and was hot inside.

At just 13 months old I would be inclined to get in touch with Maytag. If you make enough fuss they will repair it under warranty. but just check that the air intake and exhaust are clear of debris first.

Hope this helps

The same thing just happened to us..... there is no fuse on the microwave but we check our fuse box and tried another plug and it still did not work. GE sent us a new smartboard and now I trying to figure out how to get the thing apart.

It will get hot in a very short period of time. Could you have set the time for a few seconds instead of a few minutes? Thermal issues normally take the unit out until replaced. They are one shot thermal protect devices.

Overheating bottom Kenmore 66560652000

Hi,

I would suspect that when the microwave oven was on the table the vent or air openings were restricted by the table. Without free flowing air the control and other components could build up heat. It is doubtful that you built up enough heat to damage anything as this unit has more than one over temperature safety devices built into it.

That being said, the excess heat could weaken something internally especially on the control that would cause it to fail sooner than later in life.

My advice would be to leave it unplugged until it is mounted back on the wall per the instructions and use it then as normal. If it fails in the next year or so replace it at that time.

My JVM1653 loses power after 3 minutes of heating

it may have been the hi voltage at the magnetron,but the shut down is your heat thermocouple mounted on the magnetron side and when the mag overheats this thermocouple opens up and shuts off power to the mag to prevent overheating and fire

OVERHEATING - Magic Chef Microwave M# MCO160S

Generic questions and comments:

Does your microwave have a "popcorn" setting and are you using it? Is there a rotating table in your machine? Is your popcorn bag elevated on top of a bowl or similar? Are you using some other "sensor" setting? Can you use straight time setting and get it to go past the 1 min 45 second mark?

On my microwave, it takes just about that much time and the popcorn is done ... BUT only if I elevate the bag to about the middle of the oven.

Let me know if this works for you.

No Heat

This is probably due to a bad door switch, most likely the top one. The microwave got hot because the cooling fan was not running. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your model number here: http://www3.sears.com/
