Question about Sunbeam SBM6500W Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Sunbeam Microwave stopped working suddenly

I have had a sunbeam microwave for about 3 years now, the other night I went to cook some food in it and when I turned it on, there was a pop and it wouldnt work. I'm guessing that either a fuse blew, or the lightbulb. Any ideas and any possibility that this could be easily repaired?

Here's the overview on fuse blows:

If the fuse blows as soon as you plug the oven in the wall, or when you open the door, the problem is likely with the door switches.

If the fuse blows as soon as you hit START, then it's likely that you have a shorted high-voltage capacitor.

If the fuse blows a few seconds after you hit START, then it's likely that you have an overheating / shorting high-voltage transformer.

My Sunbeam microwave stopped work 1 min into cooking something?

There could be a problem with your microwaves switchboard.Or the wiring connection is not good and causes it to heat up and causes the fuse to trip and then has the power shut off for your microwave.

My Sunbeam Microwave SGB8901 lights up and seems to be working, but it doesn't heat anything. Is this fixable?

Only 2 years old? Hopefully you still have owner's manual, troubleshooting section should help you look for the problem. Hopefully, there is a circuit breaker, or perhaps a fuse. I hope it was not used with a metal object accidentally. No help? Check with Sunbeam Customer service, be nice, they usually are helpful.

Micowave just stopped working

The main fuse in the microwave oven has blown, this is often caused by one or two door switches going bad usually the result of food partical build up and must be replaced to fix the problem.

I have a Sunbeam SMO701A7E microwave and I want to permanently turn off all beeps ( food ready, food still ready, even start and stop) Is this possible?

Without physically cutting the wires to the sounder, no. If you remove the sounder, it will become possibly dangerous as one will not know, if not remembering, that the food inside is hot or cold and could cause an accident or food poisoning if not cooked properly.

Does not cook food. the microwave oven appears to be working but it doesn't cook the food. Turn-table works, timer works, the light in the oven is on but my food does not cook, defrost or warmed up.

In all likelihood the mangnetron is failing, or perhaps even the Power Supply is faulty. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one
