Question about Hotpoint RVM1435 Microwave Oven

1 Answer

Won't heat, works otherwise

I recently got this oven from a contractor who replaced it for a customer. They claim it worked fine until there were some bad storms in the area one night. Now when you turn it on, everything seems to work fine. You can hear the distinctive sound of the magnetron's deep hum, and when running it on lower power settings, you can hear the magnetron turning on and off as it should. Trouble is, it doesn't heat anything. My question: How do I know for sure if its the magnetron? Could it be the HV capacitor instead? What else could it be if not those? Thank you

    ...Ok so I replaced the magnetron, and it still acts exactly the same. Hums like it's working, but no heat.....wtf?

It's likely to be the magnetron or a bad connection on the FA terminal of the magnetron, but it may be a bad connection or relay on the control board.

Can two separate convection units (microwave and oven) be combined/joined into one cord and plugged into one outlet and BOTH work efficiently? The contractors I hired combined all wires to both unit


You need to have the contractors return and troubleshoot the problem free since they told you they both worked when you purchased them. There's an implied warranty here. The two ovens should have been tested before the contractor left your house to prove they both worked together.

Unless you've had the magnetron replaced recently, I'd say you have a bad connection on the control panel / circuit board.

At times some buttons dont work


This may sound crazy but I had one do the same years ago. I cleaned the touch board with glass cleaner and would work fine until got dirty again. Won't hurt to try!
