    I just bought a microwave and i had it on for 20 min and the food was still cold, and it was only take out food that i was trying to warm.

    I have read that this is common with this model. I hope they have corrected the problem. I am now forced to buy another microwave and have reservations about buying another GE product. Aside from the short life of the microwave (3 years) I have been very happy with it.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

How do I reheat frozen lasagna


Microwave ovens are not meant to cook food, except in a very few situations. If the lasagne has already been cooked before it was frozen, then you'll need to weigh and to reheat it in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions in order to ensure the dish is heated through, though it's better to use a food thermometer.

The temperature you should aim for throughout the dish is 83C. Only at that temperature can you be sure that any bacteria in the dish will have been severely depleted.

I need instructions for 10in. microwave browner


Only place I've found is here: CorningWare Browner Instructions

As these dishes were designed by Corning for a 650 watt over, you can recalculate preheat and cooking times for your oven with the following formula:

650/(your oven's wattage) x (listed preheat time or cook time)

For example, for a Corning MW-9 dish, they list 4 minutes maximum preheat time. I have a 1,580 watt oven. So 650/1580 = .41 x 4 minutes = 1.64 minutes and about a minute and a half preheat. (MAX).

The microwave will not heat the food


Yes - please buy a new one.
Unfortunately microwaves have 2 positions - working or dead!.
The cost to resurrect from the dead is all out of proportion with the cost of buying a new one which will have at least a 12mths guarantee

ADHESIVE


As you know, the microwave heats the food which then transfers heat to the dish which transfers heat to the cooktray.... Typically the tray and the oven chamber doesn't get very hot at all unless you have it on for a long time or are cooking something that is putting off a lot of steam etc. I think you would be safe trying your adhesive assuming it doesn't absorb microwaves itself.

Microwave does not heat food placed in the center of the turntable. Leaves a cold spot in the middle of the food.


This is normal. That's why I always recommend to my customers that the food be placed slightly off-center on the turntable. An analogy I refer to is stirring paint: If you stir paint with a stick by simply rotating the stick in the center of the can, it's far less effective than pulling the stick around an imaginary circle halfway bewteen the center and the edge.
