Hot point counter saver

Hi, we have a Hot Point Counter Saver that is not working and are buying a newer nicer model.  How do we get it off?  We've looked at it and can't see how its mounted.  There are now screws in our cupboards above it.

Just stopped heating anything last night, it's a Hot Point Counter Saver Plus but says on inside to call GE 1-800-626-6000

On that same label there is a MODEL number that we need to show you a parts listing of what parts may have failed. Hotpoint and GE are on in the same... the only difference is the brand name on the decals. Of course they use different model numbers.... Your model number will be similar to this: RVM1435BD001 I will use that as my parts reference model number as the interal parts that may have failed will be pretty much identical.

When a microwave just out of the blue stops heating usually the either the diode or the capacitor has failed.

See items 49 and 50 this link:

This unit also has 2 thermostats that can also cause it to stop heating. One actually controls the fan speed and the other is an over temp sensor that should shut off everything. The thermostat that controls fan speed shuts off the magnetron power on some units until the unit cools down and then it will work again.

If the magnetron has failed they usually make a loud buzzing sound when you turn on the unit from being cold. (Stuck oscillator) This can also cause the HV power diode and the unit fuse to fail.

Sears parts direct also has the parts for this unit here:

I change out the diode FIRST (after testing the old diode to make certain the diode has in fact failed.) I also test the capacitor while the diode is disconnected from the capacitor.

At this time I think you have a diode or a capacitor problem. If you have someone you know that can use a meter I can pass the information to them on how to test the diode and the capacitor so that you don't order parts that you DO NOT need.

If I got your model number wrong you can enter your model number on the displayed page of either link above. Or respond here with your model number and I will look up your unit.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a Hot Point Microwave - Counter Saver Plus I hit or did something and the word "LOC" is in the screen.l I can't do anything. I am assuming I locked it up somehow. Please help. The...

This is likely the CHILD LOCK feature of your microwave whish is engaged.

Try holding down the CLEAR / OFF button or the RESET button for 5 seconds in order to disable it.

Since you did not provide a model number, you will have to check your own User's Manual for the exact detailed instructions if required.

Good luck.

I have a Hotpoint Counter Saver Plus Microwave model RVM1435wd. The turntable does not rotate. How can I fix it?

If your turntable is not going around you may have one of two problems: the coupler under the glass tray may be worn and in need of replacement or the turntable motor needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.

The door handle broke of my Hotpoint counter saver plus microwave. Is it fixable?

Yes, this is very fixable. The door handle can be easily replaced on most microwave oven models. On MOST microwave ovens, you just have to remove the inner door panel that goes around the perimeter of the glass. The following link explains how to replace the door handle:

The cost usually averages about $40. Replacements may be purchased at the websites listed in the link I provided. However, price and configuration of your oven also depends upon the MODEL NUMBER. Since you did not include this information with your question, I'm providing you the information that applies to most ovens.

If you have any questions, please post back with your model number and let me know. I hope this helps you

Hotpoint Counter Saver Microwave not working

Please do not try to service. its dangerous to play with the internal parts of a Micro Wave. Most counter tops are pretty inexpensive buy a new one if the warranty is out.
