You will need to set the microwave to cook at 65% to 70%. this way the microwave only cooks 65 to 70 second out of 100 seconds giving the meat time to cook internally. just make sure the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. before you remove it and and consume.

### Exterior of oven , top and both sides gets very hot to touch, when cooking +- 10 minutes or more the last couple of days; no Error ( E41/42/45 or 47 are being displayed. Fan is normal, functions: OK

There could be food or oil buildup around the door frame which will absorb some of the radiant and microwave energy whilst cooking. Give it all a good clean and see if that helps. If everything else is working properly, it may be a problem with the cooling fan. Microwave ovens have a "stirrer fan" inside the roof or rear of the cooking area to disperse the microwaves and some convection / microwave ovens also have a cooling fan which assists in dissipating heat within the cabinet.

### Cooking with metal probe not fully inserted into ham Frigidaaire Gallery Series Micro....noises occurred ...popping sound....and microwave shuts off....no visual evidence on buttons or surface ...can it be...

Unfortunately when the metal probe was inserted in the ham it caused the magnetron to arc to the probe causing it to short out, but usually the thermal fuse will open and shut the system down preventing damage. It usually takes 30 to 60 minutes for the fuse to reset and allow the microwave to run, try heating water! if you are lucky the oven is unharmed. But if there no change the magnetron will need to be replaced which probably would not be cost effective, cheaper to buy new unit.

### Microwave runs but does not heat or cook food

If a Goldstar, LG or Zenith MV1610 or MV1608 is running but not seeming to heat a load placed in center of turntable, its probably because the "stirrer" intended to spread microwaves generated by the magnetron around the cook chamber is stuck so that most all the heating is directed toward the back and top rather than the center of the cook chamber. This usually occurs after cooking for longer than a minute with no load in the cook chamber - as when a model w/o a timer (such as a MV1608) is intentionally operated in cook mode to serve as a kitchen timer, or when a model with a timer function (such a MV1610) is accidentally operated for longer than a minute w/o any load. Before assuming the magnetron (usually warranted for 5, 8 or even 10 years) or other high voltage component such as diode or capacitor needs to be replaced, try “cooking” a 16 oz pyrex cup of water at full power on the outer edge of the turntable for 2-3 minutes - which usually reactivates the "stirrer" and restores normal cooking function.

### Weak heat ???

Is the cooking level set to high? most microwaves you can adjust the cooking level. 10 is usually the highest. When you turn it on, there is usually an icon or indicator light that tells you you are cooking on high somewhere on the display

### Whirlpool(GH7145XF2-0) does not work occasionally

That's how it would sound if you were cooking on a power level less than full power.

If you enter the cooking time and hit Start, it should cook at full power by default and not cycle like you describe.

If you are using some sensor cook setting or automatic type cooking setting, it may cycle like that normally.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

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

If you don't have your manual, you can download it free here. Check the lower right area to enter your model. number.
