Question about Hotpoint RVM1635 Microwave Oven
When you turn the microwave on, the fan comes on, the light turns on inside, but the turntable does not move, and it does not heat up. Any suggestions? Everything else on it works fine (timer,etc) just won't cook food. TURNS ON BUT WONT COOK, MOTOR NOT RUNNING, LIGHT WORKS, TIMER WORKS. PRESS TIME TO COOK, TIMER COUNTS DOWN BUT UNIT DOESNT RUN
The problem is that the magnatron is not getting power. Chance is that if could be a bolwn fuse inside the unit. If the fuse don't fix it then that leaves the charging diode, capacitor or the magnatron, or high voltage xformer of which without technical epertize I would not recomend attempting to replace. good luck

I bought-the oster microwave and like others it did not last long before it stop heating. I took (careful precaution!!) and (unplugged the the unit!!) to view the fuse which of course is the main problem why this microwave does not heat up. Everything else works well but the heating. But since I changed the fuse to something very close to the same amp of the actual fuse it did work fine next to nothing.
I did not find any problem other than the noheating. This should only be attempted by someone who is in fact has close knowledge of electricity. The process is safe (WITH THE CORRECT PRECAUTION!!).Ever since I replaced the fuse and found out that that was all it needed I have been using it for 8 mths. Note--I did take measures into my own hands which is not recommended by anyone. But it is the old-fashion way...
