My Sanyo Microwave does not heat up
As it is an older model, I would suspect the magnetron and or capacitor. Maybe the fuse has blown but it will happen again if you just replace it.
Where can I get my door fixed
I would find someone that repairs and fixes small appliances then. I would search on Google and Yahoo small appliance repairs then.
I have a Sanyo Showerwave EM-P672W microwave, that just stopped. Went to heat something up, soon as I went to start it, poof. At the time, it was only about 4 yrs old, & was working fine. I do live in a building that is very, very prone to power surges & fluctuations. Can't count the number of times I've plugged in the vacuum, or used the a/c or garbage disposal, & either had a breaker pop or a safety outlet pop it's mini breaker. I am guessing the microwave has blown a fuse in it due to the power issues? Wanna get another opinion before I bother diving in & getting a new fuse ordered. I do pc tech work, so I am well aware of the dangers working with caps & power supplies.
Mains borne power surges and transients are dangerous to semiconductor devices and especially CMOS devices - any equipment containing these should be provided with surge protection and because almost everything is a computer these days, this means almost everything!
Regarding microwaves - I have been inside quite a few but so far haven't noticed any fuses protecting the control circuitry though there is usually one in the eht circuit. A power surge is unlikely to harm the components of the eht side.
The voltages of the control and timer circuitry are quite normal but those of the eht side are beyond the scope of the ordinary multimeter. I don't have an eht probe so I have never measured it but at various times I have read the voltage is anything from 2000 to 7000 and because it is mostly transformer generated, it is exceptionally dangerous and if the discharge resistor is absent or not working the capacitor can be dangerous for a long time after it has been switched off.
The light bulb doesnt work in my sanyo microwave it is difficultbto see the clock and timings. Model EMC5796V UK2
You appear to be referring to the LCD/LED display above the touch panel, which is not a light bulb. If the panel display is dim it may be due to grime on the inside of the plastic transparent window. The whole touch panel has to be removed in order to clean it. Failing that, the panel would have to be replaced which may not be economically viable as it may cost more than to purchase a good working second hand or new oven.
Before removing the cover of a Microwave oven in attempt to carry out ANY maintenance such as replacing the Oven cavity lamp, make sure the oven is disconnected from the power point ! The voltages in a microwave oven ARE LETHAL !
