Microwave was built 6/2005. It is an "above the stove" unit.
The heating element quit working. Everything else seems to
be working fine. I didn't see anything that referred to the heating element. Thanks, Have a blessed day, Harold.
Answer Hello Harold,
The model number listed is for the microwave. The microwave will not have a heating element in it. If you are having problems with the lower oven then you will need to provide the model number for the oven. On the microwave you could check the diode, thermal fuse on the magnetron, could be a bad capacitor, transformer or magnetron.
The power completely shut off the second the microwaves door was opened. All the power checks out with a multimeter from the outlet to the 2 door switches, main switch between those, and the cylinder fuse. I noticed though that there is no continuity between the two mail ends on the part I'm suspecting. Item# AP3768244 manufacturer# 5304440023. This is what I was about to order here. Is this likely the problem?
Answer Rob, If this is the hood fan cut out it would be an open circuit. It would have a red/black wire on one terminal and a yellow wire on the other. This would be an open circuit, until the microwave gots hot from the cooktop, then it closes and turns on the cooling/vent fan. Based on your post. You need to start at the door switches and wiring. " The switch is intended to render the oven inoperative, by means of blowing the monitor fuse when the contacts of the primary interlock relay (RY2) and secondary interlock switch fail to open when the door is opened." We'll send you some additional information, that should help .
