Microwave works but will not heat up food. What is the problem?
Answer Hello Tom. Test the magnetron and make sure it reads less than 1 ohm. Also, make sure the diode only reads in one direction. If it reads both ways, it is bad and will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I had my microwave for 3 years and suddenly it turned off like if there's no power. What's wrong with my microwave? Am I going to be able to fix it? If so, which part needs replacement?
Thanks in advance for your help
Answer Hi Astrid. Great. There is a fuse that can be changed relitively easy. Remove power. Remove the top or front screws that hold in the upper vent grill. Remove the smaller metal plate above the control board assy. w/ one screw. The fuse is on a small board above this area. Part # is 3601-001198. Thank you.
