My micro/hood combo works, it just doesn't heat?? Do I need a new thermostat or could it be other things also.....The clock works, the timer works, and the turntable turns, just doesn't heat....
The issue with the unit not heating could be a faulty magnetron, diode or magnetron thermostat. The most likely cause would be a faulty magnetron and can be tested by doing a resistance check on it. Check for less than 1 ohm of resistance. If the resistance is more or open then the magnetron is bad.
Our microwave shut down and will not turn on. I tested the fuses and the two sensors. One of the sensors (KSD-40LC) did not have continuity. Can that be the problem or are there other tests I can do?
There are 2 thermostats behind the control panel on the base. One of these will read closed for continuity and the other will read open. This is the design of the unit. If the unit is not working at all then there are cavity thermal cutoffs that you will want to check . If these check ok then check power to the control board and if there is power then the control board then the control board would be faulty and need to be replaced.
