(or plug something else into Outlet)

If you could check the Oven Thermostat # 7 in diagram.

should also read 000 as a Fuse


I did plug in my hot iron for my hair into the wall outlet and it was fine.

The Thermostat appears to be in a housing of some sort.  Can I just stick the meter thingies in the housing to check it?


Okay....   I uninstalled the unit from the wall and took off the outer cabinet.  I checked the thermostat and it read 000, same as fuse.

What should I check next?

I can't view you schematic right now, but you are going to need to verify that the board is getting 120 VAC to it...stay turned someone will help

Okay.  But please give me very specific and detailed instructions on where to put the two probes on the meter thingy - on both ends of it!  As you can see, I'm pretty much without a clue.

Help?

Did you guys give up on me?

I'm not sure what to do next.  Should I find a service repair shop and take it in?  Buy a new one?

Any guidance would be most welcome.

:D

On the control board where the big plug with all the wires plugs into it you should see a red wire and a white wire side by side. Should be locations # 1 and # 3 on the board.





Turn your meter to V~ 200

With the microwave plugged in put 1 meter lead in the back of the plug where the "red" wire is....and put the other meter lead in the back of the plug where the "white" wire is. The plugs are pretty small and it may be hard to get the meter leads to make contact. if you cant then we will have to improvise.

If you do have 120 Volts then your control board is bad :(

if you don't have 120 Volts then we will have to do some testing.

yes you have it right, double check your meter in a regular wall outlet just to confirm that your meter is still working correctly..should show 110-120 dont change the setting. 1 lead in one and the other lead in the other. if your meter shows 110-120 try it on the microwave one more time for good measure

oh boy.  I'm getting confused now.  I tested the wall outlet - but had to move the probes around on the meter to get it to register.  Here's a pic.



And then I read that I needed to move the red probe over.  So here is the microwave board test with that set up.



Did I do it right?

ok, thats a great sign

if you visually follow that red wire it will lead to an object looking like this



the other side of this thermostat will have a black wire attached to it.

leave you meter lead connected to the white wire like it already is and take the other meter lead off the red wire and touch it to the black wire end

if your meter now shows 120V your thermostat is bad

I do believe that is the problem.  Meter read 121.6 when I touched it to the black wire.

I think we may have found the problem, right?

double check that the other side of the thermostat "red wire" shows no voltage when you touch it

No voltage at all when I touch the red wire on the thermostat.

ok, sorry my computer crashed grrrr.

unplug the microwave and remove the thermostat post any numbers that are on it (they may be small) also where exactly is it mounted on the microwave?

there 3 thermostats on this unit and they are all different values and the parts breakdown isnt the best. i want to make sure I link you to the correct part.

No worries hun.  I'm getting ready to call it a night online anyway.  My car broker down today and I spend over two hours on the bus to get home.  Need some sleep I'm afraid.

The thermostat is located in the upper left had side (if you standing in front of the microwave and it is set down in a bit of a pocket. 

How do I remove it?  Can I use needle nose pliers or tweezers (tweezers I have, needle nose pliers I can't find atm)
