dantheman2008 :

Hi there. My name is Daniel and I will try and help you.

Before we go any further, please could you give me the model number.

Thanks

dantheman2008 :

Off the top of my head, a burning rubber smell on a microwave is quite often the Rectifier burning.

JACUSTOMER-dytq8wjx- :

Model is HF26056 and is built in with main oven.

dantheman2008 :

I am currently trying to find a place where you can purchase a replacement. Please bear with me.

JACUSTOMER-dytq8wjx- :

Does this mean I need a new microwave or just a replacement part.

dantheman2008 :

I am struggling to find anywhere that sells this part.

Sadly, this means that it is probably time to buy a new microwave.

JACUSTOMER-dytq8wjx- :

.

JACUSTOMER-dytq8wjx- :

Can you say how much this will cost, or would it be worthwhile contacting Siemens who might be ablebto replace the part, but if not they will still charge me £89, which as a senior citizen I can ill afford. Advice please.

dantheman2008 :

Rectifier usually aren't too dear. Usually around about the £10 mark.

JACUSTOMER-dytq8wjx- :

I will contact Siemens and tell them of the faulty part snd see of it can be replaced.

dantheman2008 :

No problem. Please feel free to come back to me should you need any more advice.
