It counts down for 3 seconds and then cuts out on all settings

Thanks,What exactly happens when it cuts out and how can you restart it? And does it sound different when it runs?or the same?thankstech Mike
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.
SO are you saying also that no matter how much time you have on it it runs only for 3 secs?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes! It's as though the stop button has been pressed and I then have to reset everything- wattage, time and press the start button again. It again stops after 2-3 seconds.

It would appear that we aren't making any progress. It isn't a case of pressing a few reset buttons and I am going to have to call in Neff to carry out repairs or purchase a new oven. Do you agree?

Are you any further forward with my problem.

Hi I am sorry for the delay,In this case the magnetron or the diode had failed and is overheating internally so the timer will cut it off like this.If you are handy I can help you source the part and replace it. But this is really a task for an experienced technician as microwave ovens can retain a lethal charge even when unplugged!I can keep you safe if you would like ti make this part replacement.Please let me know.In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.Please rate my service thus far.Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.Thank youSincerelyTech Michael
