Microwave/Oven number HB 84E 562B Our microwave no longer

Customer Question

Microwave/Oven number HB 84E 562B Our microwave no longer works. It was originally starting it's countdown and tripping out at around 40 second, I have fiddled with the settings in the handbook and it now counts down for its one minute with light on but does not heat.

If its tripping its most likely to be the magnetron which would make it uneconomical to repair.

If you have a multi meter, with the power disconnected you can strip the unit down and then check the two internal fuses. If the fuses are fine, disconnect the two spade terminals on the magnetron turn on the timer and see what voltage you get across the two spade terminals. If your not seeing a high voltage then it will be the main board at fault, if your seeing a high voltage its the magentron which isnt powering on when the current is applied.

However on looking are eSpares and buyspares websites they dont list your model, so you may struggle finding replacement parts, however based on my experience a replacement Magnetron would be the region of £250.
