Top 20 Hotpoint RVM1325WW Microwave Oven Questions & Answers


On most GE/Hotpoint models, the control panel assembly will either tip down, or pivot sideways for access to the components behind it. Screws holding the top air deflector might have to be removed in order to gain access to the control panel mounting screws. I recently junked-out a similar model. The main fuse was near where the power cord enters the cabinet on top. Avoid contact with any of the high voltage components.

F3 or F4
Open or shorted oven temperature sensor (RTD)

Check sensor harness and harness connection between oven sensor and oven control. Replace oven temperature sensor (RTD) if wiring is ok.

Keep us updated.

You have a faulty display module due to one or more components leaking. Some models have a seperate display module that can replaced without the complete board having to be replaced. If not, the board needs to be replaced. You need to ask your spares suppliers that have info. on that model.

if the microwave is humming there is a fult in the megnatron,,
(thats the part that heats the food) there very pricy to buy and its not a good idear for you your self to try to fit a new one,,,as in side the microwave is a very big capasitor,, it works much like a police stun gun but it wont just stun you it could kill you if you tuch the wrong part,,,
bets thing to do it drop it into a shop for this fix or to be realy honest microwaves are so cheap now it would be a far better bet to go out and buy a nice new one, its not worth throwing good money at an old microwave only to have it pack up in a fuw more months

depending on the age of the unit i would replace it
the most common issue for this call is the hv transformer and magnetron or diode, any one of these could be bad and making the other ones go bad
mic's are tough to call which is bad in person, i would be even harder pressed to nail it down other than one of those three or all of them
for the cost id just replace it

the fan and the surface lights are run through the control via the touch pad. if you tried to replace the bulbs without unplugging the unit 1st you probably shorted the board. this can be checked by lowering the touch control panel by first removing the vent above it to access the panel screw. at this point you can observe the control for burn marks

I would absolutely not recommend it if it's not the same part.

If the door is not aligned and tight, microwaves can leak, posing a risk of damage to the oven, skin burns, and fire.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

You can just replace the bad parts instead of the whole door.

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the previously hidden screws you need to remove to get the door apart.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) that demonstrates how it's done.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

There is a chip that controls TOTAL operation of the microwave, sounds like it malfunctioned. It actually sound like the entire board has malfunctioned. good luck

Many microwaves have similar issues. Usually, (not always) only the light is on and the fan is running, not the section that produces the microwaves. This problem can be caused by the door switches that are out of alignment or a defective control board.

Most microwave diodes will work just fine from system to system. The most common ones I use are rated at 550ma. When you check your old diode what made you think it was bad? They are such a high rating you will not get a reading on it with a regular ohm meter. Mostly on HV rectifiers if it is not shorted ( Zero Ohms) it is probably good. If you have no high voltage then substitute it and see if you do get high voltage, then you know it was open. Follow the video and give it a try.

"F3" means you have a shorting membrane keypad.

I regularly repair these controllers and details are here.

If you have other questions, it's best to follow up with me directly.
