Question about Hotpoint RVM1435 Microwave Oven
This is a 2 1/2 year old oven, recently started to turn off while working, sometimes it doesn't turn back on by itself so I have to disconnect/reconnect. I noticed that the wires get a bit warm when it stops working. Now takes like 5 times to reset in order to work. The oven is on its own 30 Amp breaker. What part could be causing this? Thanks for your help.
It could be an overheating magnetron. There is a thermostat inside (mounted to the side of the magnetron) which senses excessive heat and opens up, disconnecting the power to the oven. If that's the case, unplugging it and plugging it back in will not fix it. It will come back on by itself after it cools down. That's another indication that it might be a thermostat kicking out. You might try to further characterize the failure: - happens only when cooking on full power? - also happens when cooking on a low power level? - shuts down every time you use it? - only shuts down after XX amount of time cooking? Once you characterize it more, I can make further suggestions. It may also be a bad connection on the control panel.
