Here's a roundabout way to help you:

You can find a different High-Pointe RV microwave owner's manual here.

That manual should have contact info to help you get in touch with High-Pointe to get a new one, or it may be close enough to your model to work for you.

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

SOURCE: High Point Microwave has no functions

I actually got ahold of the pretty much non-existent microwave division of the manufacturer called Pelonis USA, Ltd. Now if you google this company you will only find service and warrany for their heater division. The actual service number for the microwave division is a personal cell number. As stated by a tech this is a fuse issue so (get this) they only warranty the gears not the fuses. BUT it gets a little better. Through the coach's purchasing dealer you can get a replacement. This company will work through the dealers. Call the heater division's service number at 866-876-4332 (located in Grand Prairie, TX) and ask for Shalom in the microwave division. You will be given a personal cell phone number w/ area code starting in 415 or an office number with area code 847.

Diode


The high voltage diode converts the A/C power output of the transformer to D/C, doubling the voltage to nearly 5,000 volts. This high voltage powers the magnetron which emits the energy that cooks the food. If the diode burns out, a lower A/C voltage reaches the magnetron, which is not sufficient to power the magnetron. When the diode fails it is often visibly burned out. If it appears to be good, it can be tested with a volt-Ohm meter capable of testing diodes. High voltage diodes frequently fail and are one of the most common points of failure in a microwave oven. A regular meter with a diode checker will not work to check these diodes. You have to use a meter with a 9 volt battery or put a 9 volt battery in series with the diode to check it.

Door Switch


If the microwave does not heat, one of the door switches might be defective. Microwave ovens normally have three door switches, if any of them fail the microwave does not turn on and does not heat. Check the switches for continuity with an Ohm meter.

Magnetron


If the microwave oven doesn't heat the magnetron tube might have burned out. The magnetron uses high voltage, high current DC power to generate the microwave frequency that cooks the food. If the microwave oven is turned on when it is empty this can cause the magnetron to burn out. Once it is burned out it has to be replaced, it's not repairable.

High Voltage Capacitor


If the microwave doesn't heat the high voltage capacitor might be defective. The high voltage capacitor works with the high voltage diode to convert the output of the transformer to DC voltage and to double the output voltage. If the capacitor is burned out the entire high voltage circuit stops working properly. The high voltage capacitor can be checked with a special VOM meter which has a capacitance testing capability. Be aware that the high voltage capacitor can retain a charge of more than 3,000 volts and can injure or kill a person if not handled properly. Only trained technicians should perform this type of testing.

High Voltage Transformer


If the microwave does not heat, the high voltage transformer might be burned out. Microwave ovens produce a very high voltage in order to power the magnetron antenna, which emits the energy that cooks the food. When a high voltage transformer fails it will usually arch and have a burning smell.

Where is the high voltage capacitor at on panasonic microwave model nn-sn960s


behind the control panel,while your checking the h.v. cap check the h.v. diode for a shorted condition as this will also blow the 20 amp fuse too

Is there a fuse in ge jvm1350 model if so where?


there are many fuses in this microwave,,,but you may not get the right sizes, there not normal sizes that you have in the home,,there are slow blow fuses fast blow fuses and some are very high voltage fuses,,
a point i should tell you now is that inside your microwave it could still have 1000's of volts still in it,,if you go poking about inside it and tuch this voltage it will realy bite you!!! it could easly kill you,,,,
is it realy worth that? if a fuse has blowen there is another fault in it that caused this fuse to blow in the first place,,,

Can you let me know the connection digram of transformer to capacitor with high voltage fuse in a microwave. Make is sharp


Since you posted this under R-1210 / R-1211 / R-1214, I can point you to the service manuals that cover those models here:

http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r1200_r1201_sm.pdf
http://www.microwavedisplay.com/r1210_r1211_sm.pdf

Those models don't have high voltage fuses, but the connection of a high voltage transformer to the capacitor is almost always the same, so they may help you.

The high voltage lead of the HV transformer connects to one side of the capacitor. Unless there's a fuse inline, nothing else is connected to this point. The other side of the capacitor is connected to the anode (non-stripe side) of the high voltage rectifier diode, and to the FA terminal of the magnetron.

If you still need help, feel free to contact me with your full model number.

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

Ihave high-pointe microwave oven serial #0604m00024 manufactured/ april2006 and listed 54nj has benlocked and idont know how to worked please hellpme


I also have a High Pointe Microwave Model EM925BSC SN 0608MO3508 manufactured in Aug 06. Tried to use it for the first time this weekend after buying a new Honda EU2000I to use it. The turntable does not turn automatically or when I try to turn it manually. Cooks OK. Nothing in the owner's manual that came with trailer (Zoom 178) mention how to fix the problem.

Anyone have a Ph# for High Pointe. Their Service center address is High Pointe, 2617 N Great Southwest Parkway, #100 , Grand Prarie, TX 75050.
