The Most Common Microwaves Problems and How to Fix Them

Like any other home appliances, Viking microwaves fail and break in their lifetime. Some microwave problems are fixed easily, while others – need professional appliance repairman help.

Please, be aware that the high voltage and high current used by microwave ovens pose a substantial risk for injury or death if you disassemble them to perform repairs. Since high-voltage capacitors used in microwaves may retain a charge even after the microwave has been unplugged, only experienced professionals should access and replace the internal components.

Here are Viking microwaves problems our technicians encounter the most often:

Microwave is not heating

Viking magnetronThis problem is often caused by the faulty magnetron. A magnetron uses high voltage to produce microwave frequency to heat or cook food. If the microwave is turned on when it is empty, a magnetron may burn out. To get your oven up and running again, a burnt magnetron needs to be replaced with a new one. Other parts might be causing the issue as well. This list includes defective diodes, a faulty door switch, and transformer failure. For all of these cases, you need the assistance of a certified appliance repair technician.

Microwave light-bulb won’t turn on

Viking microwave light bulb replacementIf the small bulb located behind the grill won’t light when the microwave runs, the problem can be caused by a fused bulb, a faulty bulb socket, or a bad wiring. In case, all of the above are in good shape, check the main control board. If the control board is defective, it fails to send voltage to the bulb socket and you need a qualified repairman help to resolve this issue.

Microwave stops in the middle of the cycle

Viking microwave stops in the middle of the cycleIf your Viking microwave shuts down during a cooking process, make sure the outlet is getting power. You can test the outlet by plugging another properly working electric device, like a hairdryer, lamp, etc. If the outlet is working fine, the microwave may have overheated because of placing it in a cramped space without good ventilation. As soon as the microwave cools down, it will continue working. Another reason that may cause your microwave to shut down is a problem with the switchboard. A microwave technician is required to fix this problem.

Microwave buttons do not work

As repairing microwave by yourself can be dangerous both for your health and life, it is recommended asking licensed appliance repairman for help.

There are sparks inside the microwave

Sparking microwaveIf you see sparks inside the microwave, switch off the appliance immediately and perform the inspection. There are some of the possible reasons behind this problem: burnt diode, worn out paint from the inside walls and broken rack support. If you are not sure it is the cause, you may call a repair company and ask a technician to perform diagnostics of the problem.

Microwave plate is not spinning

Viking microwave motorWhen the microwave plate won’t spin, it’s most likely that the motor located below the plate is worn out or burnt. The good thing is the motor can be easily replaced. If the motor isn’t causing the issue, then the control board is a culprit and it needs to be replaced. Get a licensed technician to perform this work for you.
