  1. Hi Folks, I could really do with a bit of help in diagnosing a Bosch microwave issue The model is: HBC86P753B/01 Combi Oven and Microwave. https://i.pinimg.com/originals/5d/7b/5d/5d7b5dd4a9d9cec46429852d96d23147.jpg The problem only affects the microwave section: The symptoms are as follows: I power on and select microwave at any power level setting, adjust timer to 1 minute and press start, The light comes on fan runs for about 3 seconds and then display resets back to clock. I am electronically qualified and aware of the high voltage risks, so dismantled to investigate yesterday. Magnetron shows no evidence of cracked magnets or distorted structure. Measures just under 1 ohm across heater with no leakage between either of the heater terminals and the case. If I run with the cover off, there are no sparks, unusual sounds or smells of burning. The conventional oven responds correctly to door switch when opened. This model uses an inverter PCB rather than the traditional capacitor and diode arrangement, so wondered if this module could be the cause. As the part is quite expensive, I thought it would be sensible to seek advice first. Are there any other items to check, or has anyone experience of this module failing? https://www.partmaster.co.uk/control-unit/product.pl?pid=1492093&query=HBC86P753B Many Thanks Regards Mike

  10. Totally dead Samsung OTR Microwave Mod ME18H704SFS Ser 07867WTF700650E. This unit is about 16 months old, it belongs to my son. It has worked fine since we installed it. He went away for the weekend, came back home and the unit was totally dead. Nothing. No lights, no panel, no fan. DEAD. Tried a new outlet on a different, (known good) circuit. Same thing. DEAD !!. there was no bad weather or any other signs of electrical malfunction in the house. It is on a dedicated 20 A circuit. I couldn't find a schematic for it. I guess gone are the days of including one with the appliances. After properly discharging the HV cap, I tested as many components as I could easily get to. Fuses on the power board were good. All (I think I found 3) thermal switches/cutouts had continuity. I am not sure I was able to get to ALL the door switches (or for that matter, all the contacts on all the door switches) but the ones I was able to get to tested fine on open/close. I was able to test for AC up to the power board. I did not go into any board components further. When I was testing the thermal cutouts and the door switches, I was careful to remove at least one connect or from each before testing it. All connectors looked fine, and disconnected / reconnected without incident. EXCEPT the one on the thermal cutout for the magnetron. The thermal cutout on the magnetron had one normal looking connector, and one that was badly heat discolored. possibly slightly melted and because of it's location, I was not able to get the required "oomph" on it to disconnect it. I tried wiggling it, pulling it, I tried some needle nose pliers. I just couldn't get a decent grip on it. So I disconnected the normal, unblemished one, and tested continuity fine via the contacts on the cutout itself, NOT via the connector crimp. At this point I had gone as far as I could/wanted to without a schematic. As a "last ditch" effort before calling it a day, I plugged it back in and all was well. It fired right up, heated fine. I remounted it on the wall and it's been good for the last 24 hours. My guess is that one of the connectors I wiggled/removed/reattached etc while testing fixed the issue. Which one? My guess is probably the discolored one on the mag cutout. But who know at this point. Next time I'll test one thing at a time and try to fire it up each time. Any other thoughts, comments or suggestions? Thanks.
