We have an AEG integrated combi microwave oven (model no. KB9810E).

Resolved Question:

We have an AEG integrated combi microwave oven (model no. KB9810E). When being used as a microwave this morning, there was a muffled bang like a fuse going and the oven has lost all power. I have checked the wall fuse and that there is power into the back of the oven with an avo. I was wondering whether you could suggest a likely cause and probable repair cost? I presume if it is a transformer fault then this would be economic to repair? I am conscious that a new machine would cost between £400 (AEG discontinued line) and £800.

Many thanks

The Famous Forry :

Hi to you from David, 'The Famous Forry'

The Famous Forry :

There are a couple of in-line thermal fuses that would be worth checking. Also any visible thermostat.

The Famous Forry :

Does the light still work?

Customer:

No. the light does not work and nor do any of the controls.

The Famous Forry :

Have you checked the in-line thermal fuse link?

Customer:

Not sure how to do that. Somewhat wary of opening chassis given high voltage.

The Famous Forry :
