  • The microwave function on the appliance does not work. 

Applies to

  • Microwaves
  • Compact ovens with microwave function


1. Ensure that the door is completely closed.

The appliance will not start with the door open. Make sure nothing is blocking the latches on the door to ensure the appliance can close correctly. 

2. Make sure you are using the correct setting. 

Our combination ovens have a standalone microwave function and are set a bit differently to the microwaves. Click here to see how to use a Combination oven. 

2. Reset the oven by switching off the power source. 

Wait 30 seconds and switch it on again.
