Default Oster microwave problems

hello, just joined hoping to find some help, i have a 1.1 oster
convection microwave and for some reason if it runs more the 5 min it
cuts out and i have to wait 30-40 min then it comes back on. the clock
needs to be reset everytime, even if there is a pause inbetween i can
run it for 2 and a half min stop it wait a min then 3 mins and it will
cut out before its done.

any ideas?

The internal fan no longer functions, the unit overheats, and the inline
thermostat opens the circuit.

You either need a new fan, or you need to find out why your current fan no
longer functions.

Before opening the unit up, *please* read and heed the following document,
paying close attention to the safety warnings:

I have a neighbor that had a microwave/convection oven that he was
having problems with. His wife was gone for the weekend and he was
struggling to fend for himself. When I went over he was trying to heat
up a foil wrapped casserole using the uWave mode. For the rest of the
weekend he either ate with us or sent out.

I think newer MW's have a schematic included inside the cabinet.
the last one I opened up did,in an envelope.It had all the servicing info.
BTW,it also used security TORX screws to secure the cabinet.

If it's a convection, it'll have two fans, one to blow air around the inside
of the oven, and one to cool the transformer and uwave tube.

Did you already open up the unit to verify that the transformer/tube fan is
running?

i did not know it had two,... would the inside one run after you have
stopped the timer for a cool down mode ?
if it matters im only using the normal function not the convection
settings
is there a easy way to tell wich one is running ..
