    Our microwave popped popcorn for the granddaughters and then stopped heating. Everything seems to work. The turntable spins, the board is lit but nothing heats up. Can it be fixed or does it need replaced?

    MY LG OVER THE RANGE MICROWAVE WILL RUN AND ALL THE LIGHTS WORK,BUT IT DOES NOT HEAT?

  • Anonymous May 26, 2009

    I have a GE spacemaker microwave Model JUM50001 which works at times and other times does not. Sometimes it will heat the plate only and not the food. I am guessing the microwave is approx. 25 years old. My problem is that new microwaves hang down too low over the stove. The particular model I have is angled which leaves additional room while cooking. Can you help? Dave

Microwave runs but doe not heat


follow this test and fix it. God bless you
  1. Check the power diode This electronic component is responsible for transmitting current in one direction. If the diode becomes defective it will cause your microwave to not heat. Test the diode and replace it if necessary.
  2. High voltage capacitor Responsible for storing electricity, this part is a key component in any microwave. Remove, discharge, and test the capacitor to determine if it requires replacement.
  3. Damaged magnetron Responsible for generating waves and producing heat. When your microwave is no longer heating properly, replacement will be required.
  4. Thermal Cutoffs Examine the thermal cutoffs on both the magnetron and the oven itself. Take off one of the leads and using a volt-ohm meter on RX1, check the terminals. If you get a result other than zero, replace the thermal cutoffs.

Sharp r-610dk microwave runs but don't heat up


The magnetron has failed, or the inverter board, "if 7 years old or less" there is also a possibility the keypad control board may be the problem.

Microwave runs, turntable turns, fan runs, but does not heat,


No heat means the magnetron circuit has failed. It is the part that generates the microwaves to heat the food. Usually not worth fixing since the magnetron costs nearly as much as a new oven. To diagnose, if the oven is on, you will hear a loud buzzing sound if the magnetron is shorted.
