Microwave runs but does not blow heat

Hi
My Microwave runs but does not blow heat. what is the cause of the problem

Posted by on

  • Anonymous Oct 06, 2008

    I have the same problem as of 10/4/08. All the reading I've been doing points to the magnetron unit being defective. The replacement costs $139.00. I'm reading that if the unit is less than 10 years old, it's covered

    under warranty. But only the part.... not labor. You can buy another unit under $300. I've also read that when the magnetron unit is replaced, it dies 6 months later anyway. I'm cutting my loses and buying a new but different unit.

HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron)))....

There is a short circuit happening on your microwave. It may cause by a shorted to ground heating element or a wire that is expose to each other probably cause it by the generated heat which the plastics wire become thin. It's dangerous to use so I advice you to call a service tech near your area.
I hope I give you a idea in your microwave problem.

My microwave turns on but doesnt produce heat


This happens because of a bad door switch . The plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door .

Check also the turntable . It could be out of it's right place .

WARNING :

1:Don't slam your microwave door because this may cause the fuse to blow and this is the reason of bad door switch problem .
2: A microwave is capable of giving you a serious electrical shock even when it's unplugged , so I recommend you to call a repair technician for help .

please don't forget to rate .

good luck .

Ge spacemaker runs but wont heat


Hi, there are three issues that will cause a no heat situation in a microwave. these issue are a failed Magnetron, busted cut-off fuse and, failed diode.

I recommend checking all these area that are located inside the microwave for faults.

The most common issue will be a failed Magnetron.

The diode and, fuse will be located on the noise filter assembly.
