Microwave won't heat food. Everything else works on it

Most likely it is a bad magnetron tube (the heart of a microwave oven - it's the part that generates the microwaves). If the microwave oven is not under warranty or not covered by a service contract or home-repair contract, then it will probably cost more to fix it than it is worth.

Frigidaire microwave won't heat

Generally the magnetron (the part that heats the food) is the cause if everything else still works and it only works once in a while, possibly a short, but not as likely. Unfortunately replacing the magnetron is barely cheaper than buying a new microwave though you can check out to decide whether you want to attempt replacing the part.

Let me know how this works out for you.

Frigidaire Gallery FMT148G1W2 everyting works on the control panels, but food will not heat

This is usually do to a bad Inside the machine is a fuse that is expressly for the magnetron tube. You may or may not have special screws that hold the cover on, but usually they are the tamper - proof kind, you Can buy the tool that removes them. The fuse will be a small (1/4"x1 1/4") AGC type and will be white ceramic with a metal cap at each end, this too, you can buy. After replacing the fuse, make sure that you put the cover back on before testing the ' nuke '. The special tool ( if you have to buy one) and the fuse will cost far less to purchase than a new unit. If the unit still doesn't heat, then the problem will most definitely be in the mag circuit. To replace the entire unit would be my best advice, to repair it costs more than just money, you also have to hassle with the repair people and lose out on time not having your 'nuke'.

Over the range Frigidaire Microwave not heating. Model FMT148

This is a sure sign that the MAGNATRON needs replaced (this is what heats up the food) if every thing else works but food not cooking! 99% of time it is the magnatron!
