The control panels are lit. When heating food, it will go through the cycle but will not heat up the food. The light inside does not turn on but the fan will turn on. Also, the exterior fan and light will not turn on but the control panel will show the function.
If it is working but not heating, then test the high voltage
capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine,
test the control board.If turntable is not running check also the door
The diodeand capacitors can be tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenif power is off.Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.
