About 95% of the time it is the magnatron. If the microwave is under 5 years old that part is often covered under warranty. I would check your manual. If not the p/n is 8206335 and it's about $80 and fairly easy to install. I just looked and the magnatron is covered.

Labor to replace it would be about $125

SOURCE: Microwave does not heat/cook

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

SOURCE: whirlpool model number MH7140XFB no longer heats

you either need a new h.v. capacitor or h.v. diode in the magnetron circuitry if you cant hear it cycle when it runs as in a low pitched hummmm when its drawing current to operate the magnetron tube, each part runs about $30 to $45 each,normally its the h.v. capacitor though

SOURCE: Microwave runs but won't heat

No reset button, there's nothing to reset in it. If you don't get heat and everything else is working that means that the magnetron tube isn't working.
The tube doesn't work because either it's defective ir it isn't powered. To check which you must open the oven and test the power to the magnetron.
Beware, if you don't know how to do that safely or you don't have a very good voltmeter then don't touch it, the very high tension inside can easily kill you.

Model MH7130xez won't heat. everything else works. the clock, timer and lights. does this model have a fuse?


if unit won't heat, then there is a problem with either the magnetron or the diode. if its the magnetron, the microwave will sound almost normal. if its the diode, it will make a humming sound

We have had this microwave for 7 years. Not had any problems until about six months ago when the volume went way down when you push the buttons and timer, but still heated. Then all of a suddon it does...


Remove the cabinet ... check the door safety interlock switches for proper operation. Most of the time, no heat problems can be traced to the oven thinking the door is open. These switches tell the oven if it is open or closed. If they are faulty ... well ... the oven thinks the door is open and will not turn on the heat.

Make sense?

Thanks for your question today.

I have a Whirlpool Gold GH5184XPQ.

Thanks in advance
