    My GE Profile Microwave oven seems to be working...light goes on, turntable turns but food does not heat up?

  • kmwnky May 11, 2010

    How do I check the relay mentioned in solution? How do you fix a faulty magnetron?

    When you hit Start to cook, do the inside light and turntable come on?

    Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

    Do you have the model number?

    These answers will help me judge whether it's in the high voltage
    section (magnetron, transformer, or diode) or the control section
    (door switch or control board relay or connection).

Check the relay that switches on the high voltage transformer or you have a faulty magnetron

My samsung microwave oven is not heating up food. It works normally, lights on, food turning on plate, but not heating the food.


if your microwave does everything you have described , and you can hear the cooling fan running as well after you press the start button , you probably have a faulty wave guide. The wave guide is also called a Magnetron Tube. It is the main part of the microwave which produces the microwave energy . If this part is not functioning it is best to replace the entire unit, rather than have it repaired .

The microwave won't heat the food. Everything is running except and the lights are on but the food is still cold.


Seems like you have a bad magnetron and it may need to be replaced or you may just want to save yourself the hassle, and get a replacement. Hope that helps.

Microwave runs but food does not heat


If everything appears to work as normal but does not heat, then the magnetron will be faulty. This is the device which cooks the food, however this can be an expensive part to replace & may not be economical to fix.
