Question about KitchenAid KHMS155LSS 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
All other functions ok, but will not heat.
The main purpose of a microwave oven is to generate microwaves to heat food in the compartment so if it doesn't do that, then chances are that a component has failed. The fact that everything else seems to work suggests that you at least have ac power getting to the controls. You more than likely have a bad magnetron tube , filament transformer or high voltage capacitor that failed as part of the microwave generating system and it is not something that the untrained person should attempt to fix. Even unplugged, the high voltage capacitor remains charged up sufficiently enough to cause serious injury to someone. I've always been an advocate of the good old saying that if the cost to repair exceeds the cost to replace...then simply replace it. Even if you get an appliance tech to examine it, chances are his fee and the components that he finds defective will more than offset a replacement appliance.. I wish I could have suggested a better alternative for you..
