Magnetron tube probably failed. Depends on how old the microwave is. If its still under warranty, call Frigidaire. If not, take it to a repair shop, get an estimate, and compare it to a new one. It'll probably be cheaper to buy a newer one that will have more power, but check anyway.

Remove the cover from the microwave. Where the door latches are you will find a couple small black switches. The buttons on the switches will be depressed when the door is closed. Check the switches to see if any are burned up or broken. They should have somewhat of a snap feeling when depressed with your fingers. If one is bad the machine will not heat. Replace the switch.
Usually when it doesn't het there is a problem with either the magnetron or one of the power tranistors. You would have to get a shop to tell you what the problem is as it can be a few things. If you have warrenty either maytags or from the store just find out from the store/maytag where the repair depot is. They will either repair or replace it. If no warrenty then don;t do anything without getting an estimate. It may be just as cheap to buy a new microwave.
This can be caused by a number of causes: a bad magnetron tube (which generates the microwaves), failed transformer or other power supply parts, bad control board or relay on it, bad door switch. Microwave servicing exposes hazardous voltages, and could lead to microwave leakage if repairs aren't done properly. Repairs should be handled by a professional.
I have the same problem. Everything seems to work except it doesn't heat up food.
I remember last time when it was working. I pressed the start botton before I closed the door. So it didn't start automatically, and I pushed start and it worked(it still heat up the food), but it doesn't work now. Help Please!!!
I have a Whirlpool Gold GH5184XPQ.
