How can I get my microwave to actually heat when everything else (cook time, power level, clock, etc., are set and seem to be running?


Sounds like the MW Emitter is not working or the wave guide is disconnected. If it is the wave guide then you can fix it yourself if you take the rear cover off. It is the pipe, which in cross section is quite rectangle shaped with rounded corners. It should be connected to the emitter at one end and the opaque guide cover at the other with no breaks. If the emitter is faulty then seek professional help.

My microwave doesnt work


If you hear an unusual buzzing noise, the magnetron (the component that actually generates the microwaves) or other electronic module may be broken. This is not easily fixed; contact a service technician.

Thanks,

Microwave light and clock work but no heat


Could be one of the three door switches. If the fan turns on when cooking and no heat then the magnetron is bad. Most problems are the switches

Ihave a Jenn-Air JMV8196 microwave oven. The clock works,the fan works and the light works. Not sure why the microwave will not come on to cook. Help?


The problem is caused by one of three things, the magnetron "heats food" the high voltage diode "sometimes shorts" or the high voltage capacitor " shorts"

Hi my microwave is not heating food


There is a tube I believe, in microwaves that produce the waves that heat the food. A fan usually disperses the waves to make the heating more even, rather than cooking one spot and leaving the rest cold or frozen.

Replace it. Cheaper than the fix, unless it is only the fan. But you still have to take it in, and there will be a service charge on top of the parts replacement.

Whirlpool MH1150XMB-0 runs but does not heat food


If the housing of the unit isn't too difficult to remove (normally 3-5 Phillips screws around the rear edge), with the unit unplugged of course, check for a user replaceable fuse inside. The magnetron is separately fused and fuses can fail due to metal fatigue. It will be high amperage; 10-20 amperes and many hardware stores will have them. BTW, there is no residual radiation from a magnetron that isn't operating.

My microwave want heat up it has been getting moisture all in it when it was cooking clock works turntable works light works it does not heat up it smells like it is a defect


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

JVM1190 wont cook


You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.
