Hi jhaskell7,

If it's under a year, it should still be under warranty. Use it. They'll probably just give you a new one.

If I can be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it accordingly.

Thanks in-advance for using Fixya.com,

Jon

If the microwave oven is 7 years old or less, the cause is a bad magnetron, or the inverter board is malfunctioning, due to cost in parts and labour cheaper to replace.

GE eterna spacemaker microwave won't heat


The problem is a magnetron, "heart of the system" or the inverter board, "if 7 years old or less" and possibly the keypad control board, all of these items are not cheap and lethal voltages are present.

Power works, everything seems normal but no heat


microwave ovens do not produce heat, they produce microwaves. the heat comes from whatever is excited by the microwaves. In your case i would bet that the magnatron (microwave tube) has become defective. If this oven is less than 5 years old, the magnatron may be under warranty. depending on the model it may be repaired at no cost to you. In the case of Kenmore (Sears) you would take the oven to their customer service dept and they will send it in for you for evauation. they will charge you $50.00 US this amount will be applied to the repair if you choose to have it fixed. If the Magnatron is bad and is under warranty, they will fix it, and return it to you along with a refund of you $50.00.

Doesn't heat


If the microwave is working ok, it should heat up. First check the fuse inside if it ok then it looks like your microwave generator has gone bad. You will have to take it to the vendor and have it fixed with warranty.
