If the unit functions other than the turntable it is likely a bad motor or switch that is engaged when door is closed

SOURCE: My microwave is no longer putting out any heat

Not many people will repair microwaves because they are mostly an uneconomical repair when the magnatron or diode goes.it is best,cheaper and safer to replace.

SOURCE: microwave still works but no longer heats food

I am assuming that all the heat funtions defrost included do not work.
This can be a few things first you need to open the cover(make sure the unit is unplugged) then on the controll panell side you will find a pc board locate the fuse on the board and test ,reolace if blown ,if this does not solve your problem then look on the base plate there you will see a big block called a transformer one of the wires on this will have (normally)a white tube like piece of plastic open and locate the fuse test and replace in need be,if this still does not solve then you need to check the capacitor a silver unit that the wire with the white fuse box attaches to NOW BE CAREFULL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! this caries a large electrical load before you remove take a insulated screw driver and short the two points it should give a spark if it does then leave it alone if not replace,last is the maganatron that has blown assuming all the above is working////////// Advise do your reserch it is often cheaper to replace the unit than repairing it.Please ensure that you use insulated tools DO NOT!!! use your bear hands to remove wires or fuses a microwave can give a nasty shock and heart you SAFTY FIRST PLEASE

Food in microwave is burning on edge and cold in the center


you may find the old unit was lower watts so took longer & cooked/heated better all the way through. a way to fix this is lower temp settings or pause and stir the food to help heat it up more even.

I have kitchen aid microwave modelkcms185jss starts runs fine but does not heat food at all.


Does not heat food means a problem on magnetron tube and fuse blown in high voltage area. Have it replaced and it will heat again.

Perhaps the "repairman" should take another look at it. A lot of microwave ovens have an aerial that directs the energy out to the load or food to be heated.
Maybe...maybe not but worth a look behind the waveguide cover I would say.

Microwave wont heat food. Everything else works.


Micorwave doesn't work when the megatron tube is out. That's probably why it won't heat up. Either replace microwave or the tube. You can get the number from Sears for the megatron tube by calling customer support.

Microwave no longer heats up, regardles of setting


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.
