    I have the same issue. It counts down but it won't heat up. Could this be because of a surge in power? Like if the circuit breaker was flicked on and off to the outlet it was plugged in to? Would that blow something and make it act like that?

You have either a bad keypad or control board.

If you have operation of some buttons and not others its the keypad. if you have no operation out of the buttons at all you have a bad control board.

If you turn your microwave on and it sets and the timer counts down you have a bad interlock switch..

please let me know exactly what your microwave does when you set the cook time

If you try to heat something for a minute , the microwave will turn on for about 15 seconds then shut off . It doesn't even seem to warm the food.


It may need a reset. You can do that by unplugging the power for a minute or two, then plugging it back in and setting the clock.

If it still fails, you may have a failing cooling fan or a problem on the control circuit board.

Electrolux microwave buzzes and food doesn't heat up


If the unit operates correctly except heating the food, then the unit needs a new magnetron.

My microwave won't heat anything up. The light comes on, the plate turns round and it makes all the right noises but it doesn't heat anything up.


Since the light and fan work the main board or the processor is working .Now identify the parts by clicking this link: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/microwave/a/5/141/identifying-microwave-parts.html

As there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off. Check the wave guide covers, if food had deposited
then it must be checked or replaced.

See link: http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/microwave/a/5/1146/how-to-replace-a-microwave-guide-cover.html

Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on, use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely

Thank You for using FIXYA.

A part called the magnetron tube supplies the microwaves which heat your food. It's possible the tube has gone bad. It's also possible that other problems are keeping the proper power from being applied to let the tube work.

Microwave ovens use hazardous voltages WHICH CAN KILL YOU, so troubleshooting is best left to professionals with the tools and experience to work on them safely. If this is a basic counter-top oven, it may be more economical just to replace it. Otherwise let a qualified technician determine what has gone wrong and give an estimate to repair.

you need to remove the outer cover,then carefully discharge the high voltage capacitor with 2 insulated screwdrivers or an insulated jumper wire,then test this and the high voltage diode and the internal ceramic fuse for continuity

Does not heat food


It could be 3 problems. 1. the part that spits out the microwaves needs replacement, door hinge switch is broken, or circuit board need replacement. First check with Whirlpool and see if it is under warranty still. Call a repair man. See www.repairclinic.com .
