Microwave not heating up food

I have a magic chef microwave; model # MC0153UW. It sounds like its on, then it makes a humming noise. The turntable is not working, and it is not heating up the food. It's just over two years old , and since it's over range a pain to replace. Any suggestions?

This model is a lower-end type that probably didn't cost very much. Since it's over 2 years old, you have no warranty left. Most appliance repair shops charge extra $$ for servicing installed items in the home. You'd probably be better off purchasing a new comparable model. The labor fee alone might equal what you paid for it.

It could be the turntable motor but you need to check for food debris under the 3 point stand that the platter rests on. Take the stand out of the oven and check the wheels etc, Magic Chef Microwave Turntable Motor 3966820810

Microwave not heating up


If the microwave is not heating check magnetron connections, probably you will need to replace the magnetron.

Take the tray and the plastic piece the tray sits on out of the microwave. There is a small motor that turns the turntable. It is probably bad. You should be able to replace the motor from the bottom of the microwave. Part number is 3966820200.

There are two things that come to mind, the magnetron is starting to fail, or the strapping has come loose on the fan motor housing, unplug microwave oven and remove top, [several screws] carefully inspect the fan for any loose mounts and tighten.

The microwave turns on, but it does not heat the food.


To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptoms ("runs but no heat"), as well as the answers to these questions:

- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

(A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.)

We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.

Magic Chef MCO 153 UQ heats but doesnt' turn


You can still use it, but must be aware that this is a relatively high power microwave, so food will burn if it isn't turned.

Sounds like the Magnetron has stopped working. The Magnetron is is a specially designed powerful magnet that generates the high frequency microwave energy used to heat food.
