Difficult to say on yours. You may try the following. On the back or side, if there is a little cover that's screwed into the panel. Otherwise browse around on the inside. Be sure to unplug the micro before checking. Once found be sure to replace with a microwave lamp and not a fridge lamp. There is a difference. Good Luck,JUS004

SOURCE: filter replacement
That's covered on page 20 & 21 of your owner's manual under the heading"CHARCOAL FILTER REPLACEMENT"
1. Unplug oven or turn off power at the main power
2. Open the door.
3. Remove the two vent grille mounting screws. (3 middle screws)
4. Slide the grille to the left, then pull straight out.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts (including filters) by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Never run the microwave without a load (something to heat)!!! That kills the microwave generating parts.
Sounds like a 'thermal' protect switch is activating after running. Make sure that (if the unit is mounted in a cabinet) that there is sufficient space around the unit for proper air flow and that nothing is blocking the vents. Try setting it on a counter top and heat something. If it works properly and doesn't shut off, the venting space is the problem. You may have to have the cabinet that it sits in redesigned for more clearance.

SOURCE: Tappan over range has no heat!
You have a bad high voltage diode, bad filter capacitro or a bad magnatron. The diode and capacitor does not cost very much. You can get them at www.mcmelectroncs.com . Replacement would mean removing the unit from under the counter, remove the case. Locate the diode and capacitor. They should be near the power section and the diode is attached to the chassis and one side of the filter capacitor. After replaceing both parts if the unit will not heat you would need a new magnatron. The part is fairly expensive but depending on the cost of your unit it may pay to replace it. Let me know if you need anymore help.
Thanks for using FixYa
