Question about Microwave Ovens
When using the microwave, all functions are normal with the exception that the unit does not heat anything. the timer works, the table turns, it lights up and goes 'DING', but the food is as cold coming out as it was going in....
One of the following has failed -
Fuse (but these don't blow for no reason.).
These can be purchased and replaced, being careful to re-assemble all covers and housings exactly as disassembled. Same thing happened to my in-laws several years back.
You can find P/N's for each of the components listed above on the components themselves, or from an appliance website.
The only component that is testable is the transformer. Fuses can be replaced (see note above), but the diode and magnetron are not testable without special equipment. They are cheap enough anyway, when compared to the cost of replacing the whole unit.
But by all means, do not repair if you feel you cannot reassemble exactly as the unit came apart. Your dealing with invisible microwave radiation, and that can hurt you. An improperly reassembled unit is dangerous.
