This is a sure sign that the MAGNATRON unit has went out on your oven and will need replaced! (This is what cooks the food!)

If the inside light, turntable and internal cooling fan all come on when you try to cook, but it's not heating, then check the bottom door switch and its mount.

My microwave doesn't work, but display works

I would strongly consider replacing the microwave oven, prices have dropped considerably. The problem you are describing is in the keypad controller board.

Oven suddenly lost heat, inside fuse is OK though. Display, fan, turntable all working. Is it magnetron or its power supply?

You're right, if the lights come on and turntable moves, it is most likely your magnetron.

I'm asking about a problem my parents have with their Sharp Carousel microwave. When using the oven, it stops after about a minute, then when the door is opened, the turntable starts revolving and the fan...

If this is a countertop microwave and is not an expensive unit, it will not be cost effective to pay someone to repair it. Best thing is to just buy a new microwave especially if it is very old. The cost of the repairs could easily be more than a new unit and sometimes you pay to have it repaired an then something else goes wrong. With the condition you describe I would not use this unit until it is repaired or replaced with a new one.

Microwave not heating up

Check the door switch, when it is faulty the oven will turn on but turntable, fan and magnetron wont operate.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

You can also order from MicrowaveSvc , they also provide parts.

Sharp 1870 just quit cooking and no turntable

The fact that the microwave and convection both do not heat indicated that the oven is in demo mode, check the user manual, otherwise it will possibly be a relay not triggering, may need a pcb replacement, check Demo mode 1st....Phil

Dacor dcm24s.light, fan, and control panel work but turntable and heat do not

Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.
