Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

I found the fix to the F3H error on another site. Just turn the power to the microwave off for ~2 minutes at the circuit breaker, and then turn it back on. Microwave will start working again then.

This is most likely the high voltage fuse between the transformer and the magnetron. An easy and cheap fix.

Hi I am using kenwood microwave since last6 years.but now from last one year it suddenly started make sound while not in working and now it is not heating. Plz guide what to do


Time to throw it away. Microwave ovens can be dangerous if not working correctly. Micro-waves, (The actual waves themselves) can be lethal. Unless you really know what you are doing, do not under any circumstances dismantle the machine and switch it on. The cabinet of the machine is designed as a protective box and should stop random waves escaping and cooking anything else including you own insides. Generally Microwave ovens are uneconomical to repair, for the parts and labour you can buy a new one. Buy the most powerful you can. If you buy anything that is below 1000 Watts make sure it has a turn table. Remember that the more you place in a microwave oven, the longer it takes to cook. If you have a big family and you can afford it, you might like to think about a commercial oven 1600 - 1800 watts, that can cope well with large quantities well and will cook a tin of baked beans in less than a minute.

Ge adora over the range microwave, runs but does not heat


Microwaves contain high-voltage parts that can be deadly, even when unplugged, unless handled correctly. Unless you are a qualified expert, don't attempt to get into its inner workings.

First, use this water method to double-check if there is actually an issue with your microwave not heating:

1. Fill a glass measuring cup with water to the 1-cup mark.
2. Set the microwave to heat on full power for 1 minute.
3. Repeat the process with fresh water a handful of times.
4. If the water is not consistently warm, your problem is confirmed.

If your microwave is failing to heat correctly, you may be on a previously programmed setting. Press the STOP/CANCEL button and start the heating process again, but use a higher power setting. This may correct the problem.

If the microwave senses an open door, it will not run. Check to see if a defective or loose door-safety interlock switch is to blame. If tightening it doesn't work, a replacement may be necessary.

Did you know? Neglecting to hit the STOP/CANCEL button on the microwave before you open the door to remove your food damages the safety switch over time.

Microwaves installed above the range may be affected by steam from cooking. Condensation collecting on the circuitry can interrupt heating. Allow the circuitry to dry out by avoiding stovetop cooking for a few days. If you're still having the same problem, it could be a loose connection in the circuitry or a faulty door safety switch.

There may be an issue with the circuit board and its connections, and that work is best left to a qualified professional.

A buzzing or humming microwave that emits a faint burning smell could signal a damaged magnetron, high-voltage capacitor or diode. Replacement magnetrons are expensive, so if a service professional determines that's the problem, you may be better off buying a new microwave. Capacitor and diode parts cost much less, but remember, you'll be paying for the expertise to have them installed correctly and safely. It may still make more sense to buy a new microwave, especially if it's a simple countertop model.

For more troubleshooting steps and simple solutions, read Microwave not heating. I hope this helps!

Not heating


Hello


Power Supply

Check whether there is a proper power supply. Look to see whether the cord is connected to a grounded 3-prong outlet and the cord is fully plugged in. If the electrical system is built-in and no power cord is visible, replace or reset the household fuse or circuit breaker.

Microwave Functions

Some basic microwave operational steps may affect whether the microwave is heating. Open and close the microwave door, as the unit will not function with the door open, and push "Stop/Clear" to cancel any previous settings, such as the timer, which do not heat the microwave oven.

Setting the Microwave

Once the power to the microwave has been reset, or verified as working, and the microwave is ready to run, select a new cook cycle and press "Start" to see if the microwave begins to run and cook food as expected. Allow the food to cook for the alloted time and then open the microwave door and check to see if the food has cooked or heated. Choose a longer cooking time and restart the microwave if food is heating but is cooking slowly.

Repair

If all efforts to troubleshoot the function and power to the microwave still do not get the appliance heating food as expected, there may be a repair issue that needs to be addressed. Contact professional technician for advice.

My microwave/convection oven will not heat up, but the lights and clock work


Hello

Look to see if the microwave power cord is securely plugged into a live power outlet. The power cord cannot be loose for proper function. Move other appliances to a separate outlet if possible.

Replace or reset the circuit breaker or fuse if blown or tripped.

Unplug the microwave and wait several seconds before plugging it back in to reset.

Make sure there are no current functions in use. Press "Clear/Off" to cancel any other settings or programs already in progress.


Select a new cooking program and then select "Cook Time." Make a time selection and press the "Start/Pause" pad to begin cooking.

I believe the dial on Hobart microwaves allows you to manually enter any amount of time by spinning the dial for the desired time, and programmable buttons to save the time settings. HL1600 is 1.5 cubic foot, 44 liters
