Return it. If it already doesn't work then there is clearly a problem. Go for Panasonic, they are a trusted company and I've had my Panasonic NN-SD372S for a year and a half and couldn't be happier.

SOURCE: the microwave does not heat
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 would suggest that the overheat stat on the magnetron has blown. If you are happy it's a simple thing to do but just make sure you disconnect from the mains before removing the cover and make sure that the High voltage capacitor is discharged. If you are not sure a qualified service tech will be able to fix this for you at little cost.
Hope this helps
