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

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

SOURCE: my microwave onen is not heating anything

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

I have aclock on a frigidaire microwave that is loosing time


A defective clock would be the cause, the voltage is regulated by the oven circuit board, so line voltage would rally need to be way off to affect the operation of the clock. Ranges of line voltage here in USA are 110V-120V

Why does my brand new microwave produce lots of internal moisture when heating ready meals?


The new oven is providing more heat to your food, causing more water to boil out of it by the time it is done. It may be OK to shorten your cooking times in response to the higher power efficiency if it bothers you. Then again, maybe you bought a microwave steam oven. They're cool.

My new Haier microwave isn't working! I just plugged it in for the first time, and set the clock on it. Then I tried to turn it on. No matter what cook time I enter, and then press start/30 sec., nothing...


When it times down but doesnt heat it is typically a problem with the door switches, especially one you just bought, may have been from shipping . A switch or connection may have been disodged when being shipped to you. Most machines have something like 4-5 wswitches, If 1 doesnt report right it will stiop the unit from running. But since some of them are closed it will accept the programing and try to operate. So a lot of times you get fan running and tray turning but no power to the secondary circuits. You will need to find out who does warranty for them or return it where you bought it as a defective unit.

All leds, timer, fan etc working but microwave will hot even heat water. Control panel, turntable and light inside oven works also.


The problem is one of three things, the magnetron is defective "common issue" or the high voltage capacitor and diode may be a factor, repairs could be close to a new microwave oven.

I bought I microwave in the USA and I had it installed in my home in Brazil and appers working well but it doesn´t heat. What I could do to solve this problem?


Was it new? normaly when a microwave deos not heat it means the magnetron is dead (that's the part of the oven that produces the microwaves) or it could be a burned fuse, if it's a dead magnetron it is almost as expensive as a new oven.

Good luck!

Burning smell and won't heat.


If it buzzes real loud it's probably the high volyage diode. However some times if it smells it's the transformer. Usually the diode is a cheap fix ~$10.00 but this model the diode is $50. It's number 50 on the link below. Let me know how it works out or you need anything else.
