SOURCE: Turntable has suddenly stopped working.

The turntable motor may be bad, if you've confirmed the switch is working. The motor is located under the bottom of the microwave and has the shaft penetrating through the bottom of the oven cavity with a drive coupler attached. The coupler is what drives the glass carousel tray. The motor can be accessed by unplugging the microwave and removing the bottom panel screws. The motor is held in by a couple of screws and two connecting wires. The coupler will lift up and pull off the motor shaft from inside the oven.

You can view this part and exploded view diagrams of your microwave at appliancepartspros.com. Just type in your model number and look under the "Magnetron and Air Flow" heading for item 6 (part number AP 3119645).

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron)))

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. It is the magnetron that generates the microwaves that heat the food. If it or the circuit that powers it fails then it stops heating. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.

Check if the stepper motor is ok, the fuses (the little ones too) if they are blow first.

My 5 yr old Whirlpool microwave stopped heating food. All other lights, displays, fan and turntable work. What could be the trouble?


If you do not have any experience in the repair of microwave ovens do not engage in their repairs because it is one of the most dangerous household appliances and the consequences can be disastrous. According to your description, low voltage circuit (220V or 110V) works well (light, turntable...). Obviously the problem is in a high voltage (HV) circuit which is made up of the magnetron, HV diode (rectifier), HV capacitor and HV fuse or protect diode. Failure is in any of these components in "HV circuit" or in the main board.

Microwave will not heat


If the microwave is 7 years old or less, there are too things that come to mind, defective magnetron, or the inverter board, cost should be considered when going ahead with repairs.

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.

It works normal but doesn't heat.its 11 yrs. Old. Do I repair or replace it.


It would be much easier, and cost efficient to replace the Microwave, especially if no heat is being generated.

If the light, or turntable went out or something, maybe then a repair would be more reasonable.

THeood is not getting heated and the turntable is


the unit inside the microwave that heats called the "magnetron" has gone bad or the circuits that power the magnetron and turntable have failed. if its under warranty still, send it back to the manufacturer. if not you can call some repair shops and see how much it would be to service it, but its most likely going to be cheaper to purchace a new microwave since they are relatively cheap these days, and electronics repair people are not cheap. hope this helps

Whirlpool MH1140XM: has power, but no heat, turntable not spin.


Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.
