Re: normally hw many minutes it takes to heat water or...

I can't view all of your question, so I will answer this to the best of my ability. If you're talking about heating a cup of water, it normally takes 1 minute or less for the standard microwave oven on HIGH. About 2 minutes if you want boiling water. I hope this is what you were asking. If not, provide me with another question and I'll see if I can give you a better answer.

Food not getting heated

There are three common issues, magnetron "heats food" cracked high voltage diode, or a shorted high voltage capacitor. In order to find out you will need a professional to assess, it will be probably cheaper to replace the microwave oven.

If your microwave runs, but doesn'theat your food, verify that you have selected a cooking setting. You mayaccidentally set the timer. Test the magnetron by placing 1 cup of water in themicrowave and heating the water for three minutes. If the water doesn't heat,your magnetron is dead.

I don,t know how to use the microwave to boil water or warm food quickly.

Microwaves differ in power so you need to determine how long it takes your microwave to boil water. Great care should be taken as because if left to cook too long, water can become super heated and cause serious injury.
To determine how long yours takes, put about a cup of water in a microwave safe mug with a handle in the center of the oven and run it for about 1 minute. Remove VERY CAREFULLY and check the temperature with a meat thermometer. Repeat until you get the water up to about 180 degrees F. Note the number of minutes and use that going forward.

Microwave lights up plate turns something hums inside but the inside of the microwave never produces heat.

Sounds pretty normal but the inside is not supposed to get hot - only the food is.

Try heating a half glass of water for 1 minute if it gets hot... its working - if not then the actual microwave generating device inside has probably died.
In that case buy a new microwave oven as the cost of parts and labour to repair is usually more than cost of buying a new one.,

Crackling and popping sounds when you heat up food

thats normal water expanding and boiling off from the microwave boiling those tiny water pockets in food... sounds like popcorn sometimes.
Cover your food with a paper towel to avoid spatter on the ceiling of the microwave when this is happening.

First: never attempt heating pure water in a microwave, that is dangerous.

Ensure the oven is not set to the minimum power, otherwise the heating will be minimal.

Try heating some food at maximum power for two or three minutes, if it does not heat, take it back to the shop.
