LG Microwave MS-2347B will not heat up

My LG Microwave is unplugged most of the time, unless I want to use it. I was trying to heat up some pasta today and discovered it is not heating up the food at all regardless of the time I set in for the heating. I can see the glass tray rotating properly and the light inside is on but there is no heat at all after the time is up. Help please!

    Any unusual noises? Is
    it louder or quieter than usual?



    We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here.

If you are a handyman or good with tools, its a do it yourself job. But first open it up and check if teh belt has snapped or just slipped off. The belt will just cost you a few bucks.

SOURCE: Microwave is not working

Yes. This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a misaligned door hinge.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Door switch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or by opening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

There are plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switches and onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimes it's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tab can be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

One test that sometimes helps is to gently lift up (and/or push down) on the door or handle as you try to start it. If it works or tries to work, then it's a door switch mount or door alignment issue.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical information on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

There may also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

I purchased a later model glass tray which was redesigned and now it works fine.Just take your tray to the store and compare it to a newer one and you will see the difference.

How to replace door switch on advantium


Happened to my 2005 Advantium120 twice, both times after extended cooking/simmering on the cooktop (17" below). Solution was to leave unplugged for a good 48 hours (to dry out?) then plug in again and all is good. GE says to either raise the microwave 4" or stop boiling pasta on the stove, neither a good solution. Good luck!

LG MS-1943ALT Micowave not working, light, fan and turntable all work, no heat


From the decription that you have provided, the magnetron is highly suspect and is the most expensive part to replace, cheaper to replace the microwave oven in the long run.

Model MS 2327 B, works but is not heating up anything


This is a very common fault on microwave ovens and is usually caused by a failed magnetron. This is the device which produces the microwaves and it is the single most expensive component. Magnetrons don't really have a fixed lifespan, they can last for twenty years or more or can go pop the first day they're used.

Replacement is usually straightforward (make sure to obtain a new microwave collar as the old one cannot be re-used safely) but rarely cost-effective. Unless the oven remains under warranty it's always far quicker and usually much cheaper to replace the oven, especially as yours is a budget model.

Sharp microwave losing cooking power


If the supply voltage is low it will take long time to heat foods. The second reason is the Magnetron. Since it is in the warranty period you can call at the sharp authorised service center. They will do it free of coast.

If we close the mircowave door the units start to run by itself. - it will not heat, but the light comes on and the turntable rotates it will not stop until we turn the power off - when power is turned...


i think you have a welded controller, either a digital one or a mechanical one. microwave won't run unless you switch it to run. the door switches are safety switches to turn off the microwave once you open the door. if you have a digital controller, you could have a welded relay, if you have a mechanical timer, it could be a welded contact at the timer. another thing is that it should heat what ever you are heating. if it is not heating, check if it has a fuse and if it is busted. some fuse are installed to protect only the magnetron that is why the light and turn table are still running. if there is no fuse to the magnetron, then check the diode from the capacitor to the ground. it could be open. if not then you can have a bad magnetron. i hope i was able to help.
