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.

Why


The table motor belt may have detached which stops table from rotating and the magnetron control shuts off the heating if table does not move. Need model number etc for the microwave. It is not recommended to open the units unless you are qualified technician or understand the operation of the microwave oven. The voltages and waves can harm human body.

Turn table


See the following suggestions from Repairclinic:

The carousel won't turnAlthough the carousel is usually driven by a small motor that's unrelated to the heating function of the microwave, the microwave cabinet needs to be opened to repair it. So we recommend that you seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician. Inspect the plastic drive coupling that the tray sits on, as well as the ring-and-roller assembly, to make sure that they're working properly.

MICROWAVE WILL NOT HEAT


check the connections on the h.v side because the unit works on 4500 volts and if there are any bad connctions it will not reach its working voltage and will not energize.remove all the connections 1 at a time and tighten all the terminals and try it again.you will not be able to test the components with a digital multimetre as it does not have the range.you need an analoge unit with a 10k scale and a 9 volt battery inside or it will give you falsr readings.teh diode which is thge little black unit with 1 side down to earth should read half way with the laeds on 1 way then when you put it on the opposite side it should not move.the capacitor will make the needle of the multimetre flick up when put onto the terminals both ways.the magnetron should have a short reading on the terminals but with 1 connected to the terminal of the input and 1 to the case it should not read at all,hope this helps regards les
