Runs for 22 seconds and cuts off


The Magnetron have a cut out thermostat, therefore the magnetron is over heated.
1.Check first the ventilation grill if it is clean.
2. Ventlitation fan if is working if not replace.
3. If the baove are ok then you need a new magnetron.
4. There is a very small chance that is the control board but we don't sagest to replace since the cost of new one is almost the cost of a new microwave.

Whirlpool model number MH7140XFB no longer heats


you either need a new h.v. capacitor or h.v. diode in the magnetron circuitry if you cant hear it cycle when it runs as in a low pitched hummmm when its drawing current to operate the magnetron tube, each part runs about $30 to $45 each,normally its the h.v. capacitor though

It's probably the Magnetron. They usually go out.
Most older ovens have a fuse that goes out with it and shuts the unit down. A repair shop should be able to replace the Magnetron at a reasonable cost.

Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwave that heats the food. The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave . Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing. There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.

Whirlpool Microwave no longer heating


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.

Sanyo Microwave EM-G4775 - doesn't heat up......


It's probably a loose connection at the magnetron or a bad magnetron.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

Some manufacturers (in the US anyway) will send you the magnetron to do it yourself. If nothing else, you can save about $75US by taking it to the shop yourself.

Apparently you're in the UK, judging by the model number.

You can find Sanyo UK microwave owner's manuals here.

Won't cook but everything works like it should


Good idea to run at half power. Good thinking. That can sometimes reveal an overheating magnetron.

Does it seem to buzz or hum louder than normal?

If so, you may have a shorted high voltage diode or a bad magnetron. If not, I only suspect the magnetron.

If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

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

We have critical safety & disassembly info (including a how-to video) at our site, linked here.

There should 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.

Whirlpool customer service is here.
