SOURCE: oster Microwave Model GOB 61101
The fuse in the white jacket ( 0.85 amp) is blown. Easy fix but unplug and watch out for the cap. It's located on the right back side between the transformer. The fuse looks like the old car glass buss fuses.

check the high voltage fuse on the inside of the unit if this is not showing a fault then you would most likely be looking at replacing the magnetron in your unit this is the most common piece beside the fuse that shorts out and is what is directly realted to what is actually heating your food depending on what type of microwave it is it may be cheaper to just buy another microwave if the place of origin on the microwave came from a walmart or target store where as buying a magnetron may cost you between 50-100 dollars which is about the price of a micro wave at one of these stores if you have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations Thanks Rick

SOURCE: Hi, I have an Oster
I bought-the oster microwave and like others it did not last long before it stop heating. I took (careful precaution!!) and (unplugged the the unit!!) to view the fuse which of course is the main problem why this microwave does not heat up. Everything else works well but the heating. But since I changed the fuse to something very close to the same amp of the actual fuse it did work fine next to nothing.
I did not find any problem other than the noheating. This should only be attempted by someone who is in fact has close knowledge of electricity. The process is safe (WITH THE CORRECT PRECAUTION!!).Ever since I replaced the fuse and found out that that was all it needed I have been using it for 8 mths. Note--I did take measures into my own hands which is not recommended by anyone. But it is the old-fashion way...

Check the door safety interlock switches for proper operation. #1 trouble with microwaves that operate in all respects but no heat.
Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com
