    All a sudden doesn't heat food any more.

  • dspaul4 Dec 17, 2008

    Everything appears to be working as normal however it generates no heat and this started yesterday when took 5 minutes to melt a stick of butter at 50% power and then later took 8 minutes to pop some of the corn in a microwave popcorn bag. Then after that the unit stopped heating all together. Any suggestions?

The most common causes for a lack of heating are a bad door switch, a loose connection on the magnetron, a bad magnetron, bad connection on the control circuit board, a bad relay on the board, bad high voltage diode, or bad high voltage transformer.

Inside the oven. There are usually 3 fuses. 2 are on the board, while one is on a wire enclosed in a plastic twist to open capsule. The fuses in a microwave oven is a little bit specialized. Be sure to get the proper replacement part.

I am suspecting that your microwave has cheap chinese relays inside and instead of plating the part where electricity goes through with a high temperature metal that is a thick enough coating they used a cheaper metal. When they do that a relay arcs an spot welds itself open or closed. A strong tap on the control board (once taken apart) will release it. I advise to have a look at the control board for overheating, or burnt circuit board traces as well.

The microwave will not heat food. It will turn on the turntable will go around and the time will count down but the food is not heated when done. tried different heat setting with no results.


This seems to be a common problem, there are three parts that will cause this, the magnetron "heats food" a common failure, the high voltage diode and capacitor are the other two culprits. The cost to repair will approach the price of a new oven.

Whirlpool MH1150XMB-0 runs but does not heat food


If the housing of the unit isn't too difficult to remove (normally 3-5 Phillips screws around the rear edge), with the unit unplugged of course, check for a user replaceable fuse inside. The magnetron is separately fused and fuses can fail due to metal fatigue. It will be high amperage; 10-20 amperes and many hardware stores will have them. BTW, there is no residual radiation from a magnetron that isn't operating.
