SOURCE: My frigidaire FMV156DBF microwave stopped turning on, but the countdown timer function still works.Is this a controlpad issue or dead magnetron issue? If dead, what is the warranty for the magnetron?

A bad door switch, or mis-aligned latch assembly will cause this problem on some ovens.

It runs but no heat

common probelm with microwaves if everything is working on unit with the exception of the heat itself... then it is very possible the magnetron or the thermal fuse to the magnetron has failed... usually yoiu can access this behind the control panel/control board assembly and test with a volt meter ... the magnetron is what does the heating and is common failure based on your description of problem.... if it is magnetron then the cost is sometimes high to have replaced and will have to be weighed into option of replacement.... most magnetrons have a 3-5 year warranty so it may be beneficial to have a servicer look at it if still under warranty and you may only be out labor cost
good luck to you .....

My Frigidaire microwave is less than a year old. It is making a loud noise while running. So it runs loudly but does not heat up food. Is there a simple fix or did I get a dud?

The symptoms of loud noise and no heat indicate a short in the magnetron or high voltage diode. Need to take it to a qualified repair, to figure out what the problem. The magnetron replacement can cost as much as a new oven. See what the warranty covers, maybe you might luck out.

Frigidaire Professional series microwave won't heat

The most likely problem is the magnetron. Check your warranty in owners manual, I believe you have five year warranty on magnetron.

Grinding or dragging noise (model # PLMB209DC)

Unless it's a fan dragging (evidenced by reduced air flow) I would suspect the magnetron is failing.

Even though labor and the other parts are out of warranty, they still cover the magnetron for 10 years.

Convection oven problem

Most of the time the magnetron is defective if the food is not heating up.
In some cases there is a defective low power transformer or other componenents associated with the magnetron.
I would suggest to check the owners manual under the warranty section. Sometimes the magnetron has 5 years warranty.
Good Luck.
