It's more likely to be a software problem, not hardware.

First, I'd give it a good reset by unplugging it for a minute or so, then plugging it back in, and trying it again.

If that doesn't work, check the settings on the menus. It may be turned off. Consult your owner's manual.

If for some reason you don't have yours, you can download Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help or see our Web site.

There are three reasons for this, a bad magnetron "common problem" or a high voltage diode and capacitor can be a factor. If the magnetron is at fault it is cheaper to replace the microwave oven.

Whirlpool gold gh5184xpb Everything seems to be working but it doesn't heat. If you use the buttons for popcorn or dinner plate, an error message F3H appears. Recently got a wireless router in our home...


its very unlikley to be the wireless router,,,
things like this just happen,,,i would say the magnatron had gust given up the ghost, thats the part that gets the food hot,,,safest bet is have it looked at but get ready to buy a new unit as its likley to be the cheepest way out
please dont go poking about inside your microwave,,
it will still have 1000's of volts inside it,,, these volts will kill you if you tuch the wrong part,,be warned!!!

Microwave does not heat/cook


hi

power spikes are very damaging to a microwaves internal parts, it sounds like your transformer and/or magnetron are blown. if the unit is out of warranty I would recommend calling a repairman or getting a new microwave (the transformer & magnetron are expensive and dangerous to work on) also get a small single plug surge protector for the new one.
