Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and

Microwave won't heat


This is very likely a faulty Magnetron especially as there is not heat. To repair this would mean replacing the Magnetron which is a fairly standard repair for a Microwave oven

Turn table won't turn on ewave microwave oven


Almost certain if microwave still heats a bad motor or gear issue inside the unit--if unit will not heat the safety switch in the side that the door engages is the cause of the wheel or platter not turning--prevents unit from use if door open.

Microwave won't heat food at all


If it has a platter does it turn? (possible safety switch in the door issue) Other than that a Diode, inverter board (diode might be on it) or the Magnetron bad.

My Oster OM1201eovg microwave will turn on but it won't heat what I put in there. What's the problem?


Either the inverter which powers things or the Magnatron which in effect does the heating are bad.

If a fairly expensive unit it may be worth repair as these are of course two of the more expensive parts in the unit.

Sharp Convection Microwave won't heat and turntable won't turn.


I typically find it is not door hinge issues but door switch issues, especially with sharp. You may heve a little movenent in the door hinge and that is allowing the door hook to move up and down on the plunger for a door switch that is probably a bit melted due to bad connections. If you check the door switches and look for any browning around the terminals where the wires push onto the switch you will probably find an overheated connectoion. Replace the bad switch and run better wires and better termninals to the new switch and it will probably be fine.
