Sharp 1200w microwave seems to be tripping lightly (can hear clicking noises)and cause heating to be irregular

Clean the food off the inside top of the microwave Now,Or that noise you are hear will stop along with the microwave. The food gets on the Formica Squire which is how the micro waves heat your food. 1st unplug the Microwave then spray the inside of the unit with something like Fantastic or something strong and use glove so you don't burn you hand,Also if you have a scrub brush use it,And clean all the soap out and raise very well.

I press #1 and hit start the blower works and light comes on but no heat

Sounds like the magnetron circuit has failed. It is the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. It often shorts out, and makes a loud humming or buzzing noise when it fails. It's not usually cost effect to replace since the part alone can cost as much as a new oven.

Does not heat

try checking the door switches. they can get just loose enough to not make good contact. the door may be sagging just a fraction.
good luck

M/N GLMV168KS4 - makes a rattling noise when heating food, but otherwise heats properly. All other functions are working. Any ideas of the problem?

It can be a sign of dying magnetron and possible damage to the microwaves chute. If the chute is damaged then the microwave is not repairable. Check the manufacturer warranty on the magnetron.

The failing transformer will cause a deep "growling" noise; the failure of the magnetron will sound more like a sizzle.

My GE spacemaker microwave won't heat and makes an unusual sound

I have the same problem on my oven- model JVM1640WB and called an appliance repairman who is honest and reliable (I've used him before). He said the problem is with the electrode, to fix it is roughly $300. He recommended buying a new microwave rather than fixing it.

Not working

When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician, as repairing microwaves is a pretty risky job.
