Question about Samsung SMH9187ST Microwave Oven
Cooked a plate of bacon (no issues), went to cook a second plate and it wouldn't cook. Everything else appears to work (light comes on, counts down, table turns, can even hear the "humming" of the magnetron). Doesn't heat (sometime barely heats) food.

While it's possible it could be a door switch or mount, it's most likely a bad magnetron or a bad connection at the magnetron or on the control board.

if your microwave does everything you have described , and you can hear the cooling fan running as well after you press the start button , you probably have a faulty wave guide. The wave guide is also called a Magnetron Tube. It is the main part of the microwave which produces the microwave energy . If this part is not functioning it is best to replace the entire unit, rather than have it repaired .

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.

The most common cause of the problem you described is a burned fuse. It is normally located inside the case, directly on a wire leading from the transformator to the magnetron. If you are not sure about those parts, please get a professional to fix the issue.
