SOURCE: microwave will not heat food

I have the same problem and have figured out the following:
Most likely it is the magnetron - common problem for GE's. Replacement part list price is around $180 but you can find on ebay for about $80. Replacement is "doable" but tricky because the oven needs to be removed to replace the part. The GE replacement kit part # for magnetron and stirrer is WB27X10489. Expect a service tec to charge at least $200-$225 to make the repair so complete replacement of microwave might make more sense...unfortunately.

2 slices of bread wrapped in paper towel microwave set on defrost set 35 seconds caught fire


Microwaves work by friction. They blast water molecules in the food so they move fast, just like rubbing your hands together makes them hot. Some types of microwave in defrost mode actually apply FULL POWER for a short period of time so to make the product warm to the touch. This heat then penetrates down to the core of the food, ensuring full defrost. In your case the heat was sufficient enough to heat the dry paper towel to set it on fire.
Bread is better defrosted on the low power setting as sliced bread is very thin. Items should only be defrosted on the defrost setting that are thick and need to be completely defrosted on the inside. Remember microwaves only penetrate the surface of food, making that hot. Thermal conduction does the rest.
You should never use paper towels in a microwave unless the instructions for doing the food say so. You wouldn't put a paper towel in a gas or electric oven, so don't put them in a microwave.

How do I get the heat to work?


Hi Marc, there is no 'heat' per say with microwave ovens as one would find in a convection oven. Microwave ovens operate by generating electromagnetic fields (within the microwave band) that causes water molecules in the food item to vibrate/rotate creating friction/heat - within the food item as opposed to the surrounding space (this would be convection)

Whirlpool microwave have power, not heating up food or water


The problem is most likely the magnetron, or the inverter board, "7years old or less" and possibily the keypad control board.

Does not heat food but appliance cabinet gets very warm, some warpage of appliance liner.


One solution could be that the vents of the microwave need cleaning out.You can do this by just pulling out the blockage.
Then see if it will heat food.

It's not getting heat and LCD looks like there's water inside.


On most Sharp Carousel Microwaves, the display stops working after time. As for the not getting any heat, the magnetron or the high voltage transformer may not be working.
