Sounds like an electrolytic blew, but it could be any number of things. (Failure of one element could cause the failure of others, such as the magnetron, as well.) You could have it looked at, but if it's an inexpensive table-top microwave, it's less expensive to just go buy another.

How to fix loud hum and no heating in Sharp model R-308KW?


Hi,
There could be a variety of reasons why this happens, but the likeliest
reason is the secondary interlock or monitor switch is broken. These are micro switches that tell the microwave that the door is closed. If this switch is broken, then the microwave thinks the door is still open and the carousel table won't turn, and the oven will not heat up.
I replaced an interlock switch last Saturday. The switch was $7.00 and took me an hour.
Ask your local repair person to test the interlock and monitor switches first, then go from there.
Good luck,
Hank

Sounds like an electrolytic blew, but it could be any nuber i=of things. Usually when one element fails, others are damaged and are failing as well, such as the magnetron.
If it is an inexpensive table-top microwave, it would be less expensive to replace it with a new one.

Food is not heating, can u help me?


If the only problem is that the food does not heat up, but the rest of the oven works, like the light, turntable, display and keypad, then the problem is with the magnetron circuit. It the circuit that generates the microwaves that heat the food. It can be expensive to fix since the replacement magnetron can cost as much as a new oven, so it rarely worth fixing. The symptom of a shorted magnetron is a loud buzzing sound when you try to run the oven.

Food will not heat everything else is working


If it does not heat, with all other functions working, the problem lies with the magnetron circuit. The magnetron is the part that makes the microwaves to heat the food. Typically, the magnetron fails and shorts out. Symptoms when this occurs is a loud hum from the oven and does not heat the food. The replacement magnetron costs are close to the price of a new microwave oven, so it rarely pays to have it fixed.

Sharp 953 microwave isn't heating up food.


It may be a bad door switch or door switch mount. It would not be the middle switch, rather the bottom or possibly the top one.

Microwave won't heat food.


My Whirlpool microwave, over the stove, stopped working when my son used it to heat his food and a heavy sound came out, like something exploded in it. When I check it, there was nothing broke. Everything works fine except that it does not heat. I will appreciate any help
