SOURCE: LG microwave

High voltage parts are suspect. Need to put a voltmeter on the input (primary) side to the high-voltage transformer (big heavy iron thing in there) Should be getting 120Vac when it goes to cook cycle. Don't touch the other (high voltage) side of this transformer. If the power is there, you are looking at replacing either the magnatron or the high-voltage capacitor and diode. Its affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"
Hope ya fix it!

SOURCE: LG Microwave does not heat food

est the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.

Thediode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must bealloweddischarge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenifpower is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting theirtwocontacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

SOURCE: microwave runs but does not heat or cook food


If a Goldstar, LG or Zenith MV1610 or MV1608 is running but not seeming to heat a load placed in center of turntable, its probably because the "stirrer" intended to spread microwaves generated by the magnetron around the cook chamber is stuck so that most all the heating is directed toward the back and top rather than the center of the cook chamber. This usually occurs after cooking for longer than a minute with no load in the cook chamber - as when a model w/o a timer (such as a MV1608) is intentionally operated in cook mode to serve as a kitchen timer, or when a model with a timer function (such a MV1610) is accidentally operated for longer than a minute w/o any load. Before assuming the magnetron (usually warranted for 5, 8 or even 10 years) or other high voltage component such as diode or capacitor needs to be replaced, try “cooking” a 16 oz pyrex cup of water at full power on the outer edge of the turntable for 2-3 minutes - which usually reactivates the "stirrer" and restores normal cooking function.

SOURCE: My Microwave is working but

It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.

YOUR SAFETY IS PARAMOUNT

This is a job for a professional but if you are safety clued up, here's instruction.
Make sure the !!!!any capacitors are discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 or moving coil meter on high resistance range for short circuit, (DVM's won't show the fault!), the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

My daughter just moved into a townhouse and the microwave plate warms, however the plate doesn't rotate. Is there any easy way of fixing this issue


The rotating table in a microwave shouldn't be getting warm unless something is sitting on it and transferring heat to it. The chamber should not be left empty when the microwave is running. The motor that drives the table is of very low mechanical power but should be able to handle about any load it must. I suggest you remove the glass table, the ring on which it rides, put a cup of water in the chamber and turn it on. Look at the drive spindle that engages with the table when installed. If it isn't rotating 9should be easy to see) then the motor is defective which is highly unusual to see one fail. If the spindle is clearly not moving, then I recommend replacing the whole unit since while the part isn't expensive, the labor cost would likely make the repair uneconomical.

Whirlpool model number MH7140XFB no longer heats


you either need a new h.v. capacitor or h.v. diode in the magnetron circuitry if you cant hear it cycle when it runs as in a low pitched hummmm when its drawing current to operate the magnetron tube, each part runs about $30 to $45 each,normally its the h.v. capacitor though

Gold Star 1515W microwave not heating up and when


The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be bad or the circuitry to the magnetron may have burned out. Basically my advice is that if you have no electrical expertise, it isn't worth fixing. The magnetron if bad, costs almost as much as a new microwave. If you open it up (make sure it has been unplugged for a few hours and don't seen any obvious burnt parts, then most likely the magnetron is done and a new microwave is the way to go.

Let me know how this works out for you.

The turn table rotates but it does not heat anything, I checked the door switches and they all appear OK


Microwaves can be very dangerous to service if you're unfamiliar with proper service techniques. I would suggest leaving this one to a pro. Especially if it's a newer over-the-range unit, as many of these must be removed and disassembled to find and repair the problem.

Turns On by itself


Replace it. I work in sales for Whirlpool. It sounds like the door switch is either sticking or shorted. Also because your turntable continues to run it sounds like a short. Microwaves are a unit we only recommend an authorized technician to work on due to the microwaves it uses.

The cost of a new one is usually easily half or more the cost of repairing it.

Average service call just to give you an estimate is 80-90$

Kenmore microwave 721.80803401 rotating table pops up and stops turning.


I would bet the arm ("ring assembly") is either worn or warped from heat? and is not meshing well with the motor shaft or glass tray.

That is part number 4351W1A003A and you can get it for only $6.30 (compared to over sixteen via Sears) from Tritronics.

The motor is part # 6549W1S018C and if it's the culprit, you can get that for $24.84 from Tritronics, compared to almost thirty-two from Sears.

You should look again and see how loose the arm is on the shaft and which might be worn or warped or out of perpendicular. I think that one of these is the problem.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

If we close the mircowave door the units start to run by itself. - it will not heat, but the light comes on and the turntable rotates it will not stop until we turn the power off - when power is turned...


i think you have a welded controller, either a digital one or a mechanical one. microwave won't run unless you switch it to run. the door switches are safety switches to turn off the microwave once you open the door. if you have a digital controller, you could have a welded relay, if you have a mechanical timer, it could be a welded contact at the timer. another thing is that it should heat what ever you are heating. if it is not heating, check if it has a fuse and if it is busted. some fuse are installed to protect only the magnetron that is why the light and turn table are still running. if there is no fuse to the magnetron, then check the diode from the capacitor to the ground. it could be open. if not then you can have a bad magnetron. i hope i was able to help.
