Question about Microwave Ovens
Microwave works great for a few minutes (~3) then the sound changes noticeably going much quieter and the food gets no warmer. The carousel continues to turn. All keypad functions work normally. I let the microwave sit for a while - maybe a half hour- and then it will work again. I've replaced the magnetron and the symptoms are unchanged. Any suggestions what to look at next and how best to test?
Next test... Unplug it for 60 seconds with door open (to drain power) to see if problem is with internal compute.

SOURCE: 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

IT COULD BE A NUMBER OF THINGS RANGING FROM DIODES TO CAPACITORS TO YOUR MAGNATRON OR THERMOSTAST OR TRANSFORMERS. IT'S DIFFICULT TO DIAGNOSE WITHOUT SEEING THIS MICROWAVE. YOU MAY BE BETTER OFF GETTING YOURSELF A DIFFERENT ONE.
