If it is not cooking anything and seems to be working fine you have a broken transformer, it is the device that turns electric into microwaves

My 10 year old GE Spacemaker XL1400 microwave has stopped heating the microwave's contents.


probably a magnatron failure
take it to an appliance repair shop for a proper diagnosis and get a quote as repairs can be more expensive than new unit

GE Microwave model#JVM1440BH01 works fine except it just stopped heating anything


It is a very good chance the magnetron has gone out especially if it is making a low pitched hum. There could be a door switch problem but more than likely it is the magnetron.

Frigidaire FMV156DC 950 Microwave sometimes stops heating


This sounds like a common primary interlock switch. Need to check and or replace both door switches. DISCHARGE high voltage components first with no power applied prior to touching anything in the unit. Failure to discharge High Voltage Components can result in death

I have a Whirlpool GH5176XPS microwave and everything seems to work fine except that it does not heat anything. I have checked all the fuses and they are fine. Any suggestions?


The problem is more than likely a bad magnetron, "heats food" the other two considerations are the high voltage capacitor and diode.

I have a 1993 GE spacemaker microwave/range hood combo. Everything works except that for most of the day it did not heat the food. The turntable still worked and the oven still appeared to be running. Then...


In short yes it can happen again.

Intermittent operation can be caused by a door interlock micro switch, a weak capacitor, an intermittent wiring connection from heat or poor connection, a marginally performing diode or a sticking Magnetron. Except for the Magnetron all other repairs would be worth the expense.

Repair costs and parts for most everything else will be between $65 and $100.00 depending on the part(s) replaced. Replacing the Magnetron would cost more than 50 % of the total unit replacement cost.

Everything works except the cooking part/no heating/turntable not turning, help!


you may have gotten a power surge and that can cause some funny things to happen, 1st is there power to the oven, 2nd if so there may be an internal fuse protector built in to the oven, check with the manual for anything of that sort listed. if not you may have to take it in and have it repaired by a pro. there is a lot of voltage in these ovens and unless you know what you are doing a person could get hurt

The Microwave stopped heating


Probably magnetron failure- needs to go back to the dealers, this is a major job, may be cheaper to replace the oven
