Question about Electrolux ICON Built-In Microwave Oven
Microwave has power, internal light goes on, when you start it, timer counts down and interior light goes on, but oven makes no sound, turntable doesn't move and food doesn't heat.
I doubt you have a Hi voltage problem or fuse problem. My guess if the microwave is not running is that one of the door interlock switches is bad or out of adjustment. Make sure one of the door hooks didn't break off also.

A microwave oven uses a device called a magnetron. Driven by a Gunn Diode this device can generate insane amounts of Microwave radiation. They also use VHT (Very high voltage) in the order of thousands of volts to energise the circuitry. In short they can be lethal, that is... unless you enjoy being cooked by being steam broiled from the inside out of course?
So you can understand my trepidation when you have to ask how to fix it on an support forum. If you are happy with ripping a $30 piece of equipment to bits to repair it and potentially not having any more children then it sounds like the power supply or rectification unit is failed. If you're luck there will be an internal fuse which has got tired and popped, if not its probably a bin job as the parts are not easy to get and when you can get them they are almost more expensive that buying a whole new unit.
