Question about Microwave Ovens
Posted by Anonymous on
Sounds as if it is not ventilating the heat properly, which is causing a safety mechanism to be triggered to shut down the microwave in order to save the motor.
The vent could be blocked, the fan/fanswitch went out, or the heat sync is no longer properly transferring heat. Depending on the age the solution would to call a repair man or replace the microwave. And never use microwave without anything inside of it.

It sounds just like the magnetron is bad, overheating and opening the thermostat. This is how it would work if that were the case.
One other thing is to be sure that the cooling fan is running and that you feel air flow.
You should check the air filter and grille, as well as the outside vent for any blockage.
