Take it to a repair shop for a proper diagnosis but generally anything other than a fuse , it will be cheaper to get a new unit

I need a magnetron for a Brother MF3200 microwave oven


How did you get on with your search for a new Magnetron ??
I have one of these great little cookers, but the buttons on the control panel are "sticking" or only intermittently operating - have to press pause many times to get the machine to shut down. I might need a new control panel or at best the one fitted needs a good internal clean - have you stripped your mmachine down ??

Our microwave MV-1310 has stopped heating food? How much would it cost to fix it?


The cost depends only after identifying the fault and if this is only a fuse you have just got to replace. So remove power and top cover, check for the fuse near the main power line. If this is OK , check the controller unit and if the microwave works without heating, it can be a faulty waveguide- or a magnetron.
The wave guide is not expensive but the magnetron is the critical and costly part and where you need an estimation.

My microwave appears to be running, but nothing is heating up


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.

GOLDSTAR MV-1310/STOPPED HEATING


Unfortunately, there is no way to tell which part the microwave needs without opening it up for examination. There are a few parts that, if defective, would prevent the oven from heating.

  • a high voltage transformer which passes energy to the magnetron
  • a magnetron which converts high-voltage electric energy to microwave radiation
  • a magnetron control circuit (usually with a microcontroller)
This is NOT a repair that you would want to attempt yourself. The labor for the repair would cost a minimum of $50 and shouldn't exceed $100. You'll also have to pay for the necessary part if it's still available from the manufacture or their parts distributor.

Microwave has no power


I'd say the thermostat and/or fuse are blown. I just hope the magnetron survived.

I don't have that exact model's service manual but ones before and after only used one thermostat, similar to the drawing below.

They also have a fuse, usually located in an inline fuse holder connected to the power cord inside.

Heat up


If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

In this case, the magnetron is the most likely suspect, but other suspects would be :

- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

Goldstar NV1502 No Heat


You should still have about a 5-year warranty on the magnetron, if that's the trouble.

If everything else works, it's almost certainly a high voltage component, most likely the magnetron or diode, but also possibly the transformer.

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)
