Question about Microwave Ovens
I would say it's most likely a bad door switch or switch mount or a bad connection on the magnetron or a bad magnetron.
But 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 conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part
