Question about Microwave Ovens
We have an "over the range" Whirlpool Roper microwave. All of a sudden, the microwave stopped working, i.e., it does not heat up at all inside. All of the other features seem to be working....the timer, the interior lights, sound, etc. But, all food items are stone cold when you take them out of the oven. Do you have any idea what the problem may be?
Thanks for your advice!
everything else works fine but food is as cold as it was when you put it in.
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
If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
