Question about Amana ACO1840A Microwave Oven
You have a failing
If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
If you would like to have us do this repair for you, we do that for $39.95 plus part costs nationwide.

The magnetron may have either failed or
is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.
