Did it make a loud pop like a firecracker?
Sounds like the High Voltage Diode shorted out and it probably is making a low or loud growling noise now..... ???

Goldstar MV1515W running but not heating


One of two things will be the problem. 1)almost certainly the magnatron. 2)the cap and HV diode need to be checked and possibly replaced.

Microwave made loud popping sound and now does not heat.


Hey,
Try this
Probably a high voltage diode popped because contaminated grease eventually built up and made a path for a high voltsge arc to occur.. To confirm,take the outer cover off the microwave and discharge the high voltage capacitor by shorting its terminals. Then pull the plug off the magnetron side and place it near the magnetron socket. Now turn the microwave on and push the connector on the magnetron with a chopstick or a long insulated screwdriver. If no arc when you do this this confirms a bad diode.



please rate my suggestion..

Microwave made a loud pop,won't heat,sounds like it's only on half power, makes a low intermittent hum


This is almost certainly a blown high voltage diode.
