It's probably the Magnetron. They usually go out.
Most older ovens have a fuse that goes out with it and shuts the unit down. A repair shop should be able to replace the Magnetron at a reasonable cost.

Suggest you pull the plug out, remove outer cover and place a cup of water into the micro. Set power to minimum then switch on and take note if the fan works or not. If not, switch off immediately and have it replaced(magnatron will burn out if left to run without fan.)

It doesn't heat anymore. About 5 years old only.


Check the door safety switch. When they go bad, they oven doesn't know if the door is closed or not. Find them inside on the side opposite the hinge. They go bad because we (read "you and me" open the door with the oven running and that cooks the contacts on these little switches.

Whirlpool MH1150XMQ 1000 Watts Microwave--NO HEAT


About 95% of the time it is the magnatron. If the microwave is under 5 years old that part is often covered under warranty. I would check your manual. If not the p/n is 8206335 and it's about $80 and fairly easy to install. I just looked and the magnatron is covered.

Labor to replace it would be about $125
