HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron)))

Sounds like an electrolytic blew, but it could be any nuber i=of things. Usually when one element fails, others are damaged and are failing as well, such as the magnetron.
If it is an inexpensive table-top microwave, it would be less expensive to replace it with a new one.

Whirlpool model number MH7140XFB no longer heats

you either need a new h.v. capacitor or h.v. diode in the magnetron circuitry if you cant hear it cycle when it runs as in a low pitched hummmm when its drawing current to operate the magnetron tube, each part runs about $30 to $45 each,normally its the h.v. capacitor though

My KCMS185JSS-5 microwave has no heat. It seems to be running, the light and turn table all work, but it won't heat water.

hi..Your micro hood is "shot".so it is not working properly.
The food may not be heating,but the electrical and the walls
of the unit might heat.This may cause sparking and melting
of the interior of the unit.
check it out..
thank u..
kindly rate my response..

Ge Microwave space saver over range working but

It is a good possibility that the stirrer has failed. In the top of cabinet is a round cover,there is a small round plug in the edge of it,pry plug out and put it in safe place,rotate the cover < twist locks > gently let it down and stirrer will be either setting on cover or still attached. If you notice any damage< it is a round aluminum disc that is flat > then you need a new one. If you don't see any damage put it back in < put in hole and turn until you feel it line up with shaft and push into place,< gently >.Make note of position and put cover back on < stirrer does not lock on shaft so you have to hold it up until you get cover under it in most cases. Run a short cycle and remove cover to see if it turned at all. If not the motor is bad < turns stirrer during operation>. This is the first time that question has been asked of me and it is the only thing that I can think of if it heats glass and not food.

I have an Emerson (2 weeks old). It heats well but there is a thumping noise when the table rotates and sometimes the table will operate with a jerking motion.

It sounds like the table is'nt positioned properly on the base it sits on, most are not attached and can be easily removed for cleaning purposes, try repositioning the table on the base.

Kenmore microwave 721.80803401 rotating table pops up and stops turning.

I would bet the arm ("ring assembly") is either worn or warped from heat? and is not meshing well with the motor shaft or glass tray.

That is part number 4351W1A003A and you can get it for only $6.30 (compared to over sixteen via Sears) from Tritronics.

The motor is part # 6549W1S018C and if it's the culprit, you can get that for $24.84 from Tritronics, compared to almost thirty-two from Sears.

You should look again and see how loose the arm is on the shaft and which might be worn or warped or out of perpendicular. I think that one of these is the problem.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
