Sounds like the fuse has blown. There are some high voltage circuits that exists inside your microwave and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, and you are not familar with high voltage components.

My magic chef microwave died. I replaced fuse, and electrical works but won't cook. Why?


Most likely if the fuse blew the part that creates the microwave energy is defective, it is called the "Magnetron" Just replace the oven is my suggestion.

Might be a fuse inside, or the unit may have died. Contact the manufacturer and keep the unit unplugged.

My sca2000bbb the convection works fine and the microwave does everything but heat up the food thanks for any help


If the microwave side is not cooking, it may be the magnetron has died, if so, it may be expensive to repair and you may have to consider another purchase.

Tappan TMV151FS over range microwave starts to work and then dies


Never run the microwave without a load (something to heat)!!! That kills the microwave generating parts.

Sounds like a 'thermal' protect switch is activating after running. Make sure that (if the unit is mounted in a cabinet) that there is sufficient space around the unit for proper air flow and that nothing is blocking the vents. Try setting it on a counter top and heat something. If it works properly and doesn't shut off, the venting space is the problem. You may have to have the cabinet that it sits in redesigned for more clearance.

Microwave won't heat, already tried replacing fuse. Timer, fan, clock work.


In all probability, the magnetron has died. The magnetron is the part that creates the microwaves that cook your food. Magnetrons are usually covered under a 5- or 10-year warranty and replacing them yourself can be pretty dangerous. I'd suggest you call a technician.

R-308KW unit emits a high pitched whining sound when started on cook mode. Does not seem to cook.


sounds as if the magnetron is dying,the only other thing it could be is the large main power transformer,but they usually have a low growl when mag is drawing current,also it could be a loose mechanical joint setting up a mechanical harmonic,but i'll bet its the mag...good luck

My panasonic genius microwave is about 4 years old and it just died is there any way of fixing it


my microwave started giving me notices to check the manual and would stop cooking the food. I turned the machine off, unplugged and looked at the back panel. Was I surprised to find the air flow vents completely covered in black dust. After wiping it up with a cloth and then a small toothbrush to completely clean out the air holes, the microwave works fine. What a simple solution to something I was beginning to think would be a major repair job. Surprise---simple is best!!

It just died


Check the AC line fuse. This will require you to remove cover.
