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)))

My microwave doesnt work


If you hear an unusual buzzing noise, the magnetron (the component that actually generates the microwaves) or other electronic module may be broken. This is not easily fixed; contact a service technician.

MY MICROWAVE DOESNT HEAT UP FOOD JUST COOKS


Hi.

The wave emitting part inside the microwave oven is called the magnetron. The waves emitted by the magnetron generate heat in food. When the microwave is running, turntable turns and light comes on but there is no heat it means that either the magnetron is faulty or the magnetron is not getting power. When the magnetron is not getting power parts such as the high voltage diode or capacitor must be tested or replaced. Testing and repair must be carried by a technician. Here some general troubleshooting: http://www.fixya.com/support/r2096491-microwave_works_normally_but_not_heat

It has power but is not heating anything


In order for a microwave oven to cook foods, its "engine" - the magnetron - must also be functioning. If the keypads, turntable, lights and all other functions are working but the food is not cooking, the magnetron has failed. Some local repair shops can provide a reasonable cost to replace, and it comes down to how old the oven is and is it worth repair or replacment.

Sharp R 530BS-sensor cook doesn't work. It appears to work but


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

JVM1190 wont cook


You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.
