I have posted this answer many times here at Fixya but will do it again for you. You may want to review some of those comments for additional details.

Check the door switches .

Do you open the door when the oven is running? If you do, the contacts in the little switch arc and burn. As they burn, eventually, they will not close. The circuit is then not complete and the oven thinks the door is open. When this happens, the oven will not turn on the magnatron. When this happens, no heat.

Do not touch the silver can in the back, oven plugged in or not. It potentially retains lethal levels of electricity. Definitely unplug before you remove the cover. Screws on the back and probably on the sides at the bottom. Make sure you reinstrall the cover properly and use all the screws.

I hope you find this resonse will help you solve your problem

May Spacemaker XL1800 stop heating food. Was working fine. Then just stop


Is this an over the stove type unit? I have had a few problems with my over the range spacesaver. I think the heat from cooking gets up into the microwave and damages it. The steam from me boiling things on the stove had mine quit heating and I purchased a new one. The parts to replace the faulty ones can be quite expensive over $150.00, so its better to purchase a new microwave.

A simple test is to place a piece of bread in the microwave ( it heats up very fast) and then if your microwave was actually ON and generating RF, the bread would get hot very fast.. If it remains cool then only the fan is on. It appears that you may have a faulty door switch thou because once you open the door, your microwave should be off..

Are you sure the VENT is not on? That blower will operate regardless of the door open or closed so you must switch it OFF.

Sparking ? Power Surge ?


I had the same problem. I replaced the wave guide/cover and everything was fine. It is a piece of cardboard inside the microwave that covers the magnetron. Mine was saturated with grease, and was damaged by the fire. If yours is still intact and not that greasy, You can carefully remove it. Clean both it and the area inside the cavity with an alcohol based cleaner. If there is so much as a pin hole in the cover it will need to be replaced. When grease somehow gets behind the cover an arc is formed which causes the problem.
