Usually when this happens, it is because of the voltage regulator for heating unit, which basically works like a "radiation distribution unit", which is where the term " nuking your food " comes from. these things just "go out" at random and there are really only 2 options you have.

#1 spend close, if not more, than what you paid for the microwave, to have it repaired BY THE MANUFACTURER.

#2 go buy another microwave.

my advice? take option #2, because it is just easier.

Dometic microwave model dotr12cb runs but does not heat


The most likely cause is the magnetron or the inverter board, if the microwave was manufactured 7 years or less. It is cheaper in most cases to replace the microwave oven.

Oster microwave OM1101NOE wont heat carosel turns light is on time runs but not heat


There are three things to consider, the magnetron "heats food" high voltage diode "sometimes cracks" and the high voltage capacitor "sometimes shorts" one or more can cause the symptom of no heat. I recommend a professional to assess.

I have an old Goldstar microwave (MV1140T) that just stopped heating. The fan still works but the food won't heat up. What can I do?


The problem is caused by a bad magnetron, "common problem" or the high voltage capacitor and diode, all three work together to heat the food. The repair cost for parts and labor will be high enough to consider buying a new microwave oven.

MV1502W/B It just stopped heating. It turns on.


The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be bad or the circuitry to the magnetron may have burned out. Basically my advice is that if you have no electrical expertise, it isn't worth fixing. The magnetron if bad, costs almost as much as a new microwave. If you open it up (make sure it has been unplugged for a few hours and don't seen any obvious burnt parts (including a fuse and the diodes), then most likely the magnetron is done and a new microwave is the way to go.

Let me know how this works out for you.
