Inside the machine is a fuse that is expressly for the magnetron tube. You may or may not have special screws that hold the cover on, but usually they are the tamper - proof kind, you Can buy the tool that removes them. The fuse will be a small (1/4"x1 1/4") AGC type and will be white ceramic with a metal cap at each end, this too, you can buy. After replacing the fuse, make sure that you put the cover back on before testing the ' nuke '. The special tool ( if you have to buy one) and the fuse will cost far less to purchase than a new unit. If the unit still doesn't heat, then the problem will most definitely be in the mag circuit. To replace the entire unit would be my best advice, to repair it costs more than just money, you also have to hassle with the repair people and lose out on time not having your 'nuke'.

Turntable does not spin, no heat


HV fuse has failed. Possibly caused by door switches or Diode Pack failure. Do not attempt a repair unless you are competent to do so. Extremely hazardous voltages inside!

Light and turntable work, but it won't heat


There is a fuse in this microwave.The fuse is difficult to get to.
But i do not think it is this fuse.You have lights and the carousel
spins.This sounds like the thermostat or the magnetron tube that
creates the heat.

Samsung microwave oven turntable doesn't turn now. Is it ok to still use to heat/cook food ? What is the problem with it ?


Yes it just will not cook or defrost very evenly. It is not dangerous however.

Probably the motor or gears that make the turntable go are worn or burnt out.

Dacor dcm24s.light, fan, and control panel work but turntable and heat do not


Most likely the bottom door switch. Dacor units are built by Sharp and that switch is a very common problem. You'd either need to check the switch with an ohm meter or remove the cover of the switch to see if it's burned inside.

This is not safe. If the fan is not running, the magnetron will quickly overheat and be destroyed. We answered this in more depth in the other place you asked it.
