Please check your door safety interlock switch, the #1 reason microwave ovesn do not heat. Find these tiny switches inside opposite the hinge.

When the contacts burn, the oven no longer can tell if the door is closed.

    Turntable and lights all work as they should, but not warming at all. If it is the interlock switch that is faulty, how can I tell whether it is a problem with interlock switch?

If everything seems to work, except cooking the food it is probably the magnetron which sells for $100-$150 for the part alone.

Lg 700 w microwave everything is working as normal but the food is not heating up


There three parts that will cause this, the first is the magnetron "heats food" the most expensive part, followed by the high voltage capacitor and diode, they work in conjunction to generate the high voltage to cook the food.

Microwave runs but food does not heat


If everything appears to work as normal but does not heat, then the magnetron will be faulty. This is the device which cooks the food, however this can be an expensive part to replace & may not be economical to fix.
