Re: No heat from microwave oven

How old is your oven?? If more than 2 years, it may have a bad magnetron tube or other high voltage components. You will need to have it checked by a qualified technician to get an accurate repair estimate that includes everything it needs.

Food in microwave is burning on edge and cold in the center

you may find the old unit was lower watts so took longer & cooked/heated better all the way through. a way to fix this is lower temp settings or pause and stir the food to help heat it up more even.

Microwave light comes on and turntable revolves when food is put in, but it doesn't heat food up. Food remains cold, can you help? thanks Dee

9 times out of ten it is the magnatron that has gone bad, that is the device that creates the microwaves for heating the food. Check inside the cabinet for fuses and if none found or blown then it is the magnatron. These are available widespread but most cost about as much as a new oven, so do a google search on your make and model of microwave and search for a magnatron for that unit. This will bring up parts suppliers and their prices and you can decide if it is worth fixing or replacing

Hi my microwave is not heating food

There is a tube I believe, in microwaves that produce the waves that heat the food. A fan usually disperses the waves to make the heating more even, rather than cooking one spot and leaving the rest cold or frozen.

Replace it. Cheaper than the fix, unless it is only the fan. But you still have to take it in, and there will be a service charge on top of the parts replacement.

Microwave oven: GE Spacemaker 1400 not heating. Model number JVM1430AB001. Need guidance on troubleshooting and repair of unit. Thanks!

If the oven is making a loud buzzing noise when you try to warm food and the food remains cold, it usually means that the magnetron has failed. Not usually worth fixing since the parts alone can cause as much as a new oven.
