In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even something in the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system mangnetron down, for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

    mine has the same problem. if you lift the handle up it will start working. which means the issue lies elsewhere. someone suggested a washer under the hinge to raise the handle

The lights, fan clock etc. all are working, but it won't heat.


The door interlock switch is probably failed or out of adjustment. Beyond that the magnetron may have failed. Does the turntable etc all and light run while TRYING to heat? If so the magnetron or possibly the relay that sends power to the transformer or the rectifier may have failed. Note that about 5000 volts is sent to the magnetron so use great caution when working on this.

Microwave turntable doesn't turn. Everything else


The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

But if you've recently had trouble with the cooktop lights, then the control board may be damaged.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microve turns on, but will not heat Model number is FMT148G1B2 Everything seems to work except there's no heat. Clock works, countdown timer, light, turntable, etc., just no heat.


Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.

The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.

There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.
