Well the fuse has very little to do with the process of heating the food. It merely completes a circuit between the wall and the power supplky of the unit.

Your problem may be that the Magnatron is dead ( expensive repair) or that the fail safe has engaged, whereupon the unit has overheated because of poor airflow and has invoked the isolator switch.

If this is so it will start when it has cooled ( 2-3hrs) Make sure thyere is a good airflow around the cabinet. Those built intpo cupboard hutches often fail from overheating.

M/waves can be picked up cheaply from pawn shops now rather than repairing. People trade up and sell ofd their perfectly good oloder modles. You can pick up a good one with 30n day warranty ( prechecked) FOR about $100.00. Whcih is a lot less than a new Magnatron.

My LG-MS-2022G is coming on but will not warm the food, what should I do?


It's my understanding that aluminum foil can reflect the RF energy back into the magnetron and causing it to overload and fail. If the oven turns on but does not heat the food, you can just about bet the magnetron is shot.

Microwave Won't Heat


Check the door safety interlock switches. Be careful of the capacitor, potentially dangerous.

If the switches dont make a connection, the magnetron will not energize ... no heat

Do not understand the use of the sensor


Dear ggold

I think you refer to the steam sensor. I,ll explain how it works with one of its uses. Say you want to reheat a plate of food. You can do this two ways. You can guess how much time it will take to warm the food, and maybe not heat it enough or overcook it which can ruin some foods. Or you can just press the "reheat" button. The oven will come on at full power and continue to operate until steam begins to rise from the plate. The oven then switches to a "countdown" mode until it determines the food is hot. Saves time and guesswork. Most modern ovens work like this. Since you dont give the make and model of your oven, this is the best I can do.

MICROWAVE NOT HEATING


I have the same problem. Everything seems to work except it doesn't heat up food.
I remember last time when it was working. I pressed the start botton before I closed the door. So it didn't start automatically, and I pushed start and it worked(it still heat up the food), but it doesn't work now. Help Please!!!
I have a Whirlpool Gold GH5184XPQ.

Thanks in advance

Won't warm food


Typically, no heating of food, indicates a bad Magnetron (tube) or associated components. Yes, it can be repaired. Magnetrons are not hard to replace and can be ordered online through MCM electronics. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good Luck,
