The usual answer here is that the magnetron has failed and is trying to blow the fuse. This seems to be a common failure with Asian manufactured magnetrons. The cost of a typical repair may induce you to purchase a new machine. Hope this helps!

My Frigidaire microwave is less than a year old. It is making a loud noise while running. So it runs loudly but does not heat up food. Is there a simple fix or did I get a dud?


The symptoms of loud noise and no heat indicate a short in the magnetron or high voltage diode. Need to take it to a qualified repair, to figure out what the problem. The magnetron replacement can cost as much as a new oven. See what the warranty covers, maybe you might luck out.

My Frigidaire microwave model# PLMVZ169GCC does not heat food. It runs and makes a loud noise, the plate turns but does not heat up. It is only 2 yesrs old. Thank you for your help.


Intermittent load noise (usual intermittent pulse noise is exaggerated) and the food is not heating though everything else seems to opperate normally: The Triac or Diode is capute.

You need to replace this part (@$30), but first need to discharge the capacitor, which is dangerous. I am going to give it a "shot", and not a "shock", all the punn intended. I will use an long insulated screw driver to touch both of the 2/3 tines of the adjacent capacitor, which will give a load "POP!" 2-3x to insure the stored energy is diffused.
Then, hopefully, simply replace the longe wire diode.
TaDa!

Plmv169dcc WILL NOT HEAT. dOESN'T MAKE NOISE. ALL ELSE WORKS


the unit inside the microwave that heats food, called the "magnetron" has gone bad or the circuits that power the magnetron have failed. if its under warranty still, send it back to the manufacturer. if not you can call some repair shops and see how much it would be to service it, but its most likely going to be cheaper to purchace a new microwave since they are relatively cheap these days

Danby microwave does not heat food and makes loud constant noise


IF the noise is a sound coming from the oven area, its the megatron tube. Typically, replacing the megatron tube is more expensive than replacing wiht a new unit and a new warranty.

My Frigidaire over the stove microwave not heating food


Hi,It is most likely the magnetron and diode that has to be replaced. This job should be done by a tech, High voltage. Magnetron's normally have a five year warranty, check your owners manual.

I was boiling water on the electric range beneath my FRIGIDAIRE FMV157GC 1.5 Cu. Ft. Microwave Oven when there was a loud snapping/popping noise occured. I immediately shut off the microwave and thought...


Hi,

I would say the transformer for the power supply has probably shorted, or another major component in the power supply has shorted - This may be repairable if easily spotted, but most likely will not be cost efective.

Microwave was working now making funny noise and not heating food and this is a brand new microwave and because i live in the virgin islands they are telling me the warranty cant be covered but the virgin...


I am having the exact same problem. There was a large POP and now it makes a weird noise and doesn't heat. Everything else appears to work though. I think it may be the HV Capacitor. Before I tear this thing off the wall and check the Capacitor does this sound like it may be the problem?
