Question about Amana AMV1162 Microwave Oven
Oven wil not heat food.
I have shut power off,
Still not working.
Hi, Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

were the problem of your oven it from the heater what will call element in the technical field
what you are to do to fix up your oven back to life is to unscrew your oven and then trace the wire down to the element you will see the wire that was disconnect from the element fix up to the element and put on your oven back to light
if after this the problem remain then you will have to change the element it self meaning that it bad
