Microwave oven mmv4205bab turns and runs but doesn't heat the food


There are a few possibilities, the magnetron is defective, or the high voltage capacitor or diode/or inverter board if microwave is under 7 years.

Food is not heating, can u help me?


If the only problem is that the food does not heat up, but the rest of the oven works, like the light, turntable, display and keypad, then the problem is with the magnetron circuit. It the circuit that generates the microwaves that heat the food. It can be expensive to fix since the replacement magnetron can cost as much as a new oven, so it rarely worth fixing. The symptom of a shorted magnetron is a loud buzzing sound when you try to run the oven.

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

Microwave will not heat


If everything else works, like display, light, turntable, but does not heat, it probally the magentron circuit that failed. It the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. When it fails, it makes a loud buzzing sound. If this is the case, it not worth fixing since the replacement magnetron cost as much as a new oven. Sorry.

When there is no heat, but everything else seems to work, it means the magnetron circuit has failed. The magetron is the part the generates the microwaves that heat the food. When it fails, it makes a loud buzzing sound. The replacement part can cost as much as a new oven, so it not worth fixing. Get yourself a new oven.

My GE XL 1800 does everything except heat


This is not something that you can fix yourself. Most likely, the magnetron needs replaced, and this must be done by a service department. So, if the microwave is relatively new and expensive, take it in for service. If it's an old one or relatively cheap model, you would be better off replacing it because the cost of the repair would likely be more than the unit is worth. Hope that this helps.
