No heat from my microwave


It's a major problem. The component that produces the microwaves has ceased to function. You may have a warranty fix available.

How to set power settings


Set the time as you normally would to cook your food: i.e. 60 seconds. Hit the power button; 100 will pop up on the screen, as in 100 % of power, enter 50 for 50% power, 70 for 70% etc. Food will cook more evenly this way, not burnt to a crisp on the outside, cold in the center.

Food not getting heated


There are three common issues, magnetron "heats food" cracked high voltage diode, or a shorted high voltage capacitor. In order to find out you will need a professional to assess, it will be probably cheaper to replace the microwave oven.

The microwave runs and sounds normal, but it does not heat up the food. (We did run it at 100% power a few times, with no heat up) Do you have any suggestions to what the problem could be? We purchased...


Sorry to read about your problem.
It seems your have a general failure in the power control or switch failure on the unit. you said your unit has power, and things lite. Then it is more likely you have a control/switch problem,

Microwaves must be serviced by technicians due to the inherent dangers involved in repairing these appliances. Internal capacitors can retain a lethal electrical charge even though the unit is completely unplugged. A microwave radiation leakage test must be performed on the unit following any internal component repair

Oven won't heat food


Bad Magnetron. Unfortunately, and especially on high power microwaves, magnetrons do die. They'll probably run you between 100 and 300 dollars to replace. If you believe that your microwave is within warranty(not likely), contact the manufacturer for repairs. Otherwise, it may just be cheaper to purchase a new microwave.

Sorry that this answer doesn't produce a happy result, but it's an unfortunate fault of microwaves as a whole.

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

The microwave will light up, the buttons work, but no heat to cook food


Your magnitron tube is out (it makes the micro waves) If you are handy you can switch it out for around 100-150, go to marcone.co to get the new mag tube

Magic Chef MCO 153 UQ heats but doesnt' turn


You can still use it, but must be aware that this is a relatively high power microwave, so food will burn if it isn't turned.
