The problem is that the magnetron is not working. Magnetron is the devices that sends the heat wave to the food.

If you're familiar with the components, you may open the microwave oven and check it. There's a possibility that some capacitors, resistors around the magnetron have gone bad. That is why the magnetron is not working.

But if everything looks okay, then you may want to check the magnetron itself. Unfortunately, I'm not sure about the tools that you need to check it.

You may need an assistance from a pro for this kind of problem.

Thank you and good luck!

Oster microwave OM1101NOE wont heat carosel turns light is on time runs but not heat


There are three things to consider, the magnetron "heats food" high voltage diode "sometimes cracks" and the high voltage capacitor "sometimes shorts" one or more can cause the symptom of no heat. I recommend a professional to assess.

It may be your heating element. You will need to see if the element is getting power. Check for damage to the element, since the motor is running and the fan

No heat


If the fan, lites, all work and appears to be running normal but just no heat, chances are its the magnetron that has failed. Sometimes magnetron will make a deeper noise if it has failed

Microwave will run but will not heat?


**CAUTION**
HIGH VOLTAGE IS PRESENT IN CAPACITORS. THIS COULD SERIOUSLY INJURE YOU. DO NOT ATTEMPT IF YOU ARE INEXPERIENCED! IT IS CHEAPER TO BUY A NEW MICROWAVE THAN PAY FOR AN EMERGENCY ROOM VISIT.

The magnetron probably needs to be replaced. You can test it with these instructions.
