My Sunbeam Microwave SGB8901 lights up and seems to be working, but it doesn't heat anything. Is this fixable?


Only 2 years old? Hopefully you still have owner's manual, troubleshooting section should help you look for the problem. Hopefully, there is a circuit breaker, or perhaps a fuse. I hope it was not used with a metal object accidentally. No help? Check with Sunbeam Customer service, be nice, they usually are helpful.

When I press the start the button the turn table inside microwave is not turning and there is not heat on the food. But the light is on and the clock is working. What do you think is the problem? and what...


The turn table motor of your microwave is defective already and also the magnetron - the source of generated heat of the microwave is also defective. But before assuming that magnetron is dead, check the high voltage fuse it may be blown and replace the fuse (if it is blown) it with similar rating. I hope I help you with your microwave problem.

10 yr old hotpoint Microwave model #RVM1325BW will not heat, vent,clock, touch pads all working.Hust no heat. If this needs to be replaced what model # should I get for the same dimensions?


I would say that your heating element has gone out. I don't know exctly what model you have, but I would guess it to be about 1.5 Cubic Ft., and a replacement would probably run somewhere around $150 to $200. There are many brands, but if I had no cost to consider, I'd probably go with a GE or Kenmore. Hope this helps.

My microwave oven isn't heating my food. Everything else works, the fan, the lights and the keypad. The microwave turns and sounds like everything is working but the food won't get hot. It is only 1 yr...


If it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty and you should contact the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

Some have longer warranties, and that will be covered in your owner's manual.

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

Microwave doesn't heat anything


This more than likely is the magnatron,< heats food >, making noise and not working. it isn,t really easy fix and can be done if you get part and experienced person to walk you through it. Most GE magnatrons have at least 5 yr warranty and if it isn't that old call them first.

Microwave panasonic model nn 6358 about 10 years old


In most cases, you press Clock, enter the numbers for the time, then press Clock again, or possibly press Start.

Sometimes you have to press Clock, Clear numbers, then Clock or Start.

Or Clear, Clock, numbers, then Clock or Start.

In some older models, they had a very small mechanical clock button located at the top right corner of the controller near the display window. If yours has that, press it, then the numbers, then that button again or Start.

If this doesn't do it for you, could you post a clear photo of your control panel?

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

GE PRofile Spacemaker XL Microwave Oven Model# JVM1460 950 watts


Sounds like the problem is in the high voltage. Most common would be magnatron, capacitor and diode. For safety reasons this should be checked by a professional. Look in your owners manual because some high voltage parts have a longer warranty than 1 yr.
