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)

I have an old Sanyo Microwave Model EM-FL90N which has worked great, everything works but it seems not to be heating stuff up. The manual is not of much help either. Any suggestions? Help?


Javaid,
You might want to consider replacing the microwave if it is more than 8-10 years old. Sounds like you have a magnatron that is going bad and that is what does the cooking, and to replace it could cost you almost as much as a newer microwave. Hope this helps!

see the informaton with carefully and use the common sense:
God bless you
When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem.

Sanyo microwave not heating. Light on at top rigt hand corner


Unfortunately when the microwave stops heating and everything else still works, this means your magnetron shorted out. The magnetron is the part that heats the food and also is the most expensive part. It is almost cheaper to buy a new microwave and taking into account the hassle of replacing the magnetron, I recommend just getting a new microwave. Let me know if you need anything else.

OK above is a service manual, this should get you into the "ball park" I have given you also a DIY repair of microwaves.
Usually, the magnetron, or High Power Diode, is what fails. Anyway perform the troubleshooting steps, and you should be able to sort it out.
BE CAREFUL. Microwaves are LETHAL.
