Possibly the capacitor has went bad. Be careful not to touch the ends of it when removing as it stores a large amount of electricity in it used to start the magnetron (microwave thingy). Other possibility is the magnetron itself. Capacitor is about 15-20 bucks. Magnetron is expensive.

MICROWAVE NOT HEATING


Most likely you have a magnetron problem. Easy to replace (DYI) but make sure the high voltage capacitor is fully discharged first against the case.

Turns on but not heating food sounds a bit louder


Hi, this is common in most microwaves. this abnormal noise is coming from a faulty Magnetron. this device is responsible for the heating process and, it is damaged and not heating at all at this point.Simply replace the Magnetron and, this unit will start to heat once more.
