It's most likely a blown magnetron thermostat, but you should also check the fuse and the oven cavity thermostat.

There should be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, & testing.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

Accessing the thermostats for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

You can download Kitchenaid / Whirlpool owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

Tip

Using stainless steel utensils in a microwave oven


Every one knows that one cannot use metal utensils/bowls in a microwave oven.
But did you know that this does not apply to a utensil/bowl made out of stainless steel?
Try it this way.
Put some water in a stainless steel container and place it in the microwave for 5 seconds.The water will heat up without any sparks being created.
One could actually heat up anything in this way without any danger of causing a fire.

unplug microwave.
Take ALL dishes out of the microwave and do a proper check of the inside the cooking area. If you are sure that's ok put the glass dish back in if it has one.

Test that the oven and grill are still functional.?

Do they heat up? If they do then get one of those microwaveable bowls or dishes and put some water into it. Place it back into the microwave and do the check again on microwave heating.

Does it bang or spark again?
If it does and the other heating is OK then the Magnatron to me sounds as it's on it's last legs.
That does not mean you have to scrap the microwave if it is the Magnatron. as a new one can be purchased and installed.

Here's my standard post on getting into the doors:

Normally you have to separate the door panels (as shown in the attached photo) and then you'll see the screws you need to remove.

Or you can watch a YouTube video (not a video I made) here that demonstrates how it's done.

Microwave makes a loud sound and then won't heat. About 3 years old.


It sounds like a failing magnetron. Sometimes they can be intermittent before they finally fail for good.

Chances are your oven has a 5-10 year warranty on the magnetron.

Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, and your detailed symptoms.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

We purchased this microwave 4 months ago and the food is not heating up and do not know what model it is but it has a dial setting and is a stainless steel model.


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.

I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer or dealer to get it fixed free.
