It is possible that the magnetron is defective but before we confirm on it we chall check if any other associated components are faulty.
1.Try to see if the relay clicks when the table and fan engages to supply power to the magnetron.if so
2.Check to see if the main capacitor is faulty , this is a high voltage type and can be shorted or lower in value.
3.Check if the fuse in intact to the magnetron- high value.
4. The magnetron can be defective and might need a change.
Please check on the above tips and I hope it helps to identify your fault.
Please take care as you are dealing with high voltage/ microwave if the magnetron works.

Turbochef Tornado doesn't always heat food internally


you could have a problem with the microwave circuit. That would really be the only thing preventing the food from heating internally. I would call turbochef and call for warrenty service again. Is the bread comming out nice and toasty. If the blower for the convection circuit is weak or sticking this also cause the same effect of not properly cooked food.

So check microwave circuit and also check the blower.

Hope this helps if you need more in depth advice feel free to ask

Goldstar ma-1012W microwave oven doesn't heat food


Sounds like a bad magnetron (the device that produces the microwaves) - if the microwave is over 6-8 years old, it's usually not worth fixing.
