You should still have about a 5-year warranty on the magnetron, if that's the trouble.

If everything else works, it's almost certainly a high voltage component, most likely the magnetron or diode, but also possibly the transformer.

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)

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

I have an old Goldstar microwave (MV1140T) that just stopped heating. The fan still works but the food won't heat up. What can I do?


The problem is caused by a bad magnetron, "common problem" or the high voltage capacitor and diode, all three work together to heat the food. The repair cost for parts and labor will be high enough to consider buying a new microwave oven.

It doesnt matter how old a system was. components can be failed at any point in time. unplug the unit. carefully disassembly and visually check the diode near magnetron and capacitor, it might be broken.If seems good, check the thermostat continuity,if beeping. changage your magnetron. be careful capacitor store charges that deadly. discharge the capacitor first.
when you change mag. change the diode too.

Hi LMGreen! Sorry for the late response a bit busy at work.. Coming back to the problem..
Solder joints on power control board are cracked and/or burned. Inspect solder connections on power control board for deterioration. This usually occurs where the harness connector is mounted to the circuit board. Reinforce and re-solder as necessary. Also check all other solder joints.

The most common causes for this (in order) are a defective door switch, door switch mount, or a bad connection or relay on the control panel. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk
