Microwave wont heat up food


If your microwave runs, but doesn'theat your food, verify that you have selected a cooking setting. You mayaccidentally set the timer. Test the magnetron by placing 1 cup of water in themicrowave and heating the water for three minutes. If the water doesn't heat,your magnetron is dead.

MY MICROWAVE IS NOT HEATING


If the microwave is turned on and you can hear the fan working when you set the time you should make sure of those things:1. You have selected the proper programme. Some microwaves have a control desiged to use the programs on the buttons. if you want to you the buttons to set time you should select "microwave" or a similar button and then press the power level like "1", "2" or "80", "100" (being percentage) and then press the buttons for timing.2. If you have used it for a while and it suddenly stopped heating the food, than it could be that your magnetron (a spare part) has burned out. Have a specialist replace it, or just get a new microwave, the price difference won't be that great for standard issue microwaves.

Not heating


Hello


Power Supply

Check whether there is a proper power supply. Look to see whether the cord is connected to a grounded 3-prong outlet and the cord is fully plugged in. If the electrical system is built-in and no power cord is visible, replace or reset the household fuse or circuit breaker.

Microwave Functions

Some basic microwave operational steps may affect whether the microwave is heating. Open and close the microwave door, as the unit will not function with the door open, and push "Stop/Clear" to cancel any previous settings, such as the timer, which do not heat the microwave oven.

Setting the Microwave

Once the power to the microwave has been reset, or verified as working, and the microwave is ready to run, select a new cook cycle and press "Start" to see if the microwave begins to run and cook food as expected. Allow the food to cook for the alloted time and then open the microwave door and check to see if the food has cooked or heated. Choose a longer cooking time and restart the microwave if food is heating but is cooking slowly.

Repair

If all efforts to troubleshoot the function and power to the microwave still do not get the appliance heating food as expected, there may be a repair issue that needs to be addressed. Contact professional technician for advice.

Microwave shut-off within 2-3 minutes


Why don't you return it? I think this is a common problem. We returned ours to Home Depot with no questions asked.
