Hi,<br /> If this unit is only 1 week old, I would be calling the manufacturer tech service dept. Either they will send someone to fix it or they will have you return it for a replacement...<br /> Sounds like the Magnetron has failed....<br /> <br /> <span style="FONT-FAMILY: 'Trebuchet MS'; FONT-SIZE: 10pt; mso-ansi-language: EN" lang="EN"><br />Microwave Oven Basic Troubleshooting Tips<br /><a rel='nofollow' href="http://www.fixya.com/support/r5508031-microwave_oven_basic_troubleshooting" target="_blank">http://www.fixya.com/support/r5508031-microwave_oven_basic_troubleshooting</a><br /><br />heatman101</span><br />

If it is still under warrenty, do not have anyone touch it as it will then be nul and void. There will be 2 problem now with the microwave. The initial bang is one and the door comming off is the second. Making a long story short, replacing the microwave would be the best bet as the spares and labour and down time will not be viable. So try for that warrenty.

My microwave oven isn't heating my food. Everything else works, the fan, the lights and the keypad. The microwave turns and sounds like everything is working but the food won't get hot. It is only 6 months...


Small component called a diode. Open up the microwave and try to find a black (usually) component that is most often connected between the magnetron (the thing that heats the food) and the chassis of the microwave oven (ground). I used to make a fortune replacing these! Costs about 5 bucks most appliance supply stores. Make darn sure you get one of the same value.

Microwave wont heat


When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Kenmore Microwave Won't Heat Food


The service manual is here.

Unless there's a bad connection at a magnetron terminal, I would say you have a failing magnetron.

It is part number 2B71165R and you can get it from the Pros here for $68.59 (subject to change).
