SOURCE: Where is the fuse?
It won't be the fuse. If the fuse were out, it would be completely dead.
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

Since the light comes on and the turntable rotates, I would suspect a bad magnetron, a loose connection at the magnetron, a failed high voltage transformer, or shorted high voltage rectifier diode.
If it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty.I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.
Ifit's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years)but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then yourmanufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you orthe labor charge to do the work.
If you or a friend want to work on it, please see these links first:http://www.microwavedisplay.com/safety.txt& http://www.microwavedisplay.com/disassembly.txt
Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
Thereshould also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind thecontrol panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which isvery helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

It sounds like you are missing part of your input voltage.
I would take a voltage reading at the receptacle and confirm you are reading 220-240VAC. Some homes have the 220 service receptacles wired up with two 120 volt breakers to make up your 220 service. If your home is configured this way, you may have one of the breakers tripped. Or, the receptacle itself may be bad. If you confirm you have the correct voltage at the receptacle, your power cord may be bad.
The reason the clock and display will still appear to work is because the clock only uses 110-120VAC and is tapped off the source voltage. The surface burners and the oven heating elements, however, require the full 220 service.
If you are confused by this explanation, please post back and let me know. Hopefully, this is a problem that will not require any parts or a service call. If the power cord is bad, you can purchase a replacement at any hardware store. I hope this information is helpful.

Testimonial: "I will definitely check both the 120v wires in receptacle feeding power to the stove. The breaker in the house breaker box is a single 60amp breaker. "
