Everything (lighting, hood fan, etc) is working on the microwave except it is not heating. Would prefer to get it fixed than buy a new one.

Microwave model MV-1510M is not heating, also sounds louder. Everything else is working, fan, lights, turntable etc..


If everything is working normally, except for heating, the likely cause is the magnetron.  Microwaves can be dangerous to work on, as the site below points out.  If you have an ohmmeter, it is possible to check the magnetron, but be certain to follow the precautions outlined at the webpage:

Microwave not heating


it can be saved but get a quote from the shop first before proceeding and always evaluate it against the cost of a new one,

Doesn't heat anything


It sounds like the micro generator has died.

Yes, you should buy a new one as the cost of repair is likely to be high.

Nothing is hot - everything is on


Check the door safefy interlock switches before you plunk your $ down.

If you open your oven to check the contents without turning the oven off first ... the tiny switches arc and start to burn ... once they cannot make contact ... the oven doesn't know if the door is open or closed so it will not turn on the heat.

It is worth checking ...

Does the turntable rotate? If everything but this works (except no heat), you probably have a bad door switch. Here's a discussion of what's involved in replacing it: http://www.fixya.com/support/t267796-kenmore_microwave_hood_combination_over

If the turntable does rotate, I'd suspect a more significant failure, such as the transformer, capacitor, or magnetron. If it's any of these, it's time to replace the unit.
