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.

My microwave oven model kog-134k is not heating food, otherwise its functioning well.


The problem is caused more than likely by a defective magnetron, "heats food" because it is the heart of the microwave oven it is the most expensive to replace, it is cheaper in the long run to buy a new unit rather than have it repaired.

My samsung microwave oven is not heating up food. It works normally, lights on, food turning on plate, but not heating the food.


if your microwave does everything you have described , and you can hear the cooling fan running as well after you press the start button , you probably have a faulty wave guide. The wave guide is also called a Magnetron Tube. It is the main part of the microwave which produces the microwave energy . If this part is not functioning it is best to replace the entire unit, rather than have it repaired .

Food will not heat everything else is working


If it does not heat, with all other functions working, the problem lies with the magnetron circuit. The magnetron is the part that makes the microwaves to heat the food. Typically, the magnetron fails and shorts out. Symptoms when this occurs is a loud hum from the oven and does not heat the food. The replacement magnetron costs are close to the price of a new microwave oven, so it rarely pays to have it fixed.
