Usually that is a sign that your magnetron tube has gone bad (shorted out).

Microwave will not heat, but will turn on. Clock and Timer still work. Turntable turns. Making a loud humming noise and light flickers


This clearly indicates a bad magnetron, "heats food" in most cases it is cheaper to replace the microwave oven than have it repaired, since the magnetron is the heart of the unit.

KitchenAid KCMS1555RSS stopped heating. Everthing else works, full display works, time counts down, turntable rotates, light comes on, etc. but no heat. makes loud hum. Magnatron? Cost to replace? Unit is...


If it is making a loud noise, check the diode and magnetron for damage.
BEWARE OF LETHAL VOLTAGES!
The fault may be just the diode and a reasonable cost will be involved. If it is the magnetron, depending upon where you purchase one from will command the price.
Hope that helps.

Display works, turntable turns, but it won't heat.


If it making a loud humming or buzzing noise when it is turned on, it could mean that the magnetron has failed. If that is the case, then it typically not worth fixing, since the cost to repair is almost as much as a new oven.

Makes loud noise and doesnt heat. Timer, clock, turntable & other things work. Model # 665.61632100


Most likely the magnetron is bad. I'm guessing a household model. Unplug unit and unplug the connection at the magnetron and run again. The noise will likely be gone. If you do replace the magnetron, replace the diode that goes with it.

Turntable does not turn and fan won't exhaust


The second problem is probably defective door switches, or it may be a problem with the control panel, which we repair nationwide for only $32.50. On my Web site, I have info on safety, disassembly, and diagnosing and replacing door switches: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk Running it empty has damaged the magnetron. It will work for a while, but it will eventually have to be replaced. A good parts source is here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
