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

I would suggest a hard reset - unplugging it for a few minutes then trying again.
If you don't have the owner's manual, you can download it here:
If it doesn't have an option to turn sounds on and off, you may have a problem with the keypad or control board.
Moisture may have gotten into the controls from steam (from not using the exhaust fan while cooking on the stove top) or spray cleaner (from spraying the keypad directly instead of spraying it on a soft cloth).
Please reply back with more details if you need further help.

This is a sure sign that the MAGNATRON needs replaced (this is what heats up the food) if every thing else works but food not cooking! 99% of time it is the magnatron!

Chances are it's a defective high voltage rectifier diode or magnetron.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
You can download Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions can be downloaded through the links here. where you can also locate a nearby authorized servicer if you choose.
The magnetron has a 10-year part warranty, but you would have to pay labor.
If nothing else, you can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

The reset is because it lost power at some point. There could be a loose wire internally or a blown fuse. Your call to open the console and check a few things your self or call fr service. Eric
