Question about Microwave Ovens
Tootsiepop5 - Your unit is less than a year old, so it should be under warranty. I would contact the manufacturer for warranty service.
Guests - 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 (such as a shorted diode)
