Question about Maytag MMV5186A Microwave Oven
Water is always called for in standard microwave heating tests.
By design, water molecules are what are targeted by the microwave cooking process.
If your line voltage is correct and it is slow to heat, then almost certainly your magnetron is failing.
If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty but out of the original full warranty, then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

NOTE: There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting.
