    My micowave turns on but it does not heat the food. It makes a strange noise while it is running. The fan and lights both work fine.

5 yr old microwave has worked perfectly - until now. Put small amount of food on a safe plate in for 45 seconds. Plate suddenly cracked, was extremely hot - and food wasn't even warmed.


The plate wasn't microwave safe or has a crack in it that had moisture in it to cause it to split.
A new pyrex type glass plate will get it going again.

Our new microwave heats the containers but not the food. Container is too hot to touch. Food "looks" hot, usually boiling - but food isn't even warm.


Check on the material the containers are made of. If they are not microwave friendly then they will cause problems.
Some materials are designed to "Roast" the contents by absorbing the energy.
Check with a Pyrex glass container and water. The glass should stay fairly cool.

Microwave lights up plate turns something hums inside but the inside of the microwave never produces heat.


Sounds pretty normal but the inside is not supposed to get hot - only the food is.

Try heating a half glass of water for 1 minute if it gets hot... its working - if not then the actual microwave generating device inside has probably died.
In that case buy a new microwave oven as the cost of parts and labour to repair is usually more than cost of buying a new one.,

I tried to reheat food and didn't get any results. Could I have ruined it by turning it on without food?


well if you keep on running your microwave without any thing in it then yes! it burns out the magnatron
(thats the bit the heat come from) and when there burned out its a dust bin jod as there very pricy to by and its not a smart thing to do trying to fit a new one by yourself,, you stand a very good chance of just killing yourself first,,to test your microwave opn the door put inside a cup of cold water and turn on the microwave for 3 mins on full power, the water should be boiling by then,,,dont put anything in the hot water like milk or it could explode in your face! just tip it away

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

If it's still dead, since it's under warranty I would contact Whirlpool customer service for a free fix.
