Common faults or combinations of faults:

Main processor board is defective.

Control devices, thyrisistor or relay on the processor board has failed, and or the drive components to this device.

Defective safety switches.

High voltage power supply failure. Usually the high voltage rectifier, and or the power transformer, and or the main high voltage capacitor, and or the magnetron.


I suggest that you DO NOT mess inside your microwave oven. This is probably the most dangerious appliance in the home next to the TV set. There are very high voltages employed. If you do any maintenance on a microwave oven and if something is not right there is also risk of high frequency EMF radiation exposure.

After opening a microwave oven and doing service on it. We always did a ratiation test to make sure that there is no leakage while it is in operation.

I suggest you do some reading at the links below.

The microwave turns on but does not get hot. The light is on, the the clock, the timer and everything works, except that the food does not get hot. I tried to heat up some water and doesn not change its...


you need to remove the outer cover,then carefully discharge the high voltage capacitor with 2 insulated screwdrivers or an insulated jumper wire,then test this and the high voltage diode and the internal ceramic fuse for continuity

Nothing is hot - everything is on


Check the door safefy interlock switches before you plunk your $ down.

If you open your oven to check the contents without turning the oven off first ... the tiny switches arc and start to burn ... once they cannot make contact ... the oven doesn't know if the door is open or closed so it will not turn on the heat.

It is worth checking ...
