How old is it, it may be time for a new microwave as they are usually cheaper to replace than service

Put a hot pocket in for 3 min and it doesnt even


the unit inside the microwave that heats called the "magnetron" has gone bad or the circuits that power the magnetron have failed. if its under warranty still, send it back to the manufacturer. if not you can call some repair shops and see how much it would be to service it, but its most likely going to be cheaper to purchace a new microwave since they are relatively cheap these days

MICROWAVE RUNS BUT DOESNT WARM OR COOK


Sounds like the diode is broken in it (shorted or open). If you open it up you will see a big diode up by the radiation chamber. test it with a ohm meter and see if it reads short in one direction and open or at least 600 ohms in the other (be sure microwave is off abviously). Without this diode, the mocrowave does not do anything. Let us know how that comes out. thanks!

Microwave-doesn't warm anything anymore


Hello rarms1965... chances are that your microwave was the recipeint of a power surge during the power outage you mentioned.. there is no way of knowing what component took the brunt of a surge and it could very well be your magnetron tube, filament transformer of any number of control logic components.. The problem is that anytime you open the case to check things.. unless you know what to look for or even more so.. what NOT to touch ( High Voltage Capacitor comes to mind) you don't know what you are up against. If it isn't a real expesive model ( you didn't provide a brand or model with your inquiry).. then the cost to diagnose & repair could very well exceed teh cost to replace.. Your call.. but whatever you do.. be sure you KNOW what you are doing..
Good Luck my friend..
