In a microwave oven the heat is generated by radio waves. These waves are generated by the magnetron. No functioning magnetron = no heat. For the magnetron to work it needs an extremely high tension, over 5000 volts. Because of that you shouldn't try to open it, not only you don't have the necessary very high voltmeter to test it, but if you touch something that you shouldn't it will kill you on the spot.
Unfortunately your oven is a very old model, parts for it are no longer manufactured. All you could get is a second hand part from the repair guy to which you would have to take the oven and that will certainly cost you almost as much as a new oven.
Your oven has died of old age, time for a new one.

Please I need the wattage of GoldStar microwave Model ER-868 so I can heat a heat pad for a sick animal


Wattage really doesn't matter much for what you want to use it for. Start with 2 minutes and test. If it's not hot enough add 1 more minute

My Goldstar microwave Mod.#MV1501W Does no get any power, light over the oven does no light up, the fuse in the unit is good.


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If the fuse is good then the problem is with the high voltage capacitor or the circuit board itself going bad and needs replacement. If it is a circuit board then it will cost you around same as new one. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have an old Goldstar microwave (MV1140T) that just stopped heating. The fan still works but the food won't heat up. What can I do?


The problem is caused by a bad magnetron, "common problem" or the high voltage capacitor and diode, all three work together to heat the food. The repair cost for parts and labor will be high enough to consider buying a new microwave oven.

Goldstar microwave


Open the cover and look for a fuse. If it's not blown then the power tube (klystron?) is probably fried.
