Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part (such as a shorted diode)

If it's within the magnetron portion of the warranty (usually 5-9 years) but out of the original full warranty (usually 1 year), then your manufacturer will cover the part cost, but not the cost to visit you or the labor charge to do the work.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

While I don't have the exact manual, I have a similar manual which I have uploaded to our site. It may help you or a friend with diagnosis. It's here.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

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.

MV1502W/B It just stopped heating. It turns on.


The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be bad or the circuitry to the magnetron may have burned out. Basically my advice is that if you have no electrical expertise, it isn't worth fixing. The magnetron if bad, costs almost as much as a new microwave. If you open it up (make sure it has been unplugged for a few hours and don't seen any obvious burnt parts (including a fuse and the diodes), then most likely the magnetron is done and a new microwave is the way to go.

Let me know how this works out for you.

Food will not heat everything else is working


If it does not heat, with all other functions working, the problem lies with the magnetron circuit. The magnetron is the part that makes the microwaves to heat the food. Typically, the magnetron fails and shorts out. Symptoms when this occurs is a loud hum from the oven and does not heat the food. The replacement magnetron costs are close to the price of a new microwave oven, so it rarely pays to have it fixed.

Microwave doesnt heat food


Microwave not heating problems are the result of one or more of the following problems -

1) Bad fuse
2) Bad diode
3) Bad capacitor
4) Bad transformer
5) Bad magnetron.

You would need to have special equipment to test the 2nd, 3rd, and 5th items.

Microwave problem turntable spinning after replacing door switches


Make sure the switches are connected EXACTLY as the original ones, maybe one was connected incorrectly. It also can be the controller board.
