Microwave has suddenly stopped warming. It runs, rotates, etc., but when a mug of cold coffee that usually heats up in one minute doesn't change temp. could it be a fuse? If it is a fuse, where would I find it on the unit?
I just had the same problem with my over the range microwave in my RV. I took the unit out, took the cover off to expose the inside and found that the magnatron was fried (where the wires plug into the magnatron, the plastic shield was melted). I ordered a new one from repairclinic.com for 126.00. It was very easy to install, only one screw held it in.

HELLO. The solution is to test the magnetron as explain below.
* 1 Fill a mug with room temperature water from your kitchen sink.
* 2 Place the mug of water on the glass cooking plate inside the microwave.
* 3 Set the microwave on "High" for one minute and press "Start." You should hear the magnetron hum while it is working.
* 4 Remove the mug carefully from the oven by its handle. The magnetron is working properly if the water is hot or warm. Contact the manufacturer for repair or a replacement oven if the water is still cold.
I also just had the same problem- the answer for me was the coffee mug. The sensor lights where you place your mug don't like certain coffee cups- in my case it was any clear mugs. First I had a clear acrylic coffee mug, then a clear glass mug, then tried regular opaque coffee mugs and it worked fine. So maybe if it's clear or somewhat transparent it might mess up the sensors. Hope that's all the problem is for you.
Ck and make sure the circuit breaker on the power panel on the house hasn't tripped.. If your microwave is within 6' of the kitchen sink, ck for a tripped GFCI controlling the power the microwave is plugged into. Good Luck, Ned
I own the same Microwave and it just gave me the same error code E-13. I was heating a large plastic coffee mug of cold water using the "beverage" control. The only thing out of the ordinary was I used very cold water from the Fridge. Maybe this had something to do with the Max time error. Hopefully this was a one off error.
