It sounds like the magnetron may have either failed or is not being supplied with the extremely high voltage required to run it.
Make sure the !!!!capacitor is discharged!!!!! before attempting any sort of repair.
Check the door interlock switches first then the high voltage diode with either an AVO model 8 on high resistance range for short circuit, the capacitor can fail and go short circuit, the feed fuse on the primary of the high voltage transformer and then finally, the magnetron is best checked by substitution.
Hope that helps.

I have a Oster Microwave (OM1201E0VG), it's almost like new, works but suddenly has NO HEAT. I would hate to get rid of it, only had for a couple of years. Can it be fixable or should I toss it?


You might want to check the door microswitches for proper function. My microwave ovens have four separate switches on the door, one controls the actual heating, and if that switch goes bad, no heat. They're inexpensive and easy to replace.

My oster 1000 watts microwave is not getting hot


There is a semiconductor device called a triac, if food is warm the microwave is not running at full power because the triac is defective.

It sounds like the thermal fuse may be defective, or the fan is not running, or the magnetron is getting to hot. If there are any heat issues the thermal fuse will cut power and reset in 5 minutes.

My Oster microwave (model #OGG21401) doesn't heat. When operating the light will turn on and the carousel will turn but food will not get hot. Can you provide a solution to my problem? Thank you.


Check the door safety interlock switches for proper operation. #1 trouble with microwaves that operate in all respects but no heat.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

I have an Oster 1.2 cu. ft counter top microwave model OM1201E0VG. I purchased this model about a month ago. Every time we run it there is a grinding noise as the turn table rotates. I have checked...


There is still factory warranty on this and most stores wold even take it back if there is a problem. Please don't try and repair something that can be fixed under warranty or they will void the warranty. My advice is to put it all back to gether and then take it to the store you purchased it from and demand an exchange. They most likely will return it no questions asked if it is that new.

New oven model OM1201E0VG will not heat. Microwave worked at the store but I cannot get it to heat. Comes on but does not heat anything.


Call your dealer where you brought it. It's new purchase, you said it so, but read first operating manual.
That's the thing you need to do. I hope I help you.

Kenmore microwave Model 72 8975590 (750 W) is taking longer to heat food. Takes 3.5 min to bring one cup water to boil, previously took 2,5 to 3 min. Does the element lose power over time?


I can adjust the power level so that circuitry seems to be ok. The longer water boil time could be partially due to the colder winter temperature of the inlet water. We'll just cook the food a bit longer as long as the magnetron is still working.

Microwave keeps shutting off


The magnetron is overheating, tripping the thermostat, which shuts off all power until it cools down.

This is usually caused by a blocked air vent, failed internal cooling fan, or failing magnetron.

If it's out of warranty, I'm sure you'll find it's uneconomical to repair, even if you could get parts for this brand.

Good luck.

Ask here, it seems they can get you every Oster manual as a PDF file. Maybe they have a more detailed version?
