    Do the inside light and turntable come on when you try to cook?

    Is it making any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

    Please reply back with your brand and model number so we can help you.

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.

In this case, the magnetron is the most likely suspect, but other suspects would be :

- 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 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

the minor fault is open of therm stat for protection.
or burnt fuse in circuit.

Microwave will not heat


If everything else works, like display, light, turntable, but does not heat, it probally the magentron circuit that failed. It the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. When it fails, it makes a loud buzzing sound. If this is the case, it not worth fixing since the replacement magnetron cost as much as a new oven. Sorry.

Microwave taking much longer to heat food


The microwaves are produced by what is known as a KLYSTRON TUBE. Like anything, early failure is possible. There is also the possibility that the transformer or electronic circuit providing the correct voltage to the KLYSTRON has failed, either from over-use, manufacturing defect, or leakage from the KLYSTRON enclosure, which creates heat.
With microwaves being as CHEAP as they are, replacement should not be an issue.

Model #GLEB27M9FBB. Microwave interior light goes


Sounds like you Magnetron or PSU has failed, or perhaps it is just a sensor.
DO NOT try to repair this yourself.
These items MUST be repaird by an authorised person. They are leathal!
Take it to a reputable repair shop and get a diagnosis.. more often than not, though, it is cheaper to simply buy a new one. Oh get a warrenty too.

Microwave turns on goes threw the motions but wont heat up..


If it is running, including plate rotating, and there is no heat, then you need to replace either a part called magnetron, or one called high voltage capacitor (HV cap.).

The magnetron is located behind a protective plate on the internal side of the owen. The high voltage capacito is in microwave circuits behind the main wall.

Both parts are not expensive.

Here you see a general diagram, and you can also buy the parts. Browse with the mouse on top of the picture to see the magnetron.

Here you can also get parts and diagrams.

If you want to call atechnician you can use the number listed on the owner manual.

Kenmore 89942 Microwave no longer heating food


Grass...I'd go for checking the fuses and the thermosensor...a black plastic button with two wires coming out of it that is about the diameter of a dime and 3/8 inch thick. If either is open, no power to the magnetron. Your unit may have a diagram inside. Have a look. The magnetron...? I doubt it.
