It sounds like it is the "magnetron" has given up. In any Microwave there is a device called magnetron. This is the device which radiates microwave to heat up anything inside for set time.

Before the device gives up most of the time usually the microwave makes little bit of loud noise. Usually it happens when there is abnormal power.

Remedy: Any qualified technician should be able to replace it. The spare is available from the service centre of the manufacturer. In most cases spare is expensive and it is better off to buy another one.

The microwave keeps stopping


If you are actually selecting heating time rather than pushing the "quick heat" button, the control board may be defective.

I have a neff combi microwave oven and it stops working after 20 seconds and doesn't heat the food


It is one of three things, the microwave oven, "heart of the system" inverter board, "if less than 7 years old" and the keypad control board. all parts mentioned are not cheap.

My Panasonic microwave, Dimension4, The Genius, will not keep running after start button is pushed. It runs for only two or three seconds.


There is a thermal fuse that monitors heat from the magnetron, sometimes becomes defective, the magnetron "heats food" filiment will open on occassion, if the exhaust fan is not running microwave will shutdown.

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

My panasonic genius microwave is about 4 years old and it just died is there any way of fixing it


my microwave started giving me notices to check the manual and would stop cooking the food. I turned the machine off, unplugged and looked at the back panel. Was I surprised to find the air flow vents completely covered in black dust. After wiping it up with a cloth and then a small toothbrush to completely clean out the air holes, the microwave works fine. What a simple solution to something I was beginning to think would be a major repair job. Surprise---simple is best!!
