This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or occasionally a problem on the control panel.

Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside. Its continuity must be checked.

Doorswitch or mount trouble can be caused by slamming the door or byopening the door while it's cooking without hitting the Stop pad first.

Thereare plastic mounts inside the microwave which hold the door switchesand onto which the door latches lock when you close the door.

The screws on these mounts may be loose. If they get too loose, the switches will not be activated properly.

Sometimesit's a broken tab on the switch holder, allowing the switch to rotatejust out of position. Other times, it's a broken tab on the switchholder, allowing the switch to rotate just out of position. This tabcan be hard to see, since it is under the bottom edge of the switch.

Ifyou or someone you know decide to look into it, we have criticalinformation on safety, disassembly and door switches at our site, andour link is at our listing here on FixYa:.

My Kenmore Built-in microwave doesn't heat and the turn table doesn't turn. Model 911-47812200


It is good that the microwave does not work all together. It might be an interlock button or even a relay connection burn on the main mother circuit board.

Need a qualified technician. The service manual will be like $20-50.

Had problem with Sharp R-520L. Microwave suddenly


One of the door switches is the problem. Open the casing, and you should find the schematic diagram. Find the switches, and test if you can. If you cannot - replace all of them except the monitor switch.

Microwave does not heat but light goes on and the table turns


The klystron tube that provides radio (micro) waves to the enclosure is not working. Problem could be (and most likely is) the high voltage power supply that feeds the klystron tube. Alternately, it is the tube itself. In this society (throw away), it may be less costly to just find another microwave on sale or on Craig's list and replace yours.

The klyston is very expensive and the power supply replacement is labor intensive.... sorry.

MICROWAVE WILL NOT HEAT


check the connections on the h.v side because the unit works on 4500 volts and if there are any bad connctions it will not reach its working voltage and will not energize.remove all the connections 1 at a time and tighten all the terminals and try it again.you will not be able to test the components with a digital multimetre as it does not have the range.you need an analoge unit with a 10k scale and a 9 volt battery inside or it will give you falsr readings.teh diode which is thge little black unit with 1 side down to earth should read half way with the laeds on 1 way then when you put it on the opposite side it should not move.the capacitor will make the needle of the multimetre flick up when put onto the terminals both ways.the magnetron should have a short reading on the terminals but with 1 connected to the terminal of the input and 1 to the case it should not read at all,hope this helps regards les

Non-working parts


I would pop the back of the microwave cover off and check the fuses with a tester make sure that they are not blown. A lot of the time the connections will fry up as well. I have repaired a few microwaves in my time and usually something like that is a very simple fix.
