Sounds like the magnetron has failed. It will need replacing by a qualified microwave engineer to be sure it's safe.

Setting level power of microwafe samsung


You can either choose to select the SET levels for the heat which can be a direct button or you can select the power button and scroll up or down the settings. Also the weight of the food must be chosen to be effective for the heat.

The microwave does not heat up the food but everything works except the fact that it don't heat up the food


Hi!

The most common cause of the problem you described is a burned fuse. It is normally located inside the case, directly on a wire leading from the transformator to the magnetron. If you are not sure about those parts, please get a professional to fix the issue.

Good luck!

Doesn't heat


Hi,

If the food is not being heated you will need to have the oven checked by a service center technician.
Your oven has a device called a magnetron which generates microwaves which heat the food.
It could be the magnetron itself which is faulty or another component which works alongside the magnetron.

Best wishes,

Hi my microwave is not heating food


There is a tube I believe, in microwaves that produce the waves that heat the food. A fan usually disperses the waves to make the heating more even, rather than cooking one spot and leaving the rest cold or frozen.

Replace it. Cheaper than the fix, unless it is only the fan. But you still have to take it in, and there will be a service charge on top of the parts replacement.

My samsung microwave oven is not heating up food. It works normally, lights on, food turning on plate, but not heating the food.


if your microwave does everything you have described , and you can hear the cooling fan running as well after you press the start button , you probably have a faulty wave guide. The wave guide is also called a Magnetron Tube. It is the main part of the microwave which produces the microwave energy . If this part is not functioning it is best to replace the entire unit, rather than have it repaired .

Samsung microwave doesn't heat food.


Microwave ovens that do not heat, and failed as you have described, have 1 or more of the following failed components, in order of cost -

1) Fuse
2) Diode
3) Capacitor
4) Transformer
5) Magnetron

4 and 5 are interchangeable when it comes to cost.

Try replacing 1 and 2, then 3, then it's decision time of whether to buy parts or replace the microwave.

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.
