Question about Microwave Ovens
Will not heat food at all ! everything else appears to be working
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.
Since the turntable and light are working, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:
- loose or corroded connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron
- shorted high voltage diode
There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the
control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is
very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.
We\'re happy to help you and we\'d appreciate your
thoughtful rating of our answer.
