Goldstar model MV1610WW (over the oven model) Everything works except the heat - (the most important) If I don't want to try to fix it myself (for fear of being electrocuted) who do I call? (electrician, appliance store technician or just replace the microwave?)

It doesnt matter how old a system was. components can be failed at any point in time. unplug the unit. carefully disassembly and visually check the diode near magnetron and capacitor, it might be broken.If seems good, check the thermostat continuity,if beeping. changage your magnetron. be careful capacitor store charges that deadly. discharge the capacitor first.
when you change mag. change the diode too.

    If mounted on the wall or cabinet, you need a helper to hold it when unscrew.

    Remove the whole screws at the top and the two sides.One lead of the diode is connected to the magnetron the other leg connected to the capacitor.

The turntable motor is defective, since it is 6 months old your warranty should cover the repair or replacement of the microwave oven.

My microwave oven isn't heating my food. Everything else works, the fan, the lights and the keypad. The microwave turns and sounds like everything is working but the food won't get hot. It is only 6 months...


Small component called a diode. Open up the microwave and try to find a black (usually) component that is most often connected between the magnetron (the thing that heats the food) and the chassis of the microwave oven (ground). I used to make a fortune replacing these! Costs about 5 bucks most appliance supply stores. Make darn sure you get one of the same value.

It may be a shorted high voltage diode.

Since it's less than one year old, it would be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

Ge spacemaker runs but wont heat


Hi, there are three issues that will cause a no heat situation in a microwave. these issue are a failed Magnetron, busted cut-off fuse and, failed diode.

I recommend checking all these area that are located inside the microwave for faults.

The most common issue will be a failed Magnetron.

The diode and, fuse will be located on the noise filter assembly.

Cookworks microwave not heating up


Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

If for some reason you don't have your owner's manual, I would suggest calling the dealer where you bought it to see if they have a number for Cookworks.

My microwave turns on but does not heat up it is only 6 months old wot can it be


It may have a defective magnetron. If this microwave is 6 months only, still under manufacturers warranty and you should take it for repair.
The magnetron has a warranty of 5 years in some cases, read the warranty section of the users manual.
Good Luck.
