Question about Bosch HMT8625GB Microwave Oven
The microwave controls and mechanisms - door, timer, turn-table, etc. all work fine - but the microwave is not heating the food at all
Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.
