Hi, the problem that your having with your microwave is one that is not cost effective to fix unless yours is a high-end microwave if its not, i would just purchase a new microwave. Also the heating element is whats wrong with it, and it is only recommended that a service professional replace it because of the danger of radiation. I hope that this has help you with your problem.Thanks, and good luck.

Our new microwave heats the containers but not the food. Container is too hot to touch. Food "looks" hot, usually boiling - but food isn't even warm.


Check on the material the containers are made of. If they are not microwave friendly then they will cause problems.
Some materials are designed to "Roast" the contents by absorbing the energy.
Check with a Pyrex glass container and water. The glass should stay fairly cool.

If you can't get the food warm or hot, the problem is usually that the magnetron has gone bad. It's an expensive part to replace compared to the price of a new oven.

My ifb microwave oven is getting hot outside while


Normally when u cook food in microwave the fod is cooked by microwaves, which means the heat is generated with in food. The temperature inside is never too hot and all the heat produced is absorbed with in the food.

On the other hand when the grill is switched on, a separate heatting element gets switched on. You can see this red hot element on the top side of inside of microwave. the heat from this element gets transferred to food through air circulation. But partof heat also gets transferred to the walls of microwave oven. This is the reason the wall feel hot during use of grill.

As i see ther is no problem with the microwave itself. Jut kep delicate thngs a bit away from the microwave.

Kenmore Microwave Won't Heat Food


The service manual is here.

Unless there's a bad connection at a magnetron terminal, I would say you have a failing magnetron.

It is part number 2B71165R and you can get it from the Pros here for $68.59 (subject to change).

Microwave does not heat food placed in the center of the turntable. Leaves a cold spot in the middle of the food.


This is normal. That's why I always recommend to my customers that the food be placed slightly off-center on the turntable. An analogy I refer to is stirring paint: If you stir paint with a stick by simply rotating the stick in the center of the can, it's far less effective than pulling the stick around an imaginary circle halfway bewteen the center and the edge.
