Hi,

If the food is not being heated it means the magnetron is not working. The magnetron is the device which generates microwaves which heat the food. It could be the magnetron itself which is faulty or it could be one or 2 other components causing the magnetron not to work. You will have to take your microwave oven to a service center to determine the exact cause & get a repair quotation.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graeme

If your microwave runs, but doesn'theat your food, verify that you have selected a cooking setting. You mayaccidentally set the timer. Test the magnetron by placing 1 cup of water in themicrowave and heating the water for three minutes. If the water doesn't heat,your magnetron is dead.

    Microwave light comes on and turntable revolves when food is put in, but it doesn't heat food up. Food remains cold, can you help? thanks Dee


    9 times out of ten it is the magnatron that has gone bad, that is the device that creates the microwaves for heating the food. Check inside the cabinet for fuses and if none found or blown then it is the magnatron. These are available widespread but most cost about as much as a new oven, so do a google search on your make and model of microwave and search for a magnatron for that unit. This will bring up parts suppliers and their prices and you can decide if it is worth fixing or replacing

    Everything works...Except for actually heating the food


    It has a bad magnetron. This is the tube that provides the microwaves to heat the food. Not too easy to replace yourself but it can be done. Cost of magnetron is probably less than $50 or $60.
