With the symptoms you mention, I would suspect:

- loose or corroded connection at the magnetron
- bad magnetron
- shorted high voltage diode

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

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.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

SOURCE: the microwave does not heat and the turn table does not turn

Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

One of the door switches is the problem. Open the casing, and you should find the schematic diagram. Find the switches, and test if you can. If you cannot - replace all of them except the monitor switch.

I bought my microwave last year,It had been working but suddenly will not heat, the light comes on table turns and sounds like it is on but will not heat? please help


Repolace the microwave, the heating components like the magnatron would cost almost as much as a new microwave. If money is an issue try Goodwill, they usually sell microwaves for about 5-10$ which is WAY less than cost of parts.
