Most times when it won't heat that is a sign of a problem with the magnetron itself. Usually the magnetron's have a longer warranty then the microwave itself. I would consider following this link and setting up a service call to check out the microwave.

    Right, if it's not under warranty then most often the price of the magnetron means replacement is the smartest economical solution.
    Thank you and have a great day.

Our Advantium 120 oven (model # SCA1001KSS 02, Manufactured June 2008)is not working. Began w/ time not coming on when cooking and just a little green microwave light shows while cooking.


Typical of a control microchip failure caused by a power surge. With a microwave as old as yours, it is safest to simply replace the entire oven rather than attempt to fix it, as older magnetrons are likely to fail.

Whirlpool Gold Accuwave 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.

Whirlpool(GH7145XF2-0) does not work occasionally


That's how it would sound if you were cooking on a power level less than full power.

If you enter the cooking time and hit Start, it should cook at full power by default and not cycle like you describe.

If you are using some sensor cook setting or automatic type cooking setting, it may cycle like that normally.

The first thing to try is a "hard reset". Unplug it from the power line for a minute, plug it back in, set the clock, then try again.

Let us know if the hard reset doesn't fix it.

If you don't have your manual, you can download it free here. Check the lower right area to enter your model. number.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Advantium -- wont cook


The solution to this problem is to replace the magnetron. I had the same symptoms, and I got a used magnetron and replaced it. It takes some advanced electrical skill, and you have to disassemble the oven all the way to the inside stainless steel. I have the same exact model, manufactured in November of 1999.

Kenmore Microwave Hood Combination: over the stove Model #721.80602500


Disclaimer: I'm a DIYer, not a technician.

Our GE over-the-range microwave stopped producing heat yesterday while warming part of the T-giving feast. Everything else (fan, control panel, light) works fine.

After disassembly and testing last night, I discovered a defective "secondary door switch." Your Kenmore uses a similar switch (~$19 on-line), and that might be the problem. But it also could be other things, such as a bad thermal cut-out.

If you know anyone who's handy with a multimeter, most of the basic diagnostics seem to be pretty straightforward.
