If there is no heating please do not switch on unless you have confirmed the fault. It is possible that the Magnetron is faulty, the temperature cut off is faulty or the main capacitor is short. It is also quite possible that insect can get into the oven and create soft spots. When you switch on these will create a short and make the voltage jump and in the long run damage the magnetron.
So Remove cover after disconnecting , check for dirt/moisture in the cabin, if so wipe clean and dry, check the magnetron and area clean and use an jet air to clean off.
Make sure that the program controller is working if not check power - step down supply, the pads are responding- if not faulty pads- or the door switches, if contact is not through the microwave will not work.

Now keeping clear of the microwave, switch on, use a cup of water inside to test.
If you notice any sparks shut off as the magnetron or the main HT capacitor can be faulty. replace with same type.
If there is heating without any issues, you can use the microwave safely

Microwave fan goes on by itself without burners being on or used


It sounds like you understand that the exhaust fan is SUPPOSED TO come on when the microwave oven gets hot when exposed to the heat of the range below it, since you mentioned that no burners are turned on. So in that case, I'm pretty sure that you have a bad fan thermostat. It's usually located behind the control panel on the bottom (inside bottom) of the microwave floor.

My smeg microwave will not heat the food ...... possible causes


If everything else is working but it won't heat the food, the causes are the magnetron "common failure" or the high voltage capacitor and diode can be a factor, the three work together to heat the food. Depending on the nature of repair it can be close to the cost of a new microwave oven.

My microwave is not producing any heat its runs but doesn't heat, the cooling fan still comes on. its a SMEG microwave Convection grill oven model NO:SA971C2 could it just be a fuse or something like...


usually not a fuse if other parts are running

There is only one fuse inside the unit. It may be the Magnatron, depending on its age. This would be an expensive fix. If its still under warranty I would call for a sevice before it expires

Does not heat food.


Dont have many smegs where i am, but smeg is a decent unit, so i would think if there is no heat, look for a reset button (over temp. protection). possibly located at the back where the elements are wired.

Microwave not heating up


Check the door switch, when it is faulty the oven will turn on but turntable, fan and magnetron wont operate.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

You can also order from MicrowaveSvc , they also provide parts.

Smeg fmc24x oven and grill work turntable and microwave dont


I have a simular model and I found that the circuit board has three black relays, one for the grill one for the convection and one for the microwave. I found that the microwave one wasnt working so by swaping the microwave one with the convection one I got it to work and then replaced the faulty one with a new one at a later date.
