Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
This is a fairly common problem on the older microwaves
There is a part inside of the microwave that is called the megetron this what heats up the food and they do go out after time so i would have to tell you to first if you can remove the power to the microwave then on the back of the unit remove all of the screws that are along the edges then remove the side screws then the cover should slide back about 1 to 2 inches then come off
Now since i do not know th exact make and model of the microwave i cant get you a exact picture but here is what one looks like Everything works except the microwaves
nothing - tbirdfan1_11.gif
simply remove the 2 wires form it and remove the part and get a new part and reinstall then replace the cover and test ok?
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Mike

The magnetron is the likely cause, "heats food" the repairs will approach the cost of a new microwave oven.

Brand new microwave lights up plate turns around everything works except nothing heats up! Please advise!


If everything works, but no heat sounds like the magnetron circuit has failed. Since it is brand new, just take it back to the store and complaint that it does not work, and ask for a refund or replacement oven.

The microwave isn't heating/cooking on any setting but the turntable, light is working. What should I check before calling a repairman?


There is nothing more you can do, you have verified everything is working except it is not heating the food. The next step is have the repairman come in to isolate the cause.

Nothing is hot - everything is on


Check the door safefy interlock switches before you plunk your $ down.

If you open your oven to check the contents without turning the oven off first ... the tiny switches arc and start to burn ... once they cannot make contact ... the oven doesn't know if the door is open or closed so it will not turn on the heat.

It is worth checking ...

Under cabinet microwave went cold today. Other electrical accessories okay


Most microwaves have an internal fuse. There is a good chance it is blown. Check your manual see if this is easily replaced. The other issue is of course why it blew the fuse in the beginning.

Sharp 1870 just quit cooking and no turntable


The fact that the microwave and convection both do not heat indicated that the oven is in demo mode, check the user manual, otherwise it will possibly be a relay not triggering, may need a pcb replacement, check Demo mode 1st....Phil
