Question about Whirlpool MH1170XS Microwave Oven
Microwave does not heat. Turn table turns, fan blows, keypad works, but food does not get hot. What is wrong
With the symptoms you mention, I would suspect:
- loose or corroded connection at the magnetron
- bad magnetron
- shorted high voltage diode

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