There are several things that could cause a microwave not to heat. Most common is the magnatron and some models have up to a 5 yr warranty on that part. Check the owners manual for that info.

your micrwave may run fine at 110 but it draws more power than the generator is putting out when the magnetron kicks on which is the part that creates the microwave causing the food to heat up. In other words the amperage is too low for the microwave. Amperage is what matters not voltage.

Magic Chef MCO160UQ Carousel turning slowly


The turnable motor is going, the buzzing indicates the magnetron is about to fail. I suggest using the microwave oven until it dies and replace it, not cost effective to repair.

Magic chef microwave oven model mco160uq has power and plate spins but no heat generated. Any troubleshooting suggestions?


There are three causes that come to mind, magnetron, high voltage capacitor, and high voltage diode. The diode runs off one lead to the capacitor and the other to chassis ground, sometimes cracks or shorts, the capacitor "silver and rectangular" usually shorts, the magnetron will open in most cases. Unplug microwave, short out capacitor with a screwdriver to remove residual voltage, test with a digital meter, set to ohms and unhook one side of part before test in each case.
