Dear friend,
ngfam at you service! happy to assist!

If there is no power at all then perhaps the fuse is blown in the microwave.
How old is it?
The magnetron tube could be burned out! and its cheaper to buy a new one usually!

We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service!

Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide
And are available 24/7 for making appointments!

If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!

Happy to assist you,

I have a MV1604ST over the range microwave oven. After I made my daughter's breakfast this morning, the fan kicked on and will not shut off. It has been running for hours. The microwave still works and...

There si a sensor on the bottom of those Micros that is supposed to turn the fan on when it closes, meaning it is hot, then opening when it cools back down. I expect you have a bad thermal sensor. I have very seldom found these to go bad. Another thing that can cause it is a bad door switch back feeding voltage where it is not supposed to. It will make the fan that cools the magnetron run until the bad switch is replaced.

Gold Star 1515W microwave not heating up and when

The magnetron (the part that heats the food) may be bad or the circuitry to the magnetron may have burned out. Basically my advice is that if you have no electrical expertise, it isn't worth fixing. The magnetron if bad, costs almost as much as a new microwave. If you open it up (make sure it has been unplugged for a few hours and don't seen any obvious burnt parts, then most likely the magnetron is done and a new microwave is the way to go.

Let me know how this works out for you.

My gold star microwave worked lastnight. Went to

The outside bottom of your microwave usually has a belt hidden underneath a small cover directly under the turntable. This belt sometimes falls off or breaks, and sometimes the motor that turns the belt fails. Most time the motor can be found if you remove the main top cover of the microwave, about 10 screws.
Parts can be easily found at your local appliance parts store.

Best of luck.

I have the same problem. Everything seems to work except it doesn't heat up food.
I remember last time when it was working. I pressed the start botton before I closed the door. So it didn't start automatically, and I pushed start and it worked(it still heat up the food), but it doesn't work now. Help Please!!!
I have a Whirlpool Gold GH5184XPQ.

Thanks in advance
