Hi. this is a possible heating device malfunction. You may be able to reset the main controls in this case. I recommend to unplug, or shut-down the appropriate circuit breaker for 3 minutes. This will drain all power, and possibly reset the board. This may fix the issue if the damage is not severe.

Now, if after the 3 minute reset, the unit continues to not heat, this will confirm that the main heating device(magnetron),has failed. It is possible that the cut-off fuse has failed. If this is the case, simply replace the fuse. If the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

Is it possible that some spray cleaner accidentally got into the controls?

Direct spraying of cleaners on the keypad and steam from the cooktop can damage the controls.

I always recommend that you spray non-ammonia cleaner on a soft cloth (not a paper towel which can scratch) and gently wipe the keypad.

And I always recommend that you use the vent fan whenever you're cooking on the stove top to keep heat, steam, and grease out of the controls and door panels.

If it does not dry out over time, it may need to be manually dried or blown out.

The keypad may be damaged or worn out, or control unit may be damaged.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find your mini-manual, or if you want to look at it before removing the controller, you can download it here (just enter your model number).

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

If you (or someone you know) might want to replace it yourself, I have uploaded a handy guide with pictures showing you what's typically involved.

On some models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame.
That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

Disconnect the strip as shown in the photo below, then remove the screws that hold your circuit board in the old frame.

Then carefully (since the display is made of glass) move your circuit board to the new frame, and reassembly is the reverse of disassembly.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number) for more information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

If your microwave has a turntable its probably just burnt food inside or above the oven chamber that has carbonized. If it doesn't have a turntable its possible the stirrer above the oven chamber is stuck and not moving the microwaves around, therefore causing over heating and arcing. It also could be that the stirrer blades are hitting inside. Hope this helps
