Heating The first time I used it, I didn't think that it wasn't heating correctly, but the food was horrible. Second use it didn't seem to get above 300F.

Some Deep Fryers heat up faster than others, please see details below for pre-heating times: Non-Immersion Element (No element in the Oil): 25 to 30 Minutes Immersion Element (Element in the Oil): 7 to 10 Minutes Are you by any chance overloading the fryer? try smaller batches. Preheat the oven to 180 to 200 F. Heat the oil in the fryer to 280 or 290 F. In small batches appropriate to the size of the fryer (fries for a serving of 4 people may need to be divided into 2 or 3 groups), fry each batch for about 8 minutes at this temp. Remove to a holding bowl. They will look limp, nasty and oily. (This uses 1/4" square fries from baking pototoes cut with a standard mandoline.) When all the fries have been precooked, increase the oil temp to 375 F. Add the fries back to the oil in the same sized batches as before. It will take 3 to 5 minutes for them to crisp and brown. Drain, salt, and move to a cloth-lined bowl and hold in the 180 F. oven. Let the oil temp recover to 375 F. and cook the next batch in the same manner. Repeat, holding interim fries in the 180 oven, until all the fries are done. When all batches are done, toss to distribute salt and the new fries with old, and serve immediately. Properly done, all commercial french fries pale in comparison to these. However, I cannot guarantee that this method works with frozen commercial products. I always use fresh baking pototoes. That said, the frozen product should work to its optimal advantage when done in small batches with the first batches held in the warming oven as the other batches are done. If it still doesn't reach 300 F then by all means take it back to the shop and ask for a replacement. If you're out of warranty get an estimate for a repair. Good luck and bon apetite ;]

My microwave is not heating food although everything else seems to be working. What do you think is wrong? Would this be a costly repair?

Sounds like the magnetron tube has burned out so you don't get power. It's the heart of the microwave. Time to shop for another, not worth repairing.

Oven will not heat

Since bake and broil use different elements, and it is unlikely both went out at once, and then I would suspect the switch instead of the elements.

Microwave sparked out now it does not work

You had something metal inside the microwave. Do you have a rack inside on a revolving tray? On my microwave, if the foot of the wire rack is not on the revolving tray, it will spark against the floor of the oven. Microwave will go around round pieces of metal - it will spark if it finds a flat surface. I dont think you did any damage to your machine but try to not do this again.

I hope this helps you.

Sharp microwave losing cooking power

If the supply voltage is low it will take long time to heat foods. The second reason is the Magnetron. Since it is in the warranty period you can call at the sharp authorised service center. They will do it free of coast.

MICROWAVE NOT HEATING

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

Convection oven problem

Most of the time the magnetron is defective if the food is not heating up.
In some cases there is a defective low power transformer or other componenents associated with the magnetron.
I would suggest to check the owners manual under the warranty section. Sometimes the magnetron has 5 years warranty.
Good Luck.
