While it's possible it could be a door switch or mount, it's most likely a bad magnetron or a bad connection at the magnetron or on the control board. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can order parts for Samsung models here: http://www.samsungparts.com/search/search.asp

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.

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also

if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

No heat

Magnatron is suspect. Need to put a voltmeter and see if the input (primary) side to the high-voltage transformer (big heavy iron thing in there) is getting 120Vac. Don't touch the other (high voltage) side of this transformer. If the power is there, you are looking at replacing the magnatron. Its affordable if you do it yourself - buy the part on EBAY - lookup "universal magnatron"

Everything works...Except for actually heating the food

It has a bad magnetron. This is the tube that provides the microwaves to heat the food. Not too easy to replace yourself but it can be done. Cost of magnetron is probably less than $50 or $60.

No heat

The most likely causes are defective a door switch (or switch mount), a bad connection in the high voltage section, or on the controller. I would direct you to my safety text file and door switch text file for critical safety info anf info on testing & replacing door switches. You can find it via searching on Yahoo.com (not Google) for: microwave safety.txt After you check that out, please repost so we can hel you further.
