No heat 6 year old microwave just stopped heating-- everything else on it runs (i.e. lights, turntable, whirring noise) but the food does not heat at all no matter what heating method you use (manual, sensor, etc...) any ideas??

    MVH230E/01 Lights work, whirring happens, turntable does not go around. Touch buttons squeek, nothing happens.



    At times when we opened the door it would stir whir and not stop until the time was up. Still no heat action.



    How I love my machine, to have a fella come out is $60 up front. What to do?

The most common causes are a bad door switch, a loose connection at the magnetron terminal, a bad magnetron, a bad high voltage diode, a bad connection on the control panel, or a bad relay on the control panel. 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 Or call 877-477-7278 M-F 10am - 9pm Eastern time.

Buzzing sound... Turntable stopped. food heats up but uneven. No microwave fan when heating.. no light inside expensive fix?? Unit is 10 years old

If the microwave oven is 10 years old then it is time to consider a new unit, by your description it is going into cascade failure where different parts have stopped working, the buzzing sound is the magnetron warning you, it is about to fail. The fans job is to keep the magnetron cool while it is running.

Less than 5 years old - Microwave Panel lights up, turntable turns, fan works - everything works except it doesn't heat food. Heard a pop, and now it runs louder than before but doesn't heat. Any ideas?

That pop was the magnetron frying. This is a repairable problem, but feirly expensive, around $300 if you have it done by a professional.

Please rate my response if it was helpful to you.

Thanks, Repairman45.

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
