In this case I would suspect a bad high-voltage recitifer diode or magnetron (due to the louder sound) but...

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and

I have a Maytag mmv4205baw Microwave oven. It

the unit that creates the microwaves called the "magnetron" has gone bad, or the circuits powering the magnetron have gone bad. there really isnt a cheap way to fix it, and not a undangerous way to fix it yourself. if your really like the microwave and dont want to part with it, you can try finding a repair shop that will fix microwaves, but they will probably tell you it would be cheaper to buy a new one. sorry

Power on Turn,Turn Table Moves,but don't heat

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptoms ("no heat"), as well as the answers to these questions:

- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.

A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.

Noise while not running

don;t worry;
all you need to do is lubricate the fan bearings with light machine oil and make sure the fan is not hitting anything

Won't heat

Do the inside light and turntable come on when you try to cook?

Is it making any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

Do you have the model number?
