Please remove the cabinet and check the door safety interlock switches. Micro switches near the door latch assembly are #1 to failure because we open the door to check whats cooking while the machine is running. The tiny contacts arc and eventually burn. Then they are not able to tell the oven the door is closed, the magnetron is not turned on ... no magnetron ... no heat. Get replacemente at electronics parts store near you or from a FixYa.com advertiser.

How do I get the heat to work?


Hi Marc, there is no 'heat' per say with microwave ovens as one would find in a convection oven. Microwave ovens operate by generating electromagnetic fields (within the microwave band) that causes water molecules in the food item to vibrate/rotate creating friction/heat - within the food item as opposed to the surrounding space (this would be convection)

Oster microwave OM1101NOE wont heat carosel turns light is on time runs but not heat


There are three things to consider, the magnetron "heats food" high voltage diode "sometimes cracks" and the high voltage capacitor "sometimes shorts" one or more can cause the symptom of no heat. I recommend a professional to assess.

My Oster microwave (model #OGG21401) doesn't heat. When operating the light will turn on and the carousel will turn but food will not get hot. Can you provide a solution to my problem? Thank you.


Check the door safety interlock switches for proper operation. #1 trouble with microwaves that operate in all respects but no heat.

It is likely the magnetron is defective, "heats food" the cost to repair will approach a new microwave oven.

Everything appears to work. but the food does not heat up


The lack of heat would mean a failure in the magnetron circuit. It is the part that generates microwaves that heats the food. If it is making a loud buzzing noise when you operate the oven, it usually means that the magnetron has failed. It can cost as much as a new oven to repair, so it not worth fixing.
