Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If the microwave acts and looks like the unit is still heating but it's just not heating, that means that your magnetron has shorted out. The magnetron is the part that creates the microwaves to heat the food so if it's not heating, then the part will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue. The part is a $150 normaly so to replace the part you're looking at about $250 with parts trip and labor.
