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

Does everything else look and sound like it's working? It just doesn't heat the food?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
exactly, everything works but nothing heats up
ok then that generally means that your magnetron has failed and will need to be replaced. The magnetron is the part that actually produces the microwave to heat the food and often the magnetron will go out with no warning at all. The part is about $150 normally so depending on the condition and age of your microwave it may be better to replace the microwave rather than repairing it.
