Thanks for using this service. Please be logged in to rate my assistance when we are done. Rating 3-5 is good, but 1-2 is bad so talk with me first.

You likely have a bad magnetron tube. If the unit all runs fine and just does not heat that is the most likely reason it is not heating. The magnetron tube costs about $125-150 for the part so you may not want to repair it due to costs. This is a very common issue that happens.
