any time a microwave runs but does not heat, the magnetron is bad and will have to replaced in order to repair it and it's a very dangerous repair because microwaves hold high voltage even when not connected to power. Unless you have experience dealing with high voltage and electronics I would not suggest you attempt this repair on your own. Also I am not sure what that model microwave costs but the repair will be a few hundred as the magnetron is prob 100.00 or so and then the diode was also need to be replaced at the same time which is around 30.00.

If you would like part numbers let me know and I will be glad to get them for you. Thanks.
