If the unit isn't heating but it still all runs, either your magnetron has failed or the unit is in demo mode. Let's try to exit demo mode in case it's in demo mode. To do this, press Clock and Settings 6 times until oP-6 appears on the screen. Then press Start to change the demo mode to on or oFF. Try the microwave again once you have set it to oFF and if it still won't heat, you'd need a new magnetron because it has failed I'm sorry to say.

You did not help at all. It is not in demo mode and it was great before it went into lock mode. It does not nee a magnetron it is new. I want a refund!
