does it make any noise when you use microwave ? there are several reasons why it wont heat. it could be a bad door switch, or magnitron, or the transformer is bad, along with a host of other reasons. let me know if it makes any strange noise like a loud buzzing when you try to run it. thanks Bryan

you may have a bad magnetron. these machines are very dangerous to work on, the capacitor stores lethal amounts of voltage even when unplugged, I recommend calling for service on this. unless you are experienced with high voltage and know what your doing thats the safest thing to do. thanks Bryan
