can you get me model# XXXXX are allot of reasons this doesn't heat. it could be anything from a door switch to a magnetron, microwaves are very complex and dangerous machines to repair. the high voltage capacitor can store lethal amounts of voltage even when unplugged, please if you have no electrical experience do not attempt major repair,with that said please let me know if you would like to go further. thanks Bryan
