Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So everything sounds and looks like it's working, it just won't heat?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
That's right. the keypad works, you can hear the fan but it does not heat anything.
Expert:  Tyler Z. replied 6 years ago.
ok then that means your magnetron has likely gone bad and will need to be ordered and replaced unfortunately. The magnetron is the part that actually produces the microwaves and it costs about $150 normally so it's not always worth replacing, but that all depends on the cost of the microwave originally and what condition it's in now.
