Does the microwave do anything is there any power to it on the display or tell me what it does or does not do.

It comes on with lights, timer & sound as if working but not heating. The turntable isn't working either. There is a flashing keypad icon on the lower side that wasn't noticed before.
Appliance Technician: Appliance Guru, Owner and Technician replied 8 months ago

Normally that issue is caused by the lower door switch on the interlock circuit. When that switch goes bad the unit will work, fan will blow, but you will not get any heat. Here is a link to a new microswitch. You would have to take the unit apart to get to the switch and change it out. There are 3 switches you want to change out the lowest one or check it and see as that would be the most likley issue if the turntable is not working and the unit is not heating.
