SOURCE: Whirlpool GH7155XKQ, everything works except it is not heating.

With the symptoms you have, I would most strongly suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad magnetron.

The diode is a fairly cheap fix, and the mag will cost more.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

If you don't find your mini-manual, or if you want to look at it before removing the controller, you can download it here (just enter your model number).

Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:

(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Not heating


Usually one of three things and not in any order:

The diode commonly used in most microwaves= it cannot be shorted and work.

The inverter board which powers the Magnetron.

The magnetron itself which does the work and can only be tested for sure by replacing.

The microwave isn't heating/cooking on any setting but the turntable, light is working. What should I check before calling a repairman?


There is nothing more you can do, you have verified everything is working except it is not heating the food. The next step is have the repairman come in to isolate the cause.

Microwave model MV-1510M is not heating, also sounds louder. Everything else is working, fan, lights, turntable etc..


If everything is working normally, except for heating, the likely cause is the magnetron.  Microwaves can be dangerous to work on, as the site below points out.  If you have an ohmmeter, it is possible to check the magnetron, but be certain to follow the precautions outlined at the webpage:

It does everything except heatinig up food. Model # JVM 3660 SD 001


The magnetron is not working. This open it and check to see if it has a blown fuse. Some microwave would have seperate fuse for the heating power. If fuse is good. You may be able to get a used magnetron from another microwave. Somtimes pawn shops would sell microwave for 5 or ten dollars just because it doesnt have a turnplate inside.

Microwave stopped heating up the food. Everything works except for the heating mechanism.


Check the door safety interlock switches. Remove the cover to find these small micro switches on the side away from the hinges.

Everything appears to work fine but it is not heating anymore.


If the microwave oven appears to be working but it is not heating the food, it is very possible that the magnetron, or its power supply has failed.
