My microwave appears to be working. The table turns, the light is on, it makes noise, but no heat is being generated. Is this easy to fix? It is a 2006, is it under warranty?

Hard to say if it is an easy fix.

Here is the tech sheet
https://www.servicematters.com/docs/...%208205609.pdf

You say it makes noise but can you hear the magnetron turning on/off at a 50% heat setting? Usually is a slight buzz (not loud) or the unit sounds like it is bearing down. If yes then your magnetron is probably shot.

Could be one of the thermostats/cutoffs is open.
Remove the wire from one side of each of them and check them for continuity with a meter.

Looked up your unit on the Whirlpool website, says it only has one year warranty.
