Microwave will heat up water in a bowl but won't heat food. What could be the cause
ANSWER Greg, A microwave oven, either heats or doesn't heat, it has no way to distinguish between a bowl of water and aTV Dinner. You do want to check and make sure the turtable tray rotates, this helps distribute the waves through out the food product. You'll also need to check the stirrer blade W10250840 and DE71-60121A stirrer cover(in the top of the oven cavity). The blade pivots on a point in the center of the cover, and has to move freely in order to distribute the microwaves throughout the cavity, otherwise the beam will be directed straight down and will only heat the center of the food product.
