Recently, while trying to heat up food inside my microwave the fan has run, but the food inside the microwave has not warmed up. However, occasionally the microwave does work and the food warms. There hasn't been any pops, crackles, marking inside the microwave. This 19 year old microwave is in built in cabinets and I would rather not replace both the microwave and oven, but will if that is the best approach. Can you give me some advice? Thanks.

** occasionally the microwave does work **

I don't usually recommend consumers service microwave ovens them self as components can hold a charge even when unplugged.

Intermittent problems are also the hardest to pinpoint and would have to be tested for at the time of failure. That makes it hard to call a technician in for. Unless you're capable of isolating the cause yourself one option might be to use the unit until the problem is consistent then look into having it repaired or replacing it.

BTW. Finding close replacements for older built-in models can also sometimes be difficult. You might want to start shopping now to at least get an idea how easy (or difficult) it is going to be to replace if necessary. The 'cutout' dimensions (see the following link) are usually most critical.
