Since it's less than one year old, it should be fully covered under warranty. I'd suggest contacting the manufacturer to get it fixed free.

You can contact Sharp at 1-800-BE-SHARP (1-800-237-4277) or visit them online.

I would suspect you have a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or bad magnetron.

If it is out of warranty, please write back so we can help you with that situation.

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

WHEN I TURN ON MICROWAVE OVEN LIGHT COMES ON POWER TO TURNTABLE B UT NO HEAT IN OVEN?


Most likely either the magnetron is bad or a bad diode. Does the unit sound louder than normal? Buzzing?

The keypad works; the microwave can be turned on and turntable turns round, the light is on, the motor sounds (a little louder than normal) but no heat can be generated. What could be causing this?


No heat would mean the magnetron circuit has failed. It's the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. If it is making a loud buzzing noise, it could mean that the magnetron or the high voltage diode has failed. Since there exists high voltages inside the oven, would require a qualified service person to repair. However, if the magnetron has failed, would recommend buying a new oven since the parts alone can cost as much as a new oven.

Won't heat and turntable doesn't turn


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even something in the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system mangnetron down, for safety reasons You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man. Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one.

The microwave does not heat..after reading everything about the magnetron my one question is this an easy job that an ammature can tackle or do I really need to call in a service man?


I'm having the same problem with my microwave -- GE JVM1533WD 002.
The inside light, cooling fan and turntable are all working but it is no longer heating food when the Start button is hit.
The unit is noticeably louder than normal, too.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance for your help.

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

Won't heat


Do the inside light and turntable come on when you try to cook?

Is it making any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

Do you have the model number?

Microwave oven does not heat anything. Clock, turntable, lights work. I turned the turntable off while the oven was cooking--heard a noise, now it doesn't heat anything.

GE JVM1440BD Won't Heat


If it making a louder than normal humming or grunting sound when operating, than it's a sure bet it's the MAG.
