That's probably a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad magnetron.

It should have a nine-year warranty on the magnetron.

Here are some links you or someone you know can use (in order given) for test help, but read the safety warnings first:

http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/diode.html (if it is NOT shorted, it's probably fine)
http://www.gallawa.com/microtech/mag_test.html

There should also be a "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting & testing.

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

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

GE may send you a replacement magnetron. Or you can contact them to find the GE-authorized servicer. GE Customer Service is here.

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

Sorry I can't help you but we purchased this same model 11 months ago and ours just stopped heating this week. Sure expected it to last longer than this.

GE over the range micro JVM 1870 loud humming noise


When I read your post a shiver went down my spine... literally... You MUST be so careful working on/in Microwaves, you see they can be LETHAL...More service personnel, are killed each year servicing MW's, than any other, single piece of equipment. You see there is a BIG Capacitor inside This has enough energy, Joules, EVEN WHEN DISCONNECTED FROM THE MAINS. To KILL YOU. This must be discharged with a "Shorting Stick" BEFORE you touch anything else inside. Just touching anything connected to that Capacitor WILL SHOCK YOU. Obviously you haven't so please be careful. Anyway I have done my "Duty, and told you. What you do now, is up to you.

Works but no heat


Possibly a blown fuse inside, or a defective magnatron. If you decide to open the unit, please unplug it first!

No heat


COINCIDENCE? Yes... :) So go buy another one, it'd probably be cheaper than getting the bad one repaired.

Mwave made loud buzzing noise then didn't heat up anymore


When there's a loud buzz like that, it does not heat, and does not blow the fuse, it is usually a defective magnetron. Did it sound something like someone making a "gurgling" sound into a coffee cup? I think this has a a one-year warranty, with n five-year warranty covering the magnetron.
