It is repairable, the problem is the magnetron needs to be replced ( an element that emits the micro waves ) but will need to be checked to make sure its not the capacitor that starts it or the circut that controls it.
repair shops vary so ask them about how much they would charge to replace the magnetron then you will be able to tell who will end up charging you the most and who would be cheeper(aprox $50-$75 plus parts

GE Sensor Microwave Oven made in 2008 doesn't heat up food


If you do not have any electrical / electronic repair experience I suggest replacing your microwave oven. The cost for repair might be excessive depending upon where you live and you might find a newer microwave oven with features that you like which were not on your older model. The prices of microwave ovens have become lower in recent years and that almost makes microwave ovens "throw away" devices. It has happened to radios, televisions, etc. I used to be in the repair business and the throw away stuff pretty much ended my business.

We have a 10 year old GE microwave model JE 1860 and it turns on bit is loud and doesn't 't heat up wondering if it is worth repair or should we just replace it??


Carol, where I live the parts for what could be the possible problem and the labor cost for the repair would probably equal about 2/3 to 3/4 of the cost of a new microwave. Most dealers that I deal with in my area tell me that the average life span of a microwave is 5-7 years. Considering the age and what it might cost it might be better to invest in a new microwave. Hope this helps.

My smeg microwave will not heat the food ...... possible causes


If everything else is working but it won't heat the food, the causes are the magnetron "common failure" or the high voltage capacitor and diode can be a factor, the three work together to heat the food. Depending on the nature of repair it can be close to the cost of a new microwave oven.

Fme24x not heating and burning smell with loud noise


Those are classic symptoms of a bad magnetron tube, the microwave source. It is possible to replace the part, but usually not worth it. The magnetron is expensive and you should let a professional do the repair. There are lethal voltages under the cover and the chance of microwave leakage if the repairs aren't done correctly. Between the part cost and labor charge, it's usually not much more expensive (sometimes even less!) to buy a new oven.

SMEG SA35MX no longer heating. Light, fan & timer all still working but no heat. Approx 2 years old. Is there a fuse or other component I can replace myself ?


In all likelihood the mangnetron has failed, or perhaps even the Power Supply. or a fault that is shutting the system 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.

Does not heat food.


Dont have many smegs where i am, but smeg is a decent unit, so i would think if there is no heat, look for a reset button (over temp. protection). possibly located at the back where the elements are wired.

Hi,

To know all about magnetron....How much would be the cost and how you would make sure ...Follow the below steps :-

http://www.partselect.com/repair.aspx?appliance=microwave&part=test-magnetron

Hope i helped you.

Smeg Microwave SA-971C2


the door protection circuit needs attention, the door catches operate microswitches, but there is also a third which is a crowbar microswitch. if all three do not operate in the correct sequence then the safety switch or fuse will go.
