On a GE...with a louder than normal hum and not heating...most likely the mag, but could also be a shorted H.V. diode. Most of the time on those it's the mag, but you better have the diode replaced also even if it seems ok. Most GE's have 10yr warranty on the mag. If you don't know what you're doing leave servicing the high voltage circuit to the pros. Wouldn't want you to have a "shocking experience" or take the risk of exposing yourself/family to any radiation leaks.

Mmmm it's so easy,
First disconect the power, take the cover off, moslitly there would be 5 screws and two tab's on the top.
inside on the right hand side the magnetron it's a sylver box measuring about 4 in x 4 in x 5 in. It will have a plasic cover moslitly that would have to be remove first then on the magnetron there is 4 crews and one connector.
It should fall downard after.
If you have a power supply after the secondary , that may also be your problem.

1.Check power outlet for working.
2.If it is than you have broken fuse inside the m/w.
3. To change the fuse you have to disconnect the power to m/w, take the upper grill off, take the screw on top of control panel, lift the control panel up and removed. The 20 Am fuse located behind this panel.

I have a GE Over the oven microwave Model JVM1660BB. When heating it had started making a low humming noise. I could open the door and then close it, and the noise stopped. Now the oven won't heat at all. the light comes and the fan works. Jimbo
