Question about GE JE2160 Microwave Oven
I went to use the microwave last night and after it started, I heard aloud pop then the microwave is running louder. Now, the microwave does not heat. Everything appears to work fine, but no heat.
We put this brand new in our new home 2 1/2 years ago - any ideas ?
Sounds like the magnetron has failed. There are some high voltage circuits that feed the magnetron and you can potentially get hurt if you don't know what you are doing. Would recommend you have it serviced by a professional if you want it fixed, otherwise look for a new one since the cost of repair can come close to the price of a new microwave oven.
