The method to diagnose this is to first, check the door switches. Any one of them not functioning can cause this problem. If the door switches are all in working order, replace the magnatron, diode set, and capacitor.

SOURCE: microwave works but is not heating up food

can you hear the magnetron operate i.e. light dims,transformer has a louder hum,if so more than likely either the H.v. diode or H.V. capacitor is bad or worst case scenario the mag tube has failed.....costly

SOURCE: Problem with the GE Spacemaker (JVM1640SJ)

The magnetron is more than likely the problem, "heats food" cheaper in the long run to replace the microwave oven.

SOURCE: Everything turns on and appears

Since the magnetron is probably the problem and costs $139.96 plus shipping and tax from Sears are you sure you want to put that much into the repair? If so the part number is: WB27X10017

I have a Haier microwave and tonight after heating some food, I went to close the door and upon closing it, the carousel started turning and it won't shut off.


It sounds like one of the door switches has become defective, each must be disconnected on the one side and tested with a digital meter using the ohms scale.

Problem with the GE Spacemaker (JVM1640SJ) Microwave Oven GE Spacemaker XL1800 won't heat food anymore....It worked this morning, now won't heat. What should I do?


GE Will replace the magnetron for 9 years! Mine is a 2004 model with a one year warrently according to manual. HOWEVER they did say the magnatron was covered for nine years: call 888-239-6832. When I called they said thats all they get calls for and would send out in 3-5 days. NO CHARGE. I had to ask if there was coverage longer than a year on major parts and that's when they offered the info and I eventually was transferred to the right office. Saved $120 bucks on parts alone.
