Question about GE JVM1651 Microwave Oven
Everything is working, the fan, lights, clock, etc. The microwave appears like it is working but it is not heating and making a burning smell. It also has a higher pitch sound. Any ideas on how to fix. It is 9 years old.
I had the exact same problem on my GE JVM1651. I called an appliance service professional and he diagnosed the issue with the Magnetron tube (the unit that actually produces the microwave). The only solution is to replace the magnetron. I'm not qualified to provide steps on how to replace the part - the service guy's taking care of this for me. I'm still waiting on him to source the part and complete the repair.
Hope this helps!!

Fisrt, check to be sure your missing cat it not inside the unit. IF the interior is dirty (splatters, grease, etc.) , it may inhibit the unit from working properly.
