I would check the area around the ceiling of the microwave. There may be grease of other food buildup on the waveguide cover, which can be cleaned. Or the stirrer may be sticking or arcing, which would need to be replaced. This unit may be subject to post-manufacturing modifications, requiring a few new parts. You might check on this with GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET). If they cover the cost of parts, great. If not, you can get them cheaper here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 Feel free to see my site for my safety & disassembly files.

Have ge profile spacesaver xl sensor. will not heat strange buzzing sound and burning smell. clock, light, vent still work


This is most likely a defective magnetron, especially with the burning smell. There are two other parts that can be a problem, the high voltage capacitor and diode, all three work together to heat food. If the magnetron is the culprit, probably cheaper to replace the microwave oven.

GE Spacesaver 1800 XL - rattling sound


Hi jnflanders,
You've probably solved this by now, but I'll answer just in case. That part is called the stirrer motor. You can replace it yourself, as long as you have an offset phillip's head screwdriver handy.
Before you order the replacement part, figure out if your stirrer is driven by a d-shaped or a square shaft. You can tell by taking off the round plate on the inside top wall of the microwave. GE makes stirrer motors for both d-shaped and square shafts, so you'll have to get the right one. Here's the d-shaped motor that fixed this problem with my microwave: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=2024961.
Good luck!

GE XL 1800 quit heating


I don't like to pass on your problem but it sounds very much like either the high voltage supply ot the magnetron has bit the dust.
Either one would make the repair marginal at best.

This is apparently not a very good unit, many microwaves jsut kind of fade away as their magnetron emissions decay.

This one seems to have a bad rep. look at this link:
