Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
GE spacemaker XL1800 Mircowave will not heat, Everything else works, Turntable, lights, vent, timer, all but the heating.is ther an internal breaker or fuse that can go bad?
With the symptoms you
have, I would most strongly suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier
diode or a bad magnetron.
The diode is a fairly cheap fix, and the mag will cost more.
If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.
There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
