GE Spacemaker XL1800 first no inside light followed by loud noise

Started with no inside light. A few weeks later, a loud noise when running but had to shutoff since it smelled like electrical burning.

    The inside light is likely just a burned out bulb unrelated to your current problem.

    When you try to cook, you get that loud noise. Does it still heat?

    Does it sound like a loud hum or more like gurgling or grinding?

    Is the inside (especially the cover in the ceiling) clean?

    Please reply back with your model number so we can help you.

I agree that the light is unrelated. 99.9% chance you have a bad magnetron tube but it is covered by either a 5 or 10 year parts warranty through GE. Call GE Factory Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule online at www.geappliances.com

It sounds like a bad filter capacitor on the circuit board, which we repair often, and possibly a bad door switch.

We would need to know you full model number from the tag in or on the unit.

FixYa does not currently notify us experts when someone replies to help requests, so you would need to post a new help request with the same info you did, but include your full model number.

You either have a bad magnetron tube (5 or 10 year parts warranty item through GE Factory Service 1-800-432-2737 or www.geappliances.com) or a shorted high voltage rectifier. I think the light being out is a secondary problem.

It sounds like your magnetron has failed.

I would put a cup or so of water in it and heat it for about 3 minutes.

Then check inside and see if you smell any electrical burning or other smell.

You should have a 5-year warranty on the magnetron.

G.E. Spacemaker XL1800- Loud constant buzzing noise. Help


My microwave was totally dead. Things I discovered: 1) There is an easily replacable fuse accessed by taking off the top front vent cover (two screws on top, gently massage off) and then the inside plastic grill. UNPLUG before doing this! 2) Pop off two wires on either end of fuse holder for safety. Then pop out fuse and replace. For more extensive help, there is an evelope with a wiring diagram inside the case on the inside wall! Very helpful when diagnosing the surface lamp problem (I forgot to plug the ballast back in when I closed up the bottom).
