Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven
Have a GE JVM 1440, the microwave runs but does not heat
With the symptoms you
have, I would most strongly suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier
diode or a bad magnetron, or a loose and possibly corroded connection on the magnetron's terminal.
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:

Please check if any fuse is blown inside the microwave. If the fuses are fine then the issue is with the door switch of the microwave, it may be faulty or may have loose connections. If the switch is faulty then you can get it replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
