Question about GE JE1640WA/GA Microwave Oven
The unit is approx 7 years old. The other day it stopped heating. It runs but does not make the same 'pitch' when turned on. It also makes a smell like electronic burning. Time for a new unit?
This is going to be either the high-voltage transformer, the magnetron, or the high-voltage diode. Magnetrons are the mosty common failure in these, and there is a campaign underway to replace "underperforming" magnetrons.
