    GE Profile Spacemaker  microwave does not heat up and has a burning smell. Lights turn on and turn table works.  Model number is JVM 1660WB005

    With the exception of the burning smell, I am experiencing the same problem. Everything else is working fine; however, it does not heat.

    I have the same problem. Everything works, but no heating and there is a burning smell like a wire or something. I understand from other posts that this is about a $350-$400 repair.



    What is a comparable replacement for this unit?

It was probably the Magnatron tube that went out , they are normally replaced only under warr. due to the cost to repair , the part is roughly 200.00 and labor ranges from 100-200. I guess it all depends on what it is worth to you , you can pick a decent brand new one up for about 200. Hope that helped you out. Phil

Why does my ge profile spacemaker not heat up


There maybe so many factors. How old is your microwave. From your description, I believe you may have to change your Magnetron. Maybe the magnet is cracked.

My GE profile spacemaker microwave has suddenly quit heating. Would this be the magnetron? If so, my husband is pretty handy, is it difficult to change out?


It's not difficult, but on a GE, there can be a lot of screws to remove!

And some models have a 5-9 year warranty and GE will send you one free.

We may have the service manual which you can download free.

It depends of course, on the model number.

Feel free to contact me directly (and please remind me of your full model number from the tag on the unit) for more free information & help.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Everything works except heat


this is something you should probably call a repair technician for, due to the danger of the componentry.

Usually in ther case of this problem, even a technician will advise you to replace the unit, in the minds of cost effectiveness and safety...
