Question about GE JVM1850 1000 Watts Microwave Oven
The microwave oven seems to be functioning perfectly in all ways. Electronics work, turntable and light both work but the food doesn't cook. Listening carefully, it sounds like a klixon or a safety overload clicks a second after the unit comes in. This makes me suspicious that either there is an electrical fault in the microwave generator of that a safety overload has worn out. I am trying to ascertain if it is LIKELY that this type of problem can be easily fixed for, say <$100.00 or if I am better off replacing the unit. Replacement cost is about $400.00.
Ok i have a simaler ? my jvm1850 in only like 4or5 years old and well when i open the door light comes on but no fan... when cooking light but no fan cooking or even movment from the turn table... all it does is mak this funny lil clicking sound (its has alwyas made sounds like 4 or 5 lil clicks) but cooking or even a humm please help love this thing and dont want to pay an arm and a leg for a new one

The magnetron is the device that puts out the heat. In these units, that's the most common cause of a failure to heat. BUT - many of these units are subject to a campaign under which GE will replace the magnetron, stirrer and high voltage diode free. Check the bulletin to see if yours is covered: http://www.microwavedisplay.com/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.jpg Even if yours is not covered by the bulletin, it may have coverage of the magnetron. If you have questions, call GE Customer Relations at 1-800-386-1215 (8-6 ET)
