If turntable works suspect inverter (power) or Magnetron itself is bad.

Microwave won't heat food


9 out of 10 times if all else is working then it is the magnatron rod that does the heating chances are it will be more expensive than to purchase a new microwave.

That would be just a defective secondary interlock (bottom door switch) or its mount.

I have a GE JES831WB 001 microwave that I'd love to fix. The light, clock & timer are working, but that's all - no fan nor heating. Any suggestions?


The door switches are often a problem, one or two are probably defective which would cause the symptoms that you are describing.

Problem with the GE Spacemaker (JVM1640SJ) Microwave Oven GE Spacemaker XL1800 won't heat food anymore....It worked this morning, now won't heat. What should I do?


GE Will replace the magnetron for 9 years! Mine is a 2004 model with a one year warrently according to manual. HOWEVER they did say the magnatron was covered for nine years: call 888-239-6832. When I called they said thats all they get calls for and would send out in 3-5 days. NO CHARGE. I had to ask if there was coverage longer than a year on major parts and that's when they offered the info and I eventually was transferred to the right office. Saved $120 bucks on parts alone.

Microwave want heat any longer. Everthing else is


HI. in most cases, this will lead to a failed Heating device(magnetron tube).It would be wise to check the Magnetron cutoff fuse to be sure of its integrity. if the fuse is blown, simply replace it. if the fuse continues to show continuity, replace the magnetron.

(((The fuse is located inside the unit along side the magnetron)))
