Question about Microwave Ovens
We have visably inspected the magnatron, and it doesn't have any visible burns, etc.
The magnetron can look perfect but it or the inverter (power board) and a large diode often used usually cause this--all will look ok.....

SOURCE: Microwave works intermittently
This is most commonly due to a failing door switch or door switch mount. But it may also be a bad connection or bad relay on the control board, which we repair nationwide for $39.95. Also, it could be a loose connection at the magnetron. If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info (as well as a text file which helps in diagnosing and repairing door switch problems) at our site, which is linked at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk You can find helpful exploded view diagrams for similar models here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383 You can order parts at http://www.wehaveparts.com

SOURCE: intermittant heating
You probably have a new unit by now. The Magnetron part inside usually is the problem with this Maytag unit.I have had this unit blow the 'Magnetron' four times ! Everything else works fine. After watching the technician, I replaced it myself the other 3 times. The whole unit has to come out of the wall to do this. This High Voltage part is dangerous. The part costs about $100.00 from an online parts store. Partselect.com- or someone else.

On GE models, "SENSOR ERROR" appears on the display when:
The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.
If that doesn't work, leave it unplugged for maybe an hour. Then let us know if the hard reset does not fix it.

Microwave Oven Basic Troubleshooting Tips
Posted on Aug 07, 2010
First you need to make sure that all "normally open" door switches are closing when you close the door. Next would be the diode. That is a little black thing that runs from one of the capacitor terminals to the chassis. You should have continuity one way, but NO continuity when you reverse test it. It is like an electrical check valve so to speak. If that shows open both ways, or continuity both ways, replace it and you should have fixed your microwave oven. Of course there are a lot of other ways your oven does not work. Get back to me if you need more help.
