Bad diode or inverter board or magnetron itself---diode fails first and inverter is power board for magnetron which does the heating.

If you look at consumer affairs.com, there are many problems like this with GE microwaves. Not a good track record, experiencing problems with mine as well.

SOURCE: Microwave turns on, but no heat or turntable movement

The problem is that the magnatron is not getting power. Chance is that if could be a bolwn fuse inside the unit. If the fuse don't fix it then that leaves the charging diode, capacitor or the magnatron, or high voltage xformer of which without technical epertize I would not recomend attempting to replace. good luck

SOURCE: I have a Hamilton Beach

Assuming its the same as my Hamilton Beach, you first enter the cooking time, but don't press start yet, instead press power, then a number button 1 - 9 for the power level 1 for 10%, 2 for 20% etc. THEN press start as normal

SOURCE: microwave just stopped cooking!

there could be two problems with your microwave. your diode could be bad or your magnetron is no good. Its definitely one of the 2. most likely the magnetron. if the microwave is more than 5 years old, and it is the magnetron i would suggest that you replace the microwave. if you would like instructions on how to change the magnetron or diode let me know and i'll walk you thru it. although i do recommend u let a professional take a look at it.

My microwave keeps coming off track


The glass turntable can be vague about seating correctly on the drive spindle. You can position it approximately and rotate it slightly until it seats.

How can I get my microwave to actually heat when everything else (cook time, power level, clock, etc., are set and seem to be running?


Sounds like the MW Emitter is not working or the wave guide is disconnected. If it is the wave guide then you can fix it yourself if you take the rear cover off. It is the pipe, which in cross section is quite rectangle shaped with rounded corners. It should be connected to the emitter at one end and the opaque guide cover at the other with no breaks. If the emitter is faulty then seek professional help.

Please post a new help request here on FixYa and include the full model number from the tag in the cooking cavity or elsewhere on the microwave, such as the door frame, controller frame, etc. and please answer the questions below.
When you hit "Start" to microwave, do the inside light, cooling fan, and turntable all come on?

Any unusual noises? Is it louder or quieter than usual?

We have a sound clip of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are operating here
