Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
No heat at all
If the microwave operates normally, but does not heath at all, then it can be the high voltage capacitor,
the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.
The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.
All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.
Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.
Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.
Regarding parts, your model number did not return any result, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).
