Question about Microwave Ovens
The oven turns on, but makes a louder than normal noise and no heat.
This is very likely a faulty Magnetron especially as there is not heat. To repair this would mean replacing the Magnetron which is a fairly standard repair for a Microwave oven

either the h.v. diode or the h.v. capacitor are open and replaced they build the hi voltage needed by the magnetron tube assembly

the unit that creates the microwaves called the "magnetron" has gone bad, or the circuits powering the magnetron have gone bad. there really isnt a cheap way to fix it, and not a undangerous way to fix it yourself. if your really like the microwave and dont want to part with it, you can try finding a repair shop that will fix microwaves, but they will probably tell you it would be cheaper to buy a new one. sorry

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.
