You can possibly have a bad diode and or magnetron. When working on microwaves you have to be very cautious of what you are touching there is a capacitor inside that stores a voltage and can cause physical harm if not discharged.

Ge spacemaker microwave jvm1640cj03 stopped heating. interior always clean. light, timer etc working.


If it stops heating and the other parts of the oven still work, the problem is with the magnetron circuit. If it makes a loud buzzing noise when you try to heat the food, then the magnetron has shorted out. The replacement cost for the magnetron is almost as much as a new oven, so it does not make sense to have it fixed. Sorry.

Have ge profile spacesaver xl sensor. will not heat strange buzzing sound and burning smell. clock, light, vent still work


This is most likely a defective magnetron, especially with the burning smell. There are two other parts that can be a problem, the high voltage capacitor and diode, all three work together to heat food. If the magnetron is the culprit, probably cheaper to replace the microwave oven.

I have a GE profile spacemakeer JVM1860DB worked great until Saturday now when I do anything to it, it just buzzes and the microwave will not work did notice the lights are dim and the night light is dim...


The problem is more than likely a bad magnetron, especially when there is a loud buzzing sound and it is laboring. There are two additional parts that could be a factor, the high voltage capacitor and diode they work in conjunction with the magnetron to generate the high voltage to heat the food. To get it repaired professionally with parts and labor will be high.

Ge microwave jvm160wj01 was working and suddenly started buzzing, gave bad electric/burnt smell and buzzes. Still buzzes and does not seem to heat now.


Sounds like the magnetron just shorted out. Its the part the generates the microwaves that heat the food. Buzzing sounds are a symptom of a shorted mag. Usually not worth fixing since the magnetron costs almost as much as a new oven. Sorry.

Microwave not heating was fine then not?????


It could be an internal fuse, but these fuses are very high rated ( typically 5kv 8amp) and should be fitted by a qualified technician only.

Microwave Buzzing, Still Heats, but Turntable And Fan Not Working


This is not safe. If the fan is not running, the magnetron will quickly overheat and be destroyed. We answered this in more depth in the other place you asked it.
