Question about GE JE1590 Convection / Microwave Oven
Should you replace a microwave oven even though it is working okay
Well, there is the old saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it".
But if there are specific concerns, you of course want to do the safe thing and take are of it.
But since it's that old, I would probably not have it fixed.
I would think it would be more economical to instead replace it.
That's my two cents, based upon the circumstances I see.

simple safety test.
Place 1/2 litre of water in a glass container. Measure the temperature of the water.
Place in microwave and heat on full power for 1minute.
Measure the temperature after it has stood for 1minute.
If the temperature difference is more than 9 degrees Celcuis the magnetron is working and producing about 700Watts of heat.
If your microwave is labelled with 900 or 1000Watts. That is about right.
If the temperature is less then the magnetron is not working properly and may need replacing.
This a only a rough guide and any doubts you should consult an authorised service agent.
