Hi, I take it that this is a combi microwave? Some of these have settings on the front to microwave/grill/etc... so make sure its on the right one first!!
If you have selected the correct one then the m/wave does not work it could be several things!
Microwaves run to earth and need diodes to do this if these break down it will not m/wave! It could also be a internal fuse? ( but very unlikley if everything else works) Then you have the Mag or transformer which could be down to! M/waves run on a high power side and a low power side. The low power will not hurt you to much but the high power side will. My advice to uou is not to touch as it could be fatal as these things carry a high charge even when they are unplugged!

Hello, please use the chart to determine which stove you have. You will have
to look at the model number. The first 3 numbers will be the series on
the chart. In most cases an F1 error would require replacement of the
electronic control. This part is commonly refered to as an EOC or ERC.
However this type of repair is usually reserved for repair specialists.

This sounds like the stirrer. If it sticks or stops, the microwaves can damage or destroy it. You may have a bad stirrer or magnetron. There is an important bulletin that covers these problems. To see if yours is covered, see: http://220.127.116.11/mwd/ge_mw_mag_kit_bulletin.pdf If you need more help, please follow-up.

Remove the front panel by removing the screws located on the inside of the door (note hold door inplace, since it is heavy and will fall out after screws removed). Unscrew screws located on bottom of plastic retainer (2 each) Remove tension spring. Note 2 are included right and left. Note color of spring on end, different springs for different door types, stainless, black,beige or white. Replace all in reverse order.

hello Frank. Sorry to tell you that the magnetron is going bad and making that terrible noise. Since the inside of a microwave, even unplugged has up to 2000 residual and deadly volts of electricity I recommend either calling a pro or replacing the unit.
