SOURCE: Microwave will turn on but not heat

Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch.

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.

The microwave door switch broke and we are unable to open it. The inside plate continued to move very slowly around until we located and turned off the fuse. What should we do?


Honestly? Microwaves are not tremendously expensive, and they are dangerous if repaired improperly. You can get a service person to look at it, but I wouldn't unless they offered free estimates. If they can do it inexpensively, go that route. Otherwise replace the microwave. This is not a project for DIY if you have no experience in this area.

GE Microwave Model JKP85 Plate does not rotate


Usually this is a bad turntable drive motor in the floor of the microwave but the only way to know for sure is to do some electrical testing with a volt/ohm meter and the wiring diagram located within the appliance.
