Sometimes folks will actually run the microwave empty (which is very dangerous) when they actually mean to just use the timer.


You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here. It may come in handy in the future.


There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating

components.

When this error occurs, the magnetron gets too hot because there's no load, and its protective thermal cutout (MGT TCO) will open, interrupting all power.


Then when it cools to a safe level, the oven will work again.


Sometimes the TCO fails and has to be replaced, and sometimes the magnetron gets damaged from the heat depsite the protection of the TCO.


If the MGT TCO is okay, also check the fuse, and the oven cavity TCO.


Accessing the oven cavity thermostat for testing and possible replacement will require you to remove the oven from the wall and take off the outer cover.

If so, the installation instructions are very handy, and it's best to have two people since the microwave can be heavy and awkward.

Sounds like the problem is in the high voltage. Most common would be magnatron, capacitor and diode. For safety reasons this should be checked by a professional. Look in your owners manual because some high voltage parts have a longer warranty than 1 yr.

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

Essentially you remove the vent grille held on by screws and/or clips then you'll see a screw at the top of the control panel.

Then the control panel should either lift up and out or forward and down.

The fuse is normally near the door switches, on the floor behind the controls, or on a metal plate near the transformer or fan.

There should also be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel. It's very helpful when troubleshooting.

The actual model number is like JVM1460. XL1400 is just a "line" and won't help in finding parts.

The first thing I would suggest is a hard reset. Unplug the unit for a minute or so. Then plug it back in, set the clock and try again.

You can download GE owner's manuals and installation instructions here.

You have a blown actuator. This is the device that creates the microwaves that cook the food. The cost of one of these will be as much as a new unit.

Microwave will not heat


The problem is the magnetron, "heart of the microwave oven" or the inverter board if 7 years old or less.

Where is the fuse in under-counter miccrowave?


remove the vent grill at the top, may have to slide to left after screws are removed. then you will see a screw holding the control panel, remove. then slide the panel up slightly and the panel should come off. behind the panel you fine a 20 amp 250 vac glass type fuse. remove and replace. if your MW works cool,,,,, if it does not you may need to call for service.

Although all systems seem to function,(fans lights clock,grill etc.) it does not heat on the MW mode. My wife turned it on thinking it was full when it was empty and heard a Sparking sound. Model WM...


If there is no heat but all other functions work, then the magnatron is likely faulty. The magnatorn provides the heat. You can get one at repairclinic.com or partselect.com

No heating, turntable does not turn, but clock & lights work.


Check to make sure the plastic on the shelve holders or tuntable guide did not wear and expose metal. If these holders or brackets are wore and exposed metal it shorted out your micro wave. They need to be replaced and a fuse needs to be replaced inside the control panel,

Seems like microwave is locked on clock


You have to set a time (any time) to use.

Press CLOCK, press number 2 then 2 then 2 again and then press CLOCK again. Does it say 2:22?

Everything should now work.

Do not run Empty, do not use any metal in there and do not use alot (MW kills all the vitamins and nutrition in food - like eating MUD for your body) .... and don't forget to reset the CLOCK ;-)
