Question about GE JE1540 Microwave Oven
I have a JE1540WW01 build in Microwave from GE and it suddenly lost its heating function and giving out a bad odor. Can anyone help me narrow down to which part is bad. I have check the fuse on the wall it is fine, the power transformer is fine. But I am not sure if it is the Magnetron or the heat sensor on the magnetron? Why is there a bad "electric odor"? On the manual, it said that it must ensure the RF gasket is install properly, properly sounds too vague, do you guys know how to properly install the magnetron if I have to replace one? Thanks.
There should be 4 screws holding it in.. and one plastic connector with 2 wires in it that are plugged onto the mag..
the seal would be the gold colored mesh around the antenna of the mag. when you take the microwave down you would take the cover off and if looking at it from the back you would look towards the right side and there should be a thermostat there that may have started to burn up. if it is replace it and the wires.. the mag you just unscrew remove and install the new mag.
