Question about GE JE620 Microwave Oven
The connections were melted to the top of the thermostat. I replaced the thermostat. Now it works, but does not heat. Could it be the Magnetron?
Possibly, but I would first suspect the connector that goes to the thermostat, since you say it melted.
You should cut back both wires an inch or so until you get bright shiny copper (not dull or pinkish color).
Then install new connectors. They're usually standard 3/16" or 1/4" crimp-on fast-on type connectors. You should be able to get connector from places like Walmart, Radio Shack or an automotive store.
There's a YouTube video (not mine) showing how to crimp connectors here.

Sadly popcorn kills more microwave ovens than peiple imagine. You can get an estimate on a repair but I believe you will probably decide in the end to replace it. Same exact thing happened to me............expensive popcorn!!
