    I have teh same problem.  January 23rd 2009, microwave stopped heating.  I tried everything.  My wife was cooking on the stove and turned the microwave vent fan on.  While the vent fan was running, the microwave heated the food... BIZARRE!!!  Now we can use the microwave if the vent fan is turned on.

    I have the same problem.  On January 23rd 2009, the microwave stopped heating food.  I tried everything.  My wife happened to be cooking on the stove at the time and happened to turn on microwave vent fan.  While the vent fan was running, I did another test.  This time the microwace heated the food... BIZARRE!!!!  Now to heat food, we have to turn the fan on first.

Sounds like the twt is bad (the traveling wave tube) that is quite expensive. Unfortunately your solution is probably to buy a new one.

GE Model # JVM7195SFSS microwave.


Check the internal ceramic fuse on the circuit board. Sometimes one section will work while another won't. I'm not sure if this model has a rear mounted thermal fuse, but the models with the inline thermal fuse will cause a similar issue.

Doen't heat food


More information will be needed to solve this issue. Does the keypad work? What about the interior light or the turntable? Check the internal fuse, and the door interlock switches.

Use a hair blow dryer to dry out the underside of the microwave. After you are convinced that it is dry you may operate it again.

That said, if it still is acting up read this:

When the microwave sounds okay, but there's no heat, one of the internal door switches, the high voltage circuitry, or the circuit board may have a problem. To resolve this problem, you need the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

It says demo mode and there is no heat, everything else works


Have you checked your manual to see how to get out of demo mode? Since it is still in demo mode, you won't be able to use it for anything else. If you don't have the manual, go to GE's website and download the manual there. Also, you can check their site for Support and look for troubleshooting.

GE XL 1800 quit heating


I don't like to pass on your problem but it sounds very much like either the high voltage supply ot the magnetron has bit the dust.
Either one would make the repair marginal at best.

This is apparently not a very good unit, many microwaves jsut kind of fade away as their magnetron emissions decay.

This one seems to have a bad rep. look at this link:

Sorry, have owned a lemon or two myself.
