Question about GE JE1540 Microwave Oven

Everything works except heat

I have a GE Profile Spacemaker microwave model JVM1650WB 002 purchased in 1999. The microwave works fine except the food or liquid does not heat when the microwave runs. Can anyone suggest how to fix this? Is it expensive to fix?

Sounds like you've had a failure in the microwave portion of the unit.

Microwave not heating problems when the timer/controller board appears to function properly, are related to the following components -

1) Diode
2) Capacitor
3) Transformer
4) Magnetron

    The components you mentioned Mark are correct, but you forgot the high voltage glass fuse, not the ceramic one on PCB.

I have a GE Spacemaker Over-The-Range Microwave Model #JVM1533WD002 that has worked perfectly for 10 years. Now everything still works, except it doesn't heat the food. Where is the fuse located and how...


A common symptom of a failed magnetron is a failure to heat with everything else (magnetron fan, stirrer, timer, etc.) working fine. Check the GE manufacture date for the unit on its nameplate to determine the age of the magnetron. For GE models of the past, magnetrons had a 10 year parts replacement warranty. Magnetrons can be expensive, so you need to weigh all your options, i.e., repair versus replacement, before you commit to one solution.

Probably a burned out magnatron. Repair costs approach and sometimes exceed the cost of a new one! Get a new one.
