Question about GE JE1540 Microwave Oven
This is usually an indication that the magnetron has gone bad, or something in the high voltage network controls the magnetron. Any one of the following components could be at fault: 1. Magnetron 2. High Voltage Transformer 3. High Voltage Diode 4. Magnetron Thermal Cut-out 5. High Voltage Capacitor 6. Interconnecting wiring I do not advocate taking any voltage measurements inside the High Voltage section of a microwave since the voltages can be as much as 14,000 volts or higher. If you are savvy enough to attempt yourself, WITH THE MICROWAVE UNPLUGGED, you will need to disassemble the unit to get to the high voltage section and take resistance readings. The magnetron or diode are likely suspects. If the magnetron or the transformer are bad, the repair costs can meet or exceed the price of the oven. Let me know if you need further assistance.
