Question about GE JVM1653 Microwave Oven
The microwave seems to be working fine, but when we check the food...still cold. I have checked the power level, but still not luck.
If the fan is running and the light is on, indicating that there is power to the unit, then there are only 2 likely reasons for this. Either the controller that decides what power to put through has failed, or the magnatron (the thing that creates microwave energy) has failed. SOMETIMES, there is an internal fuse that will blow, but still allow the light to come on and the table to turn etc, My current microwave came from my local dump and when I examined it, there was a spade connector loose on one of the components, I put it back in place and it still works 7 years later. You could take the back off and take a look, but frankly, I would think it unlikely you are going to sort this out. If you do decide to try, the usual rules apply, be sure you can see how it comes apart, work on it UNPLUGGED from the power and make sure that if you put it back together and test it you are happy that you have reassembled it correctly. You really don't want it microwaving YOU instead of your food
