Question about GE JVM1660 Microwave Oven
The microwave suddenly stopped heating. It is functioning normally in every way except it's unable to heat food and liquids, so it appears that it isn't producing micro-waves. It sounds like it goes into it's heating/resting phases, but doesn't heat at all.
Was it the magnetron. Ours just gave up the ghost(heat) yesterday.

This just happened to ours as well. Apparently the magnetron (device that creates radio waves that heat the food) is broken. I'm trying to pry the darn thing out of our kitchen now so I can replace the magnetron. Look for this part WB27X10489 on Google. I found it on ebay for $65. If it fixes the problem I'll post again.
