Question about General Electric Microwave Oven
My GE model JEB31BF001 microwave acts normally in every way except it is not heating. I checked the main 15A fuse,and both door interlock switches with no problems found there. The HV diode is showing an open circuit. Would this keep my microwave from heating? Thanks for any help given, Craig
If the microwave operates normally, but does not heath at all, then it can be the high voltage capacitor,
the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.
The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.
All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.
Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.
Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.
Regarding parts, your model number did not return any result, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).
