Question about GE JVM1440 Microwave Oven
I'm trying to troubleshoot this problem so I can repair the microwave myself. I bought it used, it looks new and still had the shipping plastic on the front cover. The clock,lite and fan all work okay. As normal microwave functions take place it sounds normal but it has a burning smell and does not heat the cup of water. No signs of fire yet, just smell.
GE Spacemaker Microwave Model # JVM1440BH01
If it buzzes real loud it's probably the high volyage diode. However some times if it smells it's the transformer. Usually the diode is a cheap fix ~$10.00 but this model the diode is $50. It's number 50 on the link below. Let me know how it works out or you need anything else.
