Not heating


most likly it is the mag and the diode. it should be covered for ten years after you bought the unit so check into that. you will have to pay a ge authorize servicer to replace it though but parts should be covered and still cheaper than a new microwave

Microwave turntable doesn't turn. Everything else


The turntable system typically consists of the motor, the coupler, the turntable support with rollers, and the tray.

Here is a video of how a turntable motor should sound when you rotate it by hand.

If yours is not set to be off via the control panel, and it won't rotate or it sounds like it's grinding, etc., you may have a bad motor or plastic coupler.

To replace either, you need to unplug power, then remove the bottom cover of the oven.

You can find links to helpful exploded view diagrams and part ordering help here.

But if you've recently had trouble with the cooktop lights, then the control board may be damaged.

We regularly repair these control units for customers nationwide by mail for $39.95 postpaid in about a week or so with a one-year guarantee.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Microwave Turntable


Microwave popcorn gets VERY hot while cooking. Even though the turntable is made of temepred glass, intense heat applied in the same spot over and over can weaken the molecular structure of the glass. After so many expansions and contractions, it will crack because fatigue will cause some molecules to expand less than others, creating stress. This is yet another reason I recommend to my customers that they place the food off-center on the tray - not in the center. The oven also heats better when the food is off-center because the food is more thoroughly exposed to the microwave energy. Until you get a new tray, the photo below can help you.

Microwave does not heat food placed in the center of the turntable. Leaves a cold spot in the middle of the food.


This is normal. That's why I always recommend to my customers that the food be placed slightly off-center on the turntable. An analogy I refer to is stirring paint: If you stir paint with a stick by simply rotating the stick in the center of the can, it's far less effective than pulling the stick around an imaginary circle halfway bewteen the center and the edge.
