SOURCE: my GE JVM1842 has an unusually buzzing sound and

That sound usually means you either need to take it to the shop or get a replacement. Yhr buzzing sound is either the big tansformer found inside or the magnetron.

If you have any warrenty this is definitly covered by it. If you don't while it is repairable, the repair cost could exeed the cost of a new replacement. So if you take it to get fixed get an repair estimate before spending any money.

Ge over range microwave runs but doesnt heat


If it does not heat and makes a loud buzzing sound, it usually means that the magnetron has failed. It the part that generatest the microwaves that heat the food. Replacement costs for magnetrons is almost as much as a new oven, so it rarely makes sense to fix. Sorry.

Rest all works,but not heating micowave xl1800


When the microwave does not heat the food, it means that the magnetron circuit has failed. It the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. Often the part fails by shorting out causing a loud buzzing sound when you try to microwave something. The replacement part usually costs almost as much as a new oven, so it rarely cost effective to replace. Sorry.

Microwave oven: GE Spacemaker 1400 not heating. Model number JVM1430AB001. Need guidance on troubleshooting and repair of unit. Thanks!


If the oven is making a loud buzzing noise when you try to warm food and the food remains cold, it usually means that the magnetron has failed. Not usually worth fixing since the parts alone can cause as much as a new oven.

Ge microwave jvm160wj01 was working and suddenly started buzzing, gave bad electric/burnt smell and buzzes. Still buzzes and does not seem to heat now.


Sounds like the magnetron just shorted out. Its the part the generates the microwaves that heat the food. Buzzing sounds are a symptom of a shorted mag. Usually not worth fixing since the magnetron costs almost as much as a new oven. Sorry.

Doesn't heat up food


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Microwave not heating properly is caused by a power relay going bad, cold solder joint on the board and/or magnetron (this is only if it makes a loud hum/buzz sound). Also the door hooks and the door-release button should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.



Thanks

GE Spacemaker XL1800 hum/buzz noise but heating works


the magnetron needs replacement my friend, although you can still heat up food but eventually it will soon fail.
