Question about GE Microwave Ovens
If it is working but not heating, then test the high voltagecapacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine,test the control board.If turntable is not running check also the doorswitch.
The diodeandcapacitors can be tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge beforetesting, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenif power is off.Capacitorscan get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.
