    Mine will not heat and the turntable does not rotate. The light comes on for the timer countdown, but not a noise. Does all the other functions.

    All of sudden it has quit heating.  It comes on and seems to be working, but when you check the food, it is still completely cold.  Is there an easy fix?  I am thinking having somebody come out to fix it would cost almost as much as getting a new one.

Most of the time it is the Magnetron , The Magnetrons should be covered by GE on the newer models, I have had about seven of these GE Spacemakers go out, severeal of them I dont even know where to begin to look for the problem. no power no nothing and I have replaced evereything, GE has the worst Microwaves. If they dont cover the part Global Micro parts www.allapplianceparts.com sells magnetrons for cheap around $40.00 with shipping included depending on the model.

I have a GE Spacemaker Over-The-Range Microwave Model #JVM1533WD002 that has worked perfectly for 10 years. Now everything still works, except it doesn't heat the food. Where is the fuse located and how...


A common symptom of a failed magnetron is a failure to heat with everything else (magnetron fan, stirrer, timer, etc.) working fine. Check the GE manufacture date for the unit on its nameplate to determine the age of the magnetron. For GE models of the past, magnetrons had a 10 year parts replacement warranty. Magnetrons can be expensive, so you need to weigh all your options, i.e., repair versus replacement, before you commit to one solution.

Everything works but food does not heat up I have a ge over the range microwave


If everything seems to work, except cooking the food it is probably the magnetron which sells for $100-$150 for the part alone.

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00
