Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
It seems that the right wall inside of the microwave is absorbing most of the microwave energy. If the panels are replaceable then you might want to consider having them replaced but it probably wouldn't be worth it. Maybe buying a new microwave will save you a lot of expense and grief.

First of all, you must be sure you are using a microwave safe container. If it is not marked as such, it is not.
Try heating a cup of water in a clear glass container. If it still does not work right, your stirrer may be bad.
You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.
There should also be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.
At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.
I have a diagram at my site which helps you find & replace many GE cooktop and cavity light bulbs. It's at http://126.96.36.199/mwd/ge_lamp_replacement.jpg
If there's no obvious removable cover over the bulb (most often on the rear or side) and the owner's manual doesn't address it, then disassembly will be required.
Bulbs can be had in most grocery stores, hardware stores, home improvement centers, and big box or department stores.
Many models use halogen lamps. You must not touch the new one with your bare skin, as the oils will shorten the bulb life.

It is a good possibility that the stirrer has failed. In the top of cabinet is a round cover,there is a small round plug in the edge of it,pry plug out and put it in safe place,rotate the cover < twist locks > gently let it down and stirrer will be either setting on cover or still attached. If you notice any damage< it is a round aluminum disc that is flat > then you need a new one. If you don't see any damage put it back in < put in hole and turn until you feel it line up with shaft and push into place,< gently >.Make note of position and put cover back on < stirrer does not lock on shaft so you have to hold it up until you get cover under it in most cases. Run a short cycle and remove cover to see if it turned at all. If not the motor is bad < turns stirrer during operation>. This is the first time that question has been asked of me and it is the only thing that I can think of if it heats glass and not food.

The paint or inside in my microwave oven was bubbling up. I didn't think much of it until my husband came down with tongue cancer. He didn't smoke or drink. The only thing that was strange was the way my microwave was bubbling up inside. We were given very grim news, but in time and by swithcing hospitals, my husband is now ok and has been cancer free for 5 years. If ever my microwaves start blubbling up, I throw them out, it wasn't worth the health hazards.
