SOURCE: My GE spacemaker microwave won't heat and makes an unusual sound

I have the same problem on my oven- model JVM1640WB and called an appliance repairman who is honest and reliable (I've used him before). He said the problem is with the electrode, to fix it is roughly $300. He recommended buying a new microwave rather than fixing it.

When door open the microwave should not work at all, if the turntable and light come on with the door open , if they do , then this is an additional problem with door switch and must be fixed.

Regarding humming noise and no heath, Test the high voltage capacitor, the rectifier diode.or the magnetron.

If it additionally does not spin and no light, then check also the door switch.

The diode and capacitors can br tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, even if power is off. Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.

All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts. (here in UK).

GE Spacemaker XL 1800 Making a grinding noise. Can it be fixed or is it under warranty?


Under warranty or not? You would know that by your date of purchase receipt. I don't know the warranty arrangement in your country.
If it is making a harsh sound, you may have a short circuit magnetron or diode pack.
If it is just making a grinding noise, it could be the turntable motor. Without more information, I cannot tell.
Spare parts are available through a GE stockist or microwave repair shop.
Hope this helps.

Re: GE Microwave Oven #JVM1870SF001...turns on but will not heat-up item. Can it be the Magnetron and/or Diode is bad?


More than likely it's the magnetron and/or diode, chances are it may still be under warranty. Online owners manual states 5 year warranty on magnetron. Part only, service call and installation not included. Diode not covered. They require serial number, and will let you know if it's still under warranty. Installation appears to be simple, UNPLUG MICROWAVE THEN MAKE SURE YOU DISCHARGE CAPACITOR. INJURY OR POSSIBLE DEATH IF NOT DISCHARGED PROPERLY. Google how to install magnetron and discharge capacitor. It will save you approx $ 250 - 300 doing it yourself. Hope this helps. Be Safe

Microwave will not heat food


I have the same problem and have figured out the following:
Most likely it is the magnetron - common problem for GE's. Replacement part list price is around $180 but you can find on ebay for about $80. Replacement is "doable" but tricky because the oven needs to be removed to replace the part. The GE replacement kit part # for magnetron and stirrer is WB27X10489. Expect a service tec to charge at least $200-$225 to make the repair so complete replacement of microwave might make more sense...unfortunately.
