Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
My 2.5 year old KitchenAid over-the-counter microwave will not heat. The light, fan, etc. all work. We ordered another one, installed it, and SAME PROBLEM! Help, could it be a wiring issue with the house?
Sounds like the magnetron has failed. This is the component that produces the microwaves that heats the food.
The cost of the magnetron is about 95% of the cost of a microwave oven. Most people don't, for this reason, replace the magnetron, they replace the whole oven which is probably what you will end up doing.
There is a possibility that the circuit that provides power to the magnetron is faulty and you need to take it apart, find the proper electrical leads and test them with a volt meter. To do this you have to remove it from its mounting and take it apart. It is a fairly lengthy process however.
