Question about Maytag MMC5000 Microwave Oven

GE microwaveJVM1410 won't heat food/ Everything else works

Like the subject say's it just won't heat the food. Fan, light's rotisiree & everything seem to run normal. I'm thinking it may be the power diode, but I'm not an appliance tech, was a telephone tech & know how to replace diodes & resistors & the like. Just enough to get me in tbl., but I think I could fix it if led in the right direction, or could just send in the board to be fixed.
Thanx, Tim

Re: GE microwaveJVM1410 won't heat food/ Everything else...

Generally, the most common causes of a failure to heat are:

- bad door switches or door switch mounts
- loose connection at the magnetron
- problem or loose connection on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part such as high-voltage rectifier diode

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and
replacement, and disassembly information at our site, linked here on Fixya:
