Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
I have a Frigidaire Microwave OTR FMV145KS2, and is't not heating either food or liquids
Chances are it's a defective high voltage rectifier diode or magnetron.
There should 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.
Here are some links you or someone you know can use for test help, but read their safety warnings first:
(if it's not shorted or burned, it's probably okay)
You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.
You can download Frigidaire owner's manuals and installation instructions can be downloaded through the links here. where you can also locate a nearby authorized servicer if you choose.
The magnetron has a 10-year part warranty, but you would have to pay labor.
If nothing else, you can save about $75 by taking it to the shop yourself.
We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
