There could be controller or magnetron failure or an open fuse.

    if you have lights and a turntable working it is the magnetron or the fuse protecting it.

  • Ted H May 05, 2014

    A failed magnetron or open fuse seem like reasonable answers BUT...you should receive an error message or error code if either of these had occurred. I think you should also receive an error code if a wire had been dislodged in the magnetron power circuit. So, I'm going to suggest your has a relay that turns the magnetron 'ON' and that this has failed or is not being energized by the control electronics.

SOURCE: everything works on the microwave but wont heat food.

You need to remove the cover, (Power Unplugged!!) look for and check a long glass fuse (usually in a plastic housing)
It's 5000 volt and less then one amp rating.
It's a small wire inside fuse so check it with a meter.
If it's ok, it's most likely the Magnetron which is usually half the price of the machine.
If the fuse has blown, see if there is a black diode, 30-40 mm long, one end is screwed to the case.
Disconnect one end, If you have continuity both directions, it's failed causing the fuse to blow.
Replace that diode / high voltage rectifier and then the fuse.
You should be back in business.

GE microwave model JVM1750DM does everything except heat food. Worked this morning fine.


Chances are the magnetron has failed, "heats food" the other possibility is the high voltage capacitor and diode. Repairs will approach the cost of a new microwave oven.

Sadly your microwave has done it's last cooking. The mechanism you need to make it cook again would cost you more than a replacement microwave.

I remember last time when it was working. I pressed the start botton before I closed the door. So it didn't start automatically, and I pushed start and it worked(it still heat up the food), but it doesn't work now. Help Please!!!
I have a Whirlpool Gold GH5184XPQ.

Thanks in advance
