Question about Microwave Ovens
HI, Powerpoint PP900INT Seems to be working fine, but does not heat the contents. About 7 years old. Tried leaving it unplugged for a day! Since it is integrated into the kitchen, I woul rather not replace it. Since I am broke, I would rather not replace it. Since I was an engineer, there may be something I could do, so having a look online for similar experiences. Regards Robert

SOURCE: Cannot heat
Sounds like it overheated, tripped the thermostat, then the thermostat reset. Chances are you have a bad magnetron. GE may have a campaign (not a "recall", mind you!) to offer free replacements if yours is a model that has a known history of problems with the magnetrons. I would call GE and ask them about that. *grin* GE Answer Center 1-800-626-2005 24 hours a day, 365 days a year

This may have already been dealt with, but others can benefit from an accurate, thoughtful reply to this problem.
Concerning the problem Guest is having with the fan coming on when the door is open.
This is usually caused by either a bad door switch, a loose door switch mount, or a problem on the control panel.
Even though a door switch clicks, it may still be bad inside.

Concerning the original problem of no heating:
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 conneciton on the control unit circuit board
- bad magnetron or other high voltage part

My GE spacesaver microwave all of a sudden stopped heating up things. The lights, fan, turntable, etc. work, but nothing is heating up. Any suggestions?

More than likely the magnetron has failed. This could be for a number of reason. Do you use your microwave to heat wheat packs or warm plates? If so, you may have dried the magnetron out (they use the moisture in whatever you're cooking to heat it, and plates/wheat bags have no moisture).
I'd say a trip to your local Microwave repairer could be in order. It could also be the High Voltage Fuse which has failed. Either way a repairer will be able to tell you!
