SOURCE: The microwave oven does not have power to the panel.

HI, this will require the skilled hands of a qualified GE tech. the damaged part here is the Magnetron assembly. this is a very sensitive part that creates radiation and the heating process as well. you will need to replace this device asap if possible.

The problem that you are having is that the magnetron inside the microwave is shorting out to ground and it will find the shortest path to reach whatever has metal in it. Replacing the magnetron will solve your problem altogether and you need not do anything else different and continue using your metal racks.

It is probably the main fuse. You'll have to remove the microwave and take it apart. There are several screws around the microwave that you'll have to remove. Just be sure when you take the scres out you know where they go back because they may or may not be same size and they have to go back exactly where they come out. Once you get the cabinet off the frame follow the power cord up until you see the fuse. It will more than likely be a ceramic fuse around 20 amps, take to maybe a lowes, home depot or radio shack and one of these will have the proper fuse.

Hi. Check the heating element. Possible there is a need to replace that one. This is the source of the problem.

Not heating


If the oven is doing everything else properly (light comes on, fan runs, turntable goes around) but there's no heat, you may have a failed magnetron tube (the microwave source). There's also a relay that controls power to the tube that may not be working correctly, or the control circuit board is bad. It's also possible one of the door switches is not working (so the oven thinks the door isn't closed), although this usually keeps the turntable and fan from running.

Microwave oven service is not for do-it-yourselfers. There are potentially deadly voltages present even with power off, and a chance of microwave leakage if repairs aren't done properly. Let a professional give an estimate to repair it, or just replace it if it's under $100. (When I was servicing these things it wasn't unusual for a repair to cost over half the price of a new one. That's one of the reasons so few shops still work on small appliances.)

Sounds like the ERC board failed. It maybe covered under warranty, check that first cause a new ERC could cost around $150-$200. Anything electric can cause the .."what the*^&% just happened syndrome.
