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

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, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

There should be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel.

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

We're happy to help and we appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

Thanks for making your post very detailed and including the model number. That really helps! :)

With the symptoms you have, I would most strongly suspect a shorted high voltage rectifier diode or a bad magnetron.


The diode is a fairly easy & cheap do-it-yourself fix, and the mag will cost more.

If you or someone you know decide to look into it, we have critical safety information and disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa.

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:

Why does my ge profile spacemaker not heat up


There maybe so many factors. How old is your microwave. From your description, I believe you may have to change your Magnetron. Maybe the magnet is cracked.

My microwave is not heating the food. It is built into the walls of my kitchen in my condo/apartment. Can I fix this myself? How?


When the oven is running, does it make a loud buzzing or humming sound? If it does, then the problem is the magnetron, the part that generates the microwaves that heat the food. It not worth fixing since a new magnetron will cost almost as much as a new microwave. Ask your landlord that you need a new microwave oven. Sorry.
