This is most likely to be a fault with the Magnetron, this can be an expensive repair & can be a difficult part to replace if you are not experienced with electrical goods. I wolud recommend taking it to a local repair centre & ask for an estimate. Depending on the age & the cost of your microwave when bought, it maybe more economical to buy a new one.

GE Profile spacemaker 1800xl microwave it starts but doesn't heat, what is your best advise

The power supply to the microwave unit has burned out. This unit normally is under warranty for seven years. The real problem is that unless you take the unit into a authorized repair place it will cost you almost as much as you paid for the microwave when you purchased the unit to have a repair company to come out to your home to fix your Microwave .This happened to me and I just purchased a new microwave and got rid of the old one. If you can find a authorized repair shop , stake it in before you purchase a new one. Sorry I could not help not even for myself. .

Microwave stopped cooking. Fan works , but sounds like it is running on about 2/3 power and does not heat food. Is magnetron bad? How hard to fix myself?

Microwave stopped heating

In all likelihood the mangnetron is failing, or perhaps even the Power Supply is faulty. You need to have it serviced by a reputable service centre/man.
Ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding, and remember these days the cost of repair can equal or exceed the price of a new one
