Question about GE Spacemaker JVM1640SJ Microwave Oven
This is a built-in unit and is about 2-1/2 years old. A few weeks ago, it stopped working. Now, if we try to cook with it, there is a faint click and the light goes on, but nothing else. The turntable does not turn, and the normal sound made while cooking is absent. The timer and other functions on the control panel all seem to work, though.
The local service shop wants $60 plus time just to look at it, which hardly seems logical since I can replace the unit for less than $200. But knowing the magnatron has a 10-year warranty is frustrating, in case that's the problem.
Thanks in advance for any help or advice.
