Did you change the diode as well, if not you need to change it

The diode is bad, no doubt about it. In most cases replacing the diode should solve the problem.

Magic chef microwave just stopped heating, can you tell where the fuse is so i can check it, and i am open for any suggestions. model # hdm111ow


Sounds like the magnetron has failed, if it were the power supply or capacitor or fuse, it would have failed to heat straight away, not faded out. Probably more economic to replace the machine.

Kenmore 1000w Not Heating Food Items


If it sounds like it is running and it lights up it is not the fuse. In my 24 years of service work I've found that the problem you are describing is cause by the failure of the magnitron ( The device that emits the microwave radiation). As your unit is a built in expensive unit I would look into replacing the magnitron. In cheap microwaves I just suggest replacement. If you need further assistance locating a replacement magnitron feel free to cotact me. It is a relatively easy part to replace. You just open the case and unplug it, unscrew it from the unit, and replace it with the new one. In most cases all you need is a philips head screwdriver and some patience. Anyway, I hope this helps you out in your decicion.

It may be a bad fuse or capicitor. I have had a time in the past with something similar. I contacted Repair Clinic.com. They were very helpful with their advice and even followed up to make sure I got things fixed okay.

after several reviews of this microwave i have found that most people are not satisfied with the model or the company. And that it seems that your problem may consist with the magnetron not being installed correctly sometimes this happens at the factory but can only be replaced by a technician. they are supposed to carry them on their truck at all times. Youll have to call GE and schedule an appt with a tech. and from other testimonies that can prove to be difficult. sorry i couldnt have been of more help and good luck

I have a problem with my microwave it is not warming things evrything looks fine the counter is also working but If you put something to warm it up it comes just the way you put


you may want to look at the magnetron inside the unit...this is what heats the food... there also sometimes a fuse attached to the magnetron it looks like a round disk with 2 wires attached to it normally the size of a quarter or a little smaller. it attaches to the magnetron which is a square looking metal object with wires coming off of it also... one of the 2 most likely the culprit...good luck to you

One surface light bulb on GE Profile microwave keeps burning out


I have the same problem. The left one burns out within a couple of hours use, the other one lasts a couple of months and is then gone. This pattern has repeated over 8 years. I replace them every now and then and then just go without until I get the urge again to fix it. Maybe smaller lower wattage lamps are worth trying...

Total power loss during use


Check the voltage on the outlet,make sure it is 115v -- 122volts max, any less will cause it shut off, make sure the polarity off the outlet is correct and it is grounded,check all of your wiring connections, if all this is ok replace unit with a different unit or different supplier of unit

Kenmore Microwave Hood Combination: over the stove Model #721.80602500


Disclaimer: I'm a DIYer, not a technician.

Our GE over-the-range microwave stopped producing heat yesterday while warming part of the T-giving feast. Everything else (fan, control panel, light) works fine.

After disassembly and testing last night, I discovered a defective "secondary door switch." Your Kenmore uses a similar switch (~$19 on-line), and that might be the problem. But it also could be other things, such as a bad thermal cut-out.

If you know anyone who's handy with a multimeter, most of the basic diagnostics seem to be pretty straightforward.
