SOURCE: New microwave; loud fan when heating items

Since you say it's new, it should be under warranty. I would call GE (see your owner's manual) to get a local authorized service center. Then while you're on the phone with the service center, you can start it up and hold the phone close to it to demonstrate to the technician how loud it is. They should be able to tell you if it will be covered under warranty so you get it fixed free.

SOURCE: Microwave not heating food and is making loud noise.

You have burned out the magnatron (heating element) which is common on GE microwaves. most service companies will charge about 200-250 to replace it

SOURCE: My Cuisinart Microwave's carousel doesn't turn.

This could be a very simple repair. The carousel is rotated by a small motor located under the bottom panel of the oven. This small motor has a coupler attached to it, that the glass tray sits on. The motor can be accessed by performing the following steps:

1. Unplug the microwave oven and open the oven door. Remove the glass tray.

2. Remove the small coupler by pulling straight up on it.

3. Close the oven door and locate the bottom panel screws UNDER the microwave oven.

4. Remove the screws and the bottom panel will open (some are hinged from the back).

5. Remove the connector plug and mountuing screws to the motor and that's it.

6. Re-install new motor using the steps provided in reverse order.

NOTE: This repair can be performed with the oven in place if it is mounted above a range. No need to uninstall. Just make sure the power is turned off to the unit before servicing anything inside.

Replacement motors can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartsdirect.com
appliancepartspros.com
pcappliancerepair.com
repairclinic.com

All these sites offer great service, with competitive pricing, so shop around for the best deal. If you have any questions, or require additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: GE JVM1850CH06 microwave no heat with loud humming sound

With the details you described, the high voltage diode might be shorted( usually HVR 1X). It is connected from the Capacitor and the chassis, or else the capacitor is the one at fault,but not common .

Microwave is loud


It is normal to have a moderate sound, but if extremely loud it indicates trouble with the magnetron, should be returned for a replacement.

My microwave comes on but does not heat. What's wrong with it?


To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptoms ("runs but no heat"), as well as the answers to these questions:

- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

(A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.)

We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.
