Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
No, the filter is a static item and has nothing to do with the operation of the microwave oven. The filter only helps to neutralize odors when the circulating fan is running and doesn't even affect the oven air, etc.
It is possible that an internal fuse has blown and is preventing the operation of the magnatron, which is what excites the food and creates the heating action. Otherwise, it is possible that the magnatron unit has failed and will need a somewhat costly repair. You can look in the owners manual to see if there is a FAQ or troubleshooting tip section that can provide some things to try first.
My experience has shown that it is sometimes less costly for a consumer (without repair experience) to replace the oven rather than repair it, depending on the age and overall condition at the time of breakdown. I always check for the internal fuses first thou, as they are cheap and fairly easy to replace with a little bit of repair sense.
