Re: oven not heating.

I would say that one is a bad door switch (bottom one) or a bad door switch mount.

If you or a friend decide to look into it, we have critical safety information, info on door switch diagnosis and replacement, and
disassembly information at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa:

There should be a very helpful "mini-manual" hidden inside the unit behind the control panel.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here:

Please write back with more details if you need further help.

GE Model # JVM7195SFSS microwave.

Check the internal ceramic fuse on the circuit board. Sometimes one section will work while another won't. I'm not sure if this model has a rear mounted thermal fuse, but the models with the inline thermal fuse will cause a similar issue.

Microwave oven does not heat up

This seems to be a common problem with microwaves, the problem is likely the magnetron "heats food" and the heart of the system. If the oven is five years or more I would suggest a new one.

Most likely you have a magnetron problem. Easy to replace (DYI) but make sure the high voltage capacitor is fully discharged first against the case.

Does the turntable rotate? If everything but this works (except no heat), you probably have a bad door switch. Here's a discussion of what's involved in replacing it:

If the turntable does rotate, I'd suspect a more significant failure, such as the transformer, capacitor, or magnetron. If it's any of these, it's time to replace the unit.
