Re: Danby micro: turns, lights, doesn't heat

Heating for that long may have damaged the magnetron.

I would suggest you contact Danb for assistance:

When unplugging it for half a minute or so (this should reset all settings) won't help, it must be defect. When you are convinced you did press the right buttons and you are in the correct program you don't need to unplug. But for that you have to be sure it is not switched to oven. In 30 seconds it won't be warm enough to heat your coffee

Microwave stopped working. No power

please follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Line Fuse

Every microwave oven has a line fuse. This fuse is designed to blow if too much current is drawn through the microwave circuitry. The fuse can be replaced, but the underlying issue should still be investigated and resolved. Otherwise the new fuse will blow also.
Main Control Board

If the microwave is not working the main control board may be defective. This is not common. When a microwave stops working the problem is usually the line fuse or within the high voltage circuit; either the high voltage capacitor, diode, transformer or magnetron.

Thermal Fuse

If the microwave is not working the thermal fuse may have blown. It can be tested for continuity. Watch our fuse testing video for more information.

If the microwave is not working the thermoprotector may have tripped. This is a safety device to prevent the microwave from overheating. It can be tested for continuity to see if it's blown.1_24_2013_4_57_51_pm.gif

Microwive not heatin

Ufortunately the magnetron is the most likely problem, "heats food" and is the heart of the microwave oven. If the device is five years old or more cheaper to replace the item.

Runs but doesn't heat replaced two fuses and magnetron still doesn't heat

Here is your free answer in under 10 minutes ...

You have a faulty door safety interlock switch. I wish you would have searched your problem here before you spent all that money on the magnetron. I have answered this question dozens of times here at this site.

When the oven runs but doesn't heat, more often than not it is nothing more than a faulty micro switch in the door latch system. When the switch doesn't work properly, the oven doesn't know the door is closed. If the door isn't closed, the oven will not energize the magnetron. Capacitors and magnetrons are **** and expensive answers but these items are extremely tough. It is the tiny contacts in the micro switch that can not stand the repeated abuse given them when we (read me in that number too) open the oven while it is energized causing a repeated flash across the contacts.

Thanks for your question @

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

The microwave shuts off after 10 minutes and takes 30 minutes to come back on. Help!!!

It indicates the magnetron is getting to hot "that heats the food" when that happens the thermal fuse opens to protect the magnetron from over heating and shuts it down and waits until it is cooler before it resets. The other problem could be the fan not working or not properly that blows on the magnetron, it helps keeps the temperature regulated so it can run hard. If it turns out the fan is fine, then the magnetron is slowly breaking down until it becomes unusable, which means it will need to be replaced "pricey" or buy new "probably cheaper"

My microwave starts however food does not heat up.

Micro wave as the name suggests produces heat when the micro waves aimed at an object causes the water molecules inside the object to vibrate hence producing heat.The gadget responsible is the magnetron. If your magnetron is not receiving ht voltage or receiving but faulty, then your micro wave wont work please take precaution when opening micro wave due to high voltage caps that remain charged sometimes even when it is off.check the high voltage fuse/ diode and capacitor if they are fine and the step up trans former o.k then the only option is to replace the magnetron
