First of all, the magnetron should have a 5-9 year warranty.

I would contact GE Customer Service at http://www.geappliances.com/service_and_support/contact/

If you or a friend decide to work on it, we have *critical* safety, disassembly, and troubleshooting info at our site, and our link is at our listing here on FixYa: http://tinyurl.com/yzjozk

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383

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

I have a GE profile oven/microwave combo appliance. Microwave is 1.4 cuft and needs megatron and transformer. Will those parts for any ge 1.4 cuft microwave work in my microwave?


GE profile is a series, not a model. Look inside the microwave and you will see a sticker with the model number on it. Take that number and look it up online you will find many options for the part for your unit. Why do you need both? typically with GE it is usually the mag and maybe the rectifier. If a transformer goes bad it typically burns up and smells horrible. I mostly find bad mags on GE, the ones they use are not very good. OM75P = junk

Megatron is broken no power, microwave will not heat


You can go to the mfg and ask for a number for the megatron tube if you wish to tackle this yourself....or send it out for repair...or purchaes a new unit. The advantages of purchasing a new unit is the warranty. The cost of repair is typically not balanced in the consumer's favor unless you are a talented DIY guy!

GE Spacemaker brand new, just installed will not heat anything


Have you tested the electricl outlet to b e sure it is working? If so: Return it! The unit is defective and the megatron tube either got broken, wasn't installed, or something.

Ge profile 2.0 microwave runs but does not heat


Replace the megatron tube; or replace the unit. GE will have a list of tubes. Remove the panel inside the unit to expose the tube. Get the number off the tube and find the replacement on the GE website.

I have a GE jvm1790 microwave that when its pluged in, the magnatron fan runs with the interior light is on constantly. I can't start either the microwave or convection. Everything stops when the door is...


The megatron tube is not working. The microwave should turn off when the door is opened for safety. If it is still under warranty, return it. If not, you may consider replacing the unit. I know its expensive, but its just taking up cabinet space tonight.

Danby microwave does not heat food and makes loud constant noise


IF the noise is a sound coming from the oven area, its the megatron tube. Typically, replacing the megatron tube is more expensive than replacing wiht a new unit and a new warranty.

Doesn't heat the food


The part you need is sometimes call a megatron, they may call it something now, but its the power that radiates through the unit. I think this may be the culprit Sorry but this is not a cheep fix. you may want to do a cost comparison . This happened to me only after the warrentee had expired . good luck with it. DFD

Sumbeam microwave SMW714


In this case I'm suspecting a bad magnetron that's emitting electrical interference or a problem on the control board.

I would contact Westinghouse Small Kitchen Appliances at 800-245-0600 or 800-947-3745 or visit here.

Good luck.
