My GE Profile JVM1790 convection microwave has issue. Was using the convection portion when a small spark and flame appeared and then went out and soot and smoke was all inside and now will not heat up...


Yep, that sounds very much like the heating element burned out. It happens. You should be able to get a replacement from the manufacturer's website... or there may be a list of repair centers in the manual - pick one & try to order the heating element through them.

GE eterna spacemaker microwave won't heat


The problem is a magnetron, "heart of the system" or the inverter board, "if 7 years old or less" and possibly the keypad control board, all of these items are not cheap and lethal voltages are present.

I have a GE SpacemakerXL microwave oven - Model JVM1640WB004, S/NTZ979368S. It is no longer heating. The lights, fan and rotating tray are still working. Will this repair be so expensive that it would be...


When there is no heat, but everything else seems to work, it means the magnetron circuit has failed. The magetron is the part the generates the microwaves that heat the food. When it fails, it makes a loud buzzing sound. The replacement part can cost as much as a new oven, so it not worth fixing. Get yourself a new oven.

Ge over range microwave runs but doesnt heat


If it does not heat and makes a loud buzzing sound, it usually means that the magnetron has failed. It the part that generatest the microwaves that heat the food. Replacement costs for magnetrons is almost as much as a new oven, so it rarely makes sense to fix. Sorry.

Microwave does not heat


your magnatron tube (what heats the food) is out, if it is not still in warranty it will run 200-300 to fix, might be better to replace sorry

GE Spacesaver Microwave no longer heats JVM3670SF02


I would bet that either the first time or this time it is/was the magnetron tube, which has a 10 year warranty on the part, you pay for labor. Check and see what they did the last time, but they did have some trouble with the mags in these microwaves. If it was the mag, I'm not sure what area you are from, but $200 is a little high just for labor.

GE microwv-doesn't heat, strong electrical smell, all else ok


The most common problem would be your magnetron. Check your purchase date, magnetron's usually have a five year warranty. Not a part I recomend trying to fix yourself (high voltage ).

Please Help my GE Microwave produces no heat!!


Most of the time it seems to be the magnetron. The Magnetron is what heats the food, when you remove the magnetron sometimes you will see signs of wear like a black or brown spot on the tube sometimes there is even a hole burned through. A cheap place to find these part is Global Micro Parts in Dallas TX. Usually Magnetrons are about $30 - $45 and shipping is only 7.95 there web site is www.allapplianceparts.com
