Question about GE XL1800 1100 Watts Microwave Oven
My over the stove GE XL1800 microwave just stopped heating yesterday after working in the morning. The light comes on and the timer runs down as if it is working but it does not heat. After trying a few times to see if it corrected itself, it now has a loud sound associated with it when you turn it on to cook something. The fan still works perfectly with no sounds and also the carousel turns as well. I assume it is the heating element related to the microwave and wanted to know if this is repairable?
You say it has aloud hum to it? And everything works but no heat.Im going to give you a list of things it could be and you'll have to take microwave apart to do the work. Beforre you start get some small trays or pill bottles to put screws in. Make sure when you take a screw out you know where it goes back because all the screws may not be same length. First, You may have a blown fuse in the HV transformer primary circuit, The HV transformer is the largest thing you'll see when you take the cabinet of the frame.Second,bad connections for the magnetron filament the magnetron will have what looks like fins or louvers around it.look for bad wire connections. Third, could be a faulty thermal protector or fuse, More than likely its either going to be the HV transformer or the magnetron thats bad.
