Please note that FixYa is not currently notifying us Experts when Clarification Requests are answered.

To allow us to help you effectively (at no charge), please post a
NEW problem to FixYa, and please include your brand name and the full model number from the tag in or on the unit, your symptoms, as well as the answers to these questions:

- When you try to microwave are the inside light, internal cooling fan and turntable all working?

- Is there any unusual noise or is it louder or quieter than normal?

(A loud buzz, hum, or groan is usually a shorted high voltage rectifier diode, but a sound like gurgling into an empty coffee mug is one symptom of a failed magnetron, and yet the mag can be bad without that sound.)

We have a sound clip here of what a microwave should sound like when the cooling fan and high voltage section are working.


We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

GE spacemaker microwave does not heat food; fine otherwise.


Most likely the hi volt energy components. Usually the hi volt diode or hi volt capacitor. There is hi energy stores here so be careful or do not attempt it. A person skilled in electronics, tv repair, or microwaves can handle it . It is usually worth repairing. The other parts that could be the problem are the magnatron or the hi volt transformer; if so, you might think twice before repair (the price will be higher).Goodluck, Macgivor

Microwave not heating food


It's most likely the Magnetron. The are not very easy to install and quite expensive. Older models magnetrons cost about 80 bucks from GE. It's probably not something you would want to try and repair yourself. Call a GE service person.
