Question about GE Hotpoint RVM1535 Microwave Oven
here are some things to look for
If the power is on, but it does not work check to make sure the door closes and aligns properly. Microwave door switches have metal terminals on the end that make contact with the door hook or latch. This completes the circuit which allows the microwave oven to run and without this contact the microwave will not operate. A simple misalignment might be breaking the circuit causing the microwave not to operate. If you suspect that the thermal fuse has blown, call a professional appliance repair person. Even an unplugged microwave oven can kill or seriously injure someone. This is because there is a high energy capacitor inside the microwave oven case. If it is not discharged properly, you could be electrocuted.
If your microwave buzzes or hums but does not produce any heat, it could be a faulty defective diode, triode, high-voltage capacitor, or even a faulty magnetron. However, this problem usually means a bad means a bad magnetron, followed by a bad diode. Call a professional appliance repair person for assistance.

Please listen when tbirdfan1 warns about the dangers of stored electricity in the microwave, But yes, the high voltage fuse, the magna trom assembly or the protective diode would be the forst things to check and replace. If you dont know how to discharge a high voltage capatitor, please seek advice of a qualified expert. Good Luck.

Microwaves are a quick, convenient
solution to the hassle of preparing and cooking hot dinners. They are
popular appliances with students and large families where food often
needs to be prepared fast. Microwaves use radio wave technology
harnessed through an antenna, known as a "magnetron," to create friction
between food or liquid molecules, causing them to heat up. Some
microwaves can cease to function properly, resulting in the appliance
running but failing to produce any heat.
