HELLO. The solution is to test the magnetron as explain below.
* 1 Fill a mug with room temperature water from your kitchen sink.
* 2 Place the mug of water on the glass cooking plate inside the microwave.
* 3 Set the microwave on "High" for one minute and press "Start." You should hear the magnetron hum while it is working.
* 4 Remove the mug carefully from the oven by its handle. The magnetron is working properly if the water is hot or warm. Contact the manufacturer for repair or a replacement oven if the water is still cold.
If your micro looks like it is running and you get no heat than it is your magnitron tube. This is the most expensive part of the micro, if it is in warranty GE will fix it, if not it will be cheaper to replace it.
If it sounds like it is running and it lights up it is not the fuse. In my 24 years of service work I've found that the problem you are describing is cause by the failure of the magnitron ( The device that emits the microwave radiation). As your unit is a built in expensive unit I would look into replacing the magnitron. In cheap microwaves I just suggest replacement. If you need further assistance locating a replacement magnitron feel free to cotact me. It is a relatively easy part to replace. You just open the case and unplug it, unscrew it from the unit, and replace it with the new one. In most cases all you need is a philips head screwdriver and some patience. Anyway, I hope this helps you out in your decicion.
