Well were do I start, the spark check to see if it is arking on the side panel inside, there should be a plastic cover and around it if it is black then the arking is there (this can be fix with touch up paint), meanwhile, the no heat would be cause by the bad magnetron, cap or power supply if it has one.
To see were you or going you will need to understand this is not safe, dangerous to tamper with unit,
Open the cover, at the big transformer, there will be a primery and secondary.
At the primery were two wires goes to the front were all the other wires or check to see if the voltage is present 120vac pulsing on and off when turning on the microwave, do not measure the secondery the voltage will be very high about 2k
If the voltage is present hit the big silver steal cassing at the top with a insulated tool, knowed as the magnetron to see if it will start , you will hear a mmmmm don't touch it, see if heat start inside, never leave the unit emty, put a cup of water. If it doesn't heat but the voltage is present replace the magnetron, it may also be the cap next to it,
If it has a power board after the transformer, then this would also be the problem, but I don't think you have one.

I hope this help

Microwave isn't heating as well as it did. After


The magnatron is weakened and needs replaced. A proper power test would tell how bad but sounds like you are beyond that already. Eric

OK, you may have a damaged thermostat or, the Magnetron may be damaged as well. you can test each device with a meter(ohm,volt).

Have GE JVM2050 over the range microwave, which stopped heating food and water since this morning. All other functions including light, key pad, clock, turntable work normal. The magnetron sound also


if everything works except the heating, it is most likely the mag tube is on its way out.........that is the most common reason for it not too cook.......since the microwave is a GE and it is 3.5 years old, i would say you are better off buying a new microwave, the mag tube starts at around $70.00 and up + the labor it costs too have a service person put it in........around another $60.00

MICROWAVE NOT HEATING


I have the same problem. Everything seems to work except it doesn't heat up food.
I remember last time when it was working. I pressed the start botton before I closed the door. So it didn't start automatically, and I pushed start and it worked(it still heat up the food), but it doesn't work now. Help Please!!!
I have a Whirlpool Gold GH5184XPQ.

Thanks in advance

Everything works...Except for actually heating the food


It has a bad magnetron. This is the tube that provides the microwaves to heat the food. Not too easy to replace yourself but it can be done. Cost of magnetron is probably less than $50 or $60.
